LIVE: US Capitol on Lockdown After Mob of Trump Supporters Raid the Building

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The United States Senate and the House of Representatives are currently on lockdown in the Capital building after a mob of Trump supporters raided the building. 

In the video above the US Senate and House were attempting to certify the 2020 US Presidential Election. 

A number of Republicans opposed the election while the Democrats all wanted to certify. 

During the debate over Arizona a recess was called after a crowd of President Trump supporters who were outside of the building gained access inside.

The capital is currently still on lockdown.

Here you go boys, trumpanzees on the loose, they must have emptied every homeless shelter in D.C. to that many ungroomed beer guzzlers together.   Here's what Pfluger and Cruz wanted and are backing, so they can reap what the sowed.  Thanks teddy and august!

Since Trump encouraged the mob to march on the capital and fight, I believe he should be charged with high treason.  Another example of a person can be very intelligent, but people, as a whole, are extremely stupid.

Comment

Not really surprised this happened people are frustrated! I support the demonstrations, but not the violence. As far as this being Trump’s fault I think that’s a stretch. 

Comment

It is abundantly clear the country has a new political party called MIFT (Mindless Idiots For Trump).  This applies to anyone who considers the November election to have been stolen, since this factless fantasy was born in the alleged mind of the vile, soulless creature currently contaminating the Oval Office.

His followers are at best fools, and at worst... see what happened in Washington.

Comment

Those who refuse to admit that voting irregularities occurred are worse than fools they’re ignorant. As for protests...I don’t condone violence, either what we saw today or what we’ve seen for months with BLM. Really to me it’s no different. Both groups have legitimate reasons for protesting, and both have been hijacked by radical factions within the group.

Comment

Ya’ll are correct, except they werent Trump people. They were BLM and Antifa dressed like Patriots. Pics of the same people at a BLM-Antifa rally in June

Comment

Very, very wrong, and evidence of deficient intellect.  These morons were Trumpo-Nazis.

...National Socialist German Workers party, (Nazi),....Socialist being the operative part; I think the people here, misguided though their actions were, are NOT socialists, I think that's the wrong side of the aisle.

Using this same logic against you regarding the George Floyd protests.  "tHeY WeRe tRuMp sUpPoRtErS DrEsSeD As bLm aNd aNtIfA."

Now do you see how stupid this sounds? Conservatives have been vilifying these protests for months. When are you gonna do the same here?

Comment

I think that definitely happened...although I don’t think that excuses everyone involved.

Also don’t listen to ex pat it’s going to be a rough 4 years not having Trump to kick around anymore ;)

How do you say this in confidence when metro police are videoed opening the barricades, opening the doors to the capitol and then Donald Jr blasting a 3 minute video of them partying and encouraging the entire process with Trump himself in the video none the less. 5 people died. Trump TOLD his supporters they need to walk to the Capitol and take back "what's theirs". He said something big would happen on the 6th and to just wait...

He planned this and should be arrested for it. It's disgusting no matter what side you are on

My personal thoughts on this run with Blanco9, people are frustrated by lockdowns that only apply to certain people, voting systems that are apparently very easily rigged, our "leaders" on all sides talking to each other the way they do, the obvious disparity in the way the press treat different political sides etc.

It is strange that this is considered a riot and sedition/treason, but those making this statement are the same people who supported the real riots, as in setting things alight, violence and murder, stealing and looting that occurred all through last summer and well into the fall; they did not yell treason or sedition at the top of their lungs when people set up "autonomous zones" throughout the country.  Far from condemning it, some of our "leaders" supported it vocally and financially, they vocally supported "defund the police", paid fines for those arrested, wanted everyone to have the right to vote, citizen or not, felon or not, they were adamant that there would be no vaccine and if it did come it would be no good and Trump was cooking it up in a back room. 

But, when the vaccine came, they were first in line to take it because they are "important", when things go wrong they insist the police are right there to defend them, not necessarily the rest of us.   These are the same people who chased the president for 3 years with impeachment,  apparently knowingly based on a false dossier, yet will not chase Hunter Biden or the "big guy" for detailed documents completed by Hunter himself.  They are the ones who allowed voting to be carried out by inmates, non-citizens and would not purge the voter roles before the election, meaning dead people vote as well.

Those in power, on both sides of the aisle,  have created this "them and us" culture, they have created this division in the country and they continue to do so through fear and hatred.  They promise everything and deliver nothing, except to themselves,  and in my opinion, they will take all opportunites that present themselves in the current climate to empower, enrich and enable themselves, while they remove rights and money from the rest of us.   I hope we all wake up soon and realize this country is worth more than the politicians, the people of this country DESERVE more than these type of people to represent them and they deserve TRUTH, honesty and decisions based on facts, not political propoganda and scoring political points with good twitter worthy "soundbites".

You need to have a coming to Jesus moment with yourself and you're own beliefs when it comes to humanity if you want even bring up the summer.

Ted Curz needs to resign and be disbarred, he helped create this terrorist coup attempt. The GOP needs to be dealt with like any other organized crime ring, it needs to be broken up and the RNC needs pay for all the damage to the capital.

Comment

“RNC needs to pay for all the damages to the capital”. I’ll agree...as long as you agree that the DNC needs to pay for all the damage as a result of the BLM demonstrations.

Tell you what I’ll go a step further than that just send me the bill. Replace a few windows repair a few doors it’s not like arson occurred or priceless statues were taken down and destroyed ;)

Comment

More lip service was given to the guy with his feet on Pelosi's desk than the dozens of police officers being attacked and trapped in a burning police precinct in MN, a few months back.

I guess Pelosi's flask collection matters more than the lives of innocent public servants.

BLM / ANTIFA wasn't there, right?  A known and previously arrested BLM/ANTIFA organizer filmed the Capitol Police shooting the unarmed female veteran INSIDE THE CAPITOL.

Oh, and I love the "mob" all walking peacefully inside the rails...  Mob indeed.
