A House impeachment manager claims former President Trump put U.S. national security at risk by inciting an insurrection at the Capitol. San Antonio Democrat Joaquin Castro said foreign adversaries are using the deadly attack to justify their own anti-democratic behavior.

Castro says Trump gave the Chinese government an opening to create a “false equivalency” between Hong Kong protesters and what Castro calls violent insurrectionists. He added that the world is watching to see if the rule of law will prevail over mob rule.
