The US Republican Party has described the storming of the Capitol in January last year as “legitimate political discourse” – voting to censure two leading Republican politicians who took part in the inquiry into the violent riots, and President Trump’s role in fuelling it, including urging former Vice-President Mike Pence not to certify the election results.

But last night Pence broke with the former president, disputing Mr Trump’s claim that he could have overturned the result.
