US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decries the “attempted insurrection” at the US Capitol by mobs of Trump supporters.

“The United States Senate will not be intimidated. We will not be kept out of this chamber by thugs, mobs or threats,” he says, calling the protesters an “unhinged crowd.”

He says: “We’ve never been deterred before and we won’t be deterred today. They tried to disrupt our democracy and they failed.”
