Democrats: Trump Incitement Started Early

The nine House impeachment managers prosecuting former President Donald Trump will lay out their case Wednesday, contending that Trump’s incitement of the mob that attacked the Capitol began much earlier with his false claims of election fraud, according to aides who briefed reporters.

Although attention has focused mostly on Trump’s fiery rhetoric on Jan. 6, the House Democrats presenting their case will look at his months of claims that the election would be stolen and, later, that he won it despite the results, inspiring “Stop the Steal” rhetoric before the attack.

The managers, who defended the constitutionality of the trial Tuesday with vivid video recreating the attack, also plan to show more video taken from Capitol security cameras.

The House members plan to finish presenting their case on Thursday, not using all 16 hours allotted for them before Trump’s lawyers get their turn.
