The White House on Tuesday was placed on lockdown as investigators scoured the grounds and searched the contents of a package deemed suspicious.
Secret Service agents found the package near White House grounds. But they didn’t release much more information, except to say they were investigating.
A tweet sent out from the agency mid-morning made clear nearby roads were closed to travelers.

President Donald Trump’s administration has been one of the most viciously protested in recent decades.
From Black Lives Matter to anti-Trumpers, to even those in the Democratic Party serving in high offices, calls to impeach Trump — or harm him or his family — have grown increasingly louder.
Hollywood celebrities, rappers and wannabes have jumped on the bandwagon. Snoop Dogg, for instance, cut a video showing a gun pointed at a Trump head, assassination style.
The mainstream media, meanwhile, frequently paints Trump as the cause of these calls for violence and upset, saying that if the president wasn’t so misogynist, racist, bigoted and so forth, people wouldn’t be so upset — a seeming shrug of shoulders that paints the victim as deserving of the attacks.
On top of that, the calls for violence against the president have led to some shaky situations.
From the Hill:
“The lockdown comes after a series of security breaches, including a man who allegedly jumped the fence earlier this month. The man reportedly spent around 15 minutes on the White House grounds before being apprehended.
“Another woman was arrested last week on her third attempt to hop over the fence.”
