The Secret Service has intercepted a suspicious package addressed to former President Obama in Washington, D.C.
The Secret Service said in a statement that the package, and another sent to the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York, were identified as potential explosive devices and appropriately handled as such.
The statement said that the Obamas and Clintons did not receive the packages, and were not at risk of receiving them.
The package sent to the Clintons was reported earlier Wednesday and was intercepted late Tuesday night, according to the Secret Service.
"The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such," the Secret Service said in a statement. "The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them."
The Secret Service said it had initiated "a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible."
NBC New York reported that the package sent to the Clintons is similar to the explosive device found at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros on Monday.
The Secret Service statement did not mention the explosive sent to Soros.
Could be anything, but yeah.
Its only a clock..
Also the Clintons and Soros.
It began when descendent of a Holocaust survivor sought revenge against Soros, a shameless NAZI collaborator. [At least I assume it was.]
Now are these other clowns jealous of the attention?
Suspicious package containing Choom?
Stinks to high heaven.
I bet they weren’t even real.
They want the sympathy vote.
Their ‘bomb’ will backfire..................
This hoax false flag is the Dems October Suprise.
If not. What a freaking idiot! Just when America is realizing what a bunch of dangerous kooks there are on the left this happens.
Meanwhile, republicans receive tons of ‘suspicious packages’ and the MSM reports nothing.
Theres nothing suspicious about it...
its Obamas monthly Fentanyl shipment from Mexico...
I am PROUD of our side’s restraint for the past quarter century. After all the tyranny and thuggery — we have been CIVIL.
If someone had snapped, I am still proud of our long record of restraint when confronted by MOBS.
Some Democratic lunatic... Trying to coddle sympathy for some of the most pathetic people on planet earth. I can hardly wait for them to catch the SOB and expose their sad charade.
As I said on the Clinton thread, this is not the MO for conservatives. We enact change at the ballot box or if necessary the cartridge box. It is typical for the left to try to send bombs through mail because they have no problems with scaring people into compliance or killing them if the person disagrees with them.
Reichstag fire is a tool I would not put past the left.
Yep! Anything to get the TDS crowd out to vote since O & H can scantly fill 2K seats on their own.
Early Christmas present from Clock Boy???
Comey and his pals are busy today, three false flags in 24 hours, might be a Record.
I’m surprised they didn’t immediately recognize the un-marked, plain packaged “Dildo of the Month Club” delivery.
