Unprecedented - and deadly - scenes at the Capitol in Washington DC - where supporters of President Trump stormed the building in a bid to overturn the election results.
One woman was shot and later died of her injuries, as rioters attempted to stop Congress members from certifying Joe Biden's election victory.
Chaos unraveled on Capitol Hill as the building was stormed by hundreds of Trump supporters.
A battle ensued between riot police and the protesters as they broke past security.
They stormed the Senate chambers to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden's election victory - literally bringing democracy to a halt.
Police then drew their guns. A woman was shot by police officers - and was later proclaimed dead.
Some protesters also turned their anger against the media.
Earlier at a rally near the White House, President Trump had repeated his unsubstantiated claims that the election had been stolen from him - and urged his supporters to rally at the Capitol.
Hours later Trump then released a recorded message telling his supporters to go home but failed to condemn their actions.
Trump has now been suspended from several social media accounts, including Twitter, after tweeting to supporters who attacked the Capitol.
When lawmakers finally got back into the Senate chambers, several senior republicans condemned then violence. Including Trump's vice president Mike Pence.
The violence was branded as a siege by President-elect Joe Biden, who warned of the threat to democracy.
The crowds dissipated once the 6pm curfew came into force, but National Guard troops remained alert for potential violence throughout the night.

  • Crazy how out of nowhere Trump supporters come with all this love and support for cops, and become bootlickers, a police officer can do no wrong with the back the blue guys, and then at the same time they beat cops down with the blue lives matter flags. I'm still trying to make sense of that incident.

  • If he is removed, so too should be Pelosi, Maxine Waters etc for actively, on tape calling for violence against Trump supporters. Trump didn't incite anything. He invited people to come to the capital and do what conservatives do. Stand outside and let themselves be seen and their voices heard. Looking back at all the protests, there's only 1 group that destroys property while protesting... Democrats and thier "mostly peaceful" arson, assault, vandalism, looting, murder.

  • Freunde der Sonne: Dass die "Demokraten" nicht vor systematischer Wahlfälschung zurückschrecken, das ist mittlerweile bekannt, dass sie derzeit von Angst getrieben zu sein scheinen, und deshalb alle abgetakelten Ehemaligen aus dem Keller ans Tageslicht holen, um sie vorgeschriebene Skripte, die so bescheuert sind, dass man wirklich Mitleid mit den Minderbemittelten haben kann, die dafür verantwortlich sind, vorlesen zu lassen, wird auch immer deutlicher, dass sie in ihrem Bemühen, Donald Trump zu diskreditieren, nicht einmal davor zurückschrecken, auf den Gräbern der Opfer des Nationalsozialismus herumzutrampeln und den Nationalsozialismus und mit ihm den Holocaust zu verharmlosen, das ist eine neue Entwicklung, eine Entwicklung, die der Tatsache geschuldet ist, dass ruchlose Linke vor nichts zurückschrecken, wenn es um den Griff nach dem, was sie für Macht halten, geht. Indes, die Absurditäten, die dabei herauskommen, zeigen nur, dass diese Leute nicht über die Intelligenz verfügen, um mit Argumenten und mit rationalem Diskurs zu überzeugen. Sie haben nur den Appell an Emotionen und mit diesem Appell erreichen sie nur diejenigen, die genauso dumm sind, wie sie selbst. 20/4

  • Unfortunately, the 25th amendment IS NOT the quickest way to remove Trump. If he contests it, the issue goes to Congress. The Republicans in the Senate have made statements indicating that they would delay a trial to remove Trump following an impeachment. The same would likely apply to a convening of the Senate to override Trump's contesting of the application of the 25th amendment. Legal temporary removal of Trump from office need not await the Senate under the 25th amendment or a removal post impeachment. The House has the jurisdiction to issue arrest warrants. The House can and has done so for contempt of Congress. Just as the police can arrest and detain, subject to judicial bail proceedings, when there is probable cause to believe that an offence has been committed or a charge has been laid, so too the House can issue a warrant for the arrest of Trump pending trial in the Senate once Trump has been impeached. The Chief Justice could release Trump on bail. However, I would argue that bail could and should be denied if he is, and he is, a danger to the Country.
