Lisa Wilkinson has launched an attack on Donald Trump - calling the U.S. president a 'criminal' after chaotic and violent riots in which his supporters stormed Capitol Hill in Washington DC.  While displaying footage of the Washington DC chaos showing 'democracy under siege', The Project host Ms Wilkinson addressed the show's viewers on Thursday night saying Trump was 'clearly unhinged'.  Trump has refused to concede his loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden following U.S. elections and urged his supporters multiple times to come to Washington for a rally on Wednesday - as the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate were to certify the results of the Electoral College.  'The fact that he refuses allow this peaceful transfer of power, in my mind makes him a criminal,' she said.  more videos Brigadier Prosser on how the military will assist in Vaccine rollout Care home residents in Stockport receive the Oxford vaccine Matt Hancock insists vac

'It's highly unusual, something I've never seen before in my 30-odd years down here at the beach,' Mr Snook, the City of Stirling beach coordinator, told Nine News.   Mr Snook said there were more than 20 sharks sighted on Monday, and even more being spotted throughout the week.

Him breaking through the police barrier emboldened the others Video stills show how the cops were completely overwhelmed by the sheer size of the crowd.

She later posted her message to Twitter, in a pinned tweet. 'Our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed. As I'm sure is the case with many of you, it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside,' she said. She is the first Cabinet official to quit.  Chao said she would still assist her successor, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who President-elect Joe Biden previously named for the role.  Her last day is Monday, January 10, she said.   Chao's move comes a day after her hus
