NEW VIDEO: Security footage shows horrific and harrowing nature of Capitol attack | FULL SEQUENCE. The House Democrats prosecuting Donald Trump's impeachment case unveiled harrowing new video footage on Wednesday lending a new perspective to just how close the rioters came to then-Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. senators as they breached the Capitol on Jan. 6.

The new footage, released on the second day of Trump’s Senate trial, takes advantage of Capitol security cameras positioned around the complex, depicting both the violent intentions of the mob and the heroics of several Capitol Police officers, including Eugene Goodman, who had diverted the mob away from senators on the chamber floor.

The new footage aims to drive home the Democrats’ argument that the former president had purposefully stirred up his supporters with claims of a stolen election, then encouraged them to march on the Capitol to block the vote certifying the victory of his opponent, Joe Biden.

The video shows a group of violent Trump supporters overwhelming Capitol Police and charging through a barricade set up at the West Front of the Capitol. In previously unreleased audio of internal Capitol Police dispatches, officers can be heard frantically warning of breaches and calling for reinforcements.

“They're throwing metal poles at us,” one officer shouts.

At 1:49 p.m., the breach was formally declared a riot.

Among the revelations from the new footage: Goodman is seen racing down a second floor hallway toward the Senate chamber, where he bumps into Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who is fleeing toward the Rotunda. Goodman appears to redirect Romney back toward the chamber — and safety.
