As the plans for Biden's presidency begin to unfold, tensions amongst the pro-Trump community have escalated.

While it's taken weeks for the president himself to concede to Biden...

His supporters have been fueling the flames behind his various election fraud allegations.

And on Wednesday, those tensions reached a breaking point.

On January 6th, during which a joint session of Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden’s election win, lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the U.S Capitol Building.

Hundreds of rioters forced their way into the prestigious building...

Breaking windows, doors, and furniture along with chants of "stop the steal!"

The rioters took over several of the rooms and chambers in the building...

And photos showing them looting objects, such as the lectern of U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, quickly started circulating online.

A group of rioters even broke into Pelosi's office...

From this, more violence ensued...

As rioters clashed with the few police officers in presence.

The scenes shocked people all over the globe...

And the world watched on, transfixed, as more and more rioters continued to spill into the Capitol and clash with police.

Shortly afterward, it was confirmed that there had been fatalities within the Capitol.

Chief Robert Contee III of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC, confirmed the news during a press conference.

It quickly emerged that one female rioter had been shot dead by police...

However, details surrounding the other 3 fatalities remain unclear. "One adult female and 2 adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies on or around Capitol grounds," Contee said, "which resulted in their deaths."

From the get-go, there were calls for Trump to intervene.

The president was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down.

He instead issued a series of tweets...

Where he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was "on our side," and to "remain peaceful."

Hours after his supporters had stormed the Capitol, however, Trump finally released a video telling them:

"Go home, we love you, you’re very special."

But it seems one photo in particular from the siege has drawn in attention, for a very specific reason.

"While we support all employee’s right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing."

The publication also reports that police identified him on Thursday morning as a person of interest in the unlawful entry into the Capitol building.

A handful more protesters have been fired.

Following the riots, news emerged that Texan attorney Paul Davis lost his job at Goosehead Insurance.

They revealed the news on Twitter:

Paul Davis, Associate General Counsel, is no longer employed by Goosehead.
Then news emerged that Pennsylvania state representative Rick Saccone resigned after his employer, Saint Vincent College, launched an investigation.

Michael Hustava, Saint Vincent's Senior Director of Marketing and Communications, told CNN:

As a result of that investigation, Dr. Saccone has submitted and we have accepted his letter of resignation, effective immediately. He will no longer be associated with Saint Vincent College in any capacity.
Well then.

Numerous protesters have been arrested too.
