Almost 70 people were arrested during Wednesday's events, and the police and Federal Bureau of Investigation are asking the public for help in identifying other suspects.

Dozens of police officers who were at the Capitol when a swath of protesters descended upon them are recovering from their injuries almost a week after the insurgence.

The courageous intelligent actions of Capitol Hill Police Officer Eugene Goodman is now being fully understood.

One Capitol Police officer recently went viral after he was caught on footage confronting the unruly supporters of Donald Trump who broke into the Capitol building.

Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump are confronted by Capitol Police officers outside the Senate chamber inside the Capitol building in Washington on January 6, 2021. Goodman at one pointappears to look down the hallway to the entrance to the Senate floor, which was unsecured at the time, according to the Washington Post. Goodman then seemed to bait the leader of the crowd, identified as Doug Jensen, into following him away from the Senate doors and into another room where back-up was waiting for Goodman. A video of the Senate floor posted by the Capitol Hill reporter Jamie Dupree showed the senate was still full at 2:21 p.m.

Many people praised Goodman for saving the lives of politicians and staffers who were reportedly still in the chambers.

"I've talked to officers, who have done two tours in Iraq, who said this was scarier to them than their time in combat", acting D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee said.

The video, taken by Huffington Post politics reporter Igor Bobic, shows Goodman diverting the mob away from the Senate chamber, which was not guarded and could have led the violent Trump supporters directly to lawmakers. "God bless him for his courage", US Rep. Bill Pascrell wrote in a Twitter message on Sunday.

Unfortunately, 4 people and 1 police officer of the Capitol died during the riot on Wednesday.
