A DC courthouse was evacuated just over two hours ago when a “suspicious package” was found. Patrick Fitzgerald and Scooter Libby were inside the building at the time. Coincidence?
A federal courthouse within sight of the Capitol has been evacuated after a suspicious package was found near the building.
Fire alarms have sounded, and the building was cleared shortly after 9:30 a.m. as a precaution. Law enforcement officials are surveying the area around the building’s Constitution Avenue entrance.
