"This attack is not about one speech. Most of you men would not have your wives with one attempt at talking to her," Plaskett said while arguing that the Jan. 6 riot would have never occurred without Trump.

“It took numerous tries. You had to build it up,” she continued. “That's what the president did, as well. He put together the group that would do what he wanted, and that was to stop the certification of the election so that he could retain power to be president of the United States in contravention of an American election.”

Democrats would need 17 GOP senators to join them in convicting Trump for inciting the riot, which currently seems unlikely.
