The United States Congress is under attack by supporters of Donald Trump.

The supporters stormed the building and forced the Senate into a recess in what is a violent end to Trump’s failed coup attempt.

The attacks followed the Democratic sweep in the Senate and just ahead of Congress voting to certify Joe Biden’s election as president which have now forced the U.S. Capitol complex to lockdown.

The National Guard has been called in and eyewitness video captured police repelling the attackers with batons, pepper spray, and tear gas, leaving smoke in the air and blood on the ground.
