U.S. Congress seals Biden’s election victory after chaotic day in Washington

The U.S. Congress finally affirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory early Thursday, after an Electoral College vote count that was interrupted by both Republican objections and supporters of President Donald Trump who violently sieged the Capitol.

Vice-President Mike Pence declared Biden and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris the winners of November’s election, putting the final nail in the coffin for Trump’s hopes that the results could be overturned, either by Pence or Republican lawmakers.

Those hopes had helped Trump’s supporters to storm the Capitol building Wednesday, interrupting the vote count and debates resulting from Republican efforts to strike down the results of battleground states. Four people were killed over the course of the riot, which forced lawmakers to shelter in their offices and the House chamber for hours.
