Suspicious Packages Intercepted for the Clintons, Obama, and CNN

Suspicious Packages Intercepted for the Clintons, Obama, and CNN

Thankfully the packages never went to the intended recipients.

The US Secret Service intercepted packages sent to the homes of the Clintons in New York and President Barack Obama in Washington that contain “possible explosive devices.” The Clintons and Obama didn’t receive the packages “because of screening procedures.”

CNN then reported the NYPD has responded to a suspicious package outside at Time Warner Center in New York, the home of the network. Law enforcement also intercepted a package meant for the White House at Joint Base Bolling in DC, but now reports say “that there was no suspicious package addressed to the White House.”

*THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY. Please stay with us for more updates…


Trump addressed the attempted attacks this afternoon. He said:

“I just want to tell you that in these times, we have to unify,” Trump said at an unrelated opioid bill signing event at the White House. “We have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that threats or acts of political violence have no place in the United States of America.”

“It’s a very bipartisan statement,” he added. “This egregious conduct is abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans.”

The President noted he had just concluded a briefing with the FBI, Department of Justice, Homeland Security Department and Secret Service.

“The full weight of our government is being deployed to conduct this investigation,” Trump said. “We will spare no resources or expense in this effort.”

The President spoke from TelePrompTer but added this line at the end — not on screen in front of him:

“We are extremely angry, upset, unhappy about what we witnessed this morning, and we will get to the bottom of it,” Trump said.


During a press conference, New York Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill said the package sent to CNN “appeared to be a live explosive device” and an envelope with “white powder was also discovered as part of the original packaging.”

CNN continued:

FBI Special Agent in Charge C. Bryan Paarmann says that “so far the devices have been what appear to be pipe bombs.”

Potentially explosive devices have been mailed to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, liberal billionaire George Soros, former FBI director John Brennan and Former Attorney General Eric Holder over the past few days.


All of these updates come from CNN.

The package sent to Wasserman Schultz’s office meant for former Attorney General Eric Holder. A building in San Diego that has the San Diego Union-Tribune and an office for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) evacuated due to a package.

The NYPD has also sent out more patrols to other major newsrooms in New York City.

The White House released a statement:


The package at CNN was meant for former CIA Director John Brennan.

Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-CA) have condemned the attempted attacks today. President Donald Trump is receiving “constant updates” from officials.

The Florida office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has evacuated due to a suspicious package. From NBC Miami:

Sunrise Police said they responded to the address of the office of the Democratic rep for Florida’s 23rd congressional district. Footage showed a Broward Sheriff’s Office bomb squad unit and firefighters responding to the building.

No other information was immediately known.

*Previous reports…

The Secret Service released this statement:

Late on October 23, 2018, the Secret Service recovered a single package addressed to Former First Lady Hillary Clinton in Westchester County, New York. Early this morning, October 24, 2018, a second package addressed to the residence of Former President Barack Obama was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC.

The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such. Both packages were intercepted prior to being delivered to their intended location. The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.

The Secret Service has initiated 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.

From CNN:

NYPD is responding to a suspicious device discovered in Time Warner Center, where CNN is based, in New York, according to a law enforcement source.

CNN has evacuated its newsroom as a precaution.

An NYPD source told CNN that the package sent to Time Warner had a device “constructed with a pipe and wires” and law enforcement “are treating the device as a real explosive.”

CNN continued:

CNN has learned another suspicious package with a device addressed to the White House was intercepted at Joint Base Bolling in Washington, DC.

According to a law enforcement official, the device was similar to one sent to Soros’ home, and similar to ones sent to homes of Clintons and Obamas.

The devices appear to be rudimentary but functional.

The White House-addressed device also contained projectiles.

Another law enforcement source said “There is a strong suspicion” the two packages intercepted last night and this morning are connected to the package targeting George Soros.

George Soros received his package on Tuesday and law enforcement said they believe it “was left there by someone and was not delivered by the Postal Service.” They explained that the package contained a device “constructed from a length of pipe about six inches long filled with explosive powder, and it was ‘proactively detonated’ by bomb squad technicians.”

