Some invading rioters defiled the hallowed seat of democracy with their dung in their ill-fated effort to overturn the election, a source close to incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told The Post.
“Congressional staffers saw feces in the hallways,” the source said Friday.
The vile vandals apparently took dumps in bathrooms and then spread around their poop, a Schumer insider said.
“It came from the bathroom and they tracked it around,” the source said. “There was an intentional effort to degrade the Capitol building.”
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) of Brooklyn also reported that some members of the mob urinated on the floors during the rampage.
“There was urine. There was clear desecration,” he told WNYC on Thursday.
Jeffries said Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) had a posterboard memorial tribute to late civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis on the wall in his office.
“That was missing. It was in an area where protesters had clearly penetrated,” Jeffries said.
Authorities are trying to get to the bottom of who stormed the Capitol and caused widespread vandalism, breaking windows and damaging property as they infiltrated offices and posed for selfies.
Rioters clash with police trying to enter Capitol building through the front doors in Washington, DC on January 6, 2021.
The assault on the building turned deadly when a Capitol Police officer shot and killed one demonstrator, Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old Air Force vet who was among those who broke into the bulding.
Police said three other people died from medical emergencies. And Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died in the hospital Thursday after being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the riots.
