The National Guard was called in to protect the Capitol in the days after pro-Trump rioters rampaged through the building. The attack, which came during a joint session of Congress to confirm Joe Biden's 2020 electoral victory, shook the nation and left at least five people dead. The House of Representatives is now proceeding with its second impeachment of President Donald Trump for inciting the insurrection.
