Protestors have reached the vacated Chamber and are milling about, looking at papers. Peaceful and completely non destructive. No graffiti, no pilfering. Yet media, and politicians both Democratic AND Republican are denouncing them as violent extremists.
Protestors are inside the building very near the Congressional Chambers. Either inside or right outside the doors. Video shows a calm procession through the foyer toward open doors.
Protestors have pushed up the Capitol stairs and reached the Capitol Building doors
