Democratic impeachment managers have been caught showing manipulated images of Twitter posts as "evidence" during President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, according to reports.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has been accused of faking supposed screenshots of tweets as exhibits during his Senate presentation as he attempted to paint a picture of Trump inciting the Capitol riot on social media.

A complaint from a Twitter user emerged after her tweet had been used by Swalwell and she realized her post had been digitally altered to include a verified blue check next to her name.

A senior impeachment aide responded by claiming the inclusion of a fake blue check verification mark on the tweets was an "accident."

The tweets showed comments from Jennifer Lynn Lawrence who was retweeted by President Trump.

The two tweets that were exhibited included blue check marks next to Lawrence's name.

Blue checks show the user's identity has been verified and also connote a certain status.

"The final graphic accidentally had a blue verification checkmark on it, but the substance of it was entirely accurate," the aide said.

The aide added: "If anything, it is further evidence of President Trump’s attention to and knowledge of what was being openly planned on January 6 by his followers, even those without Twitter verifications."

Singling out Swalwell, Lawrence tweeted earlier this week: "I’ve never been verified on Twitter so why did my Tweet used in the fact-free impeachment include a verification badge?"

In an open letter, Lawrence rejected Swalwell's false implication that she meant to bring troops to the Capitol.

The California congressman was criticizing her claim that she would bring "calvary," but purportedly misconstruing it as horses or "cavalry."

Calvary, according to the Gospels of the Bible, is a site outside the walls of Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified.

Swalwell mispronounced "Calvary" as "cavalry" while reading her tweet and proceeded to claim on Feb. 10: "This was not just any old protest.

"President Trump was inciting something historic.

"The cavalry was coming, and he was organized."

"I don’t do horses ok (I’m from New York)," Lawrence wrote.

"I’m not in the army either so the use of the word cavalry would have been pretty stupid.

"It’s a wonder Congressman Swalwell didn’t pick up on it.

"Bringing the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ (AKA the salvation of everyone) back to Washington DC was EXACTLY why we organized three successful protests on November 14, December 12, and January 5th.

"We believe our sacred institutions have rotted through with bloat and corruption PRECISELY because they have separated the State from God."
