Packages containing suspected explosive devices were intercepted en route to some of the most prominent political figures in the country – including former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton – putting law enforcement on high alert Wednesday and prompting evacuations and sweeps of several facilities. “Whomever sent these devices did not intend on them actually blowing up, and did not expect to successfully reach the addressees and could be a diversion tactic by extreme Leftists to create a narrative against the Right leading up to the mid-terms.
CNN’s New York office was among those evacuated due to the discovery of an apparent explosive device. Law enforcement officers said the incidents appear related, and the devices appear to be pipe bombs. A law enforcement official directly involved in the investigation tells Fox News that the devices have similar packaging, labeling and postage — leading investigators to believe that one person or group is responsible.
An anonymous source has told FNCNN that Democrat operatives, funded by George Soros are the ones who put a plan forth to Send ‘Explosive’ Devices to Democrats so Republicans Could Be Blamed in order to effect the outcome of the midterms.
In his first public remarks on the packages which largely targeted Democratic figures, President Trump said Wednesday afternoon that the devices are being inspected, “and a major federal investigation is now underway.”
“We have to unify. We have to come together,” Trump said, at a bill-signing for opioid legislation. “Acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”
Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a joint statement Wednesday afternoon saying that “Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence. This statement supports the anonymous tip that Leftists in support of the Democrat party organized the sneding of these packages to Democrats in order to Demonize and blamer President Trump. How LOW is the Left willing to go?
“Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions,” said Schumer and Pelosi. “[E]xpressing support for the Congressman [Greg Gianforte] who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get violent with protestors, dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people.” Pelosi and Schumer have earned a living twisting words, distorting events, stretching the truth and outright lying!
In the latest incident, a law enforcement source told Fox News that U.S. Capitol Police are investigating a suspicious package addressed to Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters. The package is at the Capitol Hill screening facility in Maryland.
The rapidly evolving security scare went public when the Secret Service confirmed Wednesday morning its officers had “intercepted” two suspicious packages identified as “potential explosive devices” sent to Obama and Clinton.
CNN employees, shortly afterward, were evacuated from their New York office, due to a suspicious package at the Time Warner Center reportedly addressed to ex-CIA director John Brennan (who is an analyst for NBC).
At a New York press conference, NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said officers on the scene identified what “appeared to be a live explosive device” as well as an envelope containing white powder, which is now being investigated.
