leaving a trail of destruction. four people died. team fox coverage now on the story, live for us in washington, d.c., on the aftermath of the violence on capitol hill. let's go to john roberts. john. >> harris, good afternoon to you. we have heard nothing from president trump yesterday since his social media director tweeted out a statement from that president following the certification of the electoral count ballot very, very early this morning. the president did present the medal of freedom. but nothing from the president so far on camera today. plenty, though, on president trump from other people, including his recently departed attorney general,
10:02 am
william barr, who scorch the president, saying "orchestrated a mob is inexcusable. the president's conduct yesterday was a betrayal of his office and supporters." even his partner, lindsey graham. listen to it he said. >> trump and i, we have had a hell of a journey. i hate that it ends this way. i hated. all i can say is count me out. enough is enough. i tried to be helpful. when it's over, it is over. it is over. >> and a number of administration officials resigning in the wake of yesterday's violence, including a special envoy for northern ireland, mick mulvaney. also white house chief of staff. stephanie grisham, matt pottinger. sarah matthews, deputy press secretary, white house social secretary. and ryan tully.

at the national security council. acting dhs secretary, chad wolf, says he will stay in his position, but also calling on the president to do more to denounce the violence, and his statement saying "what happened yesterday was tragic and sickening. i implore the president and all elected officials to strongly condemn the violence." not long after that statement was put out by chad wolf, the white house informed us that his nomination to be permanent secretary of homeland security had been withdrawn from the senate, but the deputy press secretary insisted that was mere coincidence. in a statement, saying that withdrawal occurred yesterday. it was not related at all to wednesday's event or the acting secretary's comments this morning. secretary wolf remains the acting secretary and continues to perform the duties of his office. a number of officials are wrestling with the idea of dui resign, or do i stay in my position to help ensure an
10:04 am
orderly transition of power? it's a difficult decision for many and one that they will spend the next couple of hours or maybe days mulling it over. they would be better to stay where they are. they could be more effective in terms of the nations future if they did that, rather than pulling the record. >> harris: newt gingrich just told me absolutely stay so that he can be helpful. you only have two weeks. john roberts, thank you. meanwhile, heavy security today and our nation's capitol, following what protesters did, some of them, storming the capitol building. you can see some of the damage here. dozens were arrested during the chaos. at the top dhs officials of this today. >> it is not acceptable anywhere by anyone. will he sent reinforcements, hundreds of our officers, and we
10:05 am
stand ready to continue the level of support. >> harris: mark meadows is live outside the u.s. capitol with more on the aftermath. mark. >> harris, good afternoon. things much, or at the capitol today. we seen a person increase in the number of police officers, national guard, media here. we are nothing any demonstrations, and we've been here since sunrise. however, of course, the investigation into what happened yesterday remains underway. police making at least 69 arrests since the cans unfolded, including 14 arrests for unlawful entry into the capitol. as you mentioned, one woman killed in the officer involved shootings. three others died from medical issues, and more than 50 officers were also hurt. the fbi asking for help in identifying those responsible for all of this destruction. this after officials confirmed that explosive devices were also found not far from the capitol at the nearby republican and
10:06 am
democratic party headquarters. as for the damage inside the building, fox was able to get some video of what the cleanup is like today. workers cleaning up graffiti, repositioning furniture, boarding up windows after glass was shattered. these images are not only disturbing but really acceptab acceptable. >> i had a lot of anger reviewed many of my colleagues, that the capitol got overrun. these were anarchist and terrorist. there is no place for it. >> the chief of the, anticipatig first amendment activity, but make no mistake, these mass riots were not first amendment activities. they were criminal, riotous behavior. what we have seen in lafayette park over the summer and what we are seeing now around the capitol complex. barrier standard for an operation, going up maybe a little bit earlier then we would normally see. normal sized barriers that are up around the office buildings, but these are much bigger, going up today.
