WASHINGTON, D.C. (WRIC) — Rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol and entered the chamber floor Wednesday. The building went into lockdown mode and lawmakers were asked to wear gas masks or leave their offices.
The breach of the building occurred as Congress was debating the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over President Donald Trump.
