Today’s invasion of the Capitol was witnessed by dozens of videographers, some of them sympathizers, who posted their work to social media. Collectively, they tell a breathtaking story of a seditious mob intent on attacking the nation’s democratic institutions.
We collected some of these videos into a single piece that tells this story. What we’ve gathered so far only covers the siege from its beginnings through the moments when rioters breached security barriers and invaded the Capitol building and attempted to enter the chambers themselves.
No doubt, there will be more as the day continues, as well as when night descends on Washington, D.C., and we will post it here.
