Shocking moment US Capitol invader sat on Senate leader's chair and screamed 'Trump won!'

This is the moment a pro-Trump protester entered the US Senate, sat on its dais and shouted: ‘Trump won!’ the unidentified protester was snapped by Huffington Post reporter Igor Bobic during protests on Wednesday which saw the US Capitol building in Washington DC stormed by protesters of President Trump.

Bobic tweeted: ‘They’re in the chamber. One is up on the dais yelling “Trump won that election!” This is insane.’ Other protesters waving pro-Trump flags and placads have since made it onto the floor as well. Hundreds of protesters made it inside the building while Joe Biden’s certification hearing was underway, forcing congressmen and women to abandon the ceremony and evacuate.

President Trump himself attended their protest earlier on, and encouraged them to descend on the US Capitol building to disrupt a congressional hearing to certify Joe Biden’s win. Congressmen and women halted the certification hearing and were evacuated after the Capitol building itself was breached by protesters.
