Telegraph, 09 Jan 2021
Joe Biden said the mob who invaded the US Capitol should be hunted down and brought to justice as the FBI began a nationwide search for the intruders.
The president-elect said they should be treated as a "bunch of thugs, anti-Semites and white supremacists."
He added: "They're terrorists. Domestic terrorists. the fact is they should be prosecuted. The difference here is this had the active encouragement of a sitting President of the United States."
It came as many of those who roamed the corridors of power, including the so-called "QAnon shaman," had already left Washington for their home states.
