What is the Jan 6 capital riot?
A mob of supporters of the Former President of the U.S, Donald Trump, attacked the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C, on January 6, 2021. This Riot is also referred to as the Capitol attack, Capitol riot, or Capitol insurrection, January 6, or 1/6. Trump’s supporters led the action to overturn his defeat in the presidential election of 2020. The incident occurred when a joint session of Congress assembled to count electoral votes that would formalize the success of President-elect Joe Biden(currently the U.S President). Attackers assaulted law enforcement officers, bashed property, and along with it, they also captured the building for several hours; as a result, the capitol complex was closed, and lawmakers and staff were evacuated from the Capitol. It was reported that five people died either before, during, or after the attack. Among five, one was shot by Capitol police, another died of a drug overdose, and three died of natural causes. Many people got injured during the Riot, and 138 police officers were among them. Within seven months, four officers committed suicide who had responded to the attack.

Who was behind the Riot
Trump led the summon, and as a result, thousands of his supporters assembled in Washington, D.C. to assist his false assertions that the presidential election of 2020 was “stolen by emboldened radical-left Democrats.” Trump:s supporters also demanded to reject Biden’s victory from Congress and vice president Mike Pence. Trump kept repeating false claims of the election irregularities at the “Save American” rally on the Ellipse on January 6 in the afternoon and said, “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.” Meanwhile, thousands of attendees marched towards the capital, and hundreds breached cops’ borders when Congress started the voting count. Some moved after the President completed his speech. More than 2000 rioters entered the building, and many occupied demolished, and ransacked it. Mobs assaulted Capitol police officers and reporters. Trump supporters also attempted to find lawmakers so they could capture and harm them as well. Some rioters also chanted “Hang Mike Pence” after he refused false Trump’s false assertions and that the election results could have been reversed by vice president mike pence. Some destroyed and looted the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other members of Congress. To secure members of the Capitol, police vacated the place and locked both compartments of the Congress and several buildings in the capitol complex. It was reported that a Pipe bomb, an explosive device, was found at the Democratic National Committee and Republican National Committee headquarters. Along with it, Molotov cocktails were also found in a vehicle near the Capitol. Trump denied National Guards to suppress the mob. After some time in the afternoon, he again acknowledged that the election was “fraudulent,” but he told his followers to “go home in peace.” The Capitol got cleared by the mid-evening. The counting of votes started again and finished by the following day, January 7. President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were announced triumphantly by Pence. In a television statement, Trump pledged an orderly transition of power after being pressured by his administration and also with the fear of resignation and the threat of eviction.
What action was taken after the Jan 6 Capitol attack
After the Capitol attack in the United States, a proposal was introduced to form a bicameral commission, but it didn’t get successful due to procrastination by Republicans in the Senate. In late May, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revealed that a select committee to scrutinize the incidents as an alternative would be appointed by her after it had become noticeable that obstruction would not be overcome. A vote of 222 to 190 to form the committee was formed by a mutual decision. Two members of the Republican Party named Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney voted in favor. Still, the remaining didn’t vote in favor, and all the members of the Democratic Party voted as well. The house select committee of the United States planned a series of six hearings on January 9, 2022. The first hearing was scheduled for the evening and broadcast Live on prime-time television. Second, third and fourth hearings were scheduled on the 13th, 16th, and 21st of June, respectively. The Fifth hearing has been scheduled for June 23.
In the early report, the aide told the reporters that “We will be revealing new details showing that the violence on January 6 was the result of a coordinated, multistep effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election and to stop the transfer of power from Donald Trump to Joe Biden and indeed that the former president Donald Trump was at the center of that effort.”
