The New Yorker has released reporter Luke Mogelson’s video from inside the U.S. Capitol during the January 6 insurrection. Mogelson followed the invading Trump supporters as they breached the U.S. Senate chamber and rifled through documents and other intellectual property.
It’s a fascinating look at the outdoor rally and the ultimate overtaking of the Capitol as some security officers backed up, acknowledging invader warnings that “you’re outnumbered.”
Mogelson used the video as a reporter’s notebook for his comprehensive written piece “Among the Insurrectionists.”
Here’s an excerpt:
One of the insurrectionists is heard in the Senate chamber telling his colleagues, “While we’re here we might as well set up a government.”
Zip Tie Guy Eric Munchel and his mom Lisa Eisenhart have both been arrested on a variety of federal charges related to invading the U.S. Capitol.
