Since Jan 6, Remove Trump has held daily "Swarm the Senate" protests on Capitol Hill demanding the Senate remove Donald Trump from office. On Thursday, Jan 16, these protests escalated to civil disobedience and 11 arrests as Senators were formally sworn in for Trump's post-impeachment trial. A conviction on either article of impeachment removes him from office.

There were six arrests in the Russell Building, and another 5 in the Hart Building. At one point, protesters entered the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, demanding he recuse himself from the trial presumalby as he is simply too close to Donald Trump.
