  • Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday said
    that “as an American” she is “worried” after an attempted attack
    on her New York home.
  • Clinton said Americans are living in a time of “deep
    divisions” and must do “everything that we can to bring our
    country together.”
  • The US Secret Service said
    explosive devices were sent to the Clintons
    as well as
    former President Barack Obama’s home in DC.
  • The NYPD also removed a suspicious package from CNN’s offices
    in New York City.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday said that
“as an American” she is “worried” after an explosive device was
sent to her New York home.

Speaking at a fundraiser in Florida, Clinton expressed gratitude
to the US Secret Service.

“We are fine thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service
who intercepted the package addressed to us long before it made
its way to our home,” Clinton said. “Everyday we are grateful for
their service and commitment and obviously, never more than
today.”

The former Democratic presidential nominee added, “But it is a
troubling time, isn’t it?”

Clinton said Americans are living in a time of “deep divisions”
and must do “everything that we can to bring our country
together.”

“We also have to elect candidates who will try to do the same,”
she continued.

Clinton expressed deep concern about “the direction of our
country.”

“Usually when people ask me how am I doing, which happens quite
often, I say, well, as a person, I’m great,” Clinton said. “As an
American, I’m worried.”

The US Secret Service on Wednesday said explosive devices were
sent to the Clintons as well as to former President Barack Obama
at his home in DC. The NYPD also removed a suspicious package
reportedly addressed to former CIA Director
John Brennan
at CNN’s offices in New York
City
.

The devices were reportedly similar to an explosive found in the
mailbox of billionaire Democratic donor George Soros on Monday,
sources told The New York Times.

There have been additional reports of suspicious packages or
devices being sent to other top Democratic figures.

The White House on Wednesday condemned the attempted attacks,
describing them as
“terrorizing acts” and “despicable.”

Chelsea Clinton also tweeted her thanks to the
Secret Service. “Every day, I am grateful to the women and men of
the United States Secret Service,” the former first daughter
said. “Thank you.”
