US President Donald Trump’s attempts to reverse the results of the 2020 election reached alarming conditions on Wednesday. A crowd of his supporters stormed the US Capitol Building after a rally. At this rally, Trump once again claimed rigged elections.
Views of such instability have rarely been seen in US history. Curfew was imposed in Washington on Wednesday afternoon due to crowd disturbances. Hundreds of people marched to the barricades with the intention of stopping the counting of the Electoral College. After this, they also clashed with police officers.
Noise crowds reached the second floor of the Senate Chamber
Noisy protestors entered the second-floor lobby just outside the Senate Chamber. During this time, the Law Information Officers found themselves in front of the door of the Chamber. A woman was shot inside the Capitol building. He was declared dead in the hospital. At the same time, police said that three more people died in the Capitol Ground.
Outside the capitol building
Police had barricaded the main gate of the house chamber. The officers deployed for its security laid down their arms as there was a huge crowd outside the gate.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office also vandalized
Later in the afternoon, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office near the House Chamber was also vandalized. A man was seen sitting on his chair with his feet on the office table. The crowd was present at the Capitol Ground for several hours. The police later removed them.
At around eight o’clock in the night, the Congress meeting again started for the Electoral College Result. DC and Virginia’s National Guard were called in to prevent Trump supporters from entering the Capitol Building again.
