RNC headquarters in DC given all clear over vials of blood addressed to Trump

The headquarters of the Republican National Committee was put on lockdown Wednesday morning after two vials of blood were discovered in a package addressed to former President Donald Trump.

Multiple sources confirmed to The Post that the blood was delivered to the Capitol Hill building.

The vials were addressed to Trump, one source familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. It was unclear to whom the blood belonged.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries, but a hazmat unit was called to the headquarters and RNC staff were forced to exit the building and wait outside for about an hour.

Capitol Police issued a statement confirming the contents of the package, which they said “was cleared by our Hazardous Incident Response Division.”

“The source of the package and its contents will be further investigated,” the statement added.

Multiple sources told The Post an “all clear” had been given around 9:40 a.m. and the employees were allowed to go back into the site.

Allies of the 45th president took over the party apparatus in early March after Trump became the presumptive GOP nominee. 

Michael Whatley and Lara Trump were unanimously voted in as chair and co-chair, respectively, and some employees were told they had to reapply for their jobs.

The RNC team is also being led by Trump adviser Chris LaCivita and employees in the DC headquarters have been working on site as they ramp up for the Nov. 5 election.