However, John Roberts from Fox News tweeted out that Secret Service has denied the reports that no suspicious packages were addressed to the White House.

The White House lashed out at the person or persons who sent these packages:

“We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures. These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards.”

I smell false flag

    alaskabob in reply to Obie1. | October 24, 2018 at 11:53 am

    CNN… maybe. But Clinton and Obama are of no value in this election unless the loyal supporters believe they are at risk. HRC and Bill along with The One hE been failures to stir the vote. The new “Young” faces of the Party are the drivers now.

      Connivin Caniff in reply to alaskabob. | October 24, 2018 at 3:32 pm

      I don’t know. Looking at the recipient list, it could have been a friend of Seth Rich,

      RedEchos in reply to alaskabob. | October 24, 2018 at 5:35 pm

      Why send mail bombs to people who haven’t opened their own mail in decades?

      Seriously, does anyone really believe Soros is going to walk down to his mailbox himself? Does Hillary savor the excitment of opening an unknown letter? Does Obama adore the smell of envelope glue?

    Paul In Sweden in reply to Obie1. | October 24, 2018 at 12:49 pm

    Will the culprits be caught on camera with a Hillary I’m with her shirt or just a typical Che Guevara T-Shirt? Will the FBI say that the devices were built by #GruberStupid activists and could not possibly have detonated? Will there be any truth out of the Deep State FBI prior to the mid-term elections???

    Elzorro in reply to Obie1. | October 24, 2018 at 1:17 pm

    Some leftist scheme no doubt. Nobody should buy in to this hoax.

    thalesofmiletus in reply to Obie1. | October 24, 2018 at 3:14 pm

    October “Surprise”.

    EnquiringMind in reply to Obie1. | October 24, 2018 at 5:13 pm

    Thanks for not disappointing.

    BobM in reply to Obie1. | October 25, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    When it was just the one, I kinda wondered myself.
    But with 10 (so far) it’s kinda organized for the usual Leftie false flag nutcase.

    The fact that 0 out of 10 actually exploded (so far) means it’s still possible……
    In either case, unexploded “bombs” usually contain so much evidence that whoever is behind this is being hoist by their open (unexploded) petard.

Morning Sunshine | October 24, 2018 at 11:05 am

color me cynical, but I am laying odds that these were sent by some left-wing supporter who wants to pin these on Republicans

Until I hear politicians on the right encouraging these kinds of “in your face” attacks, I will hold no shame.

LI would do well to research differences in MSM coverage of these incidents versus violent attacks on conservative leaders that has been constant and consistent over the past three years.

4th armored div | October 24, 2018 at 11:13 am

an attempt to have the – blue wave – become a tsunami

Connivin Caniff | October 24, 2018 at 11:23 am

Knowing the leftist D’Rats, it is either a false flag operation, or mislabeled shipments of sex toys.


The fad for early voting complicates these things. So when is the best time nowadays for a fake outrage? Too early, and there’s a risk voters will find out it’s fake before they vote. Too late, and too many will have voted already.

casualobserver | October 24, 2018 at 11:42 am

We now know what to expect from today until Nov 6. Wall to wall, breathless, unending coverage and stories about how dangerous Trump is and any candidate you could vote for that isn’t anti-Trump. Clips of the people shrieking at Pelosi and repeated showings of the details of this bombing, along with clips of Trump talking about the media at rallies and the crowd’s response will be on loop at every anti-Trump cable outlet. Endless loops.

No mention of Scalise. No viewing of restaurant and other public attacks on elected GOP.

And most importantly, the term MOB will now be fully acceptable for 2 weeks. Those conservative mobs are a danger to our democracy!!!! It is predicaable.

    Even if this turns out to be conducted by someone that can’t be tied to Trump or conservatives, it will still be the way the media paints the event. They will tell everyone how this all because of Trump and any vote that supports Trump means the country will get more racism, misogyny, violence, bombings, and what qualifies for real mob attacks and not what the left does. And on and on. I have never seen so much terror and panic in the media that things may not shift enough leftward. So they will not stop and any means to try and influence this next election to improve those chances.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s office has been evacuated. Who on the right thinks she’s a signiicant player any longer? I think that clinches the idea the left is doing this to themselves.

    malclave in reply to elliesmom. | October 24, 2018 at 7:13 pm

    Apparently, the packages had her office as the return address and one package addressed to Holder was undeliverable as addressed.

