A Secret Service spokeswoman told CNN there was no suspicious package addressed to the White House intercepted. The agency said it intercepted only two packages, the ones addressed to Clinton and Obama.

The latest incidents come after envelopes containing a suspicious substance were sent to the White House and Pentagon earlier this month.

A man was arrested in Utah for sending the envelopes to President Trump, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson.

The substance sent to the Pentagon was initially suspected to be the poison risin, but turned out to be castor seeds.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders condemned the attempted attacks. She said in a statement:

“We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures. These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. 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.”
