Clintons And Obamas Receive Threatening Packages That Include Explosives: Report
Early Wednesday morning, the Clintons and the Obamas received packages that were very peculiar. It was initially reported that an “improvised explosive device” was found near the house belonging to the Clintons in Chappaqua, New York. Just a few hours later, the Obamas received a similar package that had to be intercepted by U.S. Secret Service.
According to NY1 reporter Myles Miller, suspicious packages were found near the home of the Clintons. After authorities investigated the package they found that it contained IED.
