The goal of this guide is to compile documents and statements by government officials related to the riots at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 by supporters of Donald Trump.
As the attack was related to Congress meeting to certify Joe Biden’s presidential win, the guide will also include statements about certifying the election made by officials immediately prior to the attack.
Because objections were being raised about certain states’ vote counts, the guide also points to relevant statements by state officials. Also included are important announcements about security for the Biden Inauguration. And because the attack has led to a historic second impeachment of Donald Trump for inciting the attack, the guide also includes a timeline linking to official impeachment documents.
