‘Revolution In Process’: Trump Supporters Storm Capitol Hill, Shots Fired

Following the “Million Man MAGA Rally” held in Washington, D.C., the Electoral College count started on Capitol Hill. Vice-President Mike Pence issued a statement minutes before the certification process, and many say that it caused Trump supporters to storm Capitol Hill. Then, shots were fired inside the building. Don’t miss this.

Total mayhem broke out on Capitol Hill. January 6th is the date millions of patriots were hoping that their voices would be heard. Reports say that half a million to a million Trump supporters trekked to converge on Washington, D.C. as the vice-president presided over the Electoral College count.

Many were already in D.C. on Tuesday night. One Twitter user posted a video of patriots singing the national anthem spontaneously in a D.C. eatery.

“Patriots in DC are ready for tomorrow. Watch this. Chills,” posted  Newsmax reporter Benny Johnson.

Mayhem erupted following the rally in which President Donald Trump spoke about alleged election fraud and irregularities. VP Mike Pence issued a statement minutes before the Electoral College count. In short, Pence refused to intercede in any meaningful way:

“Vice-President Mike Pence Announces: The Constitution Restrains Me From Claiming Unilateral Authority To Determine Which Electoral Votes Should Be Counted,” tweeted The Last Refuge:

Blaze TV reporter Elijah Schaffer was on hand to capture the rally and the storming of Capitol Hill. 

“WASHINGTON DC: There are at least 100,000+ people just in the overflow for the event. Videos can not describe the size of the crowd. This is wild,” he posted.

“BREAKING: patriots have stormed the Capitol building ground and are breaching federal barriers and police in the masses. No cell service but video coming. Non lethal force in effect. Full unlawful assembly in display. Never seen anything like this. Insane. Thousands occupying,” Schaffer posted.

“BREAKING: Trump supporters have breached the Capitol building, tearing down 4 layers of security fencing and are attempting to occupy the building — fighting federal police who are overrun. This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Thousands, police can’t stop them,” the Blaze TV reporter added.

“BREAKING: Trump supporters have breached all security barriers and are now actively destroying and occupying the Capitol building I repeat. The Feds have lost control of the Capitol building. Revolution in process. Not a drill. Videos to follow tonight live on BlazeTV,” Schaffer updated on his Twitter feed.

“BREAKING: revolution in process as Trump supporters break into the Capitol building, attacking police, breaking windows, and knocking down doors. Full anarchy at this ‘mostly peaceful’ demonstration DC. The people have pushed through & are storming to main chambers,” Schaffer posted.

“BREAKING: I am inside Nancy Pelosi’s office with the thousands of revolutionaries who have stormed the building To put into perspective how quickly staff evacuated, emails are still on the screen along side a federal alert warning members of the current revolution,” Schaffer updated.


Around this same time, President Trump tweeted: “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!”

“I told you this was coming and I’ll tell you something else right now: It gets worse from here. The people within The System simply do not have a clue the level of anger there is outside of The System. I told you all. You poked and prodded and laughed and mocked. Now it’s here,” posted podcast host and reporter Jesse Kelly.

As of this writing, thousands of protesters are occupying the Capitol Hill building steps. Reports are a few protesters remain inside the building. Newsmax’s Emerald Robinson was sent into the Capitol Hill basement.

“DEVELOPING: The Capitol remains under lockdown as the building was breached by protestors,” tweeted Robinson:

This animosity toward members of Congress has been building ever since the November election. The mainstream media ignored allegations of election irregularities presented at various hearings while Big Tech social media platforms censored or shut down free speech.

There are reports of shots fired. One Twitter user captured the moment on video. There is apparently no information on who fired the shot:

President Trump called for order and pleaded to not resort to violence:

“I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!” he posted.

When the Democrats schemed to overthrow the election by using the courts to get Obama-appointed judges to override election laws, what did they expect? When over 60 million Americans believe this election was stolen, did they think there would be no blowback?

While no one can support violence, the majority of the Trump supporters are peacefully occupying the Capitol Hill building steps. They did not go inside and start mayhem.

Trump supporter Caleb Hull posted: “Someone was just brought out of the U.S. Capitol on a stretcher with what appears to be a very serious injury.”

Newly elected Congresswoman Lauren Boebert said it best at the joint sessions hearing before it was interrupted by the mayhem: “If we allow state election laws as set forth by state legislatures to be ignored and manipulated on the whims of partisan lawsuits, unelected bureaucrats, unlawful procedures, and arbitrary rules, our Constitutional Republic will cease to exist.”

It’s time to call for peaceful protests and to await all of the facts. So, stay tuned and pray for anyone who may have been injured. Remember who is ultimately to blame for this Constitutional crisis. It’s not President Trump. This started the day he was elected and has now culminated in this violence and mayhem.
