At that moment, in the Capitol, Congressmen were engaged in approving the results of the electoral college vote, according to which Joe Biden became the winner of the presidential election. The session of the Congress was interrupted, some of the congressmen were evacuated.
When order was restored in the Capitol, US House of Representatives and Senate approve Biden’s victory.
