WASHINGTON – The FBI’s Washington field office is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for placing suspected pipe bombs outside the RNC and DNC headquarters Wednesday afternoon.

According to the FBI, multiple law enforcement agencies received reports of a suspected pipe bomb with wires attached at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee, located at 310 First Street Southeast.

Minutes later,  a second suspected pipe bomb was reported at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at 430 South Capitol Street Southeast.

Both locations are within easy walking distance of the U.S. Capitol, which at the time was being besieged by rioters loyal to President Donald Trump.



On Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said the violence and destruction of property at the U.S. Capitol building yesterday “showed a blatant and appalling disregard for our institutions of government and the orderly administration of the democratic process.”

“As we’ve said consistently, we do not tolerate violent agitators and extremists who use the guise of First Amendment-protected activity to incite violence and wreak havoc,” Wray continued. “Such behavior betrays the values of our democracy. Make no mistake: With our partners, we will hold accountable those who participated in yesterday’s siege of the Capitol.”

The FBI is asking anyone with information concerning the pipe bombs called the agency’s  toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), or submit tips online at fbi.gov/USCapitol.


It also advises that individuals with information can also contact their local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
