The Republican National Committee’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., was briefly locked down on Wednesday (May 22) morning. The U.S. Capitol Police said that a hazardous materials team was dispatched to the building after employees reported a suspicious package addressed to former President Donald Trump.

Brianna Burch, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Capitol Police, said the package contained two vials of blood, a Korean-language bible, and leaking ice packs.

Burch did not provide any details about who sent the package or where it originated from. She said that the incident remains under investigation.

The lockdown was lifted, and the all-clear was given just before 10 a.m.

“We are thankful to law enforcement, who responded quickly and ensured everyone’s safety. The lockdown has been cleared, and staff has resumed their office duties because we remain unintimidated and undeterred in our efforts to elect President Trump to the White House,” RNC Chairman Michael Whatley said in a statement.
