Senior Director of impeachment Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who opposed certification of election results in 2017, provided a video clip showing select clips from the January 6 protest on Capitol Hill, on the first day of impeachment. During the debate about the constitutionality of the process.

“What would the January exception mean for posterity if it were granted? I'll show you,” he said, followed by a montage that tried to show that former President Trump was encouraging his followers to commit illegal acts on the US Capitol.
