Rep. DeGette: 'The attack was done for Donald Trump'

"This was not a hidden crime," DeGette said. "The president told them to be there, so they actually believed they would face no punishment."

DeGette showed video featuring one rioter telling another as they entered a congressional office: "He'll be happy - what do you mean, we're fighting for Trump."

Democrats making the case for Donald Trump's conviction for inciting the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 focused on Thursday on the former president's role in assembling and inflaming the rioters and the damage wrought in the rampage.
