Trump Mob Chanted “Hang Mike Pence” While Marching on Capitol, New Footage Shows

Thursday night’s new footage released by the January 6 committee shows a detailed timeline for the day of the rebellion. We feature the video they played that shows how Proud Boys and Oath Keepers marched from the National Mall — where Donald Trump delivered a speech pressuring Mike Pence to recertify the election results to deliver him a victory — to the Capitol Building to chants of “Hang Mike Pence,” before they violently pushed through police barriers and broke into the government building chanting “Nancy.”
