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.
Also I will state what others will not, The Libs started down this road with 'get in their face', 'if they bring a knife, we bring a gun', We kick em,, 'Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up'.
So I do not support either the Democrat rhetoric or other person's actions which may cause others harm. But once some go down that road where did they thing we would end up. As a leader, you need to set an example, not call for assault of those your do not agree with politically.
I suspect someone sent Obama a true coppy of his real birth certificate. That would be really explosive.
Next, the Democrat media will breathlessly ALERT us that all of the BOMBS had the same return address: “President Donald J. Trump, The White House”.
We will know if it was done by a leftist if all his social media is magically scrubbed.
I can't believe how wholeheartedly even Faux News is sucking the BS up!!!!!
It works well.
My first thought was Obama sent it to himself as a hoax.
We have been around the libtarded for decades.
Of course, we all know that Michelle, Barack, Hill and Bill go out to their mailbox every day to bring in their mail.
My guess: Sent by a democrat, hoping to put the blame on Trump supporters.
Was the return address on each package?
Platz der Republik 1, 11011 Berlin, Germany
My first guess is that it’s most likely one of their own hoping to make it look like it’s the other side. After all they were receiving lots of negative press and now they will be hoping for the sympathy vote.
Thinking the same thing. Hoax!
Mob Dems up to their dirty tricks....
