On January 6th, thousands of supporters of Donald Trump stormed past metal barricades to enter the Capitol and protest against Joe Biden’s victory. Many videos emerged on social media, showcasing several protesters near the Capitol Building. As the crowd was anticipated, evacuation of the Library of Congress James Madison Memorial Building and the Cannon House Office Building was ordered. Many responded violently to cops’ efforts to stop them from entering the building.
