WASHINGTON (Reuters) - While Congress acted to impeach him, President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged his supporters to shun violence as the National Guard prepared to deploy at least 20,000 troops in Washington for the Jan. 20 swearing-in of his successor Joe Biden. About 8,000 National Guard troops were on hand for Trump’s 2016 inauguration, Reuters reported at the time. While the House of Representatives debated a formal charge of “incitement of insurrection,” Trump and the Republican National Committee called for an end to violence ahead of the Inauguration. Incoming troops will be responsible for securing the city before Biden’s inauguration, with new fencing engulfing the Capitol area. Two officials said some National Guard troops were deputized as Capitol Police officers to carry out law enforcement functions if needed.

After pro-Trump rioters breached the Capitol building last week, Capitol police implemented new safety protocols, including newly installed metal detectors and mask requirements. Aside from those who argued with Capitol police, GOP freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a QAnon supporter, complied with the new security measure.

ET Capitol Riot Live Updates: Federal Authorities Sound a Warning; Trump Urges No Violence The deadly breach at the Capitol will be a “significant driver of violence” for armed extremists who are targeting the presidential inauguration, according to a bulletin issued by federal authorities. “In lights of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” Mr. Trump said.

The chief of that force was quickly forced out of his job, as were other key legislative security officials. "Prior to this event, the FBI obtained credible and actionable information about individuals who were planning on traveling to the protests who expressed a desire to engage in violence," the senior FBI official told NBC News. The FBI official said that by dissuading some extremists from traveling to Washington, the bureau may have prevented an even more violent situation. Riot police push back a crowd of President Donald Trump's supporters after they stormed the Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021. Washington, D.C. police are responsible for crowd control in the city, and the mayor of Washington told Justice Department officials she didn't want or need their help.

Because the vast majority of the Capitol mob was allowed to leave the building free of arrest, investigators now face the massive undertaking of identifying and tracking down hundreds of people from all over the country. Olivier Touron / AFP via Getty Images“I’m not going to play Monday morning quarterback to see when or why they didn’t do it,” Sherwin said. One demonstrator, an Air Force veteran from California named Ashlii Babbit, was shot dead by Capitol police. "Clearly there's failures," former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Terrance Gainer said on NBC's "Today" show Thursday. "United States Capitol Police officers and our law enforcement partners responded valiantly when faced with thousands of individuals involved in violent riotous actions as they stormed the United States Capitol Building," he said.

They said they saw white privilege and double standards and questioned whether the police response would have been the same had the rioters been Black or brown people or their allies. "What we saw was a system of law enforcement that's designed to protect certain people." Wednesday's riots at the Capitol was an unfriendly reminder of the country's racial double standards. Four people died during the Capitol riots, including a woman who authorities said was fatally shot by Capitol Police. Had that been Black protesters storming the Capitol, we would have seen a completely different response," he said.

She also owned a pool service and supply business with her husband, according to her now-deleted Facebook page. Though some of her family members expressed confusion about why Babbitt would break into the Capitol, her social media postings offered some insight into possible motivations. Using the handle CommonAshSense, Babbitt’s Twitter account was almost singularly focused on radical conservative topics and conspiracy theories. In 2020, Babbitt began to tweet with QAnon accounts and use QAnon hashtags. QAnon conspiracy theorists subscribe to a false belief that high-profile Democrats and Hollywood celebrities are ritually sacrificing children and that Trump is fighting to stop it.

Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Terrance Gainer said he wants to give police "the benefit of the doubt" and hopes they were attempting to de-escalate Wednesday's events when they appeared to let pro-Trump rioters inside the legislative building. A ceremonial event at the Capitol affirming that President-elect Joe Biden won the November election was abruptly paused Wednesday afternoon after hundreds of rioters stormed inside. In the midst of the riot, videos surfaced of police appearing to let the protesters inside the building. The Capitol Police have not publicly commented on the riot and did not return a request for comment on Thursday. Photos from the chaos showed some lawmakers praying as rioters ran amok inside the building, many of them carrying pro-Trump banners and some waving Confederate flags.

