Trump supporters storm the US Capitol during Joe Biden certification ceremony — PHOTOS & VIDEO

Terrorists broke into the Capitol building and assaulted police and security officers

Rioters supporting President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the election unleashed violent mayhem in and around the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon (Jan. 06, 2021) as members of Congress were debating objections to the Electoral College count.

The extremists — or more correctly — the terrorists, broke into the Capitol building and assaulted police and security officers. Members of the House and Senate have been evacuated. Some lawmakers were told to don gas masks as security unleashed tear gas into the Capitol rotunda. Rioters broke windows, tried to break down doors, and scaled walls.

WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 06: U.S. Capitol police officers point their guns at a door that was vandalized in the House Chamber during a joint session of Congress on January 06, 2021 in Washington, DC. Congress held a joint session today to ratify President-elect Joe Biden’s 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump. A group of Republican senators said they would reject the Electoral College votes of several states unless Congress appointed a commission to audit the election results.

The rioters stormed the Capitol after Trump directed ire at lawmakers, particularly Republicans, and Vice President Mike Pence for not supporting his coup attempt. He offered a weak plea on Twitter to “support our Capitol Police” in the midst of the chaos. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser imposed a 6 p.m. curfew in the city.

Reporters on the scene captured video of the pandemonium consuming the Capitol.