10:07 am
when we got here this morning, we saw a lot of people coming into like. the public now being pushed out as security is based on. >> harris: just real quickly, just through its acting attorney general, jeff rosen, had said they are looking to identify perpetrators, charge federal crimes where warranted. actually being charged today. and we will continue to methodically assess evidence, make arrests in the coming days. that from the doj. to add to your reporting which was already so thorough. thank you very much. appreciate it. senator bill cassidy, republican senator from louisiana joins me now. senator, first of all want to get your first person take on the day after. where do you go forward from yesterday? speak up first, thank you. the first thing to think about .
10:08 am
we came back into session. we had a peaceful transfer of power. we certify the electoral college votes. our democracy works. and no matter what these insurrectionist what attempted you, they failed. our country's institutions stronger than they. that is what i think the day has. >> harris: amen to that. "the new york post" piece is out today, senator cassidy, and it says "political violence must be done by the right and the left." "there is no reason to accept the escalation. millions of trump supporter's are horrified by wednesday as evidence. just as millions of liberal democrats no doubt were shocked by the post george floyd looting. but this is the digital age. the folks in the middle don't assign the debate. the resistance does. the country needs more than anything else right now and
10:09 am
immediate bipartisan embrace of zero-tolerance for politically motivated violence of any sort." senator cassidy. speak up i am totally accepting of that, although i would add to it, i'm pretty concerned. i'm real concerned. and so, i would say even when you push the right on the left of center, you are still with those who do not tolerate violence. we are americans first. and it is only the fringe that would embrace it. we are always united against the fringe. they wish to impose their narrow vision of how the world would work upon the rest of us. those are called fascists. and that is not what our constitution is about. so, we need to work together, for us as americans, solutions for americans, but frankly also, to protect our freedoms. the more people abuse our
10:10 am
freedoms, the less freedom that you have. one more thing. as i listen to your message, barricading off the capitol grounds, normally people jogging there. back there. now it's barricaded. we lost our freedom of mobility because people abuse to the freedoms they have. we have to visit that. >> harris: i want to get you this now. mike gallagher of wisconsin said this on tucker carlson last night. speak well, i think anyone who is telling you that business as usual in d.c., somehow these people are going to move on, is lying to you. what we are witnessing is not just a specific frustration about the election but a culmination of a loss of faith in the basic institutions of our country. foremost among them, congress. >> harris: how do we get that back? senator.
10:11 am
>> we get it back by having a goal of getting something done. i will say from my own perspective, on addressing surprised medical billing. you go to the hospital, you've got a $10,000 bill. what we came up with, 34 senate cosponsors, 17 republicans. 17 democrats. we ended up getting all of the democratic committee chairs on board in the house of representatives. it took us two years. it was a lot of work and give-and-take. it happened. the group that when pelosi and schumer weren't talking to mcconnell and the white house, we came together independently of them, came up with a plan, and that was implemented. it can work. it just takes effort. it takes commitment to put our country first. >> harris: a lot of people were looking at that kind of work that you're just describing for a stimulus relief package.
10:12 am
going forth, let's see if what you have outlined could actually begin to take hold. i appreciate your time so much. senator cassidy. glad you are okay. >> thanks. >> harris: lawmakers are considering whether we were not prepared to contain yesterday's chaos. what must be done to make sure there is not a repeat on inauguration day or anything like it. >> they just need an overwhelming police force. nothing deters criminal activity plan like an overwhelming police force. it said that we have to do that when we are celebrating the peaceful transfer of power. ♪ ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete, balanced nutrition for strength and energy. whoo-hoo! great tasting ensure with 9 grams of protein, 27 vitamins and minerals, and nutrients to support immune health. and nutrients to it's a newith va loans.ran homeowners with mortgage rates at record lows

>> wasn't like people didn't know yesterday was going to be a contentious day. it's been building for weeks. there should have been a better plan in place to secure the united states capitol. it was an embarrassment not only in our country but around the world for people to see that happen to the united states b-17. should have never happened. cannot happen again. >> harris: that was steve scalise. lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle are now questioning how a mob managed to breach the capitol yesterday. head of the subcommittee in charge of funding capitol place. "there will be an investigation. someone will be fired. "this is an embarrassment. a heads will roll." can rest when beyond d.c. police responded to demonstrations outside trump tower in new york city and chicago last night, and in kansas, 200 people in the streets, storming the statehouse. in washington, d.c., excuse me,
