The Capitol building witnessed a protest by the pro-Trump mob against Congress’ formal approval of Biden’s victory in the elections.
The movement started after Donald Trump's speech during his Save America rally in Ellipse, where he urged his supporters to “walk down to the Capitol” and stop "this egregious assault on our democracy.” Liz Cheney, Republican from Wyoming, told Fox News. "The president incited the mob. The president addressed the mob. He lit the flame."
Associated Press, BBC, and NPR reported the protest's situation through images and videos along with a rough timeline of the rioter's activities inside the Capitol.
The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) released a list of Persons of Interest who were part of the riot. It offered a $1,000 reward prize in seeking assistance for finding the people involved.
