Pair of threats close parts of White House, Congress hearing

By Sofie Tatum, CNN

Washington (CNN) – A series of security threats closed portions of the White House and Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

In the middle of White House press secretary Josh Earnest’s daily briefing, officials told all reporters to evacuate the briefing room. The North Lawn of the White House was also cleared.

The Secret Service said a bomb threat had been called in to the DC Metropolitan Police Department targeting the briefing room specifically. The evacuation at the White House came just hours after U.S. Capitol Police received a bomb threat that forced the evacuation of a hearing on the TSA in the Dirksen Senate office building.

A Senate aide who was briefed by police confirmed to CNN that the first bomb threat was made targeting a specific location, which is what caused the USCP to take the threat more seriously. The aide said the caller described a device that had been placed in the Homeland Security Committee offices on the third floor of the Dirksen building. Authorities say it is still unclear if this call was related to the evacuation that occurred later in the afternoon at the White House.

Earnest said President Barack Obama who was in the White House at the time, was not moved during the evacuation.

“I have complete confidence in the professionalism of the men and women of the secret service to make judgments about what’s necessary to keep all of us safe,” Earnest told reporters during the briefing after it resumed, though it remained unclear why only part of the complex had been evacuated.

The Senate building was later given the all clear and there’s no sign of whether the two events were connected. Reporters were allowed back into the White House briefing room roughly a half hour after the evacuation began, and Earnest’s briefing resumed shortly there after.

The TSA hearing was called by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee in response to a report that was leaked revealing significant flaws in the agency’s terror-vetting process. According to a CNN report, cracks in the system included TSA failing to identify 73 active workers who had links to terrorism.

    When I first read the headline I figure the briefing room had to be evacuated because the level of BS was getting too deep

    LOL this is so obviously an inside job to disrupt the TSA hearing and to keep ED HENRY AND JONATHAN KARL from the white house spokeswhore. they got their breaking news for the day.

          Shill, your genuinely ignorant , get out of that water, you are about to drown in you own “egotism”
          you have mind numbed robots that have been indoctrinated in fantasy.

          Making a comment so incendiary as the moron makes. For the record , you inserted yourself attacking me ,joining the evil advocate and what did that make you ? You just show up here then bang, you join the chorus attacking me. You are showing your lack of intelligence by throwing out labels on me and i dont remember engaging a conversation with you.

          I have not said a word to you until you start attacking me . So , if you can throw a punch to someone for no reason , you need to learn how to accept it as well . I have no problem with your assessment just as long as you apply the same standard to yourself . You made me your enemy instantly , so i will obligue. I hope that’s clear for you to understand .

        Noz, they have a big problem , They don’t comment about the written article just personal verbal attacks. They attack the messenger and not the message being posted.

        They want to pick a fight ,lack of critical thinking skills maybe , its usually the hate mongers with limited mental capabilities, who exhibit their intellectual shortcomings by getting personal, using profanities insulting others .

        I cant waste any time on a hopeless putz, Their yet to demonstrate any rationale. I am holding my breath though . They’re all attitude.

      What’s sad is a jerk like YOU that has nothing of value to offer on the topic, so all you do is belittle and attack my comments. By definition, you are a lowly, sad, worthless little troll, squeezing your zits, and building up your deflated ego with your putrid garbage.
