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.
As always, follow the money.
In this case, the political capital.
The Midterms are turning out very well for Republicans in Absentee and Early voting.
If you are a Republican, you would not do anything to disrupt that.
So, ask yourself: Who would disruptions benefit? Who would bomb hoaxes benefit?
They must be packaging Astro-Glide in metal tubes now.
How many US Representatives with a D behind their name have been shot and near fatally wounded since Trump got elected?
Too bad the phony devices were not sent to all the illegal voters that are planning to corrupt this coming election
