Donald Trump impeachment: Capitol riot danger examined in trial's third day

From Morning Report, 7:23 am on 12 February 2021

The third day of Donald Trump's impeachment trial has begun in Washington DC.

The prosecution team is allowed a further eight hours to convince Senate jurors that the former US president incited last month's insurrection at the Capitol Building.

On Thursday they unleashed a series of never-seen-before videos of the 6 January riot.

It included footage of former vice president Mike Pence and numerous White House staffers fleeing the senate chamber moments before it was breached.
