Rioters who unlawfully entered the US Capitol building on Wednesday left their mark on the halls and offices and in the history books.
According to a report, a source close to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says the rioters literally took a dump on the US Capitol. "Congressional staffers saw feces in the hallways," he tells the New York Post.
Apparently, some of the trespassers crapped in the bathrooms of the building and then tracked it around the halls. "There was an intentional effort to degrade the Capitol building." He added that reddish brown "foot-prints" were left all around the buidling. "It looked like they tracked it around."
Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, a representative of New York, told WNYC, "There was urine. There was clear desecration." He added some items were also stolen from his office.
Throngs of rioters smashed doors, windows, fought with police officers and vandalized offices of lawmakers in an attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Congress had been counting Electoral College votes to officially certify Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.
Police and authorities are currently in the process of identifying individuals who took part in the raid Capitol building. One rioter was shot and killed during the rampage, one Capitol Police officer died, and three other supporters of President Trump died of medical emergencies related to the protests.
