    It already seems like an age ago, but this extraordinary week in US politics began with the release of a taped phone call where Donald Trump tried to get Georgia election officials to ‘find’ the votes to overturn the state result against him. It then ended with Donald Trump supporters storming the US Capitol building – and these events will reverberate through American politics for years to come.
