In photos: the pro-Trump mob's invasion of Congress
On Wednesday afternoon, a mob of pro-Trump protesters stormed the US Capitol, resulting in chambers being vandalized and at least one death. The attack came in the middle of an ongoing vote to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election, and it sent both lawmakers and members of the press scrambling for safety.
Trump supporters breach Capitol in worst display of "petro-masculinity" yet
The National Mall was littered with vehicles left behind by Trump supporters who later stormed and entered the Capitol building in Washington, DC on January 6th, forcing an evacuation. It's the latest, and possibly most egregious, example of a concept called "petro-masculinity."
US Capitol enters lockdown as pro-Trump protesters storm building
Pro-Trump protesters have stormed the US Capitol building, effectively halting a vote to certify the results of the 2020 election. The Capitol is currently on lockdown, and multiple adjacent buildings have been evacuated. Vice President Pence and Senate president pro tempore Chuck Grassley have also been evacuated, and tear gas has reportedly been deployed in the rotunda in an effort to secure the building.
This thread from @jacobian is excellent 👏
Just to give folks who aren't in the field an idea what we're talking about:- we must assume that foreign agents were among the rioters- snooping devices can be implanted into anything with a power cord- so every device in the capitol is now a potential foreign asset
All computers need to be inventoried, inspected inside & out, and the OS paved/rebuilt. Everything with a power source needs to be audited. Including outlets. Any device with writable firmware needs to be binned. "Remember, the S in IoT stands for Security" Assume every piece of classified info in the building is compromised.
