The world is still spinning since the United States Capitol was stormed on January 6, 2021 and new information just keeps coming.
The latest is particularly unsettling as there is not only evidence the violent attack was planned months ahead of time—and out in the open—but rioters may have also had detailed schematics of the Capitol building at their disposal.
A video recorded by one of the rioters from inside the Capitol building appeared on Twitter this week. It showed the explicitly detailed discussion of how to take the rest of the building as well as the Congresspeople who were still inside.

The attack on the Capitol was coordinated and planned.
Here are the insurrectionists talking about the plan, including detailed schematics of the Capitol building.

As if the discovered bombs, weapons, vandalism, looting, zip-tie restraints and cable-fashioned noose were not enough, it’s likely the group had access to schematics of the building, as well.
At the beginning of the video, someone off-camera asked:
“What’s the floorplan?”
Another man with long hair and a beard explained where to go in the building.
“We go upstairs and go around. That’s what we’ll do.”
Someone else yelled about infiltration.
“We need more people! We need to push forward!”
Most startlingly, a woman in a pink winter hat began talking to the group from outside the building with a megaphone.
She was previously caught on camera in another video, helping another woman break one of the windows she would use to speak through to direct the group on the inside.
I WANT that woman in the pink hat arrested by the end of the week. She is an organizer and was involved in trying to break out windows with a ram

She gave them explicit directions about taking the rest of the building.
“Hey guys, I’ve been in the other room. Listen to me.”
“In another room on the other side of this door, right there where you’re standing, there is a glass that if someone can get broken, you could drop down into the room underneath.”
“There’s also two doors in the other room. One in the rear and one to the right when you go in it (the room).”
