US violence: When the lawmakers met inside to formally certify Biden’s victory over Trump in the November 3 election, demonstrations flared as in US Capitol. The authorities of Law enforcement struggled to maintain order.

The Police opened fire in which four people died, including one woman who was shot by a police officer. In attempt to stop the demonstration, the police were forced to open fire, amid protests and rioting on Capitol Hill by supporters of outgoing President.

Donald Trump swarmed inside the building, when the lawmakers were counting Electoral College votes to certify President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President elect Kamala Harris’ election victory.

Metropolitan Police Department Chief Robert J Contee, in a late-night news conference, said that 52 were arrested over the violence that saw pro-Trump rioters breaking windows, climbing on rafters, ripping down U.S. flags and roaming the Senate chamber.

According to the Washington Post, instructions were given to Lawmakers to grab gas masks as police deployed tear gas inside the Rotunda, the ornate area under the dome that connects the House and the Senate.

Vice President Mike Pence and lawmakers were evacuated to safe locations, as lock down was placed in the House and Senate and the entire Capitol.

The Senate, which had objections to Biden’s victory brought by a band of pro-Trump Republican lawmakers, has voted 93 to 6 against the effort to reject Arizona’s electoral count, overcoming the first of what may be multiple hurdles to the November presidential election’s certification.

The House of Representatives are yet to vote on Arizona. It is expected to fail in the House of representatives too. Congress would continue its process to certify the electoral votes of all 50 states.

Though Biden won the election by 306-232 in the state-by-state Electoral College and by more than 7 million ballots in the national popular vote, Trump continues to falsely claim there was widespread rigging and fraud and that’s why he was defeated.

” McConnell said on the Senate floor, ‘The voters, courts and states “have all spoken, “If we overrule them, it would damage our republic forever,” he added.
