This morning Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton had packages addressed to them with potential explosives in them intercepted as they were being delivered to their homes in Washington and New York, respectively, according to People.
In statement addressed by the Secret Service intercepted a suspicious package addressed to former Secretary of State Clinton during the late hours of October 23rd and just this morning they intercepted another suspicious package addressed to former President Obama. The Secret Service immediately identified the packages as potential explosive devices and were never within close proximity with Obama or Clinton. The Service has launched a full scale investigation.
Officials have confirmed that the suspicious packages were similar to the one that was found at the home of Democrat George Soros. In addition, another suspicious device was found in NYC's Time Warner Center where CNN is based. It is not certain that these incidents are related.
Press secretary Sanders sent out a statement saying that these acts of terrorism are despicable and the person or person involved will be persecuted to the full extent of the law.
Now what I'm about to say is purely speculative and does not reflect the views of other Instinct writers, but judging by the fact that the packages were sent to Obama, Hillary, Soros, and potentially the CNN headquarters, all victims of president Trump's hateful rhetoric, leads me to believe that this was an act of domestic terrorism that should not be taken lightly. I believe this because of the fact that all of the potential victims are Democratic and/or left-leaning and in this divisive political climate, there is a great deal of hate directed towards both sides of the political spectrum but only one side was almost gravely affected. I don't know if it was just one despondent person who hates Obama, Hillary, Soros, and the free press or if there's a group of people hell bent on taking down Democratic leaders, but either way this is definitely a dark and frightening time in this nation's history.
