James Woods called the “potential explosive devices” intercepted in the mail to Hillary Clinton an “obvious political stunt.”
“Who gives a rat’s ass about the #Clintons enough to do this? Obvious political stunt …,” the actor tweeted Wednesday along with an AP tweet saying that a bomb was found at the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in a New York City suburb.

Earlier Wednesday, it was reported that a similar device was also sent to the office of former president Barack Obama. The New York Times reported that the devices were similar to the one intercepted set for delivery to the home of billionaire George Soros on Monday.
Here’s the statement issued by the Secret Service, as obtained by TheWrap.
The U.S. Secret Service has intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service protectees. Late on October 23, 2018, the Secret Service recovered a single package addressed to Former First Lady Hillary Clinton in Westchester County, New York. Early this morning, October 24, 2018, a second package addressed to the residence of Former President Barack Obama was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC. The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such. Both packages were intercepted prior to being delivered to their intended location. The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them. The Secret Service has initiated a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.
