Trump’s Supporters Driven Out By Eugene Goodman
On 6th January, Wednesday, when Donald Trump’s supporters had stormed inside the Capitol Building and started destroying the property, Eugene Goodman successfully managed to steer some of them out.
Eugene Goodman is a police officer at the Capitol. One of the reporters of CNN by the name of Kristin Wilson had noticed this act of bravery and loyalty by Goodman. He was seen removing some of the rioters out of the Senate and securing the chambers of the building.
It is seen in one of the confrontations that Eugene Goodman comes between a rioter in a black t-shirt and the corridor that leads inside the chambers of the Senate. After that, he pushes the man and the following crowd in the opposite direction of the inner hallway.
