Supporters of President Donald Trump gathered Wednesday in the nation’s capital to hold a March for Trump to “demand transparency and election integrity,” which subsequently turned violent. 

While Congress was debating certification of the disputed results of the Electoral College vote making Joe Biden the next president, protesters stormed and entered the Capitol.

Here are 22 photos and videos of the violence.
