Four suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats – and CNN – all contained the same return address, law enforcement officials said.
Suspicious packages were intercepted before they reached former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Another package was discovered in CNN’s New York City bureau mailroom. A fourth package was discovered at Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-FL) Sunrise, FL, office.
The packages all had one odd thing in common: The return addresses belonged to Wasserman Schultz, law enforcement officials told NBC.

It seems unlikely that Wasserman Schultz is behind the suspicious packages.
Wasserman Schultz was the former head of the Democratic National Committee while Obama was president.
CNN earlier reported that a fifth package was addressed to the White House, but this turned out to be incorrect. Earlier in the week, however, an explosive device was found in the mailbox of liberal billionaire George Soros’ home.
