Trump 'sided with the bad guys' -Rep. Cicilline

Donald Trump's historic post-presidency impeachment trial began in the Senate on Tuesday (February 9), with Democrats who are hoping to disqualify him from again holding public office again showing graphic video of last month's deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol that he is charged with inciting.

The dramatic proceedings in the 100-seat Senate focused upon the question of whether holding a trial after Trump has left office, as he did on Jan. 20, violates the U.S. Constitution, which allows for impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors."

Rhode Island Representative Cicilline used some of Trump's tweets to show that "context matters" and said that after the Capitol assault Trump, in a tweet, "sided with the bad guys."
