Thousands of Trump supporters have breached the Capitol while both houses of Congress were in session to count the Electoral College votes. The “debate,” as phony as it was, has apparently been suspended. Legislators are in lockdown in their offices while Trumpers roam the halls at will. Are they planting bombs inside? The President of the United States is spending the day tweeting attacks at Vice President Trump for refusing to stop the counting of electors and simply declaring Trump re-elected. He has apparently done nothing to restore order among his supporters.
Several things are clear. One is that the Capitol Police were unprepared for this situation. The President is actively encouraging this attack on American democracy. The Mayor of the District of Columbia has declared a 6 pm curfew, more than three hours from now. Meanwhile, the assault on the Capitol continues unabated. Protesters are in the Rotunda
This is the treasonous work of Donald Trump. It will not be forgotten.
