I don't think people truly understand just how serious this coup attempt was.
It wasnt just the moron cult who was allowed into the Capitol. They let everyone and anyone in. Who knows what foreign agents were allowed in? The sensitive information stolen could have serious repercussions all over the world. From agents embedded in terror cells, to back channel negotiations and deals, to data collected on enemies and who knows what else? Lives are in jeopardy, information is in jeopardy, world peace could be in jeopardy. Its that serious of a national security breach. And who knows what could have been left behind? Surveillance and recording devices, bombs, literally anything could have been placed in the building by people who mean us serious harm.
Тяцмр should have been removed by Congress the second they went back into session Wednesday night. That hes still there is an absolute danger to the nation. Every minute he remains is a minute he could do any number of heinous things.
The damage already done is immeasurable and we may never recover. It was that serious. The whole four years have been.
The huge crowd was a great cover and it was publicized well in advance.
And it could have been a blood bath.
Trump needs to be jailed for national security purposes.
Picked it up from a story in the Washington Post. No details.
I mean -- com-on' folks!
Which says nothing against the thrust of the OP. Yes -- this was a dangerous incursion. And we can only hope that a lot of what we envision didn't actually occur. (through nothing more than dumb luck on our part!)
Our countrys enemies never take a day off.
I am certain the CIA assumes that.

...to delay impeachment and removal will reward and fuel the divisions not worsen them...the Republic, the Constitution and the Rule of Law must be upheld and maintained or we'll have nothing but chaos, violence and disorder...
...the consequences of actions in defensive of our democracy are great, but what must be, must be...
...the consequences of inaction are even greater for emboldening and rewarding insurrection will only lead to more insurrection and an even greater threat...
...we didn't want or create this situation but we must not shrink from dealing with it...
...it's our duty, to ourselves and our posterity, to hold accountable all who did...
...may God help America
