The reaction after a pro-Trump mob stormed the United States Capitol Wednesday is mixed. Some users on social media say “this” is the result of widespread fraud in the Presidential election.

Courts, state and federal election officials, news outlets, and even high-ranking Trump allies have investigated claims of widespread election fraud and found they are none that were true. There was no widespread fraud in the Presidential election.

Other Americans waking up this morning are in shock and sadness after witnessing the American carnage on the federal building during an attempted peaceful transition of power, the Electoral College tally.

News4Jax is working to get pictures this morning from inside the Capitol to show you what’s been left behind. The gallery above shows some, but not all, of the trail of damage rioters left.
