Breaking: Suspected bombs sent to Obama, Clinton homes, CNN studio

Suspected explosive devices were sent to former president Barack Obama, defeated presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and to a building housing CNN’s New York bureau Wednesday, officials confirmed Wednesday.

Officials said investigators believe the devices discovered near the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York, the Obamas’ home in Washington, and the CNN office in New York were linked to one found Monday at the compound of liberal billionaire George Soros.

Officials said the CNN bomb was crude but operational and was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who appears on air on other broadcast and cable outlets.

The office was alerted to the presence of the bomb during a live broadcast, with anchors evacuating as a fire alarm rang in the background.

An official earlier said one of the packages had the return address of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, an ironic reference to the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

The package addressed to Obama was intercepted Wednesday by Secret Service agents in Washington.
Neither Clinton nor Obama received the packages, and neither was at risk of receiving them because of screening procedures, the Secret Service said in a statement.

The precise contents of the suspicious packages sent to Clinton and Obama were not immediately clear. There has been no claim of responsibility and no one was yet thought to have been arrested.
