"The footage, recorded by Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra, a documentary filmmaker, was shown during the committee's 10th hearing as an illustration of the president's inaction in the face of grave danger posed by the rioters to the lawmakers forced into hiding inside," the Associated Press reported.
"It wasn't until the evening that the Capitol would be cleared and work would resume. The news that Congress would be able to reconvene to finish its work in certifying the election results was delivered to the congressional leaders not by Trump but by Vice President Mike Pence," it added.
