Update 1: Suspicious packages were also addressed to the White House and CNN.

Original Post

The Secret Service has now reportedly identified two suspicious packages, one addressed to Hillary Clinton in New York and one addressed to former president Barack Obama in Washington, D.C. Both packages were found during "routine mail screening procedures."

An “explosive device” was found by a technician who screens the mail for Bill and Hillary Clinton early Wednesday morning, a law enforcement official told The New York Times.

The official described the device as “similar to one found at the home of the billionaire philanthropist George Soros on Monday.”

The device found at Soros's home was a pipe bomb which was found in the mailbox. Soros lives in the same New York county as the Clintons.

ABC is reporting that “preliminary investigations suggest the package was found near, not on, the Clintons' property in the Westchester County town of Chappaqua.”

"The Secret Service has initiated a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible," Assistant Special Agent Mason Brayman with the Secret Service said in a statement.

The White House condemned the incidents in a statement.
