Violence Erupts in US Capitol as Pro-Trump Protesters Clash With Police

Trump supporters clashed with police and broke into the US Capitol building in Washington, DC, on January 6, as Congress was set to vote to affirm Joe Biden’s win in the Electoral College.

United States Capitol Police locked down the entire complex after protesters breached its confines and confronted law enforcement inside.
