Some new video has emerged from inside the Capitol, as rioters are trying to crash their way into the House chamber, where lawmakers had taken refuge. You can see the gun of one officer, just before a woman was shot dead trying to enter the Speaker's Lobby just off the floor. Image
Here's the link to the longer video, which shows people trying to knock down the doors to get into the lobby area off the House floor. At about this same time, police with guns drawn were defending the center doors into the House Chamber as well.

This angle, and another from further back, shows Capitol Police walking away from the protecting doors, and going down the stairs to leave the area. That allowed rioters free rein to break the glass/doors. Second later, the woman was shot by the officer on the other side.

Back in the Senate, Sen. Lindsey Graham R-SC says "Enough is enough" about GOP efforts to overturn the election.

"Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected, and will become the President and Vice President of the United States on January 20th."
The Senate is now voting on the objection to the Arizona electors.
The last time the Senate voted on such an electoral vote objection, the Senate rejected the challenge in 2005 on a vote of 74-1.

Only Sen. Barbara Boxer D-CA supported the effort.
