SHOCKING Protesters were walking door to door of the Senate, shouting “Where the fuck are they?”

After protesters stormed Capitol Hill as lawmakers met to certify the Electoral College votes, some of them climbed the third floor of the Senate, walking door to door, shouting “Where the fuck are they?”

Protesters entered the Senate chamber, and one got up on the dais yelling “Trump won that election!”

„This is insane„, tweeted Igor Bobic, political reporter for HuffPost.

The crowd, sporting a mix of Make America Great Again gear and Confederate flags, charged up the Capitol steps and rushed at police, as multiple videos from the scene show.

They busted past barricades, ripped down fencing, and cursed at members of law enforcement whom they mocked as “traitors.”

Police fired pepper spray at the crowd, and later deployed flash-bang devices to get them to disperse.

A woman was reportedly shot inside the Capitol amid the melee with Trump supporters, sources told ABC News. She was seriously injured, sources said.

Before storming the Capitol, protesters were on a pro-Trump rally — where President Trump spoke – and then descended on the Capitol to protest the certification of results.

Amid riots Capitol office buildings were evacuated, members of Congress sheltered in place, and the Capitol went on lockdown.

At least two explosive devices were found, one at a building that houses RNC offices and one in the US Capitol complex, a federal law enforcement official tells CNN. The devices were pipe bombs and were successfully destroyed by a bomb squad.

“This is a coup attempt,” tweeted Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.).

After the situation escalated, Trump released a video statement in which he told his supporters to “go home now”.

“I know your pain, I know your hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side but you have to go home now,” he said. “We have to have peace, we have to have law and order we have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anyone hurt,” he said in a video.

The Senate floor has been cleared of rioters, officers say, and they have successfully squeezed them away from Senate wing of the building and towards the Rotunda, and they are removing them out the East and West doors of the Capitol.
