Megathread (Part 2): Trump supporters storm US Capitol during certification of Electoral College votes

Megathread I

Updates

All timestamps are Eastern Time in US/Canada

~10:00 pm

Congress returns to Capitol to continue electoral count

  • Vice President Mike Pence:

>As we reconvene in this chamber, the world will again witness the resilience and strength of our democracy. For even in the wake of unprecedented violence and vandalism at this Capitol, the elected representatives of the people of the United States have assembled again on the very same day to support and defend the constitution of the United States.

  • Sen. Mitch McConnell:

>We will not be kept out of this chamber by thugs, mobs or threats. We will not bow to lawlessness or intimidation.

  • Sen. Lindsey Graham:

>I don't buy this. Enough's enough. We've got to end it. Vice President Pence, what they are asking you to do you won't do because you can't ... If you're a conservative, this is the most offensive concept in the world, that a single person could disenfranchise 155 million people.

>...Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected and will be the president and vice president of the United States on January the 20th.

~8:30 pm

Per Margaret Brennan at CBS News:

>BREAKING: There have been discussions among cabinet members regarding potentially invoking the 25th Amendment, @margbrennan reports. However, it has NOT been formally presented to the Vice President by cabinet members. @CBSNews

~7:00 pm

Twitter has removed three of Donald Trump's tweets, locked @RealDonaldTrump for 12 hours and has threatened to permanently suspend the account with any further violations.

>As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy. https://t.co/k6OkjNG3bM

>This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain lock
