Capitol police appeared to let a mass of Trump demonstrators right into the Capitol building at one entry point Wednesday after the crowd breached the perimeter surrounding the complex.
“I disagree with it but I respect what you’re trying to do,” one officer can be heard in the video.

Brief skirmishes at other points of entry bought little time for people inside to prepare for the coming siege. Once police lines broke, security became overwhelmed at the size of the mob breaking through, with some of the rioters armed with a form of pepper spray. Clashes occurred at various entrances.

After breaching the Capitol complex, rioters smashed doors, shattered windows, ravaged offices, and breached both legislative chambers, interrupting congressional business and prompting members to hide or evacuate, culminating in some of the most devastating security failures since the War of 1812. Top officials charged with protecting the nation’s seat of government resigned in the aftermath, following top lawmakers’ demands to step down.
They needed to let them in for the desired effect. Though Trump never told anyone to use force, storm the Capital or use violence, he is, of course, blamed. Unlike the numerous Democrats who have called for protests, intimidation and violence, who were NOT held accountable, Trump will be persecuted for it.
Of course, the gurgling drunk Pelosi wants to impeach Trump. And, of course, with only 12 days left, they don’t have time to pretend they have reason and cause, it is, as before, nothing but a matter of having the power to do it. She and those who support her are the worst form of infection this nation has.
I see a few that are infiltrators or assholes of the highest order, and should be prosecuted, dude with bear spray needs jail time for assault.
Trump said tgat all shoujd be prosecuted to the full extent of the law
Of course that was after the white hiuse counsel told him trump himself could be prosecuted for inciting a riot
Gonna censor this too curt !!
@Kurt: Hopefully you aren’t cut off before you provide your evidence Trump incited a riot. Hurry.
@Kurt: If the President can be censored who the F do you think you are not be be? Shouldnt you be on Twatter celebrating Jack hole?

@kitt: People like Kurt are not capable of thinking that far ahead. They’ve been taught the revisionist history of socialism and totalitarianism. It’s all fun and games as long as it is aimed at people THEY don’t like. But wait until the realization hits them that the despots they put in office no longer need to pander them for their votes. Though we’ll all be in the same boat, I will take much pleasure pointing this out to them.
