His supporters continued to fuel the flames behind his various election fraud allegations.

And on Wednesday last week, 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...

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...

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, has drawn in attention for one very specific reason.

And, shortly afterwards, Maryland-based printing company, Navistar Direct Marketing, officially announced it's decision to fire him.

Navistar Direct Marketing said in a statement that they had been made aware of a man who was wearing a Navistar badge inside the Capitol building...

And, after reviewing the photos, the employee - whose name has not been made public - was fired.

A company spokesperson told Forbes that Navistar has since contacted the FBI about the former employee.

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 were then 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.

Another big rioter was then quickly stung.

This time it's the man who was photographed "taking over" Nancy Pelosi's office.

He was identified as Richard Barnett.

The sixty-year-old is facing federal charges for his actions.

And now, yet another rioter has been arrested.

Doug Jensen, who is believed to be part of the crowds that stormed the Capitol, was allegedly filmed chasing a police officer through the building.

Jensen is identifiable in multiple pictures and video online due to his knitted cap and black "QAnon" T-shirt over a sweatshirt.

In video footage shared online, the forty-one-year-old appears to be chasing a police officer up a flight of stairs, despite numerous calls for him to back down.

He then appears to continue chasing the officer, leaving the crowds of rioters behind. 

His picture was released by the FBI on Thursday, December 7, LadBible reported.

Jensen has since been arrested and taken in on 5 federal charges.

Des Moines Register reports his charges are to include: Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, disrupting the orderly conduct of government business, violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building, parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building, obstructing a law enforcement officer during a civil disorder.

The arrests have been coming in thick and fast over the past few days...

And they are likely to continue into the week. Make sure to stay posted for further updates.
