Already this morning it was reported that an explosive device was found at the Clinton residence. We now know that package was addressed to Hillary Clinton. Another device has been discovered, sent to the office of former President Barack Obama. An explosive device was also sent to the home of billionaire George Soros, making three, each described as an IED, discovered in the last 48 hours approximately.
The Secret Service has released a statement saying that neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton received the packages personally, nor were they in danger of receiving them because of the protocols in place.
The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the statement said. “The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.”
The “pipe bomb” sent to Soros was found at his home and came through his mail, not far from the Clintons home, where the package was addressed to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The Secret Service is investigating all three incidents and we’ll update as that information becomes available.
