Nightdocs: The Capitol Riot: As it Happened. This is a minute-by-minute accounting of the events leading up to and on January 6, 2021 when Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to stop the counting of the electoral votes cast by the states to certify Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.
This video is not intended to be political commentary, rather it is meant to lay out a factual accounting of the important events of the day.
Like everyone, I have my own personal political bias, but every attempt was made whether you believe I was successful or not to not editorialize the events with commentary or with the editing of this video.
My purpose in making this is so that anyone wanting an accounting of the events of the day can see them in one place in chronological order. There are bound to be errors in chronology and editing, and some time stamps may or may not be accurate, but I gave it my best shot. Timestamps were taken from Twitter posts and from known times. For the purposes of this video, I would look at timestamps and chronology as relative, rather than exact.
