BREAKING: D.C. Enacts Lockdowns After Trump Supporters Storm Capitol, Force Evacuations


Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser announced on Wednesday afternoon that she was instituting a citywide curfew for the entire city at 6:00 in response to Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol building, which forced an evacuation while forcing others to shelter in place. There also appears to be an armed standoff inside one of the chambers.

Newly-elected Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) tweeted out a video of one of the incidents that unfolded in the nation’s capital following a rally that President Donald Trump held.

“Just evacuated my office in Cannon due to a nearby threat. Now we’re seeing protesters assaulting Capitol Police,” Mace wrote. “This is wrong. This is not who we are. I’m heartbroken for our nation today.”
