Suspicious package found at Capitol before Amy Coney Barrett vote

WASHINGTON — A suspicious package has been found at the US Capitol less than an hour before Senators vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday evening, according to a report.
United States Capitol Police are investigating the package which was found on the grounds on the Capitol near the Supreme Court, according to a tweet from Fox 5 DC reporter Van Applegate.
Demonstrations against the confirmation of President Trump’s conservative pick for the court are also taking place outside Congress as lawmakers gather to confirm Barrett.
The mom of seven is all but guaranteed a confirmation by the Republican-held Senate just 8 days before the presidential election.
