Yesterday, a package addressed to Hillary Clinton at her house in New York was intercepted by the Secret Service.

It has been reported that this package, and the one addressed to Barack Obama have both been treated by authorities as potentially explosive devices.

Since then, Robert De Niro and Joe Biden have both been sent similar packages, both of which have been intercepted, according to the New York Times.

According to CNN, the package sent to former vice-President Joe Biden was considered potentially dangerous due to its similarities to the other packages sent this week, law enforcement officials said on Thursday.

This package in particular was misaddressed and returned to sender, two law enforcement sources have said.

Both men have been vocal critics of the president in the past, with both Joe Biden and Robert De Niro having threatened Donald Trump with violence in the past, with De Niro once saying that he'd love to punch him in the face.

The White House condemned the attacks on the Obamas and the Clintons yesterday.