    Which, I guess, raises the question of how an undeliverable package would be returned on the same day other packages were delivered.

    MarkSmith in reply to elliesmom. | October 24, 2018 at 10:50 pm

    As crazy as things are, would not be surprised if the packages “DID” come from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’.

    It would be too funny if they had Bill Clinton dressed in his Octoberfest outfit planting the bombs.

    Avenatti? Next guess. Maybe we need to start a pool. Weiner? I would put my bets on the SDNY FBI office.

Yeah, FBN is pretending to take this seriously, too.

4th armored div | October 24, 2018 at 11:56 am

2018 meets 1920s.

There is a video floating around that proves the Pelosi thing was staged / false flag.

Remember the anthrax scare a few years ago? The Post Office routinely sterilizes ALL letters.

Definitely false flags.

Even if one of these infernal devices worked and hit its target, that wouldn’t implicate any reactionary extremists. It would more likely mean that Hillary is hot to run again, and the Clinton conspiracy is clearing out some D’rat roadblocks. Although, to be fair, Arkancide to date has been dominated by air accidents, railroad tracks, or suicide by hanging/jumping/multiple gunshots, and not explosives. But maybe Hillary is an old dog who can learn some new tricks.

    txvet2 in reply to tom_swift. | October 24, 2018 at 12:46 pm

    Naturally the Clintons have people to handle things like this, so they only have to ID the target and probably don’t even know the details of any particular operation.

buckeyeminuteman | October 24, 2018 at 12:00 pm

Hillary was treated unfairly didn’t work
Trump is mean didn’t work
Trump – Russia collusion isn’t working
Stormy Daniels didn’t work
Kavanaugh is a rapist didn’t work
Now they’re sending their own side fake bombs in the hopes it will be pinned on nasty, violent Republicans. This is going to blow up in their faces (pun intended) before 6 Nov.

I know very little about pipe bombs. I read that the one in the Soros mailbox was discovered and safely moved to the woods by an employee. It didn’t explode. Nor did any of these new ones. Can they tell if these were competently-designed bombs, or is this for show, to generate sympathy for leftists?

    tom_swift in reply to tarheelkate. | October 24, 2018 at 12:20 pm

    The Soros one was conveniently destroyed, so it can’t be examined.

      The Packetman in reply to tom_swift. | October 24, 2018 at 1:50 pm


      The ‘authorities’ claim that the device contained explosive powder but to find that out, one would have to dismantle the bomb, which also happens to render it mostly harmless.

    1A_Rules in reply to tarheelkate. | October 24, 2018 at 12:35 pm

    Not one of them has detonated by design. That might be significant.

    According to a EOD expert twitter @thomasbsauer, pipe bombs don’t have wires at both ends, timers/remote devices can be way smaller than pictured and placed inside the bomb body, and in his opinion these were made by an amateur who wanted to make sure his “bombs” looked like bombs.

    IMO they were “potential” bombs with real explosive material inside (gunpowder?) but no feasible way to set them off.

Whoever did it, and for whatever reason, they should be caught and punished appropriately, and condemned by all good Americans.

    alaskabob in reply to Immolate. | October 24, 2018 at 12:31 pm

    On!y will happen if Congress stays in Republican hands….I doubt Dems will out their new generation weatherman if they win. Frankly, HRC and O have “bombed” on the campaign trail this year.

    txvet2 in reply to Immolate. | October 24, 2018 at 12:50 pm

    Only if it’s actually somebody at least nominally on the right. If it’s a Democrat, it’s just considered hardball politics.

So far I’m thinking of it like hate crimes. If it weren’t for the fake hate crimes, there wouldn’t be any.

I am going to hold onto my suspicions as only that until they identify who’s sending these things. If it’s a real effort to blow people up, even repulsive people, I hope the sender is caught soon and sent to prison.

