What was the purpose of allowing the rioters to enter the capitol building?

    NOT a coup. If that was their purpose, they'd have come heavily armed, really heavily armed, shot the place up, and,, stayed for and occupied. Make concrete demands in unison, etc. 

    Their purpose was probably varied, and in a general sense, it was to create a ruckus and vent frustrations of varying intensities.
