A breaking news story has just been reported on Wednesday morning. According to reports, the Secret Service has intercepted numerous packages that were sent to the Clintons and the Obamas.
The packages were said to contain potential explosive devices. At this time, officials are investigating the incident.
"The device sent to Time Warner Center was constructed with a pipe and wires, according to an NYPD source. Law enforcement authorities are treating the device as a real explosive. The device was discovered in the mailroom of Time Warner Center in New York," reported CNN on Twitter.
"The security scare comes after an explosive device was found in the mailbox of liberal billionaire George Soros, though it's unclear if any of the incidents are related. CNN employees also said Wednesday that they were being evacuated from their New York office, after reports of a suspicious package at the Time Warner Center," reported Fox News.
The potential IED's were sent to different locations and located during routine mail screening checks. The Clintons and the Obamas never actually received the packages and were in no direct danger as a result.
The White House has issued a statement from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders about the incident. Donald Trump Jr. has also spoken out on Twitter regarding the event.
“We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures. 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,” she said.
