At 2:12 p.m. on Jan. 6, supporters of President Trump began climbing through a window they had smashed on the northwest side of the U.S. Capitol. “Go! Go! Go!” someone shouted as the rioters, some in military gear, streamed in. It was the start of the most serious attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812. The mob coursed through the building, enraged that Congress was preparing to make Trump’s electoral defeat official. “Drag them out! … Hang them out!” rioters yelled at one point, as they gathered near the House chamber.
Officials in the House and Senate secured the doors of their respective chambers, but lawmakers were soon forced to retreat to undisclosed locations. Five people died on the grounds that day, including a Capitol police officer. In all, more than 50 officers were injured.
To reconstruct the pandemonium inside the Capitol, The Washington Post examined text messages, photos and hundreds of videos, some of which were exclusively obtained. By synchronizing the footage and locating some of the camera angles within a digital 3-D model of the building, The Post was able to map the rioters’ movements and assess how close they came to lawmakers - in some cases feet apart or separated only by a handful of vastly outnumbered police officers.

Further proof that there was coordination with the organizers of the demonstration. How did they know that Trump was going to turn the crowd around to march and when to begin their assault?

Within days of this event, the National Guard from all 50 States arrived in D.C.. Why? Only Trump could have called them, did he meet with the commanders of the Guard Units? We are still in a State of War remember, for as long as it takes to fight terrorism. USS Lindsey Graham on his youtube page has a 32 or so min. clip of him questioning Nominee Kavanaugh. Start at about 24 mins in where Sen. asks about the Law of Armed Conflicts. It ends when the Senator says about traitors "You know we executed them" . The DOD Law of War is available on line it makes interesting reading.

It was sheer luck many from both sides did not die, because if capital police shot many trump terrorist they would call them selves victims of the idiotic and so called revolution. I knew some thing like this was going happen 1\2 way thru trump's presidency some thing like this was going to happen.

Thanks for posting this insight to the events of that day, here in the United Kingdom we only got to see the sanitised version, but this is so incite-full that it’s clear that this mob of morons only wanted to cause fear and destroy whatever they could. 😡😢😞👍🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 How the police officers etc didn’t use more deadly force on this mob is not only unbelievable but also highly commendable, one death is tragic and five is truly saddening, but it could have been a bloodbath, when someone shouted repeatedly “he’s got a gun” it was as though they were surprised, how I don’t know, all law enforcement officers carry guns, so they couldn’t have been surprised, doesn’t make sense.

I am not a big supporter of the Democrats. But WTF goes wrong with those republican voters these days? There is no rational explaination forcing the decision to give his/hers cross to them. And this I am asking myself not just since Trump was candidating. These people have big mental problems. Greetings from Germany!

I have now watched this three times, and still I am in shock that this is how emboldened these homegrown terrorists have become. This needs to be squashed now. Yes please put a 911 commission on them. I believe these people are the largest threat our country will ever see. Get them under control before something really terrible happens.

I'd like to see all those arrested and convicted of a crime for their activities on 1/ 6/2021, including the planners behind the scenes, sentenced to a long time in a dormitory prison cell with several hundred men who haven't had intimate relations with a woman for many years. Video and audio recordings should be made and the results preserved for posterity and stored at the Library of Congress. After that, on each anniversary of the Trump Republican assault on the Capitol and members of Congress, (as well as their own Vice President) the tapes should be played on television for all to see, just as when the 911 videos were played for several years after that despicable occasion. We should never forget what happened on Jan. 6th, and then dumb bastards who were responsible for it.

D Trump and all his family screwed his supporting rioters (and the ones that died) at the capitol hill raid by denying he incited anything to them, yet it was clear they where acting under his words. -- Once his reputation is in danger, he will drop you so quick, you wont see it coming -- -- Trump supporters are IDIOTS who dont do enough research about him, he's just another Walter mitty --

Trump... *"WE'RE"* going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue... Then, *"WE'RE"* going to walk up to the Capitol and be "bold!" The Trump part of *"WE"* got immediately in his bullet proof limo and rode to his "safe space," so to watch the riot on tv... where he watched and did *"NOTHING"* for "several hours!" He should have immediately gone to the Capitol and told his worshipers to immediately retreat! He did not. *Trump has American blood is on his hands!*

Make your voices heard, peacefully. Did you forget that part? The "peril" that law-makers faced???? The citizens were the constituents of the politicians in session, why would you presume the politicians were in peril? Manipulative editors gave no backstory of the voters request to a bipartisan Congressional review of the Nov2020 election after hundreds of citizen poll watchers witnessed possible mismanagement in several voting districts (not all, some). As well, that the election system was similar to what the Philippines were banning due to election fraud. The review would have left plenty of time for the tradition of peaceful inauguration. You should have added that the DNC denied the courtesy to the People and refused to hold the much needed election review, you also neglected to specify the inciteful actions of the DNC & Rinos that immediately started after their rude denial, no mentioning of the DNC & Rinos severely insulting the concerned voters on global television, newsprint & social media. The DNC & Rinos also savagely insulted the few RNC politicians that followed PROPER protocol in requesting the bipartisan review to help The People. You don't mention the concerned voters were censored to silence when the voters tried to give voice and plead for the Congressional review, through the media. The DNC & Rinos should have been disciplined for their egregious actions leading up to Jan2021 against The People and still owe apologies to the citizenry. The citizens were ignored to silence. The People went to knock on the Capitol door to talk with their ignorant representatives. Their representatives again ignored them and hid as if victims. The politicians were the perpetrators, the public do not have to take abuse from politicians or media. The People and the RNC have been injured from destructive over-reach of power by the DNC members in government. Who listens, who reports, who helps The People when the mainstream media are blinded and gagged by currency and power?
