The Clinton campaign headquarters in New York City was evacuated after a white, powdery substance was found, causing a major security scare.
The New York Police Department said the substance was found in an envelope opened by two interns at Clinton’s Manhattan offices at around 5:30 p.m. Friday. It was then taken to the 11th floor of her Brooklyn headquarters.
The New York Post reported that emergency services ordered the floor to be evacuated after four people were exposed to the substance.
