NEW YORK CITY — Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters was evacuated on Friday evening after two interns found came across an envelope with white powder inside.
The staffers did not call the police. Instead they took the letter from the Manhattan office to Clinton’s campaign office in Brooklyn. In doing so they exposed another two people. A hazmat team was called in and cleared the entire 11th floor of the building where the campaign office is located.
According to the NYPD no injuries occurred, but there is an ongoing investigation into the incident and the white powder. Clinton campaign spokesman Glen Caplin said in a statement, “Preliminary testing by federal and local officials has found the substance to be non-hazardous.
Clinton was not in New York on Friday. She was campaigning in Cleveland, Ohio.
