'Potential Explosive Devices' Mailed to Clinton Residence, Barack Obama
CNN studio evacuated after suspicious package found.
The Secret Service intercepted two "potential explosive devices" sent by mail to former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
In addition, CNN's New York City studio was evacuated Wednesday morning due to a suspicious package being found.
The mailings came just one day after a suspicious device, reportedly a pipe bomb, was sent to billionaire and left-wing activist George Soros.
"They were functional, but they didn't work, they didn't detonate because of a flaw in the design," Michael Balboni, former New York Homeland Security director, said on "America's Newsroom."

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, in a written statement, condemned what she described as "attempted violent attacks" against the two former first families.
Mrs. Clinton has been campaigning for Democrats in Florida, while her husband was at the residence. The package was found in the vicinity of their home in Chappaqua, New York.
The package addressed to Obama was intercepted Wednesday morning during a Secret Service screening after the Clinton package was discovered late Tuesday.
Balboni said investigators will now examine each device's signature and the materials used in an attempt to locate the perpetrator.
