CNN's Manu Raju described the scene while being evacuated at the US Capitol after rioters breached the building.
There are police officers in riot gear and gas masks, and the smell of tear gas is throughout the building, Raju reported.
"These rioters have clearly ... breached all elements of this building. You're seeing debris, trash, all in the elevators, things knocked down, posts knocked down, and this is clearly a sign of how they are gone into all parts of this building," he said.
He did not see any rioters currently inside of the building, he said.
