WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden says he’s watched coverage of Donald
Trump’s impeachment trial and thinks “some minds may have been changed” after
prosecutors showed gripping and graphic video of the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol.
Biden tells reporters while he didn’t view any of the Senate trial live, he’d seen the morning news.
He says the Senate “has a very important job to complete.” His press secretary said
later that “the footage was just a reminder of how shocked and saddened” Biden
was on the day rioters stormed the Capitol. It’s a notable shift in tone after the
new president spent much of the week doing his best to avoid the issue.
