Wednesday’s assault on the U.S. Capitol by mobs of rioters incited by President Trump unfolded quickly and chaotically. At 12:53 p.m., the first Trump supporters reached the barricades in front of the capitol, demanding to be let through. The inexplicably small number of cops on the scene held the line at first, but were quickly overwhelmed. By 1:15 p.m., thousands of Trump extremists filled the steps and balconies of the Capitol. By 1:33 p.m., the insurrectionists breached the Capitol.
