It’s been a chaotic day in Washington, D.C. as members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate gathered to certify the U.S. Presidential Election. But that process was interrupted, when Trump supporters stormed the steps of the capitol building. The capitol was put on lock-down, as police attempted to secure the building and move lawmakers to safety. Earlier, President Trump addressed the crowds, repeating claims of a stolen election.
