Thousands of supporters of President Trump have stormed the US Capitol building, venting their anger at the victory of Joe Biden in the presidential election.
They forced the evacuation and lockdown of Congress, where lawmakers were preparing to approve the election result.
Shortly before the clashes President Trump had addressed his supporters near the White House telling them that he would never accept defeat.
President-elect Biden called on Mr Trump to tell his people to go home and eventually that was the message delivered from the White House.
Washington’s Mayor ordered a curfew as members of the US National Guard were deployed to protect the city.
Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by North America editor Jon Sopel in Washington and from Aleem Maqbool and Lebo Diseko at the Capitol.

  • So what did we get to witness on January 6, 2021? We got to witness a neo-Confederate coup. We got to see neo-fascist Trump supporters who don't give a damn about democracy - in fact, who'd be happy to see democracy abolished for the sake of preserving Trump in power, assault the oldest democracy in the world (America is the only country in the world with a continuous democracy of more than 200 years). Now, just for the record, while I am politically left... I'm also a liberal. I was accused of being a right winger for daring to criticise Antifa and calling them out for being the violent, neo-communist scum that they are. I was born in the USSR, I know that sort of people, and they are scum. However, while the media is happy to blow the threat and significance of Antifa out of proportion... far-right neo-Confederate terrorists get a free pass. We saw this fascist scum in Charlottesville, waving their Confederate and Nazi flags; we saw them walking around with guns in Washington during the election in order to intimidate people; we saw their great-grandfathers lynch black people in the 1920s; we saw their grandparents throwing things at black students when segregation at schools was being abolished in the 1950s. We know exactly who we're dealing with! And yet, for some reason, while troops were put on standby during BLM protests - protests that were mostly peaceful, and where black and white people were joined in opposing systematic racism and police brutality - no precautions were taken against Trump-supporting armed far-righters who have always been open about their willingness to go all the way to preserve Trump in power. Honestly, black kids gets harassed by the police for driving... because officers assume a black person in a car means the car is stolen, while armed neo-Confederate trash gets to walk around the capital with guns on election night and storm the Congress. You wanted proof of systematic racism? Here it is! Trump knew perfectly well what he was unleashing.

  • They can't impeach him it's against the law to impeach a citizen by the senate for your info of not watching. this has nothing to do with trump it's the people and there country! People need to know that congress is above the law, it's unable to prosecute even treason anybody in congress, they just committed 6 federal felonies against the constitution 10 republicans and the entire left side. There is no term limits in congress and America has no justice and is under complete tyranny, the constitution needs to be enforce and acted with the instructions left by our founding fathers when the people are under tyranny there is no other way to save your country is under an attack! China is supporting the steal and Biden it will be all over if Americans allow any of this! Follow your constitution all the instructions are there! This country is under tyranny without justice weather people accept it or not! Until this justice is served for our elections and the attack on the constitution! America is at War! The constitution has instructions for America under tyranny any soldier or American patriot should know these instructions other than this it's treason what congress has done!. Your protecting stolen democracy not the constitution instructions left by our founding fathers a total disgrace to there people and the country!!

  • EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED. There was no plan! There was no attack! This is what happened: * In the days before 1/6, virtually all law enforcement was pulled from the Capitol * On 1/6, Donald Trump gave a speech which probably wasn’t legally incitement (though he will probably be convicted of it anyway) that implied people should go to the Capitol, and maybe get a little bit rowdy * People went to the Capitol, and got a bit rowdy * The cops pulled back, and actually, literally opened the doors of the Capitol building and let people walk in * People walked in and mulled around a little bit, mostly taking selfies * Some of them were yelling * Some guy violated a podium * Some guy sat at Nancy Pelosi’s desk and took selfies * People just kind of filed out of the building, in an orderly way Things that did not happen: * An attack * Any kind of plan at all The purposes of lying about this are legion: * There is a massive shut down of free speech on the internet (including closing and seizing bank accounts) * There is a lunatic new military police state is being brought in * Donald Trump is being impeached again * All supporters of Donald Trump are being framed as terrorists * There is a plan to create new legal classifications for fake “fake news” and “domestic terrorism” in order to completely shut down the First Amendment * To try to clamp down on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies (USE MONERO) * Create a mandate for Joe Biden to “unify the country in the wake of unprecedented violence against our democracy” (Biden previously had no mandate beyond “I’m a nice person and Donald Trump is a mean person”) * Destroy any future for a post-Trump MAGA platform by associating it with violence and terrorism * And apparently, based on the above article, to link MAGA to Russia, Iran and China * etc. This is ALL OBVIOUS.

  • Trump gets 1 million per year travel expense, 200,000 per year pension, and Secret Service protection for life, after leaving office. If he is convicted in the Senate he would lose all of those perks. as well as the ability to serve in Federal office. It is safe to assume that if he has the perks he would travel the country having rallies, which the folks that stormed the Capitol would be free to attend and get up to speed on new ideas. Based on the evidence I have seen, I think he should be convicted for what he has already done. I also do not want taxpayer money paying for him to travel around and incite more violence, which is another reason for conviction. Last, I think that there are fine people in both parties, Trump belongs in neither party and should be banned from running, which is another reason for conviction. 56 people who signed the Declaration of Independence were willing to risk their lives and take on one of the most powerful countries on Earth. They did not take polls to tell them what they knew to be the right thing for the country. I hope that we have enough Senators willing to do the right thing, no matter which way the wind is blowing for the "base" at the time of the vote for conviction. Thank you to the poll workers that risked their lives to tell the truth, and thank you in advance for those that read this and contact their Senators to let them know it is time to end the Trump experiment.

  • If this had been an Antifa or BLM mob, the Democrats would have applauded them for their "direct action" protesting, like the time when Antifa and BLM damaged CNN's property, burned cars out, looted businesses, blocked highways and formed their "autonomous zone", and the Democrats and media applauded them for it. The double standards in politics and media coverage is bizarre.

  • True American patriots engaging in peaceful protest is all this was based on the Democrat definitions used in the media last year with BLM and ANTIFA. Democrats incited mass riots for months during the pandemic with BLM and ANTIFA terrorists which caused billions in damages and dozens of deaths, and as dozens of buildings were burnt to the ground and thousands of lives were ruined, the Democrats and the mainstream media kept on calling them "mostly peaceful protests" while Democrat leaders defended the riots and the media ignored the damage done to cater to their Leftist agenda. They brainwashed the masses to rig an election and Big Tech helped them out. Now they want to shift all blame to Trump and cancel the Right for one small riot which he did not incite in the slightest and was nothing compared to the hundreds of riots caused by Democrats during the pandemic last year? What a joke. Fake News verified. Democrats are a disgrace. Ignorance and hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds. MAGA isn't going anywhere.
