The U.S. Capitol was declared secure on Wednesday evening, about four hours after a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the building and forced debate on Joe Biden’s victory in the Electoral College to be suspended.

“I have faced violent hatred before. I was not deterred then, and I will not be deterred now,” Representative Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, a member of the congressional leadership and a veteran of the civil rights movement, said in a tweet. “Tonight, Congress will continue the business of certifying the electoral college votes.”
