On Tuesday, with President Donald Trump's impeachment trial for incitement of insurrection set to begin, multiple news sources reported that House Democrats plan to reveal previously unseen evidence implicating the former president in the invasion of the U.S. Capitol.
According to CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju, House impeachment managers are saying they are confident they have a "devastating" case against Trump. It is expected their case will include video footage of the rioters and testimony from people present at the invasion.
It is widely expected that Democrats do not currently have the votes to convict Trump, as 45 Republicans have signed onto a resolution attempting to declare it unconstitutional to remove a former president — a position many mainstream legal experts say is wrong.
While Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) has suggested not every Republican who considers the trial unconstitutional has made up their mind on the merits, CNN reports that others, like Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), believe the final vote will largely line up with the resolution on constitutionality, which would be insufficient to convict Trump even if all 5 Republicans who consider the trial constitutional vote to do so.
