Federal authorities have intercepted suspicious packages addressed to the New York home of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Washington D.C. home of former President Barack Obama.
Late Tuesday night, the U.S. Secret Service said it recovered a suspicious package addressed to Hillary Clinton's Chappaqua, New York home and early Wednesday morning, a second package addressed to the home of Obama was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington D.C.
The Secret Service said the packages were, "immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devises and were appropriately handled as such. The protectees did not receive the packages, nor were they at risk of receiving them."
A senior law enforcement official told ABC News the device addressed to the Clintons was a potentially workable explosive device.
Earlier this week, an explosive device was found in the mailbox of philanthropist and billionaire George Soros, who also lives in Westchester County.
