House impeachment manager Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Colo., delivered closing arguments in the second impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump, who is charged with inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Neguse stated that the points raised by Trump's impeachment defense team are "distractions."
"The argument that because President Trump has left office he shouldn't be impeached for conduct committed while he was in office doesn't make sense," Neguse said. "Why would the constitution include the impeachment power at all if the criminal justice system serves as a suitable alternative once a president leaves office? ... Impeachment is a remedy separate and apart from the criminal justice system."

House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team offered their final statements in the impeachment trial on Feb. 13. The Senate will vote on whether to convict Trump on a charge of inciting the Capitol attack. Trump was impeached by the House in January, while he was still in office.
