How Trump Supporters Took the U.S. Capitol

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

They came from all 50 states out of some sense of patriotic duty to protest an election they believed was stolen. Their day of action was January 6th, 2021, a day when Congress would count electoral ballots and ratify the 2020 results. For some, it was just a rally for their president, but for others that attended it was a call to arms.

In the weeks leading up to the rally, there were over a million mentions of storming the Capital on social media. Maps were shared of the building’s layout, there was talk of bringing weapons and ammunition and discussion over which lawmakers should be targeted first.

This anger was all based on a lie.

A lie that had grown more frenzied after the election. A lie spread by the president and his closest allies, some of whom stoked calls for violence. What happened next was pure chaos, insurrection, and death. Then there began a campaign to whitewash history, starting at the top and quickly spreading throughout the Republican party.

In this six-month investigation by The New York Times, we are shown how the events of January 6th, 2021, unfolded via synchronized and mapped videos and police audio of the U.S. Capitol riot.

      This is a painfully dishonest article written by a liar.

      This is what Nancy, her Democrat Communist Party and their ‘left-wing’ media wants you to believe! Her party’s Antifa ‘thugs’, some agents of the FBI and BLM lead the planned riot on the capital.
      Nancy and her ‘son-in-law’ set it up and were involved in this attack from the ‘get-go!’ Also involved were the DC Marxist mayor and the DC police chief!
