Democrats Hillary Clinton, Obama, and others targeted with pipe bombs

Nine pipe bombs en route to high-level Democrats and one left-wing press agency were intercepted by authorities without incident in fours states.

The crude explosive devices were sent to George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Hollywood actor Robert De Niro, former CIA Director John Brennan, and even CNN.

On Wednesday CNN Tweeted:

This is the suspicious package received this morning at the Time Warner Center, which houses the CNN New York bureau.

Police say the package appeared to be a “live explosive device.” It has now been removed and taken to a NYPD facility in the Bronx.

Authorities say a device intended for Eric Holder was discovered inside the offices of Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz after it was forwarded due to address error on the package.

“The bombs, each with a small battery, were about six inches long and packed with powder and broken glass, said a law enforcement official who viewed X-ray images and spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation,” as AP reports.

From the AP: “Law enforcement officials said all the packages were similar: manila envelopes with bubble-wrap interior bearing six stamps and the return address of Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”

The White House condemned the attacks in which Democratic adversaries were targeted.

“Acts or threats of political violence have no place in the United States,” President Trump said. “This egregious conduct is abhorrent.”

None of the devices detonated and it is currently unknown if the devices were authentic.

Secret Service and federal agents are investigating the pattern and the recovered devices to determine their origin.
