That means Pence must avoid angering Trump along with large numbers of Republican voters who have bought into the presidents unsupported claims of widespread election fraud and have been falsely led to believe that Pence has the power to reverse the outcome by rejecting the votes from states such as Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania that swung from Trump in 2016 to Biden in 2020.

"You have a huge, huge portion of the people who aren't going to take it any more". More than 350,000 people have died from the virus in the US.

The Capitol Police reported 14 arrests during the incursion, including two people who were detained for assaulting a police officer. One civilian was shot inside the Capitol on Wednesday. The source says there are several suspicious devices outside the Capitol building. Members of Congress have been evacuated and are safe, officials said.

Congress was due to confirm Biden's victory on Wednesday.

Dozens of people breached security perimeters at the Capitol and lawmakers inside the House chamber were told to put on gas masks as tear gas was sacked in the Rotunda.

Trump tweeted his disapproval of Pence after returning to the White House. The group was moved to another location in the complex.

The shocking scene was met with less police force than numerous Black Lives Matter protests that rolled across the country in the wake of George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police officers past year.

In a significant new crackdown, social media companies pulled down the video on charges it aggravated violence and Twitter temporarily suspended his account, warning the tweet-loving tycoon of a permanent ban if he does not conform to rules on civic integrity.

Arizona GOP officials claimed Biden's win was the result of "massive election fraud", but a federal judge in the state threw out an attempt to overturn the results.

The House of Representatives will also vote on Arizona, and the effort is expected to fail there too, before Congress continues its process to certify the electoral votes of all 50 states. Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips yelled loudly at Republicans, "This is because of you!" The framers knew what they were doing when they gave responsibilities to Congress.

Those protesters eventually breached the door. The notice was later retracted.

Each chamber would then vote to accept or reject the challenge and then report the result to the joint session of Congress, before moving onto the next challenge. He noted that the election results were not even close, and that dozens of courts had thrown out lawsuits alleging irregularities.

Patients Evacuated from Italy Hospital as Sinkhole Swallows Cars Parked Outside
The operations at the Italian hospital were not affected and firefighters said it didn't appear anyone was injured. The regional governor, Vincenzo De Luca, said the residence would reopen after utilities were fully restored .

The developments come on a day of already high tension in Washington.

The move came after Trump urged his supporters to descend on Washington to protest Congress' impending certification of Joe Biden as the victor of the November presidential election.

The runoff special election in Georgia was called late Tuesday evening for Democratic candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock, who unseated Loeffler, the Republican appointed to fill the vacancy left by retiring Sen.

Supporters of President Donald Trump cary flags and banners on Capitol Hill during a rally, Wednesday, Jan. 6, Washington.

The pro-Trump mob took over the presiding officer's chair in the Senate, the offices of the House speaker and the Senate dais, where one yelled, "Trump won that election".

"We will never give up", Trump told his noontime rally. Among the leaders of the march was Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist who has long promoted Trump on his InfoWars show and podcast.

A number of prominent Trump supporters were expected to attend the protest events, which began on Tuesday with a rally at Freedom Plaza near the White House. The District of Columbia's Mayor, Muriel Bowser, issued a curfew for 6 p.m.

Romney said, "President Trump has disrespected the American voters, has dishonored the election system and has disgraced the office of the presidency". He asked for calm in the US Capital, saying "enough is enough".

Each state delegation would get a single vote, a scenario that favors Trump.

As darkness began to set in, law enforcement officials worked their way toward the protesters, using percussion grenades to try to clear the area around the Capitol.

The statement was released as Trump urged Pence at a rally in Washington to decline to certify the results.
