Within the Capitol's walls

As a symbol and an institution, the United States Capitol Building is more than just the seat of our government. Correspondent Martha Teichner looks at the history of one of the most recognizable buildings in the world, from its design and construction, to the backdrop it has provided for our democracy.

The defendant has stated he is willing to testify to all individuals and entities involved in the switching of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden when he shall be in total protection for himself and his family. Defendant states he has secured in an undisclosed location the backup of the original data and data switched upon instruction to provide evidence at court in this matter.” The fact that the affidavit was delivered yesterday afternoon before Congress voted on accepting Electoral College votes for an election accused of being fraudulent makes yesterday’s votes by members of Congress all the more remarkable.

    Hi, Faced with the dramatic and shameful events on Capitol , America must immediately end the function of D. Trump, who is entirely responsible for it. Pursuant to the Twenty-Fifth Amendement, HE OUGHT TO BE DESTITUTED or IMPEACHED , TRIED AND CONDEMNED for HIS ILLEGAL ACTIONS (or CRIMES) AGAINST DEMOCRACY, THE CONSTITUTION AND THE USA PEOPLE. Please stop this dangerous man ASAP ! In a democracy, you have to accept the results of the elections. Let us be reasonable, intelligent and courageous in certifying this verdict of the people, even if this verdict obtained only a simple vote to make the majority. This is the rule of universal suffrage. Another important rule: All the culprits-Trump or whoever- are obliged to answer to the Justice .

I honestly do not care about the protest whatever protest all you want but there is no need for marching in and destroying government property cause you are really if you think about injuring the USA 🇺🇸 National Monument and Archives on your own state soil! The presidency itself is BIGGER THAN ONE MAN!

    Are you freaking kidding me??? We lived through months and months of looting, rioting, burning down innocent people's businesses and livelihoods, terrorizing restaurant patrons, killing of at least 23 innocent people who were trying to protect what many took a lifetime to build! Only to have NOTHING done about it, no one condemning it, politicians calling to fundraise to bail those criminals out of jail even! It's SO hypocritical! So when people finally have enough, they take their frustrations out on the government officials who are supposed to protect those innocent citizens but fail to do so. What do they expect? I don't ever condone violence but you really can't cry about this if you've turned a blind eye to the other things. It was bound to happen IMO.

    Because Biden has not been willing to appease the supporters of the constitution by allowing an election audit, he has inadvertently admitted his guilt in covering up election fraud. If he had the backs of all voting Americans, and truly wanted to heal us, he would have demanded an unbiased audit be performed by an independent committee. Lets face it, Biden looks bad because he did almost no campaigning. Could that have been because he knew he would be illegally escorted into the White House via election manipulation. If The Left is in fact innocent of that manipulation ... why not allow the transparency half of the Nation is requesting? It's pretty clear to me that they simply don't want for the truth to be known.

    Little story... I have an Aunt who worked pretty high up in the government in the 1980's. My family was lucky enough to get a "private" tour of the Capitol Building. I was only 10, but I was in AWE. I still remember so many details. How it's impossible to have a private conversation in the rotunda 😉, to being in the Senate chamber, to standing in front of some giant chairs on a dias in some giant room (very intimidating!) We have an American flag that flew over the US Capitol at some point, presented to my Dad by the Speaker of the House. That scene on Jan. 6th 2021 was truly scary, but the Capitol lit up that night was the truth. She stood. She held. She is a glorious building, the Capitol of this beautiful country. May she, and our beloved Country forever stand. 🇺🇸
