Emily Miller, editor of The Washington Times' opinion section, Tweeted a picture of a blocked-off hallway outside Rep. Anthony Weiner's Washington, D.C. office. Authorities say a suspicious package has been found there. The Hill has more:
The Capitol Police blocked off pedestrian traffic surrounding Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-N.Y.) congressional office Thursday as they investigated a suspicious package.
“It’s still under investigation,” Makema Turner, spokeswoman for the Capitol Police, told The Hill of the package found around 1 p.m. Thursday at Weiner’s office in the Rayburn House building. The area was reopened to traffic at 1:30 p.m.
Below, find the image of the blocked hallway that Miller sent out earlier this afternoon:
Weiner is expected to resign later this afternoon. Stay tuned for details on this developing story.
UPDATE: The suspicious package appears to have been a box of CD cases. Miller just Tweeted, "Capitol police spokesman says #Weiner's office has been cleared of the suspicious package. (Just in time for resignation!)"
