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.
Some disgruntled former FBI director or underling???????
This is mighty suspicious. The CommuRATS tend to overdo their schemes these days. Unexploded bombs mailed to no longer powerful tools? Dud.
I guess Maxine & Nancy will get some too, since they are visible in public discussions.
Guy on Fox News just revealed the USPS does NOT scan for explosive devices in packages.
WHAT AN IDIOT!!!!
Anyone know what happen to clock boy? Did Soros hire him???
Michelle’s Codpiece for her Halloween costume
Yep...this is all “SEE? THEY DO IT, TOO!”
Of course they ‘sent’ these to themselves.... it will dramatize their ‘victimhood’
Nothing is too low and idiotic for them... and of course if your constituents are half-wits, it will work! :)
Guaranteed a leftist did it to blame a GOP. Or a GOP is following Mad Maxine’s orders.
They probably sent it to themselves. Sorry not sorry
It depends on which team the FB I agents doing the investigating are on.
Not paying attention until its a Hertz rent-a—truck loaded with TNT and ANFO......and a clock.
It [Reichstagg fire] is long overdue. I expected obama to use it. But I suppose due to the fact Hillary was expected to win, it was shelved. Now it is being brought back out. However, at any rate, if you care for your children, loved ones, way of life,prepare for a knockdown, drag out with no holds barred, and no quarter asked or given bar room brawl. Because, however this election ends, it won’t be over. They win, they will come at us with gusto. We will be in a determined fight to save our lives, the lives of our loved ones along with our way of life. We win, we will have to fight the same fight to preserve our lives, the lives of our loved ones, and our way of life. We are rapidly approaching the last sentence of Churchill’s statement made just before or shortly after war broke out in Europe.
FoxNews just said nothing sent to WH.
Wow. That’s insane.
The timing of all this is so damned obvious!!!
The liberal leftists really are stupid people to think this will not be seen through...
Its going to be a flaming liberal
Watch Foxbusiness during the day.
Yep.. I would bet it’s a Bernie supporter.
CNN just said yes.
Didn’t he get a scholarship at MIT?
