SWAT units are ready to breach the US Capitol, after thousands of patriots stormed the building and one unarmed Trump supporter was shot by DC Police – National Guard units are being deployed.
Thousands of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol Building, following Mike Pence’s betrayal of President Trump, when he announced he would not use his constitutional authority to reject Electoral College votes from states with serious election integrity issues.
The DC Police were overwhelmed as supporters of the President entered the building. DC Police reportedly shot and killed one unarmed, female Trump supporter through the windows of the Senate floor to the hallway outside.

SWAT units will not be the only squads on the ground, as the National Guard has also been authorised to mobilise within Washington DC, only minutes after the unarmed Trump supporter was shot in the Capitol. Virginia is also now sending state troopers.
National File will continue coverage of the protests.
