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...

With one posing in her chair with his feet up on the desk.

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 4 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." Later, it was reported that another person had also died.

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, from his official account which has now been suspended from all social media platforms...

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."

Photographs and videos of Wednesday's scenes continue to circulate online...

Many of which also show the aftermath of the siege.

The videos and images have been quick to go viral on Twitter...

And show the extent of the damage that was done within the building.

Rioters even left various messages throughout the building.

As well as lengthier notes...

A bust of Zachary Taylor even had a red substance smeared on it.

Now, some of the perpetrators of this horrific crime have already been brought to justice.

Several arrests have already been made, with key suspects being identified via video footage from the scene.

Many weren't too hard to spot, given their choice of riot gear.

From CEOs to retail employees...

There seems to have been a whole array of attendees at the riots.

But now, one person has offered an unlikely viewpoint on the riots.

Musician, Lana Del Rey, has spoken out, and her words have shocked everyone.

Many believe she was defending President Trump.

"I once had a call with George K. Simon, who wrote a book called A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing and it was all about people who don't know they hurt other people, like Trump. You know, he doesn't know that he's inciting a riot and I believe that," she claimed.

"The madness of Trump, as bad as it was, it really needed to happen. We really needed a reflection of our world's greatest problem, which is not climate change, but sociopathy and narcissism."

"Especially in America. It's going to kill the world. It's not capitalism, it's narcissism."
