Security footage broadcast for the first time Wednesday at former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial shows how close Capitol rioters got to officials on Jan. 6 — with a sole police officer holding them at bay long enough to allow then-Vice President Mike Pence to evacuate.

US Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman is shown in the new footage warning a wandering Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) to turn around and take shelter as rioters smashed windows one floor below.

Video of the initial break-in from the exterior point of view previously was shown by news organizations, but the new footage shows an initial trickle of protesters break and jump through windows before opening locked doors for compatriots.
