What happened at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021

Supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday.

The protesters gathered in Washington, DC in support of Trump and his fraudulent claims of voting fraud as the U.S. Congress voted to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

The mob trashed Congressional offices, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., broke windows and entered both the Senate and House chambers.

A “non-scalable” fence more than two meters high (seven feet) is being put up around the Capitol for at least 30 days.
