On Oct. 24, a suspicious package was sent to the Chappaqua, New York home of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Another explosive device was sent to former President Barack Obama’s office in Washington. Then media organizations were evacuated from their offices as more explosives started arriving at office across the country.

Fully functional pipe bombs were sent to the homes of two former Democratic presidents and news agencies like CNN became targets of suspicious packages.

Live on the air, the fire alarm went off at the New York City offices in the Time Warner Center. The alarm prompted an evacuation of the building and CNN employees shared their experiences on social media. The building, located at Columbus Circle, is also home to other offices, a mall, and a Whole Foods.

NYPD confirmed that the device sent to CNN was constructed the same as a pipe bomb.

CNN is reporting that the package was sent to their offices was labeled to former CIA Director John Brennan, who regularly appears on their show. It also appears that the package looked similar to those packages sent to the Clintons and the Obamas.

CNN reporters in NYC continue to be evacuated and are conducting their reporting from their cell phones.

During a press conference, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, said that the attack against CNN is “clearly is an act of terror.”

The device was taken to a remote area for further investigation.

The bomb was placed in a white sphere that keeps the pressure on the device. It was then transported on a special flatbed to be examined further away from its intended target.

Vice President Mike Pence condemned the act, but some Latinx journalist are questioning his message.

President Donald Trump issued a tweet, replying to Pence saying that “I agree wholeheartedly!”

The midterm elections are less than two weeks away and some are pointing out the timing of the bombs.

People pointed out on social media that all of the people that were targeted today: George Soros, the Clinton’s, Obama, John Brennan, CNN, are people and institutions that Trump has bashed in the past.

The offices of the San Diego Tribune and Sen. Kamala Harries were also evacuated for similar circumstances.

According to reporters at the Tribune, the building also houses “law firms, co-working space, media and technology companies.”

There is also news that packages have also been sent to Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters and Democrat Rep. Wasserman-Schultz.

People are speculating on the timing and motive of the coordinated dissemination of the bombs.

This story is developing and we will update as it unfolds.
