Four years of President Donald Trump repeatedly inciting his supporters to deny reality, resort to violence, and “take back” the country finally came to a violent head Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

Hundreds of Trump’s most die-hard fans, fueled by unfounded conspiracy theories about a stolen election repeatedly touted by the president, managed to break into the Capitol, ransacking offices, climbing the walls of the legislative chambers, and clashing with law enforcement. At least four people died during the fray, one of whom was shot by police, in the first takeover of the nation’s seat of power in more than two centuries.

In the hours that followed the frenzied mob attack, legislators resumed debates and ultimately certified the election results. But the destruction and vandalism from just hours earlier was still very present: bullet-riddled windows and shattered glass, garbage strewn in the halls of Congress, and destroyed furniture.

Thursday morning, even as workers tried to clear the debris, evidence of the destruction could still be found. 

Here’s a closer look at the aftermath of Wednesday’s events.
