Lawmakers have return to the Capitol to continue the counting of Electoral College votes, hours after a mob of angry rioters overran the building and sent members of Congress fleeing in the most brazen assault on the pillars of American democracy in modern history.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed to resume the interrupted proceedings Wednesday evening. Senators returned to the Capitol under heavy guard, carrying with them the certificates of electoral votes that were rescued from rioters who broke into the chamber earlier in the day.

  1. I am a big Trump supporter and I do I think the election was stolen. However I condemn in the strongest terms what happened today in Washington. Mob rule never wins the battle. Because of what happened today I decided to watch the senate debates. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. Almost every republican senator, those that supported the president and those that didn’t condemned the violence and almost everyone seemed to want to somehow work together with the democrats for the good of the country. However most of the democrats sounded like a bunch of hypocrites. On the one hand they condemned today’s violence but no mention of the 8 month Antifa and BLM riots against the court house in Portland and the injuring, maiming and destroying that was supported by many Democrats. They mention all the “lies” Trump said and all the “conspiracy theories” he pushes, yet in the same breath they bring up the Russian collusion and the Ukrainian phone call. One senator in a diatribe mentioned the phone call the president made to the secretary of Georgia He said the president was a mafia thug. A few mentioned how a contested election created the Jim Crow laws which disenfranchised blacks, but there was no mention of how Trump supporters felt disenfranchised by how the elections were run this year in many states only to the advantage of democrats. They say they want to represent all Americans but these same senators are bending over backwards for every leftist ideal which includes to cancel anyone who doesn’t agree with them. This kind of talk is not bringing the country together. I and 74 million other Americans voted for Trump. If you want us to support you show that you care about ALL Americans.
