scuffling with police inside the united states capital outside thousands have besieged the building even at a time when everything seems remarkable in american politics these are astonishing scenes inside the chamber security personnel with guns drawn at the windows members of congress sheltering in place on the floor people taking what they could as souvenirs at least one person was shot critically injured police say others were injured in the clashes the chaos and violence indicative of a country riven and a slice of the population unwilling to accept defeat they’ve been sent on their way by a president almost two weeks to the moment when he’ll leave the white house for the final time continuing to make the case he didn’t really lose at all now it is up to congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy and after this we’re going to walk down and i’ll be there with you we’re going to walk down we’re going to walk down anyone you want but i think right here we’re going to walk down to the capitol and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them what he called the evidence has already been debunked but as he was speaking his own vice president was taking his place in congress for what’s usually a formality of certifying his and trump’s defeat would he adhere to the constitution or bow to trump’s pressure to somehow try and overturn the election .

we got our answer before he started speaking that’s my statement yes here it is is my statement out he says that statement that he did not have the authority to reject the votes still plenty of republicans continue to object is the objection in writing and signed by a senator yes it is it is it would mean hours of debate but the outcome is inevitable and senior republicans now defying trump this election were overturned by mere allegations from the losing side our democracy would enter a death spiral it wasn’t long after the process was suspended because of the violence outside let me be very clear the scenes of chaos of the capital do not reflect a true america do not represent who we are what we’re seeing are a small number of extremists dedicated to lawlessness this is not dissent it’s disorder it’s chaos it borders on sedition and it must end now the calls for calm from the president came long after the violence had started i know your pain i know you’re hurt we had an election that was stolen from us it was a landslide election and everyone knows it especially the other side but you have to go home now we have to have peace we have to have law and order we have to respect our great people in law and order we don’t want anybody hurt but never is the anger and division in america being quite so direct and two weeks out from this place hosting what should be the peaceful transition of power what are the chances all of this ends with donald trump’s presidency greg milam sky news washington
