Update at 8:04 pm: The Secret Service says it intercepted two bombs — one addressed to Barack Obama and one to Hillary Clinton — in the last 24 hours. CNN's New York headquarters was also evacuated Wednesday morning after reports of a suspicious device
A bomb was found near the home of Hillary and Bill Clinton in upstate New York on Wednesday, as per reports. The suspicious device is reportedly similar to a bomb with explosive powder planted in a mailbox at the home of George Soros, who also lives in Westchester County.
The FBI, Secret Service and local cops reportedly discovered a suspicious package near the former First Couple's residence in Chappaqua at around 1 am on Wednesday morning. Law enforcement sources described it as an improvised explosive device (IED). More details are awaited.
As Bill and Hillary Clinton have each held some of the highest offices in the country, and with Bill Clinton's status as a former President making him a lifetime-Secret Service protectee, the pair are always under surveillance.
Hillary Clinton has recently made a number of media appearances ahead of the high-stakes mid-term elections in which the Democrats will aim to take the house and Senate back from the Republicans. In those appearances, however, she has remained tight-lipped on another Presidential run in 2020.
The former US Secretary of State had narrowly lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 elections, having won the popular vote.
