According to the New York Post, video footage from Trump supporters’ invasion of the U.S. Capitol yesterday shows a Capitol police officer holding the door as a stream of cheering insurrectionists filed out of the building.
“We made it! Woooo!” shouted one woman, who was carrying an American flag and wearing a Trump hat.
Another protester shouted, “Next time we’ll be back! And we won’t be peaceful!”
A second officer was seen briefly helping protesters open another door that had been vandalized with the words, “murder the media.”
