The Senate is meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 6 to certify the electoral college, with some lawmakers planning to vote against the certification of President-elect Joe Biden.

At a rally earlier Wednesday, President Donald Trump falsely continued to claim that the election had been rigged and encouraged the protestors to go to the Capitol. 

Once the protestors reached the Capitol Building, the scene turned into a riot with rioters storming the building and were able to breach security, forcing the building into lockdown. 

Vice President Mike Pence was quickly evacuated and there are multiple reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is safe, despite her office being stormed by rioters. 

President Donald Trump, following the seizure of Capitol Hill, tweeted his disappointment that Pence did not vote against the certification of President-elect Biden. He later tweeted asking the rioters to "support" law enforcement and then tweeted, after there were reports of an armed standoff between Capitol Police and rioters, to "remain calm."

There has been a 6 p.m. curfew ordered by D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser for tonight.
