The US Capitol descended into total chaos as attendees at the March to Save America clashed with police.
Crowds stormed the security fences outside Congress where lawmakers were convening to vote on the certification of the Electoral College of the 2020 presidential election. The Library of Congress has been evacuated amid violent clashes.
Trump supporters were outside by the thousands and they were listening to what was going on inside, and they didn’t like what they were hearing. They were listening as Republican House members were reciting the evidence of election fraud. For example, we watched as an Arizona congressman was saying that the Arizona Secretary of State changed the election law deadline for voter registration by adding ten days. This is documented, it’s not hearsay. Newspapers reported on it. And then after reporting all the election fraud that has been legitimately documented, we heard Democrats reply by saying there is no evidence of election fraud and that the Republicans who were arguing against certifying the election were harming democracy. And that repeated for every Republican member of Congress who reported election fraud from the various battleground states, only to have a Democrat practically laugh at them and claim there’s no evidence of election fraud.
Well, what did these Democrats think was going to happen when the protesters were listening to this outside the building? It’s unbearable to listen to crap like this from people who know their party cheated.
So, they stormed the building to let the Democrats know they will not take it anymore. For four years they have watched our president be attacked for things he didn’t do. We watched Democrats as they ran out of the chamber like a bunch of frightened little girls.
Message to people inside the Capitol: “Lock all doors if able. If unable, seek shelter or concealment. Remain calm and await further directions. I repeat… security threats security threats security threats inside the US Capitol”

United States Capitol Police saved my life.
Attacks on law enforcement officers trying to do their jobs are never acceptable. Period.
We can passionately protest without being violent.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted about Trump supporters breaking into the Capitol building fighting their way to the chamber.
“This is wrong and not who we are. Be peaceful and use your 1st Amendment rights, but don’t start acting like the other side. We have a country to save and this doesn’t help anyone.”

Congressional members in the House chamber were told by police to put on gas masks that were under their seats because they were going to use pepper spray and/or tear gas in the Capitol rotunda.
Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser set a citywide curfew that begins at 6 pm Wednesday until 6 am Thursday. We’ll see if the protesters follow it. We’ll also see a contrast of how they handle Trump protesters vs how they did absolutely nothing to control the ANTIFA and BLM rioters.
The curfew follows clashes between Trump supporters and police outside Congress that forced the Capitol building to go into lockdown mode.
The protesters stormed the building while Congress met to confirm the Electoral College votes. Unlike rioters we watched destroy the nation all summer long, these protesters were not destroying property or trying to harm anyone. They just wanted members of Congress to know that they know their party cheated and they won’t stand for it anymore.
An incident was reported where a female protester was looking through a window and was shot by police. I saw a video that Will Johnson aired watching a man’s phone who took a video and photos. The woman was on the ground and there was blood everywhere. We didn’t see the actual shooting, but only a gun or a large knife would cause that kind of blood.
Multiple reports across social media showed protesters breaching the Capitol from multiple entrances.
It’s been reported that protesters went face-to-face with a line of riot cops who are working to prevent further access to the western front of the Capitol.
Video posted online shows demonstrators clashing with authorities on the steps of Congress.

PM Police started to organize in front of the Capitol building.
The session of Congress was canceled for the day. Who knows if they’ll try again tomorrow, but for now, the protesters can say mission accomplished as they stopped the Democrats from legitimizing a stolen election.
Stories started circulating that a group of ANTIFA operatives dressed like Trump supporters are the ones who started fighting with cops. From that point on, everything went nuts.
BREAKING: Former FBI agent on the ground at U.S. Capitol just texted me and confirmed that at least 1 "bus load" of Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Trump demonstrators as part of a false Trump flag ops
