Crowd breaks fence at Washington governor’s mansion

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Pro-Trump protesters broke through a gate at the Washington state governor’s mansion Wednesday afternoon and dozens of people gathered on the lawn. The crowd, some of whom were armed, touted repeated unfounded allegations of election fraud and it came the same day pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Via Twitter, the State Patrol said authorities were responding and that Gov. Jay Inslee “and his family are in a safe location.” The crowd was cleared from the mansion area after about 30 minutes. Inslee said Wednesday night in a video he shared that the acts of intimidation in Olympia will not succeed in any way, shape or form.
