Earlier this week, a suspicious package targeting billionaire investor and major Democratic donor George Soros was discovered and rendered safe.

The package sent to the home of Hillary and former President Bill Clinton was suspected to be the work of the same person who sent a similar device to Soros, the Washington Post reported citing two law enforcement officials as saying.
