Republican National Committee's headquarters evacuated after vials of blood are addressed to Trump

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican National Committee’s Washington headquarters was briefly evacuated on Wednesday as police investigated two vials of blood that had been addressed to former President Donald Trump following the presumptive presidential nominee’s takeover of the national party apparatus.

Hazardous-materials teams were called in after the vials were discovered, according to the U.S. Capitol Police, who said they would continue to investigate. It was unclear if anyone came into contact with the blood and to whom it belonged.

The vials were addressed to Trump, according to a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak about it publicly. It was unclear if any message accompanied the vials explaining why they were sent.

Spokespeople for the RNC and the U.S. Secret Service did not immediately return messages seeking comment. The Metropolitan Police Department and the local fire department referred comment to the Capitol Police.

Count me skeptical of this incident. Obviously, I don't discount some nut might pull a stunt like this--nor would I ever condone it, but neither do I rule out (at this stage) that this is an intentional stunt.

Think. Again.

....I really can't be expected to take any rightwinger at their word that this package came from some outsider.

Greene, shithole and Rudy yesterday said there is an assassinated plot by Dems and this happened.

Makes me wonder what the high up GQP are plotting themselves while gaslighting.

Who gives a flying hootie hoo. Figure it out and tell us later. The suspense, frankly, is putting me to sleep.
