Inside the U.S. Capitol at the height of the siege | Visual Forensics

Publicerades den 16 jan 2021
At 2:12 p.m. on Jan. 6, supporters of President Trump began climbing through a window they had smashed on the northwest side of the U.S. Capitol. “Go! Go! Go!” someone shouted as the rioters, some in military gear, streamed in. It was the start of the most serious attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812. The mob coursed through the building, enraged that Congress was preparing to make Trump’s electoral defeat official. “Drag them out! … Hang them out!” rioters yelled at one point, as they gathered near the House chamber.
Officials in the House and Senate secured the doors of their respective chambers, but lawmakers were soon forced to retreat to undisclosed locations. Five people died on the grounds that day, including a Capitol police officer. In all, more than 50 officers were injured.
To reconstruct the pandemonium inside the Capitol, The Washington Post examined text messages, photos and hundreds of videos, some of which were exclusively obtained. By synchronizing the footage and locating some of the camera angles within a digital 3-D model of the building, The Post was able to map the rioters’ movements and assess how close they came to lawmakers - in some cases feet apart or separated only by a handful of vastly outnumbered police officers.

  • The fall of America is soon. Be ready

  • Mess for fbi comment,the fbi been lyeing and covering up for demorats and there crimes for years! FBI, CIA both have been infested with crooks and criminals for a long time now! What use to a honorable organization is now a clean up cover up tool for the corrupt elite demorats

  • Trump said he would walk down there with them instead he sat in his tent with his son watching the raid of the capitol he was never behind his followers

  • For those watching this 20 years later never let this happen again

  • Amazed that the Capitol Police were the only ones defending the Capitol. Also amazed at how they just just talk with all of these rioters as if there is nothing wrong going on.

  • All that and for what...biden what still confirmed

  • 12:25 Realy And people still support blm

  • F U. Washington Post

  • This is more interesting than a very good basketball game that's a nail biter and the winner storms the court.

  • "TODAY IS A DARK DAY IN THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL: JOE BIDEN WAS CONFIRMED PRESIDENT-ELECT DUE TO STOLEN VOTES RIGHTFULLY BELONGING TO PRESIDENT DINALD TRUMP. VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE IS COMPLICIT IN THE THEFT OF SAID VOTES"

  • Lol set up..what a joke..

  • If i were the Police Officers i would be violent or shoot

  • No, you can't have "order " Nothing had been in order since 01/20/2017.

  • American capitol is more secured then area51..i see i see

  • This happened because Trump LIED to these people and they believed him and they still believe him. He LOST. The election wasn't stolen. Other than the Proud Boy and Oath Keepers and other White supremacists, He turned otherwise law abiding citizens into animals with his LIES. THAT is what history will remember.

  • What an insane group of people. The greatest moment is seeing these domestic terrorists like the oath keepers renounce their oaths after a shakedown after being arrested by the FBI. This group is grade A weaksauce. It would be hilarious but this was not a fringe group; there are media heads l who continue to parade fabricated or extremely misleading news to insight violence or act as a dog whistle

  • Whan an Infamous day

  • By lgbgq laws. Those capital police help each Congress at capital will face prison 10year because president joe biden sign transgender laws. Police not Post help those was against bathroom laws those was against male play in women sports

  • Hello history students from the future

  • "Occupy do not destroy" lol what is this Call of Duty?

  • Can’t believe I’m going to be in a history book.

  • The only people who disliked this video are the rioters who had their face recorded.

  • What’s fascinating is all the video.

  • Only one person died and it was not a Trump supporter that shot her and it was ANTIFA THAT STARTED all of the mess !

  • Senators and officials were completely surrounded. This could have ended with hundreds of rioters massacred and senators dead if it wasn’t for the professionals this would be a worse day.

  • Next time you make a video take the bias away. We can tell your'e far left leaning.

  • Hi random people Hope trump is arrested for treason

  • That is scary, especially when your inside the chamber and you hear someone say "The protestors are in the building" 😳

  • A terrible incident, shoudnt be possible.

  • everyone else:in a panic Me: jumps off the wall should someone with a clean head shot. My friend: what are you insane?! Me: is this this call of duty? My friend: :0

  • If this wasn’t such an important building I’d say they should have locked the doors from the outside with the savages inside and “knocked over a candle” and let the building go up in flames.

  • *Dumb Trump Minions still in denieal*

  • All because trump is a legend in his own mind

  • Hahaha happy

  • On January 6th the antifa marched in the front of the crowd dressed as Trump supporters and broke into the doors filmed here(among other things) while on the other side of the building police and guards opened doors and let Trump supporters in... THOSE are the true FACTS!

  • To bad they didn't get the dirty democrats

  • Alll of those people might as well be conferderates and donald trump is their dictator. Seriously i bet all those people come from former conferderate states and their disgusting inbred flag

  • Such BS

  • Goodman is a badass hero.

  • Officer Goodman was incredible. Professional, smart, and proactive. He strategically moved the mob away from the senate chamber and into that police line. He remained calm as he could be and was not aggressive. Well done.

  • "Americans"

  • Those are american patriots!

    • I agree. The people have the right to overthrow an oppressive government.

  • Im gonna be able to tell my future grandchildren that i witnessed this on tv 📺

  • God says BOO!

  • If you wanna take me down; go ahead and try! So its been three four years and yall got your thumb up your asses when i told you whats wat in advance and during and still so. Chicken's

  • Stupid girl

  • She spoke to someone listening in on the band thats whom said copy, copy? This must have happened during the Miley Cyrus protest. She was probably killed. During that concert.

  • Where's Paris?

