News saying explosive devices found at homes for Clinton's, Obama's, and Soros'


People are losing their damn minds


Quote:
The Secret Service said Wednesday it has "intercepted" two suspicious packages sent to former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

It first emerged that the FBI was investigating one suspicious package found by the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York. But in a statement, the Secret Service said after that package addressed to Hillary Clinton was caught late Tuesday, a second package addressed to Obama "was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC" on Wednesday morning.

"The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures 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 said in its statement.

The Secret Service said it has launched a "full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.”

In New York, the New Castle Police Department and the Westchester County Police are assisting in their investigation into the first suspicious package.

“The matter is currently under federal investigation,” a spokesman for the New Castle Police Department said in a statement to Fox News.

According to The New York Times, an explosive device was found by a technician who screens mail for the Clintons.

On Monday, an explosive device also was found in the mailbox at the Bedford, New York, home of liberal billionaire George Soros.

The Times reported that the device found at the Clintons was similar to the one found at Soros’ home.

Chappaqua is approximately 20 minutes from Bedford. Both towns are approximately one hour outside of New York City.

work of a domestic terrorist... or a carefully orchestrated ploy by their own people?

Apparently no attempt to disguise the package:

When your rhetoric and actions are highly inflammatory, you have to expect that a certain percentage of our 300M+ population is going to take extreme exception.

That was my knee-jerk reaction.

The Dem's are in true due to Kavanaugh and the invasion caravan. I will not be surprised if some liberal idiot did this to change the narrative.

Yeah, and now the CNN building found one.

I'm raising the bullshit flag.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised to learn that the loony left wingers are doing this themselves, trying to get out from underneath the Democratic Mob label they have themselves earned and now bear.

They are surely going to blame this on right wingers. And since bombs would overshadow the Dem Mob tactics up until now of shouting at conservative lawmakers and conservative protesters, the media will make that contrast and ensure that it sticks in the minds of independent voters.

Here is the October Surprise. Probably.

Unless can be proved very convincingly to me I will believe this was done by progressive/commie/liberal outfits to take the heat off themselves.

and now they've told the world that mail to high profile types is screened before it gets where it is going, and they also just noted that the mailman was delivering mail to Clinton's neighbors (not screened).....well, duh, if you want to kill someone, pick a low profile type.

Anybody else think the suspicious package at CNN might just be unbiased research with facts?

Let me guess- the package came from Alabama, covered in rebel flags and had a note inside saying,"Us white Republican voters wish y'all be kilt."

It's soooo obvious a DNC orchestrated stunt; but they'll get mileage out of it since most of the major "news" outlets are on their side.

"Easily identified" = the bomb dog hit on them. I'm sure that's SOP.
