The office of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., received a package with a “suspicious substance” on Tuesday, but law enforcement confirmed the substance is not hazardous.

Omar tweeted that her office received the package and a threat reading, in part, “The Patriarchy will rise again.'"

"Everyone on our team is okay. We reported the package to Capitol Police and they determined it to be safe," the Democratic lawmaker added.

Omar later tweeted that "They can send the threatening emails, phone calls and packages to distract us but nothing will ever slow us down as we serve the people of #MN5," referencing her Minnesota congressional district.
