Unseen scenes took place today at the United States Capitol where the session to certify Joe Biden as U.S. president was interrupted after an invasion of pro-Trump protesters who literally took control of Congress, congressmen were taken to safety by the police.
The political instability was caused by Trump's speech hours earlier in which he reaffirmed that "there was election fraud." Then supporters went to the building and invaded Congress with several Gadsden flags.
Biden's certification as president had to be stopped and the senators were taken to a safe place.

After 1 hour, Trump decided to post a video asking for peace, but continued without acknowledging Biden's victory. As a result, Vice President Mike Pence stopped following Trump on Twitter.
"Trump is my president," says a protester's flag
“The violence and destruction that is taking place on the United States Capitol must stop now. Everyone involved must respect the police and leave the building immediately. Peaceful protest is every American's right, but this attack on our Capitol Hill will not be tolerated, and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. ”, Mike Pence, vice president of the USA.
Bitcoiners celebrate dollar weakness
Those who celebrated this situation were the bitcoiners, who saw the invasion movement as a moment of weakness for the government responsible for the world value reserve, the dollar – increasingly weakened by the FED.
Pro-bitcoin senator Cynthia Lummis elected in Wyoming commented on the incident by mentioning the first amendment to the American constitution.
“The First Amendment protects only a peaceful meeting. Stop the violence, ”said the senator in response to Congressman Steve Scalise.
