Obama, Clintons sent 'explosive devices' through the mail

Bombs found in mail sent to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton

The Secret Service "intercepted" two "potential explosive devices" sent to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday, as another "suspicious package" prompted the evacuation of CNN's NY offices.

The Secret Service intercepted two "potential explosive devices" sent by mail to former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

A U.S. official told the Associated Press that investigators believe the explosive that was discovered near the Clintons' home in Chappaqua, New York, is linked to one found at Soros' house.

The device was similar to the one found Monday at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros.

Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary, condemned the incidents in a tweet.

United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday said the media should stop its "endless hostility" and "false attacks", hours after a suspicious package was found at the Time Warner Center in Manhattan, where news network CNN is based, AFP reported. His home, like Bill and Hillary's, is in Westchester County.

Later in the morning at a Florida fundraiser, Hillary Clinton said that "we are fine" and thanked the Secret Service for intercepting the package "long before it made its way to our home".

Manafort visited Mueller 9 times since pleading guilty
The court plans to reach a verdict on Manafort in the first trial where he is accused of Bank fraud and tax evasion. Prosecutors and Manafort's lawyers agreed that would be acceptable, and Ellis set the February 8 sentencing date.

An official in the USA said a "functional explosive device" was found at the Clinton's home in Chappaqua in the early hours of Wednesday.

The package sent to Booker was found in Florida, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said on Twitter on Friday morning.

The package sent to the Obamas was addressed to their Washington D.C. home. But they weren't the only ones to receive explosive devices in the mail! An alarm in the building went off as CNN hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto were reporting on the discovery of the device sent to White House live on the air.

In addition, the building that is home to CNN in NY was evacuated Wednesday after officials reported a similar package.

The precise contents of the suspicious packages sent to Clinton and Obama were not immediately clear.

The six-inch long pipe bomb filled with an explosive powder was "proactively detonated" by bomb squad after it was delivered to his doorstep. There has been no claim of responsibility and no one was yet thought to have been arrested.

Both Obama and Clinton were not at risk, authorities said.
