Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) said that the rioters who stormed the Capitol ransacked his office and stole a laptop.
Merkley posted a video of himself returning to his office after he was evacuated after the Capitol was breached Wednesday.
In a video posted on Twitter, Merkley said that rioters “smashed the door virtually off its hinges.”
Rioters “tore things off the walls,” including art on his wall, left a cigarette butt that was stamped out, and stole the laptop, Merkley added.
“So count this office is trashed. You can see the debris is all over the floor,” he said.
Merkley sits on the Senate Foreign Relations and Senate Appropriations committees.
