This is an updated thread by CNN.

It seems the true anarchists are the tRump supporters. Seems they came prepared to take action. They should all be arrested and tried for sedition!

Tyranny will come with a Bible and a gun in one hand and a flag in the other.


Listening to elected politicians spout conspiracy theories and call for overturning of a democratic election is disgusting and I hope there is recourse for their actions.

and US Congress recessed before certifying the Electoral College votes because protesters breached security and were in the building.

Some reporters are saying the protestors are trying to break down a door to one of the house chambers.

Posted in the other thread, but Speaker requested national guard troops, and the request is being granted. (Source: Washington Post live stream)
I haven’t heard it’s been granted but I did hear that it’s being worked up the chain.

Just heard a SCIF has been breached. Any doubt that foreign intel actors would be embedded in this crowd of traitors???

If the SCIFs I’ve been in have been any indication, just getting inside is totally pointless. Safes and computer systems are locked down better than the doors.

Capital police are so obviously complicit in this. There needs to be an investigation into why they so obviously ALLOWED this to happen.

The Capital Police, being under the control of Congress, are probably less well equipped to handle stuff compared with the police forces of the executive branch.

And if the ones I've been in are an indication, I'm surprised they managed it. It takes some fairly serious hardware to get through the doors or walls.
