Capitol Hill: This is what exactly happened on January 6

January 6 2020, was the day when the Capitol hill violence occurred, it was a Wednesday, and this might have happened on that day. A joint session of Congress was set to verify and certify that Joe Biden has won the electoral election. At the same time, thousands of Trump supporters had gathered near the White House to listen to his speech. After listening, tensions were high on Capitol hill as thousands of protesters had gathered and swarmed lawmakers outside. Sen. Todd Young was exasperated as the protesters surrounded him on the Russell Senate Office Building steps around 11.30 am.

Trump has been accused of provoking the crowd by saying, "We will never give up. we will never concede." He had also called Vice President Mike Pence to reject Biden's win and send the votes back to the states. He had said that "Mike Pence, I hope you are going to stand up for the good of our Constitution and the good of our country. And if you are not, I will be very disappointed in you."

And this led to a storm of Trump supporters marching toward the Capitol. When counting votes started, many rioters took the law into their hands and damaged the historical building. The Senates and all members present were hiding in bunkers. These riots led to the death of five people and damage to the senate-house.
