On 6 January 2021, a crowd of Trump supporters protesting against the results of the 2020 presidential vote, breached the Capitol building, prompting an immediate evacuation of legislators.
The protesters wanted to stop lawmakers from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election after Trump claimed the results were invalid, citing alleged voter fraud. At least five people died in connection with the events.
More than 725 people have been arrested and charged for their role in the events.
