Suspicious Packages Sent to Barack Obama And Hillary, Bill Clinton

Hillary Clinton and her husband former President Bill Clinton greet supporters after voting in Chappaqua N.Y. on Nov. 8 2016

The US Secret Service intercepted packages addressed to Obama at his Washington home and to Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee for president, at her home in NY state.

USSS said in a statement both were identified as "potential explosive devices and appropriately handled as such".

Suspicious packages sent to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama, as well as to CNN headquarters in New York City, were intercepted on Wednesday, law enforcement officials have confirmed.

Additionally the Secret Service has identified a package as a "potentially explosive device", which was addressed to former President Barack Obama, according to the Associated Press.

Secret Service intercepts one package sent to the Clintons' home in Chappaqua, New York, and one sent to the former president in Washington, D.C.; Mike Emanuel reports on the investigation.

Bedford police say they received a call about 3:45 p.m. Monday reporting a suspicious package.

The bomb at Soros' house was discovered on October 22 when one of Soros's employees found a suspicious package in the mailbox and opened it, finding the explosive device.

The new reports come one day after an explosive device addressed to George Soros, a frequent contributor to the Democratic Party, was found at his home in NY. The list of possible targets began with Soros, then grew to include Obama, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and former attorney general Eric Holder Jr.

The Secret Service said that it had initiated a "full scope criminal investigation".

Saudi Arabia: Khashoggi killing huge mistake
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was allegedly not aware of the operation beforehand, according to the top diplomat. The kingdom finally acknowledged his death early Saturday in what it described as a "fistfight".

The news network reported on Wednesday morning that a police bomb squad was at its offices.

A building worker in Tribeca said he found the suspicious package addressed to De Niro at 375 Greenwich Street, which houses De Niro's Tribeca Productions and his restaurant Tribeca Grill.

The FBI described the packages as manila envelopes with bubble wrap inside and with a return address from "DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ", a misspelling of the Democratic House member from Florida.

Local police and the FBI are investigating. Officials cannot yet confirm if this this package is related to the suspicious packages found in New York, Washington and Florida.

In the original packaging that contained a live explosive that was sent to CNN, there is also a white powder that is being tested, New York Police Commissioner James P. O'Neill said. But he said they did contain potentially explosive material, adding: "These are not hoax devices".

Two law enforcement officials, speaking to AP on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, said the pipe bomb at CNN was crude but operational and was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who regularly appears as a television contributor and who has publicly clashed with Trump.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also spoke out, labeling the incident "clearly an act of terror".

Liberal and left-wing critics accuse Trump's rhetoric-laden "Make America Great Again" presidency of emboldening right-wing extremists.

The White House condemned the "despicable " actions of "cowards" in a statement.
