They were evicted from the Congress building by the police and there were also clashes between the protesters and the police that resulted in fatalities. The BBC reports that “lawmakers have returned to the US Capitol to finish certifying Joe Biden’s election victory, hours after Trump supporters stormed the building in a riot that saw four people die. One woman was shot by police, while three others died as a result of ‘medical emergencies’, officials said “. Washington police confirmed that four people had died in the incidents. A curfew has been declared.
After President Trump supporters broke into the Congress building, White House Deputy Spokesperson Sarah Matthews and White House Social Affairs Manager Rickie Niceta resigned from their positions.
