US Capitol Locked Down After Pro-Trump Protesters Storm Building by 99thEnemy(m): 8:36pm On Jan 06
The U.S. Capitol is locked down after pro-Trump protesters charged the steps on Wednesday as Congress began counting the Electoral College votes.

Around 2 p.m., Capitol police sent out an alert:

All buildings within the Capitol Complex,Capitol: Due to an external security threat located on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol Building, no entry or exit is permitted at this time. You may move throughout the building(s) but stay away from exterior windows and doors. If you are outside, seek cover.

Both chambers abrubtly went into recess amid the chaos.

The surge occurred after thousands poured into the nation’s capital to support President Donald Trump, and to protest the results of the 2020 election, which Joe Biden won.

The skirmishes occurred outside in the very spot where president-elect Biden will be inaugurated in just two weeks.

Protesters tore down metal barricades at the bottom of the Capitol's steps and were met by officers in riot gear. Some tried to push past the officers who held shields and officers could be seen firing pepper spray into the crowd to keep them back. Some in the crowd were shouting "traitors" as officers tried to keep them back.






So far the Washington Mayor has issued a 6PM curfew and the Capitol police are asking for more security

Hahaha,I never knew that America has zombies as citizens ,I thought it was only here ,but now trump supporters have yet again prove me wrong ....that trump guy is the true but white copy of black dictators with dumb supporters ...chai ,When trump entered the race someone in the republican party said that if trump is nominated it will hurt our party ,I thought he was just envious of the flamboyant big trump but now am sure he was very right ,just that he was partisan cos trump is destroying the respect and goodwill of the federation of American people especially the office of the president...Is just very sad to most of us that admire their country and democracy..

Trump has once again proved how dumb he's by allowing his supporters to show-case the zombie-ism in them.
Not only has he successfully over-thrown the average Nigerian president in terms of corruption but has also shown the rest of the world how he had successfully led the U.S towards backwardness.

Remember black lives matter and antifa, how they burn down cities and loot businesses

This is just a pay back in the legal way.

Na so we see am. Trump is only playing his "trump card" but it's too late. I am also following. The shocking statement by Mike Pence today, after the intense pressures mounted on him by Trump for days, that he doesn't have any power to block certification of Joe Biden's election victory was clear proof the majority Republicans never liked Trump's style of government from inception. They were just playing along from 2016. The then speaker never liked his candidature but later kept mum. Na so dem allow this man destroy the fiture of GOP parapata. Chaeee!

Trump the sore loser and his cult supporters are out of their minds. Nothing is going to change the result of the election. Trump lost and Biden will be president on 20th January, 2021.
