Police have ordered evacuations of two buildings on Capitol Hill, according to reports, as supporters of President Donald Trump stormed past barricades at the back of the Capitol building. The Washington Post said the Library of Congress James Madison Memorial Building and the Cannon House Office Building were ordered evacuated by Capitol Police.

The Post also said hundreds of Trump supporters pushed through the metal barricades, running past security guards and breaking fences. Lawmakers are meeting Wednesday to confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory despite the prospect of objections from a majority of congressional Republicans.
