House Democrats unveiled a deceptively edited montage at the first day of the second Senate impeachment trial for former president Donald Trump.
Watch the full video below:
There was one thing that people immediately noticed about the montage: It dropped the quote where Donald Trump told protesters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
Convenient that they left this out of the opening video montage at the sham impeachment trial.

Listening to the impeachment trial
Amazing how deceptive the editing is from the very beginning
Raskin's video includes President Trump saying "we are going to walk down to the Capitol" while omitting his request for his supporters to "peacefully make their voices heard"

Is this Senate Impeachment video exhibit serious? They cut the part where Trump said "peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard"! Also, breach happened 20 minutes before end of speech & it was over a mile away. Real Trump supporters were listening to his speech. A sham!

There was even more blowback:
Just watched them play a clip of a video at the #impeachment trial of someone smashing a window. But they didn’t play the whole clip that showed people shouting “Antifa” and then Trump supporters taking the guy out. Manipulative and deceptive hearing as expected.

Democrats just showed in their own video timeline that the Capitol was breached while Pres Trump was still speaking.#impeachment

It also didn’t show Capitol Police holding the doors open for protesters or moving barricades.
The reaction at the White House is telling.
WH official tells me Ron Klain and others already rolling eyes and shaking heads at the edited footage than can easily be countered by the defense team.

The House Impeachment Managers’ video montage shown to the U.S. Senate would get you banned for ‘deceptive editing’ if it were about a Democratic president.
Trump’s legal team will fortunately have their chance to respond and to give the American people the truth. If the mainstream media decide to show it.