    1A_Rules in reply to tarheelkate. | October 24, 2018 at 12:43 pm

    Zero chance that once the perp or perps are identified that the actions to indict and prosecute aren’t swift and full force. If it turns out to be someone that can be tied to the right the leaky sieve that is the FBI will give the media everything needed for it to be tried in public. No escape.

    If anybody else, this administration will want to make it an example.

More duds from the people who brought us Christine Blasé Ford.

I’m currently in DC… is on the news every 10 minutes. Of course it is a false flag, consider the timing

It’s easy to see that only a Democrat would think anybody on the target list was important enough to take out. Hillary can barely breath on her own, her adopted pervert husband isn’t in touch with the world and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz? Really?

Obama is a guy who will never hold power again, why waste the bomb? Eric Holder — this is just silly. And none of the bombs went off, only one or two was actually delivered, but who in their right mind would send timer bombs in the mail?

Nope, this is false flag all the way; planned by somebody who thinks like a Democrat targeting people only a Democrat would think was important.

    Disco Stu_ in reply to stablesort. | October 24, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    Particularly suspicious if these are established as fake but “explosive-appearing” devices (on TV, anyway), the perps knowing no risk of actual harm to any Democrat.

Just to play Devil’s Advocate:

Maybe the bombs were sent to those the bomber thought were worthless, evil people who didn’t deserve to live? Maybe it has nothing to do with politics or the upcoming election per se? It doesn’t take any great stretch of the imagination to believe this.

CaliforniaJimbo | October 24, 2018 at 1:44 pm

If you were a bomber and wanted to 100% get your package discovered before being delivered, you send it via usps to ex presidents who have SS protection.
The guy who doesn’t get his mail screened (Soros) gets his dropped off at the gate. That makes it almost certain the help would get it or report it.
This is very suspicious.

Let’s ban pipes. It’s for the children.

If someone were going to do something like this, why send these devices to has-beens like HRC, BHO, Brennan (at the wrong network), DWS (aka ramen-head) and Holder? Also, why on Earth send these devices to people who do not check their own mail? Can anyone actually envisions HRC or Soros waddling out to their upscale neighborhood mailboxes to pick up the fliers? It really does have a false flag aroma, but I’m willing to be wrong on that.

Cynic that the MSM has made me, if someone really intended to bomb CNN, why wouldn’t they use a fertilizer bomb in a rental van/truck? That angry Nichols and McVeigh profile type is a good fit with the ‘Trump NAZI/White Supremacist’ stereotype the media peddles so often – and God knows Demns never have an original thought – hence the Justice Thomas treatment of Kavanaugh. Pipe bombs seem like the type of thing someone who watched a lot of Boris and Natasha would do …

Who would gain by sending visually obvious “bombs” to dem recipients who haven’t opened their own mail for decades?

    oldgoat36 in reply to Sian. | October 24, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    Seeing how the left is operating these days, it is certainly quite possible that these devices were meant to be found, and the addressees being the who’s who of the Democrats, I wouldn’t find it hard to believe this was done simply to shift the mob and violence onto the right.

    The way the left operated with Kavanaugh has me far too easily persuaded that they will do anything to push their way to power, even if it means putting their has been icons at some small risk. Obama being martyred would be of benefit to them, lesser for Hillary, but still with the sympathetic vote, I can see this as a win for them.

    Given that above, sure a right wing person could go off the deep end, and given the hate these characters have spewed on the right for years, it could happen. But why now? They aren’t in power. Other than Holder and Hillary, who seem a long shot at running successfully in 2 years for the nomination, they just seem like very stupid targets.

    False flag seems more likely, but crazy knows no political limits.

Hillary 2020: Pay Attention To MEEEEEEEEEE

Socialists are front running the Democrats as violence erupts in our streets. History repeats itself…

As several readers have pointed out, this smells like a false flag operation. It’s too stupid, this close to the election, to even be irrational. And it moves the needle away from Trump’s recent positives.

Sounds more like one of those “Moslem hate crimes” than anything else under the sun.

Time will tell.

