The Mayor of Washington called the storming of the Capitol a terrorist attack

The storming of the Capitol the day before was an act of domestic terrorism. That’s what Washington Mayor Mariel Bowser called it at a press conference,

“I call on the Joint Working Group on Terrorism to investigate, detain and prosecute anyone who entered the Capitol grounds, destroyed other people’s property or committed acts of domestic terrorism,” the mayor said, urging the US Congress to create a panel to investigate what happened.

Bowser stressed that President Donald Trump should be held accountable, as should his supporters. According to the politician, the head of state wanted the Capitol to be a riot.

For security purposes, Capitol Hill has decided to enclose a fence nearly two meters (seven feet) high. It would remain there for 30 days.

On January 6, protesting supporters of Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building and surrounded the Senate chamber. The Senate and the House of Representatives interrupted a session scheduled to approve the results of the last election. According to this data, Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election.
