RNC on ‘Biological Attack’ at HQ: ‘We Stand Firm in Our Mission’


Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Michael Whatley said the organization stands “firm” in its mission, no matter the “violent tactics” opposers throw its way, making the statement after an evacuation of the RNC headquarters in Washington, DC, due to someone sending two vials of blood to the location.

Individuals were temporarily evacuated from the RNC HQ after the vials were found, and hazardous-materials teams were called to investigate the matter. According to reports, the vials were addressed to former President Donald Trump, but the intent remains unclear, and it is not publicly known to whom the blood belongs.

Whatley released a statement after receiving an all-clear from authorities, deeming this a “biological attack” in an email blast:

Today, vials of blood were sent to RNC Headquarters in DC. 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.
