Suspected Bombs Sent to Obama and Clinton Homes, CNN New York Building Evacuated


The Secret Service has said that “potential explosive devices” were addressed to former President Barack Obama and ex-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The Time Warner Center building in New York City on Wednesday was evacuated following a report of a suspicious package. CNN’s New York bureau is based in the building.

The Secret Service did not mention the report of a suspicious package sent to the White House in its statement. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also did not directly mention the package reportedly sent to the White House in a statement Wednesday condemning the “violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures.”

The packages sent to the Obama, Soros, and Clinton addresses have a number of similarities, according to NBC News. They devices were contained in manila packages, and the signature on the devices, their components or packaging is almost exactly the same. The packages also have a return address the belonging to a prominent Democratic Party official.
