Washington: The supporters of president Donald Trump who stormed the US Capitol had "clear plans to disrupt democracy," senior Democrat Bennie Thompson said Tuesday as he opened a congressional inquiry into the January 6 attack. "We know there is evidence of a coordinated planned attack. We know that the men and women who stormed the Capitol wanted to derail the peaceful transfer of power in this country," said Thompson.
