Capitol Hill Update
Congress formally certified President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election following a chaotic day on Capitol Hill. The process was delayed after rioters broke into the Capitol building, forcing an hours-long lockdown that pushed the certification process into the early morning hours. Despite repeatedly stating that he will not concede the election and supported GOP lawmakers’ efforts to overturn results in several states, President Donald Trump issued a statement after the certification saying “there will be an orderly transition” to the incoming Biden administration. The President-elect will be sworn into office on Wednesday, January 20.
