Demonstrators have swarmed the U.S. Capitol, Congress was forced to abruptly halt deliberations Wednesday over Republican challenges to Joe Biden’s presidential victory.

Shortly after 1 p.m. ET hundreds of pro-Trump protesters pushed through barriers set up along the perimeter of the Capitol, where they tussled with officers in full riot gear, some calling the officers “traitors” for doing their jobs.
Former President George W Bush has issued a statement on the “scenes of mayhem” unfolding in the US Capitol.

“It is a sickening and heartbreaking sight,” the Republican wrote.

“This is how election results are disputed in a banana republic – not our democratic republic.”

Bush continued, saying that he was “appalled by the reckless behaviour of some political leaders” since the presidential election, but stopped short of calling out President Trump or his supporters by name.

At least 13 individuals have been arrested during the riots on Capitol Hill.

Washington DC Metropolitan Police said five guns, including handguns and long guns, have also been seized.

Police Chief Robert Contee told reporters all of the arrests involved people who do not live in the DC area.

He also said some officers are being treated for injuries.

They’re in the chamber. One is up on the dais yelling “Trump won that election!” This is insane
