Obama, Clinton, CNN All Targeted With Pipe Bombs
President Obama, former Secy. of State Hillary Clinton and CNN, all received bombs in the mail today within hours of each other. Obama and Clinton’s bombs were intercepted before they reached their residence, but the one sent to CNN made it to their headquarters in the Time Warner building in NYC.

The package with an explosive device sent to CNN’s NY offices was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, CNN has learned. Brennan doesn't work for CNN. He's a contributor for MSNBC.

The pipe bombs were packed with glass which the sender hoped would send chards of glass flying when the bomb detonated.
We condemn the attempted attacks against fmr Pres Obama, the Clintons, @CNN & others. These cowardly actions are despicable & have no place in this Country. Grateful for swift response of @SecretService, @FBI & local law enforcement. Those responsible will be brought to justice.

Law enforcement taking suspicious package sent to CNN headquarters at Time Warner Center very seriously.

Bombs sent to Obama, Clintons, Soros, CNN. I'm sure glad there's no one who holds regular, televised rallies that whips his followers up into a froth of conspiracy and imagined grievance.

Maybe let’s stop with the bombs and just stick to words and voting. Just a thought.

It's a good time to remember the real issues here, that whilst Soros, Clinton and Obama are having bombs dropped off at their houses that Melania is the most bullied person in the world.

I strongly condemn the attempted acts of violence against President Obama, the Clinton family, @CNN & others. There is no excuse—America is better than this.
Gratitude to the @SecretService and law enforcement for all they do to keep this nation safe.
