A video from inside the Capitol published Sunday gives an inside look at the violence that took place in Washington after Trump supporters breached the premises, smashing windows, vandalizing property and pushing back against police in a shocking scene that left five dead.

The video filmed by reporter Luke Mogelson and published by The New Yorker gives perhaps the clearest sense of what happened when supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump forced their way into the U.S. Capitol as Congress convened to certify the results of the presidential election.

"There's got to be something in here we can f****** use against these scum bags," a man says as he is seen in the Senate chamber, flipping through a binder of documents with his phone camera out.

"I think (Ted) Cruz would want us to do this, so I think we're good," another man adds.

In another chaotic scene, rioters tell police "You're outnumbered. There's a f****** million of us out there and we are listening to Trump—your boss."

More than 125 people have been arrested so far on charges related to the violent insurrection led by supporters of Trump at the U.S. Capitol, where a Capitol police officer and four others were killed.

Charges from the January 6 riot range from curfew violations to serious federal felonies related to theft and weapons possession.
