Two pipe bombs were found at the Republican National Committee’s DC Headquarters and safely detonated by a bomb squad on Wednesday.
The Democratic National Committee is also being evacuated after a suspicious package was found nearby.
The controlled detonation took place as Trump supporting patriots stormed the Capitol building, just a few blocks away.
“The bombs were located in the back of the building, the official said, and were discovered by RNC security. Meanwhile, most of the party leadership is away in Florida for its annual winter meeting,” the Federalist reports. “The explosion was also reported by the New York Times, as thousands of Trump supporters hold the nearby Capitol complex under siege, protesting and rioting against congressional certification of the Electoral College vote formally handing President-elect Joe Biden the keys to the White House.”
The Capitol Police also shot a female Trump supporter inside the Capitol Building as people were trying to access the Senate Floor.
