    Angry supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in a chaotic protest aimed at thwarting a peaceful transfer of power, forcing lawmakers to be rushed from the building and interrupting challenges to Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

    An Associated Press reporter took cellphone video of the House Chamber as the Trump supporters looked to breach the doors and lawmakers were forced to evacuate.

    Reporters and congressional staffers also fled the building.

    Trump issued a restrained call for peace but did not call on his supporters to leave.
