NYPD Investigating White Powder Found at Clinton's Campaign Headquarters

The Hillary Clinton campaign said on Saturday four people had been examined by medical personnel after a white powdery substance arrived at a NY campaign office.

The envelope actually had quite a journey on Friday as it was first sent to Clinton's midtown Manhattan office and then shipped to her Brooklyn campaign headquarter, according to CNN.

The entirety of the 11th floor of the building had to be evacuated (though another floor was still operational during this).

The substance was discovered in an envelope addressed to the Clinton campaign, Lt. Thomas Antonetti said.

Four people were exposed to the substance, ABC News reported.

Caplin said the office remained open throughout the investigation and would open without interruption on Saturday.

Mrs Clinton was campaigning in OH when the incident occurred. As a precautionary measure, emergency crews were deployed at the Brooklyn office, which was swiftly evacuated amid fears that Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff could be the target of a chemical attack. The NYPD, the Department of Environmental Protection, and the Office of Emergency Management all responded to the incident, and a preliminary test showed that the powder was non-hazardous.
