Both sides of the political aisle have now received envelopes in the mail containing suspicious white powder.

Monday, President Trump’s daughter-in-law, Vanessa Trump, opened an envelope that had white powder in it, and was rushed to the hospital as a precaution. That turned out to be cornstarch.

Tuesday, former president Obama’s office in Washington, D.C. was also the recipient of a mailing containing white powder. This letter was reportedly sent from Hong Kong, and contained baby powder.

Fox 5 News reported:

The Secret Service is investigating after reports that a white powdery substance had been found at former President Barack Obama’s D.C. office.

The incident was reported Tuesday around 12:30 p.m. at 1250 24th Street in Northwest D.C. The former president has leased office space in the building since leaving office in January 2017. The building is owned by the non-profit World Wildlife Fund, which has its headquarters in the space.

D.C. Fire and EMS Battalion Chief Edward Smith tells FOX 5 a letter was mailed to the West End office from Hong Kong, and it reportedly contained baby powder. Authorities say had no return address.

D.C. police and fire crews responded, as well as the FBI and Secret Service. There were no reports of injuries or anyone being evacuated from the building.

The Obama family lives in D.C.’s  Kalorama neighborhood, not far from the office building. It is unclear if the former president was in the office when the incident was reported.
