Video from CNN’s Ali Zaslav shows the extent of the damages a pro-Trump mob left in its wake in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, including the ransacked office of Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough.
The Twitter post shows documents from closets and desks ripped out and tossed onto the office’s floor. Other items like furniture, baskets and beverages are also seen scattered around the room.
Zaslav also included more pictures of damage in other Senate offices, including broken benches and damaged statues.
Most of the damage came from Wednesday afternoon when hundreds of supporters of President Donald Trump broke into the U.S. Capitol while in session to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory. While Trump has encouraged and excused the riots, they’ve largely been condemned outside of his base. As a result, Trump has been suspended on several social media platforms.
