Here are President-elect Joe Biden's comments about the violence in D.C. now, in part.
"Our Democracy is under an unprecedented assault on the citadel of liberty, the capital itself.
"An assault on the people's representatives and the capital police, sworn to protect them, and the public servants who work in the heart of the republic.
"This is not dissent. It's a disorder. It's chaos, and it borders on sedition. And it must end now. I call on this mob to pull back now.
"I call on President Trump to go on national television ow to fulfill his oath and defend the constitution and demand an end to this siege.
"It's not protest. It's insurrection."
