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.

ja ja ja solo una pregunta porque los policias del capitolio no dispararon contra los alborotadores ? las policias en estados unidos estan acostumbradas a disparar ,los videos que aqui pasaron muestran lo que parece una policia europea,de alemania o belgica que no disparan ni en defensa propia,pero en cualquier otro incidente con policias estadounidenses ,surge de inmediato el procedimiento de primero disparar y luego investigar,esto fue un vil montaje , Bienvenidos a el tercer manadato de Barack Obama

No antifa was not there, at all. Antifa stands for "anti-fascist". Why would they march side by side with fascists (which were confirmed to be there)?

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.

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 --
