Defiant pro-Trump protesters remain on DC streets after curfew

Dozens of pro-Trump protesters remain on the streets of Washington in defiance of the curfew imposed after rioters stormed the US Capitol.

The mostly maskless crowd was forcibly removed from the Capitol after breaking into the building and halting the constitutional process of voting to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s win. They were pushed out of the immediate area and moved down the hill, where they taunted law enforcement and moved barricades.

Police say anyone found on the streets after the 6 p.m. curfew will be arrested. Officers in full riot gear with shields line the streets near the US Capitol.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says their debate on affirming Biden’s victory will continue after the Capitol was secured.
