The US Secret Service has revealed that they have caught two suspicious packages which sent to former US President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton with explosive devices put inside them.
Two days ago, a pipe bomb also discovered at the mailbox of George Soros residence in New York City. The technicians, who deployed to screen mail delivered to former officials, found the explosive devices.
The Time Warner building in New York has also emptied because of a package. Meanwhile CNN also immediately evacuated its newsroom in the same building.
CNN president Jeff Zucker has confirmed the package delivery and evacuation. He further stated that after receiving a suspicious package in building’s mailroom, they emptied the building as a caution.
Mr. Zucker has ordered all CNN offices to deeply search their buildings “out of a complete abundance of caution”.
The US Secret Service stated that a package addressed to Mrs. Clinton also captured late on 23 October. The statement further revealed:
“Early this morning, October 24, 2018, a second package addressed to the residence of Former President Barack Obama was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC. Both packages were intercepted prior to being delivered to their intended location. The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.”
According to the US official, a ‘functional explosive device’ seized during a screening of mail. The package delivered to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clinton in New York.
White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders has strongly condemned these ‘attempted violent attacks’.
She stated: “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.”
Earlier this year, the eldest son of US President also received a suspicious package at his home. He wrote on Twitter: “As someone whose family has directly been the victim of these mail threats I condemn whoever did this regardless of party or ideology. This crap has to stop and I hope they end up in jail for a long time.”
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized these attempts as “an act of terror attempting to undermine our free press and leaders of this country. To all public officials, to all partisan affiliations – don’t encourage violence, don’t encourage hatred, don’t encourage attacks on media you can disagree but you have to show respect”.
Vice-President Mike Pence wrote on Twitter: “We condemn the attempted attacks against fmr Pres Obama, the Clintons, @CNN & others.” In response, US President Donald Trump retweeted: “I agree wholeheartedly!”
