A week before the Capitol attack, on a video call organised by a member of a Christian nationalist group, a Pennsylvania state senator who is the Republican candidate for governor in the battleground state prayed that supporters of Donald Trump would "seize the power" on 6 January 2021.

Doug Mastriano attended the pro-Trump rally in Washington that day, after which supporters, told by Trump to "fight like hell" to overturn his election defeat, stormed Congress in an attempt to stop certification of Joe Biden's victory.

The riot was linked to nine deaths, including suicides in the aftermath of the attack among law enforcement.
