    Tear gas has been used in the building.

    They lose the numbers game, big time.

    This could go sideways really quick. Hope cooler heads prevail.

    I pray that he is, but heís not going to be AG fit at least 15 days.

    Trump needs to be sanctioned before then.

    How in the world were they not prepared? I could see this coming from 2,687 miles away.

    Trump just tweeted a call for peace. "Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on side of our Country. Stay Peaceful."

    I guess he wants everyone to think he'd shoot someone on 5th avenue, not for it to actually happen. I'm sure many here feel the absolute rage at seeing something like this now after the last 4 years of his rhetoric.


    Kitzinger just tweeted what the world knows: This is a coup attempt.

    Thatís not enough from Trump. He needs to do/say more.

    Disagree on plenty of force. Riots/protests frequently go on for days because there truly isnít sufficient force to stop riots/protests without killing people.

    This is going rapidly in the direction of people being killed.

    It didn't start today.

    I can think of a lot of people who ought to steer clear of 5th Avenue for awhile.

    Trump used the word "peaceful" during his speech earlier as a CYA for himself - he is incredibly talented at using language such that he can claim that he is not at fault for anything.

    I'm sure those protesting are all "very fine people." And of course this is not nearly as bad as the protests this summer. I will go no further.

    So far, so good. Sheltering in a locked file room in a locked office suite.

    It'll be a miracle if this de-escalates successfully without massive violence. I'm hoping for that miracle.

    THANK YOU!!! Exactly my point. Absolutely unacceptable that these people would be anywhere near the Capitol, especially on this day. This is an inside job.

    My wife crossed 5th Avenue this morning on her way to a doctor's appointment, not too far from Trump Tower. Safely knowing that he was in DC.

    I just turned on my TV to see what is happening and they are doing a test of the emergency alert system for New York City. Very odd timing.

    Some reports that some people have broken into the Chamber itself, not just the building. House is being guarded at gunpoint.
