Rioters gather at the door of the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021 in Washington, D.C. Pro-Trump marchers entered the U.S. Capitol building after mass demonstrations in the nation's capital during a joint session Congress to ratify President-elect Joe Biden's 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON – The first hint of trouble came less than an hour into the debate in the U.S. House chamber about certifying electoral votes from Arizona.

As Republicans outlined their complaints about the election results, a member of the House press staff approached us in the gallery and quietly said we should go back to the press room and gather anything we needed because we were about to be locked in the chamber.

Then came word that rioters who supported President Donald Trump had breached the Capitol, followed minutes later by news that they were in or near the rotunda, just down the hall.
