Trump Rioters Make Their Way Inside The Capitol Building (Photos)

On Wednesday, Donald Trump’s rioters breached the US Capitol as lawmakers were finalizing the Electoral College votes that would make the results of the 2020 presidential election official.

Elijah Schaffer tweeted, “BREAKING: Trump supporters have breached the Capitol building, tearing down 4 layers of security fencing and are attempting to occupy the building–fighting federal police who are overrun.”

Hundreds of rioters gathered around the perimeter of the Capital and proceeded to push through barriers, while tussling with officers in full riot gear. About 90 minutes later, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Shortly after, the House floor was evacuated by police, CNN also reports.

In the photos and videos circulating social media, many of the rioters have guns. They’re also taking selfies in the Capitol and holding flags that read, “Trump is my president.”

As you may know, Trump may be facing a second impeachment due to his part in the riot. It is said that his speech, before the extremists took over the federal building, incited the actions that followed shortly after he spoke.

Also, several of Trump’s staff members resigned, including his Chief of Staff John Kelly, after the riot took place.

Officers have also arrested a few of the rioters, including Richard Barnett, the man who was seen sitting at Speaker Pelosi’s desk. He was charged with entering and remaining on restricting grounds, violent entry, and theft of public property, MSNBC reports.

Most recently, Twitter has banned Trump’s account permanently. Twitter stated, “After close review of recent Tweets From the @realjdonaldtrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to risk of further incitement of violence.
