Earlier this week, impeachment managers presented never-before-released security camera footage of the Capitol attack. The clips were recorded in and around the Capitol and show the mob breaking into the building and surging through hallways in an attempt to find the House and Senate chambers, specific members of Congress and then-Vice President Mike Pence. 

The footage also shows Pence and his family being rushed out of the Senate chamber to safety as the rioters were already inside the Capitol. The trial is scheduled to run through the week.
