The midterm election is coming down the home stretch.
Republicans are surging in races across America.
But everything hit the fan when the Secret Service made a bombshell announcement about Bill Clinton.
Suspicious Packages Sent To Political Figures
A series of suspicious packages were sent to several political figures.
An employee for George Soros discovered one in the mailbox and called authorities.
Two days later, the Secret Service announced they intercepted packages containing explosive devices that were sent to former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
The Secret Service put out a statement that read:
The U.S. Secret Service has intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service protectees.
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.
The White House also put out a statement in response:
“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.”
Donald Trump Responds
Donald Trump addressed these incidents at a White House event.
He condemned any act of political violence.
“We are extremely angry, upset and unhappy about what we witnessed this morning and we will get to the bottom of it,” he said, which were not in his prepared remarks.
In addition, Trump stated, “In these times, we have to unify. We have to come together and send one very clear, strong unmistakable message: that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”
Many so-called “journalists” spent the morning lying about Trump and blaming him for the attacks.
CNN had also received one of these explosive devices.
A staffer told The View co-host Sunny Hostin – without citing any evidence – that Trump was to blame for the bomb threat.
According to Hostin, the CNN staffer told her, “This is what happens when the president calls you the enemy of the people.”
But the CNN staffer is telling an outrageous lie.
On a day when Trump called for unity, the media could not help but still attack him.