I will simply point out that the package bombs have completely displaced the caravan in the news.

    So what did he know, and when did he know it? Mr. Branco drawing bombs at the border..hmmmmmmm

    The illegal invasion force backfired (as always) and was turning into a huge anchor around the democrats necks. To knock that story out of the cycle, fake bombs to that miscreant cast sounds exactly like something out of the democrat playbook. This is the same group who attempted a coup against President Donald J. Trump. For the democrats, the stakes in this election could not be higher. Their relevance as a party is at stake, and we know they lie, cheat, steal and even break the law to win.

    The left has done a magnificent job of exploiting the fecklessness of the GOPe, and in doing so, have entirely usurped our education and media systems.

    We, on the other hand, have been contemptible in our tolerance of the Crying Boehners, and we’ve reaped what we’ve sown.

    The election of DJT – and the midterms – are our FINAL chance to rescue our way of life.

One thing we can all agree on, and which every blue-checked Twitter tweet I’ve seen so far has said, is that the person or persons who did this need to be caught, prosecuted, and put into prison.


The media will blame the Republicans for the next two weeks then AFTER election day we will find out the bomber is an Antifa anarchist, but the media won’t care.

    amwick in reply to Gersh204. | October 24, 2018 at 3:31 pm

    Good points, but I think that MSM does care, they care very much. They hate President Trump, they want him gone… There is too much $ at stake. I keep wondering if the wingnut leftists could be this stupid. Dumb question.

As to who sent these things, who knows? However, whatever they were, they were not functional explosive devices.

Explosive devices need three things; a main charge, a detonating charge and a device to control detonation. While these devices may have a main charge [which may be a low order explosive, like gunpowder, which does not need a detonating charge], they do not seem to have any means of accurately controlling the detonation [they do not appear to have a detonator]. They appear to be designed to be detected and have sufficient bomb characteristics to be reported to be “bombs”, not to be detonated. We will have a better idea who sent these devices and for what purposes, when the authorities catch up with whoever is responsible.

Until then, I wouldn’t be in any hurry to come to a conclusion as to who was responsible or the motives behind the incidents. Though the timing is certainly suspicious.

    Some hollywood idiot was probably in charge of the design.

    You are 100% correct: these were not designed to explode.

    Q: So how could the people behind this be so brazen, and feel they can get away with this scam?

    A: Jeff Sessions.

    joe.butin in reply to Mac45. | October 24, 2018 at 8:45 pm

    Agreed. Absent a viable detonation mechanism, regardless what’s inside the pipe, they’re basically scary-looking paperweights.

    MajorWood in reply to Mac45. | October 25, 2018 at 11:08 am

    My car has a full tank of gas and a clock on the dash. Is that enough for the MSM to call it a bomb? Were it newer and had GPS, they could call it a guided missile. That would be consistent with the “too close for missiles, switching to guns” rear plate surround. For some reason no one tailgates me.

Richard Jewell was unavailable for comment.

“Suspicious???” Yes, indeed… only 13 days to the mid-terms…
Give me a break!

CaliforniaJimbo | October 24, 2018 at 4:51 pm

Looking at the picture of the CNN device and envelope, why aren’t the postage stamps cancelled?

First, everyone knows that there is zero chance any of the people open the mail and the CNN employee that opens packages is the absolute bottom of the totem pole. Nobody is going to send a package like that. Second, not one went off. None of them exploded. They are either incompetent or dummy bombs. Third, who does this help? The democrats. Finally, there are paid trolls on every single thread I’ve seen making their first appearance on any forum or blog poo-pooing the idea of a ‘false flag’. Even little Benji is on the ‘false flag is deranged’ train. If you got the approved opposition saying it. Believe that’s what they have done.

    CDR D in reply to forksdad. | October 24, 2018 at 6:04 pm

    Yes… Cui bono? Only the leftard rats who have tried just about everything else.

    I sure hope Trump goes full Sulla on these filthy bastards after they’ve finally expended all their ammo.

