In a recent development packages suspected to contain explosives have been found in mail sent to the homes of former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
According to initial reports, investigators believe the explosive sent to the Clintons is linked to the one found on Monday at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros.
The device was found at the Clintons’ residence in Chappaqua, New York, on Wednesday.
“The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the Secret Service said in a statement Wednesday.
“The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them,” the statement added.
Suspicious packages were also found in the media company CNN’s offices as well as to a few US lawmakers.
