For a few hours on Wednesday- chaos ruled in the halls of congress. A pro-Trump mob broke down the doors and flooded the building- vandalizing some of the lawmakers offices. A woman was shot dead by law enforcement.  Lawmakers and staff were hustled to safety but otherwise police appeared powerless to stop the mob. 

Once lawmakers returned to debate- some who said they had planned to voice objections to the electoral count, changed their minds in light of the violence. 

On this episode of Intersection- we discuss the chaos in DC with political commentators Dick Batchelor and Frank Torres and former Florida Supreme Court justice James Perry.

Also joining the call: US Rep. Stephanie Murphy and Orange County Sheriff John Mina.
