Photos: Scenes from the Capitol during the breach

When a pro-Trump mob breached the U.S. Capitol building, photographers captured scenes of people forcing their way into the building, as well as walking around slowly and taking pictures.

Some of the violent protesters got inside the U.S. Senate chamber and took a seat at the presiding officer’s chair, where Vice President Mike Pence was sitting earlier this afternoon as the Senate debated Arizona’s Electoral College votes.
