Americans’ pent-up anger over the presidential election erupted in full fury Wednesday as protesters took to the streets of Washington, D.C., in protests that surged and seethed through the centers of power.
At one point, protesters entered the Capitol building complex, where inside legislators were fencing over the results of the Electoral College vote that hands the presidency to Democrat Joe Biden, with a core band of Republicans objecting to certifying the results of the vote in a parliamentary last stand.
Videos of the scene showed a powerful, angry tide sweeping aside police trying to contain protesters.
