  • Bill and Hillary Clinton stand in the driveway of their new home in Chappaqua N.Y. A U.S. official says a

The evacuation came after the Secret Service intercepted suspected improvised explosive devices sent to former President Barack Obama and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton overnight.

The US Secret Service intercepted a bomb that was addressed to Hillary Clinton at her Chappaqua, New York, home and a possible explosive that was sent to former President Obama in his home in Washington.

In addition to the suspicious devices sent to Obama and Clinton, a similar device was found at the home of billionaire George Soros.

The New Castle Police Department, which covers the area around the Clinton home, issued a statement: "This morning, the New Castle Police Department assisted to FBI, Secret Service, and the Westchester County Police with the investigation of a suspicious package".

Sanders said on "Fox & Friends" it was "absolutely disgraceful that one of the first public statements we heard from CNN was to put the blame and the responsibility of this despicable act on the president and on me personally".

In addition, the NY offices of U.S. cable news channel CNN have been evacuated on Wednesday morning after a suspicious device was discovered in the building's mail room.

According to the New York Times, the device sent to the Clintons was similar to the one sent to Soros, a liberal donor who has always been the target of conservative conspiracies. Brennan's package was addressed to CNN's NY office, prompting a newsroom evacuation. The news set off a shockwave of responses - far-right voices, including Rush Limbaugh, immediately suggested the Democrats were behind the bombs, while Mike Pence condemned the person behind the explosives. The Secret Service screens all mail addressed to its protectees; the Clintons and Obamas have had Secret Service detail since serving in the White House.

Initial reports claimed that the White House had also received a suspicious package but have since been debunked.

The device was discovered early Wednesday morning at the Clintons' home in Chappaqua, New York.

CNN has distinguished itself in the last two years for its aggressive coverage of the Trump administration and robust criticism of the Republican, who replaced Obama and defeated Clinton in the 2016 election. Officials from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are at the sites of the multiple packages and were at Soros' Bedford, New York, home on Tuesday, a spokeswoman said.

The Soros package also had the return address of Wasserman Schultz, a former party chairwoman, a law enforcement source and a federal source briefed on the investigation said Wednesday.

Sciutto tweeted a picture from outside CNN headquarters in NY after it was evacuated Wednesday morning. The Time Warner Center was forced to evacuate.

The packages reportedly contained small, crude but potentially lethal pipe bombs: usually a metal water pipe filled with explosive material and shrapnel, tightly sealed at the ends and detonated by a fuse inserted through a hole.
