The situation is still unfolding. Law enforcement has linked the explosive devices sent to Clinton and Soros to a bomb discovered in financier and philanthropist George Soros’ mailbox earlier this week. A suspicious package was also sent to the New York City offices of CNN. There was also a report that a suspicious package had been sent to the White House, but Reuters and the Secret Service later said the initial report was incorrect. And there are additional reports of explosive devices being sent to politicians, though they have not all been corroborated. In light of this complicated set of circumstances, far-right media seem to agree on one thing: The explosive devices sent to Obama and Clinton are a hoax or false flag attack.
