Hillary and Bill Clinton were targeted by a bomber who sent a “functional explosive device” to their home in Westchester County in New York State early Wednesday, according to multiple reports in U.S. media. The bomb was discovered late Tuesday by a Secret Service employee who screens mail for Clinton.

The Chappaqua New Castle Police Department said in a statement that the local enforcement officials “assisted the FBI, Secret Service and the West Chester Police with the investigation of a suspicious package.”


Officials said the explosive was linked to that which was found Monday at the home of billionaire George Soros in Katonah.

A second explosive addressed to former U.S. President Barack Obama was intercepted in Washington DC, according to a statement issued by the Secret Service.

The Secret Service said it “intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service protectees,” identified as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Both the Secret Service and the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the FBI are investigating.

A third suspicious package was also reported at the New York City offices of Cable News Network (CNN) at the Time Warner building. The entire complex, which houses a shopping mall, restaurants and other offices, was evacuated, as were adjacent buildings as well.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders condemned the attacks. “These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” Sanders said in a statement. “The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate action to protect anyone threatened by these cowards.”
