DONALD Trump fans got into Nancy Pelosi’s office and read her emails after they stormed the Capitol building.
Republican supporters were seen inside the Speaker’s office after they forced their way in following a Save America March in Washington DC.
Computers were left on as members and staff rushed to safety.
Blaze TV reporter Elijah Schaffer, who had also gotten into Pelosi’s office, wrote: “I am inside Nancy Pelosi’s office with the thousands of revolutionaries who have stormed the building.”
The reporter also tweeted a picture of her unlocked computer screen, showing her emails.
Hundreds of Republican supporters stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday and a woman was shot as bloody clashes erupted in Congress.
The female was shot in the neck and is in critical condition, while tear gas was fired by police in sickening scenes.
The chaos came as members of Congress were meeting to vote and certify the election results.

President Trump called for calm as violent scenes broke out.
"I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!" Trump tweeted.
A graphic clip shared on social media showed a woman bleeding out from the neck after she was allegedly shot.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer released a joint statement on Wednesday afternoon, demanding Trump tell the demonstrators to leave the building.
"We are calling on President Trump to demand that all protestors leave the U.S. Capitol and Capitol Grounds immediately," the statement said.
As chaos ensued outside, staff were told to evacuate Capitol buildings.
Video shared by Timothy Burke showed one cop injured in clashes with demonstrators was evacuated from the area.
In a second video, multiple officers who were reportedly injured were seen walking away from the chaotic scenes.
Earlier in the day Donald Trump had addressed the Save America March supporters, repeating his claims the presidential election had been rigged, but still offered no evidence to support his claims.
In his speech, Trump railed a "bulls*** election" as he made repeated unfounded claims of voter fraud.
"Make no mistake, this election was stolen from me, you, and this country," Trump alleged in an unbacked claim.
Just minutes after his speech, protesters knocked down fences outside the Capitol.
