The US Attorney is taking this very seriously.
The US Capitol Police had to evacuate the building this morning after a credible bomb threat was delivered to Congressman Trey Gowdy’s office. After an hour and tens of thousands of wasted dollars, a box marked “ACME Explosives” was found that contained nothing but a stuffed Wile. E. Coyote plush.
Authorities figured out the source of the prank when Alec Baldwin, liberal troublemaker, and horrible actor, tweeted a picture of Gowdy with the caption “The Roadrunner.” Matt Kimball, director of operations for the DC bomb squad, called the prank “egregious” and assured the public that Baldwin would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
A spokesman for Baldwin said that the tweet went out after the box was found and that Gowdy was using him as a scapegoat:
Alec Baldwin has better things to do than make Trey Gowdy look foolish. Trey Gowdy does a great job of that all by himself. He has, however, made all of his emails available for Gowdy’s committee to twist into something they’re not.
The US Attorney says the office is weighing the evidence and taking the case very seriously. As soon as Baldwin can be charged, he’ll be arrested.
