A video has emerged showing the moment Trump supporters stopped an alleged ANTIFA group member from breaking into Capitol Hill building.
The Capitol Building is the meeting place of the United States Congress and the seat of the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government.
Congress met on Wednesday to certify the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden.
The session was interrupted, however, by trump supporters and the House went on recess with members of Congress, including Vice President Mike Pence, being led to safety.
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.
About 90 minutes later, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Shortly after, the House floor was evacuated by police.
Following the whole riot, online users immediately started labelling Trump Supporters as ‘terrorists’.
Smoke grenades were used on the Senate side of the Capitol, as police worked to clear the building of rioters. Windows on the west side of the Senate were broken, and hundreds of officers amassed on the first floor of the building.
However, in a newly released video, a man believed to be an ANTIFA group member was stopped by Trump Supporters from breaking into Capitol Hill.
While attempting the break the glass, a Trump supporter overpowered the alleged ANTIFA member and the crowed behind could be heard shouting.
