A new video released by The New Yorker shows pro-Trump intruders inside the US Senate chamber following the storming of the Capitol on 6 January, with some photographing documents and facing off with police. At one point, the insurgents have a disagreement about sitting in the chair reserved for the president of the Senate, vice president Mike Pence. One rioter says: ‘I love you guys, we’re brothers, but we can’t be disrespectful’. One intruder is seen searching through a binder on the desk of senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who has challenged the election results and voted to overturn Biden’s electoral college victory. ‘I think Cruz would want us to do this,’ the rioter is heard saying.
