The offices of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) were evacuated Wednesday, following reports of a suspicious package, reports Local 10 News.

As city workers filed out of the building, authorities began investigating whether the threat was legitimate. It’s not clear if Wasserman Schultz was in the office.

The evacuation Wednesday morning came after explosive devices addressed to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were intercepted by the Secret Service. CNN was evacuated after the discovery of a suspicious package addressed to former CIA director John Brennan, who has been critical of president Trump.

Packages sent to George Soros, the Clintons, the Obamas and Brennan also had Schultz’s office as their return address.

Schmidt mentioned Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) during a Monday evening interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes.

The conservative commentator identified four areas of Trump's history that undermined his defense.

"When we look at the foundation of the defense that we saw here -- which is outside of the facts that I'll get to in a minute -- so the foundation is that the president was mightily concerned about corruption Ukraine," Schmidt noted. "Forgetting that this is a person who ran a fake university, ran a fraudulent charity, bilked all of his contractors out of the wages they had earned and has a record of fraud that lights the night sky."
