  White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement Wednesday: "These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law." She adds: "The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards."

  The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday that agents have intercepted packages containing "possible explosive devices" addressed to former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

  The agency says neither Clinton nor Obama received the packages, and neither was at risk of receiving them because of screening procedures.
