Early Thursday morning, after mobs of rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol to interrupt the Electoral College vote proceedings, Vice President Mike Pence confirmed that Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump to become the next president of the United States.

This was the culmination of what is traditionally a largely symbolic process in Congress when the electoral votes are formally read by the vice president, who would then call for objections before moving to the next state’s votes and finally declaring the winner.

Although President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, Trump and his allies have claimed, with virtually no evidence, that the election was fraudulent. Several Republican senators and over a hundred Republican representatives had promised to object over what they claimed to be unconstitutional changes to election rules that would invalidate millions of votes.
