A video showing Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, D-Del., praying during the riot at the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday has gone viral and in a recent interview, the politician explained why she turned to God instead of fearing the rioters.

The viral video shows Blunt Rochester fervently praying as rioters made their way into the House chamber. The violence unfolded when hundreds of fringe Trump supporters broke through barricades and stormed the Capitol building.

peaceful rally and protest were attended by tens of thousands of Trump supporters at the Ellipse earlier in the day. Twenty minutes before Trump closed his speech at the Ellipse, rioters had breached the Capitol where a separate rally and speeches had been planned outside the building that afternoon. Violent clashes between Capitol police and rioters resulted in the deaths of six people, including a Capitol officer who took his own life days later.
