DEVELOPING

Pro-Trump protesters have swarmed the grounds and buildings of Capitol Hill on Wednesday afternoon following President Donald Trump‘s rally in front of the White House and Vice President Mike Pence‘s refusal to overturn President-elect Joe Biden‘s 2020 victory at the day’s scheduled tallying of Electoral Colleges votes casts by the states.

Congressional offices have been told to evacuate and to head down to the underground tunnels in order to escape the ensuing chaos, Jake Sherman of Punchbowl News reported.

Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) said she had evacuated her office and reported that the rioters were assaulting Capitol Police, including a video in her tweet of a clash between them in a congressional building.

The Capitol Police couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. The story will be updated if and when one is received.
