Following the reports this morning of explosive devices sent to the office of former President Barack Obama and addressed to Hillary Clinton at her residence with her husband former President Bill Clinton in New York, several prominent Republicans made statements condemning the acts.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued the President’s statement, and her own, but individual Republicans have been adding theirs on Twitter.

Among those were the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Tim Scott (R-SC), and Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).

Perhaps most poignant or pertinent were comments by Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) who last year was shot and severely injured when a supporter of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders opened fire on a Republican softball game in a politically motivated attempt to assassinate GOP officials.

Senator Rand Paul, who was brutally attacked at his own home by a Democrat neighbor last year, weighed in yesterday on the pipe bomb reportedly found at the home of billionaire Democrat donor George Soros.
