Deadly consequences are still arising from the out of control riots on the United States Capital building that occurred on January 6, 2021 by President Donald Trump supporters. Two U.S. Capitol cops are now dead. Howard Liebengood, 51, killed himself after the riots and Brian Sicknick died as a result of the riots; they were both United States Capitol cops.

U.S. Capitol police were seen in several videos just letting rioters enter the United States Capitol and break windows. President Trump supporters were rioting because they were angry over the November 2020 presidential election results.
