The incidents come one day after an explosive device was found near the home of left-wing billionaire George Soros. Authorities say they believe that device, which was described as a pipe bomb, was left outside Soros' home and not delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, the Times reports.
In a statement the Secret Service said the packages sent to Obama and Clinton were "potentially explosive." The Secret Service also said it has initiated a full-scope investigation that "will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible."
In a statement sent to reporters, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders condemned what she called "attempted violent attacks."
"These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law," Sanders said. "The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards."
