“They breached the Capitol,” Matt Laslo with The News Station, an online site, tweeted on Wednesday as supporters of President Donald Trump broke into the U.S. Capitol as Congress met to certify the Electoral College vote for president.
“Here we are ducking and covering,” tweeted Politico’s Olivia Beavers.
“I am live. My name is Tia Mitchell. I’m a reporter with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. … I’ll start out by saying personally, I am OK. It was scary. I am shaken up. I have said my prayers. But right now I am OK,” Mitchell said in a video shared on Twitter and Facebook.
