Was the attack on the U.S. Capitol an attempted coup?


On Jan. 13, the House impeached President Donald Trump for inciting the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Many have argued that his efforts amounted to an attempted coup. Was it?

Former president Donald Trump stands trial before the Senate this week on an impeachment charge that accuses him of inciting the deadly January 6 riot at the US Capitol.

His lawyers have set out a range of legal and factual arguments, in a 78-page memorandum, that they intend to make at trial.
