The entire team of democratic impeachment lawyers was tip-top. Lead impeachment Manager Representative Jamie Raskin Democratic Representative of Maryland, and Delegate Stacey Plaskett of the U.S. Virgin Islands, executed their duties with precision and clarity. The basis of their argument rests on the fact that Trump manipulated plus primed thousands of his supporters to storm U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Democratic prosecuting team argument threw light on the reality that the cause and effect of January 6's insurrection correlate to Donald J Trump. Furthermore, because pro-Trumpers had more of a propensity of being affiliated with White supremacy organizations like the "Proud Boys," Klu Klux Klan, & "Women for America First," provided more fodder for the democratic prosecuting team.

Per Booker's report on NPR on February 10, "Lead House impeachment manager Jamie Raskin, D-Md., introduced Plaskett, whom he taught in law school, calling it "a moment of special pride" for him. Delegate Stacy Plaskett was once one of the representatives Jamie Raskin of Maryland's students. Plaskett as a child lived in housing projects in Brooklyn, NY. "The four-term congresswoman," Plaskett, " ticked off examples, including" an incident where #45 "refused to denounce the far-right group the Proud Boys, in September 2019." Plaskett also read at trial "Trump's own words from the rally: "'We're going to the Capitol,'" she quoted. "'We fight. We fight like hell. And if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore.' "




Plaskett said that for all these reasons, the former president must be convicted and disqualified from seeking federal office again." Per a news report in The NY Times by Glenn Thrush, "Mr. Raskin, as he did a day earlier, cast his assertion in deeply personal terms. He quoted one of the Black officers who battled the mob that day describing his despair at being subjected to racist taunts from a crowd of attackers that was, according to witness accounts and video taping. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/10/us/politics/racism-capitol-riot.html



Colorado Congressman Joe Neguse advanced Raskin's argument by confirming that the Trump fueled racist insurrectionist were indeed overwhelmingly made up of white participants. Per Deguse Insurrectionist "brandished Confederate Flags inside the Capitol, something that never happened; during the Civil War era." Plus, they elevated a giant noose outside of the Capitol building. That was as big and as apparent as a burning cross. (Above Colorado (D) Congressman Joe Neguse)



Trump's second impeachment trial continues for its third day on Thursday, February 11. Senators will be considering whether to convict the former president of incitement of insurrection after Capitol Building was bum-rushed on January 6 by Trump followers. Leaving some people mortally wounded and others impaired.
