Four people were killed, including one woman inside the building itself as pro Trump protestors gained access to the US capital building in Washington DC Wednesday afternoon.  The group stormed the building, taking over offices and looting items, while lawmakers were either evacuated or ordered to shelter in place.  The protestors were while lawmakers were doing the work of certifying the 2020 presidential election victory of Joe Biden.  Some Republican lawmakers had planned to object to certification in what would amount in a feudal attempt to try and overturn the results of the election.  As law enforcement worked to remove the rioters from the capital, lawmakers were able to reconvene and certify the election results, many Republicans dropping their objection to certification following the incident which shocked American’s across the country.   The US capital has not been overrun like this, since the British did so in 1814 during the war of 1812.  President Trump had his twitter account locked  after he  tweeted a video calling on people to go home, but also praising them and continuing the lie the election was stolen from him.  President Elect Joe Biden called this act a form of insurrection.
