Supporters Exchangedisagreeing with the victory Biden in the elections, broke into the building of the US Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, ostensibly to prevent confirmation of Biden’s victory. According to other sources, the police themselves let the protesters through: there is a video in which the police open the gates and let the crowd into the territory of the Capitol.
Everything looks very picturesque. Protesters were not prevented from entering the office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, take a picture of her sitting in a chair with her feet on the table and leave a note: “We will not retreat.”
Then the National Guard appeared on the scene, and a curfew was imposed in Washington.
“… The protests turned violent … They wanted to disrupt the Congress meeting on the adoption of the electoral commission votes. President Trump continues to incite hatred and violence, ”
– said the mayor of Washington Muriel Bowser…
Three people died in fights with the police near the Capitol, one of them is a woman, a 35-year-old veteran of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq Ashley Betbit… 52 demonstrators were detained, 47 of them for violating the curfew and five for possession and carrying of firearms without a license.
President Trump has reacted very ambiguously to events. He praised the law enforcement officers for their resilience and reminded the storming officers that their victory had been stolen. This, however, does not affect anything. The vote in Congress in favor of Biden went as if it were written, and the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg can now declare that he was “shocked” by the events in the United States, that is, to distract the public’s attention from the main thing, shifting attention to the secondary.