  • Or my waggoners saving my ranch

  • Anyone who blames Trump for this, get help.

    • Excuse. What do you mean.

    • You get help. Trump told them you do it. He told them go fight like hell and take back the country, bringing his ongoing big lie to an eruption.

  • Hello, history students of the future.

  • Why did the WaPo only quote dem congressmen?

    • There were a few conservatives quoted

  • Question...why didnt the police draw their guns at the doors and threaten anyone who comes in and shoot if they had to. Wasnt it their job to secure the capitol? That might have ended it causing rioters to back off. Just wondering about that. Ofcourse we dont ever get an answer to our questions. Sorry, that's the truth.

    • That is what the powers that be will NEVER own up to, but I think the predominant skin color of the terrorist mob was the deciding factor.

  • This makes me happy

  • Lol they can gun down gas and taze innocent protesters but when there's an actual threat they just stand around. Murica.

  • This is total Shiite

  • The Killing of the Buffalo.

  • Soilders during Black Lives Matter protests:armed to the teeth. Soilders during capitol riot: nerf gun

  • That's not a riot. That's a lynch mob.

  • Damn that’s a lot of brainwashed people. Idiots. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • who pays antifa; soros, dnc, ... ?

  • We want trump hmm, sounds like antifa after trump not pelosi. They knew she wouldn't b in her office.

    • They wanted him alright. They wanted the corrupt motherf to have four more years to serve their hateful causes from the most powerful office in the world.

  • When I saw this on the news my mom was telling me this was the 1st time the capitol has been raided in like a long long time, I can’t believe the next time the capitol was raided was just a bunch of trump supporters that need a life. Also hello to the people in the future in history class learning about this.

  • The frequent bench correspondingly doubt because key expectedly communicate anenst a tremendous cherries. quack, delicious ease

  • I was sure the U.S. capital was one of the most guarded place in the world and they would shot anyone entering it without permission, but i was wrong...

  • hello future people

  • WHAT A WASTE OF TIME IMPEACHING TRUMP

  • Eugene Goodman was on the job. No "tour guide" in that man.

  • What a bunch of idiots, storm the Capitol, go to jail !!!

  • I would have had a hard time not pulling my gun out on these idiots. Of course, this isn't the war of 1812, only people with money with nothing better to do following their god

    • Donald Trump would have liked a mélé with bodies stacked 3 or 4 deep. The chaos would have given him what he wanted.

  • how many of the rioters had explosives?

  • how many of the rioters had guns?

  • And still, Trump supporters still comparing this riot to freaking BLM protests........

  • When lockdown has made Americans fight itself....

  • It’s simple let trump be in the White House and this won’t happen

  • ja ja ja solo una pregunta porque los policias del capitolio no dispararon contra los alborotadores ? las policias en estados unidos estan acostumbradas a disparar ,los videos que aqui pasaron muestran lo que parece una policia europea,de alemania o belgica que no disparan ni en defensa propia,pero en cualquier otro incidente con policias estadounidenses ,surge de inmediato el procedimiento de primero disparar y luego investigar,esto fue un vil montaje , Bienvenidos a el tercer manadato de Barack Obama

  • ... But in the end, Nothing really matters. Like ashes off the end of my cigarette ... So are the days of our stupid lives.

  • Trump lost my vote when he wasn’t leading this charge and when he tried to deflect blame. All he had to say was ya I exited this mob there’s more forming try and arrest me the election was stolen we are going to war draw your lines pick your side god will sort us out.

  • Terrible terrible

  • BLM DoEs thIs To

  • hello people in 50 years when this is in history class

  • Why?

  • So let a child correct a bunch of adults. The ant ifa were there. :/

    • No antifa was not there, at all. Antifa stands for "anti-fascist". Why would they march side by side with fascists (which were confirmed to be there)?

  • I could listen to you talk about grass growing.

  • And DONALD J "SMELLY" DUMP TRUMP WAS FOUND "INNOCENT" OF INSTIGATING THIS.....I hope NY decares him GUILTY OF THE CRIMINAL OFFENSE OF FRAUD, thus rendering his FATA55 ineligible for the upcoming elections.... " I used to complain of GEORGE DUHHHHBAYA BUSH DUM B A55, UNTIL PUTIN GAVE US DONALD DUMP" (Trademark JA )

  • Any of these terrorist that are active or inactive military should be court marshaled!!! Retired military can be recalled and charged !!!!

  • They SHOULD B CALLED "PROUD LIL GIRLS!" 😂

  • Idk who to believe anymore

  • All the Rioters that were injured and some that died deserved it, just wish many more of them would've been killed in this madness.

  • and the blm protest are considerd terriost. Us looting is being terriost, But the rioters were putting a death threat , and was trying to assinatie.

  • The United States of kenya bama..biden ..kamala.. Rip

  • Further proof that there was coordination with the organizers of the demonstration. How did they know that Trump was going to turn the crowd around to march and when to begin their assault?

  • Within days of this event, the National Guard from all 50 States arrived in D.C.. Why? Only Trump could have called them, did he meet with the commanders of the Guard Units? We are still in a State of War remember, for as long as it takes to fight terrorism. USS Lindsey Graham on his youtube page has a 32 or so min. clip of him questioning Nominee Kavanaugh. Start at about 24 mins in where Sen. asks about the Law of Armed Conflicts. It ends when the Senator says about traitors "You know we executed them" . The DOD Law of War is available on line it makes interesting reading.

  • Blm protest worst then this just saying

  • Ending of usa coming soon

  • God bless all the American soldiers of Liberty in this war against Communist tyranny of the fraud Biden and the Satanic Communist party.
