WASHINGTON — For the first time since the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, Sen. Sherrod Brown has shared his photos of the damage done inside the building after insurrectionists loyal to President Donald Trump breached the Capitol as a joint session of Congress began to count Electoral College votes.
On Wednesday, exactly six months after the attack, Brown shared photos he took the day after the insurrection.

On the day of the Capitol attack, Brown tweeted that he and his staff were safe after they were forced to stay locked in the Senate chamber as Trump supporters stormed the Capitol hallways and offices.
