A suspicious package apparently containing a pipe bomb that was also addressed to the White House and intercepted. All the identified devices were very similar. They were described as “rudimentary but functional.” The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such. The security scare comes after an explosive device was found in the mailbox of liberal billionaire George Soros. The Secret Service said it has launched 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.”
“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,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. She did not directly mention the package reportedly sent to the White House. The Time Warner Center in Manhattan has been evacuated too after reports of a suspicious device. “This crap has to stop and I hope they end up in jail for a long time, ” Donald Trump Jr tweeted.
