Trump supporters storm Capitol Building grounds as fateful vote looms


Hundreds of supporters of President Trump breached the perimeter of the US Capitol on Wednesday, attempting to force their way into the building as Congress prepared to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s election win.

Washington Post reporter Rebecca Tan tweeted an 11-second video clip of the throngs streaming toward the building, with some stomping over a flimsy fence marked with an “Area Closed” sign.

“Hundreds of Trump supporters have stormed the barricades at the back of the Capitol and are marching toward the building,” wrote Tan.

Other journalists on the ground also tweeted footage of the wild scene.
