Business Insider is reporting that the Secret Service confirmed that explosive device packages were intercepted addressed to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as well as George Soros.
Earlier reports by CNN that another pipe bomb was sent to the White House have been debunked, but many people wonder who could have done such a thing. Violence is typically resorted to by liberals, like the congressional shooter.
Apparently, all of the packages show Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the sender. Wassserman Shultz is the former Democratic National Committee chairwoman and person closely connected to the congress hacking story.
According to reports, there was a bomb scare at Schultz’s Florida office today too, “when another suspicious package, meant for former Attorney General Eric Holder, was returned to sender because it had an invalid address.”
“Sunrise Police spokesman Chris Piper told the Sun-Sentinel that the office was evacuated and a bomb squad dispatched to the scene.”
Two law-enforcement officials told The New York Times that the devices sent to Clinton and Obama resemble one discovered Monday at billionaire currency manipulator and prominent democrat donor George Soros’ home in Bedford, NY.
According to officials, that package also listed Schultz as the sender, but investigators believe it was hand-delivered.
“Bedford is less than 10 miles from the town of Chappaqua, where Bill and Hillary Clinton have their main residence.”
The Secret Service said in a statement that the first package was addressed to Hillary Clinton and was recovered yesterday night.
“The statement did not specify whether the package was intercepted at the Clinton home or at an off-site sorting facility.” Clinton was in Florida campaigning, but Bill was at home, according to the Associated Press.
The Obama package was intercepted this morning.
“The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the Secret Service said. “The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.”
The statement added, “The Secret Service has 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.”
This morning, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the bomb plantings “despicable.”
“We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures,” Sanders added. “These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards.”
At this time, no one has claimed responsibility for the mailings.
Until more evidence has been released, Americans will wonder who would do such a thing.
