Explosive devices sent to Clintons, Obama and CNN newsroom have ‘similar components,’ return address listed as ‘prominent Democratic official’

The suspicious packages sent to Bill and Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama’s office, billionaire philanthropist George Soros, and the CNN newsroom in the Time Warner Building appear to have been part of a coordinated attempted attack.

Multiple new outlet reported on Wednesday that packages had the same return address, and MSNBC has reported that the return address on the packages was listed as Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

NBC News reporter Tom Winter had earlier posted on Twitter Wednesday about the suspicious packages, believed to have contained explosive devices, that were sent to high-profile Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump. Winter wrote in his tweet that the packages were the same color and had similar or identical components.

The name on the return address was disclosed following reports that Wasserman Schultz’s office in Florida received a suspicious package. CNN reports that the package was intended to be sent to Former Attorney General Eric Holder.
