Cómo se desarrolló el ataque al Capitolio de EUA

By Jordi Bou

January 6, 2022 - El 6 de enero de 2021, cuando el Congreso estaba reunido para certificar a Joe Biden como próximo presidente de EUA, simpatizantes del presidente Donald Trump atacaron el Capitolio, el corazón del gobierno.

Joe Biden will mark the first anniversary of the deadly assault at the Capitol by honoring the bravery of law enforcement on the scene, and outlining the unfinished work the nation needs to do to strengthen its democracy, the White House said in its first preview of the president’s remarks.

The preview came as Donald Trump announced he was cancelling his own anniversary event, a press conference at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida that had been scheduled for the evening of 6 January.

Four people died on the day of the riot, and one Capitol police officer died the next day of injuries sustained while defending Congress. Hundreds of police were injured during the multi-hour onslaught by Trump supporters, and four officers have since taken their own lives.

Within a week of the riot, which led to five deaths, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump for inciting the insurrection against the federal government at the Capitol. However, on February 13, the Republican-controlled Senate acquitted Trump in a 57-43 vote.
