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.

CNN Pipeline is providing live coverage of the scene. If you’re a subscriber, tune in.

Someone delivering a Clue to Fitzgerald, but he wouldn’t take possesion of it…

Now… the other politicians are truly concerned, because there is a CLUE loose in DC…. don’t want to catch it, it would muck up the whole Legislative process!

I don’t mean to place premature plame, er, i mean blame, but maybe Valerie was trying to get a bomb to do the job that an independent investigation just wouldn’t do…namely take out Scooter…
