Earlier, the Secret Service reported intercepting two suspicious packages addressed to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In a separate incident, the Time Warner Center in New York, which houses the CNN newsroom, was evacuated due to a mail bomb addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan. And on Monday, a bomb was found in the mail sent to the home of billionaire George Soros.
