Bomb Squad Detonates Bomb Found In George Soros' Home Mailbox

Bedford police said they were called by an employee of George Soros who found the explosive device in his mailbox.

Bedford, NY – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is investigating a bomb left in the mailbox of controversial billionaire George Soros, who is believed to have funded many of the violent protests since President Donald Trump was elected.

Bedford police told NPR in a statement that the investigation began after an employee of the house found a package in the mailbox at about 3:45 p.m. on Monday.

“An employee of the residence opened the package, revealing what appeared to be an explosive device,” the Bedford Police Department wrote in a statement to The New York Times. “The employee placed the package in a wooded area and called the Bedford police.”

State and federal officials, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), arrived at Soros’ home in the community of Katonah to investigate.

An "extensive investigation" involving the Bedford Police Department, the Westchester County Police Department, the ATF, and the FBI, began immediately.

The explosive device did not explode on its own, so officials said bomb squad technicians “proactively detonated it,” according to The New York Times.

The Bedford Police Department told NPR that control of the investigation has been turned over to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Soros was not in residence when the bomb was found in his mailbox.

The tony neighborhood where the bomb was found is home to such celebrities as Martha Stewart, Glenn Close, and Ralph Lauren, The New York Times reported.

Soros is a well-known Democratic donor who funds nonprofits accused of paying protesters to demonstrate and wreak havoc in the wake of President Donald Trump’s election.

The billionaire has taken an interest in progressive criminal justice policies, and has funded the campaigns of anti-police prosecutors who have platforms that focus on helping criminals.

His support helped get Philadelphia prosecutor Larry Krasner elected.

Krasner, is known for calling police and prosecutors liars, and has sued law enforcement and government agencies over 75 times, has promised to end “mass incarceration” by starving the criminal justice system.

Soros, who was born and raised in Hungary during the Nazi occupation, became a major political donor in the United States during George W. Bush’s second campaign, according to The New York Times.

He spent $24 million backing John Kerry’s unsuccessful presidential bid, and was an early Barack Obama’s campaign contributor.

Soros, who contributed more than $25 million to Hillary Clinton and other Democrats in 2016, is a strong proponent of open borders.

He founded the pro-immigration Open Society Foundation in 1993, and has been widely criticized for influencing and interfering in politics in the United States and parts of Europe.

His homeland of Hungary passed a “Stop Soros” law in 2018 that banned civil society groups from helping migrants, NPR reported.

Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán ran a billboard campaign against migration and foreign influence in 2017 that featured a picture of Soros, Fortune reported.

As much as I dislike Soros...this is not the way to solve a problem. If you do this then you're just as bad as Soros and his ilk. IMHO.

[sarcasm font] Where Soros has been so against our 2A, he should work diligently and encourage us all to stand up as a community and work toward enacting tougher laws against bombs and bomb-making. [/sarcasm font]

Definitely an inside job. Too bad local police turned it over to the FBI, we’ll never know the truth now. Anti Soros is at an all time high. This is a little ploy against the opposition.

The news reported that a bomb was found in the mailbox of "philanthropist and sometime liberal benefactor" George Soros.... Yeah, that is hilarious propaganda...

There are, supposedly, outstanding warrants , in Eastern Europe for his immediate arrest if he ever sets foot in Hungary. How about we encourage his emmigration to his home country so he can receive his just deserts ?

Law Enforcement should have refused to respond. Or overbilled Soros for the time spent. Then purchased equipment for LE Officers

I had better not comment on this situation. My comment would probably get me in trouble. However, that slug should NOT be funding the defamation against MY President.

Doesn’t Soros fund Terrorist behaviours against police. He needs to be charged for his funding of criminal organizations

I hope they find the bombardier was an Antifa idiot that didn't get his payoff from old Soros.

Interesting event and timing. Send yourself an explosive device less than 2 weeks from midterm elections and help the rumors point to the President's supporters. Right out of the Rules for Radicals playbook.

Does anyone really believe that Soros and the Clintons, Obama, etc don't all have security guards and cameras all over their properties?? Perhaps they need to fire the guards, view their cameras and hire new guards who will guard and protect their precious a$$'s. How convenient to have those bombs appear just before the elections and our borders are threatened by people who don't give a rip about this country but want to reap the benefits of those who lived, worked and died for it,

I notice they did not mention his ties to the Nazis in WWII - he is a Jew and he helped the Nazis take possessions from other Jews. I am not sure that I can agree on this being the most horrid thing that could happen...he deserves it more than anyone else I can think of.

Reminds me of when Dick Cheney knew about the anthrax before any of the contaminated letters were discovered.

These bombers are terrorists. They will be found out. We cannot have this in a free society.
