Chief video director Richie McGinniss followed rioters into the Capitol today to witness the chaos that ensued in one of D.C’s most historic buildings.
“I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing through my gas mask. It was a surreal experience seeing such chaos inside the walls of one of our nation’s most sacred pillars of democracy,” McGinniss said.
McGinniss climbed up on an elevated surface to get a bird’s eye view of the riot, but jumped down when he saw rioters breaking into the building.
“The police were overwhelmed by the sheer number of rioters,” McGinniss said.
