Explosive Device Found Near George Soros’s Home in Westchester County

An explosive device was found on Monday near the Westchester County home of George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist who is a favorite target of right-wing groups, according to a law enforcement official.

The device did not explode on its own, and bomb squad technicians “proactively detonated” it, the official said.

Federal and state law enforcement officials responded to the scene in Katonah, N.Y., a hamlet in the upscale town of Bedford in northern Westchester.

The Bedford Police Department and the Westchester County Department of Public Safety said Monday night that they were investigating at that location. The police declined to answer questions but said that a hazardous device unit had been requested. ...

His activism has made him a villain to conservative groups and the target of anti-Semitic smears. Roseanne Barr called him a Nazi in an infamous tweetstorm, and Representative Matt Gaetz, Republican of Florida, falsely speculated that Mr. Soros had funded a caravan of migrants moving north toward Mexico.

I read somewhere on twitter (lost forever now) that the device was in the mailbox, packaged in such a way as to be indistinguishable from daily mai and was brought into the house by the employee. Unknown if mailed or placed in the mailbox.

Will Trump prosecute this instance of domestic terrorism if the perpetrator(s) is caught? I have my doubts.

Associated Press
Law enforcement official: Soros device had bomb components

BEDFORD, N.Y. (AP) — A device found outside a suburban New York residential compound owned by liberal philanthropist George Soros "had the components" of an actual bomb, including explosive powder, a law enforcement official said Tuesday.

"The components were there for an explosive device," said the official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the continuing investigation. "It was not a hoax device."

The official said the investigators were reviewing surveillance video Tuesday to determine whether the package had been sent through the mail or otherwise delivered. Among the unanswered questions was whether the package was addressed to Soros, the billionaire who is a frequent target of right-wing conspiracy theories.

The Bedford Police Department said it responded to the address in the hamlet of Katonah, part of the Town of Bedford, at 3:45 p.m. A security officer who worked at the compound placed the package in a wooded area and called police, who alerted the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Bedford police said the FBI's terrorism task force was investigating. The FBI's New York field office said on Twitter that there was "no threat to public safety." A message emailed to Soros' foundation wasn't immediately returned.

I think a better question is whether the OSG will pardon the perpetrator once they're charged.

NBC News
Official: Suspicious Package Found at Clintons' Chappaqua Home

A senior law enforcement official says a suspicious package was found at the Chappaqua home of Hillary and Bill Clinton Wednesday, and the concern is that the package is similar to the bomb found in the mailbox of George Soros' home in the same county days earlier.

No further details were immediately available Wednesday.

The incident comes two days after a bomb was planted in a mailbox at the Bedford home of billionaire philanthropist Soros. No one was hurt in that case. It's not clear if the cases, both in Westchester County, could be related.

In Soros' case, an employee noticed the package, put it in a wooded area and called police, who alerted the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives. A law enforcement source told NBC 4 New York that the device contained explosive powder; it was detonated as a precaution.

It's no longer just the Clintons:
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/suspic ... police-say
It first emerged that the FBI was investigating one suspicious package found by the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York. But in a statement, the Secret Service said after that package addressed to Hillary Clinton was caught late Tuesday, a second package addressed to Obama "was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC" on Wednesday morning.

When I read packages were "addressed", I think US Mail and with packages that usually come with tracking numbers. Or is this person(s) leaving the packages somewhere? I'm sure we'll hear eventually.

And...just now hearing that CNN had to evacuate and it sounds like suspicious package(s).

I think they only use tracking numbers if you add them. I get pkgs all the time (putting together a memory quilt and collecting stuff from all over the world for it) and they don't have any sort of tracking on the ones that just come in manila envelopes with regular stamps. There's a bar code for the zip, but that's it.

Update:
Reuters: No suspicious package addressed to White House

There was no suspicious package addressed to the White House on Wednesday, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Earlier, the source believed there had been a package intercepted. The U.S. Secret Service on Wednesday said it had intercepted suspicious packages addressed to former President Barack Obama in Washington and former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in New York.
----------------------------------

CNBC
Suspicious package addressed to the White House intercepted: CNN
A suspicious package apparently containing a pipe bomb that was addressed to the White House was intercepted on Wednesday, according to CNN, which cited a law enforcement official.

Earlier in the day, the Secret Service said that "potential explosive devices" were addressed to former President Barack Obama and ex-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The Time Warner building in New York City on Wednesday was evacuated following a report of suspicious package.

The device sent to the White House was similar to those sent to Clinton and Obama, according to the CNN report. It was also similar to the device sent to the liberal billionaire philanthropist George Soros earlier in the week, CNN said.

TY. When we mail stuff at the office, we were told by USPS a couple of years ago we had to add the tracking numbers (roll of stickers provided free of charge), no more just sticking the box on the postage meter and printing out a tape with the postage on it.

This is just crazy, I walk away from the internet for an hour and the world explodes. Weird to see the CNN anchors reporting on the street with their phones.

CNN: Time Warner building evacuated due to suspicious package

Police have been called to the Time Warner Center in New York to reportedly investigate a suspicious package, with CNN employees saying they have been evacuated from the building.

CNN was forced to cut a live broadcast out of its New York City studios, which are housed in the building, after an alarm went off due a suspected suspicious package, according to employees.

The alarm went off during "CNN Newsroom," with anchors Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto cutting an interview short that was focused on suspicious packages sent to the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York and one package intercepted by the Secret Service that was intended to reach President Obama in Washington, D.C.

CNN switched to its Washington, D.C., studio to resume its broadcast Wednesday morning.

Some reports that CNN was wrong about package addressed to White House.

Reuters reports, citing a person familiar with the situation, that there was no suspicious package addressed to the White House.
It's all fast moving news, but CNN reporting on air the package was found in their mailroom and a 911 call was placed.

Soros. Clinton. Obama. CNN.

That's THE list of the all-time biggest targets of right-wing lies, smears and paranoid fantasies.

And we're supposed to believe the same person also attacked the White House? Please.

Police confirmed they're investigating a possible suspicious package at the Sunrise offices of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Wednesday, on the same day that suspicious packages were addressed to Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.

Sunrise Police said they responded to the office of the Democratic rep for Florida's 23rd congressional district. No other information was immediately known.

CNN is reporting that the package in their mail room was addressed to John Brennan.

Are we due for a thread title change?
