An improvised explosive device was found in Hillary and Bill Clinton’s mailbox around 1:00 Wednesday morning, according to reports from NY1 and the New York Times.
An explosive device was found on Wednesday morning by a technician who screens mail for Bill and Hillary Clinton, who live in a suburb of New York City, a law enforcement official said.
The device was reportedly similar to the one found in billionaire investor and political donor George Soros’ mailbox on Monday. Both houses are in suburban New York, and both the Clintons and Soros are frequent targets of right-wing conspiracy theories and rage.
But sure, Republicans, keep talking about that angry mob of Democrats.
According to a statement from the Secret Service, the packages were addressed to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and “were immediately identified during routine mail screening as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such. The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.” The Secret Service is conducting a “full scope criminal investigation.”
The Time Warner building in New York, where CNN has its studios, has evacuated because of a "suspicious device."
