National Guard troops fill US Capitol during Donald Trump impeachment debate

CA, 14 Jan 2021
As the U.S. House of Representatives gathered on Wednesday to consider impeaching Donald J. Trump for his role in insurrection of the U.S. Capitol last week, National Guard troops lined the interior of the Capitol building, which just five days before was violently stormed by the president's supporters.

At least 15,000 National Guard troops, included some armed members, have been ordered to Washington, D.C., to secure the city before president-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, with new fencing and other security measures engulfing the Capitol area.
