After presenting dramatic new footage of the Capitol insurrection, House impeachment managers will finish making their arguments on Thursday, the third day of the trial against former President Trump. They will describe the “harm” inflicted on the country by the insurrection attempt, one aide to House managers said, and will also discuss Trump’s “lack of remorse.”

Managers on Wednesday meticulously laid out how close the pro-Trump mob came to putting lawmakers’ lives in real danger. After the House team wraps up, Trump’s defense team will have a chance to respond.

Follow along with the proceedings below.