CaliforniaJimbo | October 24, 2018 at 6:17 pm

But twitter ignored the tweet of the Gay man and Booker’s “suspicious package”.
Not all packages are created equal

I am going to guess Antifa. Clearly coordinated, the dummy bombs were wiped clean of prints and DNA. Note that none of the bombs had a trigger and I didn’t see a detonator, although the wiring implied it was in the C4.

If non exploding bombs don’t get the job done, next time will be exploding ones. As per Pelosi there cmifht be collateral damage.

    MajorWood in reply to bobinreverse. | October 25, 2018 at 11:22 am

    But they exploded all over the airwaves, and that was the intended target. But realizing their mistakes with these devices, the next ones will pure 100% pure CGI. And they will be emailed to bypass the guards at the gate.

Nobody has noted the recent pattern

Pelosi gets “mobbed”

On Monday, Biden and several in the media were repeating the exact same Talking Point after the Texas rally about how dangerous Trumps rhetoric has been and saying that he is inciting violence

And then, right on cue….

thalesofmiletus | October 24, 2018 at 7:46 pm

…John Brennan…

Well, now we have a good idea who mailed these to himself and others.

I’m trying to figure out how these people were chosen. This is not a list of “high value targets.” Except for Soros, it’s a list of has-beens. Yesterday’s news.

Wondering if the criminal behind this just got out of about a 10 year stint in prison? Or more likely, 10 years or more involuntarily committed to a mental health treatment facility.

    randian in reply to irv. | October 24, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    They were chosen for their newsworthiness, not their value. These targets are guaranteed to get maximum press, not because, if these were real bombs, killing them would have a meaningful effect on governance.

    Apparently the Soros organization conveniently happens to have a bomb expert on staff or the Soros organization knew it was a false flag operation. It makes no sense for them to dispose of the “bomb” themselves rather than let police experts do it unless they’re destroying evidence.

    MarkSmith in reply to irv. | October 24, 2018 at 10:57 pm

    I had a poly-sci class in college that said that getting your name out there was more important that what the message was.

Interesting to note:
ℕ????????ℕ ℝ???????????????????? · @NeonRevolt · PRO · 4 hours ago on Gab

Never, NEVER underestimate the power of #WeaponizedAutism.

So, by now you’ve heard that none of the “bombs” delivered to Dems today actually worked.

Turns out, #Anons were able to locate the actual make and model of the clock taped to one of the bombs.


It doesn’t even have an alarm function.

In other words, it can’t count down to anything. It’s literally just to make a “scary-looking” bomb prop.

If that doesn’t REEEEEEK of desperation, idk what does.

Pull the other one.

D’s taking flak for mob violence, supporting the “antifa” terrorists, the “BLM” terrorists, attacking R candidates and campaign workers, and funding/organizing the “caravan” army of economic migrants and terrorists to invade our southern border.

Also getting hit for the fact that their leadership, both the elected kind and those that anchor/guest on liberal TV shows, are openly advocating violence.

That’s a whole lot of bad press all related to violence.

So, stage a phony “attack” on their own people – do it anonymously and make sure its done in a way that there’s zero chance anyone could possibly get hurt.

Instant narrative change!!


Now, its the R’s that are violent, and its all Trump’s fault!!

This stinks like Hillary’s rotten corpse.

If they ever find out who’s behind this, I’d bet my life savings it turns out to be a liberal activist from a Soros funded group.

Once again, the Church Lady’s voice rings out amidst the reports: “Isn’t that convenient?” You’can hear it above din of accusations from the left and fake media. You’ll notice that of all the targets, only Former Attorney-General Eric Holder and former First Lady Michelle Obama are politically relevant: Everyone else is a politically washed-up, has been, with the same level of political irrelevance.

Nobody is asking the most obvious question:

Why are the Clintons getting Secret Service protection?

Billy Boy’s 10-year USSS protection expired a long time ago.

The Queen of Benghazi does not qualify for USSS protection.

So why are taxpayers paying to protect the Clintons?

The 1994 law limiting post-presidential protection to 10 years applies to presidents inaugurated after January 1, 1997 (Pub.L. 103-329). WJC and HRC are entitled to lifetime USSS protection.