And security initially was handled almost entirely alone by the U.S. Capitol Police, a 2,000-member force under the control of Congress and dedicated to protecting the 126-acre Capitol Grounds. In stark contrast, those agencies were aggressively deployed by the Trump administration during last summer’s police brutality protests in Washington and elsewhere in the United States. “I truly had to suspend my disbelief because I didn’t think you could breach the Capitol,” said Gainer, the former Capitol Police chief. As Trump returned to the White House, the crowd headed to the Capitol building. Video footage showed Capitol Police overwhelmed by vastly superior numbers of intruders as the mob grew into the thousands.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Four people died and 52 were arrested, Washington D.C.’s police chief said, after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday to stop Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory. A police officer detains a pro-Trump protester as mobs storm the U.S. Capitol, during a rally to contest the certification of the 2020 U.S. presidential election results by the U.S. Congress, at the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, U.S, January 6, 2021.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The FBI sought the public’s help in identifying the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol, as the Justice Department said on Thursday a policy adopted in the summer to consider sedition charges for anti-racism protesters would also apply in this case. The U.S. Capitol Police said they had arrested another 14 suspects in connection with the rioting, most charged with unlawful entry. Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen “continues his commitment to the charging considerations” spelled out in the summer memo laying out that policy, a Justice Department spokesman said in a statement on Thursday. Several others were arrested on charges related to carrying unlicensed or prohibited firearms. The Capitol Police are now facing questions about why they did not do more to secure the Capitol building.

Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen “continues his commitment to the charging considerations” spelled out last year, a Justice Department spokesman said in a statement on Thursday. Rosen added in another statement that some of the agitators will face federal charges. The Capitol Police are now facing questions about why they did not do more to secure the Capitol building.

DC Police Chief Robert Contee III said during a press conference late Wednesday evening that three people died earlier in the day due to medical conditions amid rioters' violent takeover of the US Capitol building. One adult female and two adult males were reported dead on or around the Capitol grounds in separate "medical emergencies," Contee said.

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser speaks during a news conference on D.C. statehood in the Capitol in Washington on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. The mayor of Washington, D.C., called on Congress to establish a panel to investigate the security lapses that enabled a mob to penetrate the U.S. Capitol Complex and threaten lawmakers. At least 50 officers were injured in the attack, including several who have been hospitalized with serious injuries, Sund said on Thursday. President Trump was literally inciting them. Bowser also called for Congress to transfer control of the D.C. National Guard from the president to her office.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr and U.S. President Donald Trump attend a signing ceremony for an executive order in the Oval Office of the White House on November 26, 2019 in Washington, DC. WASHINGTON — Former Attorney General William Barr has called President Donald Trump's actions a "betrayal of his office and supporters" after pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol. In a statement obtained by NBC News on Thursday, Barr said Trump was responsible for "orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress," calling his former boss' actions "inexcusable." Barr, who ran the Department of Justice, was one of Trump's most loyal defenders in the president's Cabinet. "The violent attack on the U.S. Capitol was unlike any I have ever experienced in my 30 years in law enforcement here in Washington, D.C.," Sund said.

Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser says the invasion of the Capitol Wednesday was "textbook terrorism" and what President Donald Trump "wanted to happen." Bowser also renewed calls for DC statehood, saying that if she were a governor she would have been able to activate the National Guard more quickly. Bowser also criticized the Capitol Police force, which is distinct from the DC Metropolitan Police under her control, for Wednesday's security failures. In addition to a renewed call to make the District of Columbia the 51st US state, Bowser said Congress should immediately grant her the ability to invoke the National Guard. Bowser said that while state governors have the unilateral power to activate the National Guard, she can only activate the DC National Guard with the permission of the secretary of the Army.
