Amid the closed-circuit television (CCTV) video being shown during the impeachment trial Wednesday was a video of two officers holding an attacker at gunpoint while members slowly made their way out of the chamber and to safety.
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) showed another video of members making their way from another part of the chamber. He explained that he paced it out and the members were 58 steps from being taken hostage or killed by attackers.
It comes after a video showed Vice President Mike Pence was rushed to a secure location. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) was saved by Officer Eugene Goodman, who came running from the attackers that Romney was walking toward. He stopped the senator and showed him where the safe location was.
