Over the last 24 hours, the Secret Service has intercepted two suspicious packages, one sent to the offices of Hillary Clinton and the other to Barack Obama in Washington D.C. The packages were said to contain explosive materials and were found during a routine mail inspection. This comes just after billionaire George Soros was sent and IED in his mailbox.
Shortly afterward, an explosive device was sent to CNN at 10 Columbus Circle in New York. The package was addressed to former CIA Director Jim Brennan, a frequent guest on the network and the subject of many right-wing conspiracy theories.
And, I was writing this very story up, another package was found addressed to Democratic Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
These events come just days after President Trump decried “liberal mobs” inciting violence throughout the country. All of the public officials who had been sent bombs were favorite targets of right wing groups and the vast majority of terrorism in the United States comes from White Nationalist groups.
