A massive crowd of protestors supporting President Donald Trump violently clashed with law enforcement Wednesday (Jan. 6) storming the U.S. Capitol and sending the building into lockdown.
These and other scenes from the Capitol shocked the world as violent protesters loyal to President Trump stormed the nation’s halls of power in a brazen attempt to undercut democracy and keep Democrat Joe Biden from replacing Trump in two weeks.
