A confronting video has emerged showing a crowd of supporters of US President Donald Trump viciously dragging a police officer to the ground and bashing him with the US flag.
The disturbing footage comes as further, disturbing images surface revealing the moment the violent crowd bashed police officers attempting to secure the Capitol during Wednesday’s violent uprising.
An officer can be seen being dragged from the entry way of the Capitol down the stairs by the mob, as the crowd chanted, “USA, USA”.
The crowd then pulled the officer onto the ground, and began bashing him with US flags, Trump flags, sticks and poles.
Two members of the mob are also seen waving around walking crutches.

An overhead shot shows the officer laying on the ground as he was held down and beaten.
The officer was stomped on and also hit with a broom during the attack, according to a report from CNN’s Ana Cabrera.
Ms Cabrera said the mob were using “anything they had” to attack the officer.
Multiple outlets are working to confirm if this footage shows Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who was fatally injured on Wednesday, and died from his injuries the following day.
Other shocking footage has emerged since the violent uprising last week, showing the mob of Trump supporters viciously attacking the line of police at the front of the Capitol building.
Video from New York Times investigator Evan Hill shows members of the mob climbing over one other to kick at the police.
Another video shows rioters hitting at police with hockey sticks.
Five people died during the siege, including Capitol Police Officer Sicknick.
Another veteran officer who responded to the attack, Howard Liebengood, took his own life three days afterwards.
The President released an order for flags at the White House and all public buildings to be flown at half-mast following the deaths of Officers Liebengood and Sicknick. The notice came three days after Sicknick died, the day after the uprising at the Capitol.
It was Mr Trump’s first comment on Officer Sicknick’s death.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi released a statement offering her condolences on behalf of the House of Representatives.
“Officer Liebengood was a patriot who dedicated his life to defending the Capitol and protecting all who serve, work in and visit this temple of our Democracy. His passing is a great tragedy that compounds the horror of this past week,” she said.