10:18 am
washington state, the grounds of the governor's mansion were breached. joining me now, former chief of police, fellow at the institute. daniel, great to see you today. first of all, talk to me about the preparation that you personally saw from your own experience, leaving so many. >> so, the capitol place had a reputation for handling large-scale events and large crowds. there should have been a multifaceted, multi-response plan implies that when the frontline got breached, additional resources would have surged in quickly to reinforce them. it is all about maintaining the crowd behavior. if you've got individuals who start engaging in violence, you need to have resources that can overwhelm them, and in quickly, change the attitude of the crowd, that they realize there are consequences for the action, and that didn't occur yesterday. there needs to be a full accounting of what was the plan? what was the intelligence, and
10:19 am
what exactly played out? we need to have a report of the good the bad and the ugly. make sure this never happens again. this was end of the building that was attacked. this was our democracy that was attacked, and it can never happen again, and we need to learn the hard lessons to prevent it from ever occurring. >> harris: you know, it's interesting. you said what was the plan? what was the intelligence question it started with the rally with the president speaking for over an hour. people were singing. there was a complete shift in town for some of them. what do you look for a head is something that was so joyous? speak up you are looking at what's being said on twitter, what's being set on 4 chan, to then engage in hijacking and violence. that was clear and out there.
10:20 am
and that should have been appropriately addressed and a plan to have resources. the best thing that could have happened, predeployment of national guard and regional troops to be standing by. hopefully we don't need them, but if glass is broken like yesterday, and not figurative but literally, you can put resources and very quickly to overwhelm those crowds that are trying to deal i'm here >> harris: yet, it be really interesting to see. i'm always kind of a personal responsibility type of woman. i want to see who exactly was doing what. i don't make any assumptions about jerseys that people where or any of that. on the ground, all this came is to tell us who did what. today, the chief of capitol police with a statement. "it was unlike any i have ever experienced in my 30 years in law enforcement here in washington. have a robust a plan to address anticipated first amendment activities, but make no mistake. these mass riots were not
10:21 am
first amendment activities. they were criminal riotous behavior." almost echoing some of what you just said, daniel. >> the other challenge we have both, a lot of the protesters were people who trespassed. what is the appropriate use of force for people who are trespassing? you can use lethal force against the crowd that is getting into a building ordinarily. if they've got weapons, putting people's lives in harm's way, that changes. it is charged as a misdemeanor. they can to use lethal force, which is that was an option, that crowd would have started turning back if officers did that. we don't want to have lethal force he is like that, but we need to have alternatives. the best is to have an overwhelming number of officers who could have prevented people from making a decision to engage in behavior that they came criminal and taking it away from what was started as a peaceful protest but turned into a
10:22 am
criminal attack on our capitol. >> harris: that is a fascinating point of fact because they are so many questions about it look like people were being let in. exactly what is your list of options, then, if it's trespassing? that is really fascinating. >> if we've got 85,000 people coming at me, and i've got eight cops. we can't put handcuffs, we can use our pepper spray and our sticks on them. if they are doing is walking at me, i don't, i don't have the ability to use lethal force. hopefully we have some distance thing we can do. but other than that, you can overwhelm officers, and unless they've got reinforcements and get there very quickly. >> harris: 56 police officers, at least, that we know, who were harmed. our thoughts are with them, along with the four people who died. it's good to see you. thank you so very much for your time and expertise. >> thanks, harris.

there should be no cash bail to make sure that these people get out as quickly as possible. there are consequences to those types of actions, and the media did not report it. now, that's no excuse for what happened at the capitol. that was one of the most shameful, unpatriotic days that there is. it is the patriotic thing to protest, and that's what most people were doing, but when you step over the line and attacked a police officer, when you're smashing windows, going on the floor of the senate, that's as un-american as you get. and i want to see those people in jail with maximum sentences. but i want them to do the same thing to those people that were attacking the federal courthouse for more than a month in portland, oregon. how come those people and prosecuted? >> harris: look, i remember police officers coming to work and learning about the doors to their present have been locked from the inside and in fact there were some people in there as they were doing things like trying to set the place on fire. those are not protesters. those are writers.
