  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Who Were the U.S. Capitol Protesters—and What Did They Want?” – below is their description.

    The U.S. Capitol was stormed by rioters and the halls of Congress evacuated as supporters of President Donald Trump swarmed past barricades, overwhelming outnumbered police and sending lawmakers fleeing proceedings in which they were formalizing the election victory of President-elect Joe Biden.

    In scenes almost unprecedented in the more than two centuries the building has stood, lawmakers grabbed their gas masks and loud booms echoed across the complex as Congressional security drew firearms inside the chambers of the American legislature.

    Questions are already being raised as to how such an attack on the center of U.S. government could have taken place.
