RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
LUI: "We have breaking news for you right now. The White House, fire trucks are outside and a decontamination unit is set up there. Jim is joining me live on the phone from the White House. What are we hearing and seeing about this suspicious package here?"
MIKLASZEWSKI: "Well, we are not hearing anything. We are seeing an awful lot. The White House went down into a lockdown and maybe about 20 minutes ago. But, it was only about 15 minutes ago that fire trucks started to arrive and as you saw it just a moment ago in that picture, they had set up a portable decontamination unit."
