ANOTHER BOMB: Device found at Clinton NY Home

The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday that "potential explosive devices" were sent to former President Barack Obama and ex-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

A law enforcement official told The New York Times that the "explosive device" sent to the Clintons' home in Chappaqua, New York, was found by a technician who screens mail for the former president and his family.

The Secret Service said in a statement that the package addressed to Obama was intercepted by agency personnel in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday morning.

"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 said in the statement.

New Castle Police Department Lieutenant James Carroll told CNBC that his department has assisted the FBI and U.S. Secret Service in investigating the package sent to the Clintons, which was discovered last night.

The New York branch of the FBI did not immediately respond to CNBC's phone calls.

The Times reported that the device was similar to one found at the home of George Soros, a politically active billionaire and pariah to many on the right, on Monday.
