Prominent liberals — including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, and former Vice President Joe Biden — were sent suspicious packages containing explosive devices this week.
The trail of pipe bombs has targeted former presidents, administration officials, an actor and a billionaire, all tied in some way to the Democratic Party or progressive politics. The FBI, Secret Service, and state authorities have launched a major investigation.
So far, official sources confirm the following people have been sent explosive devices:
- Hillary and Bill Clinton
- Barack and Michelle Obama
- Liberal donor George Soros
- Former CIA Director John Brennan (at the New York City CNN newsroom)
- Rep. Maxine Waters
- Former Attorney General Eric Holder (package sent to the return address, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Florida office)
- Actor Robert De Niro
- Joe Biden
After the threats, President Donald Trump called on Americans to “unify and send a clear message that acts of political violence have no place in the United States.” However, hours later at a rally in Wisconsin, he sounded off on the media for what he characterized as sowing divisiveness, and he hasn’t addressed his own endorsements of political violence.
