An “explosive device” of some sort was discovered in the mailbox of billionaire George Soros’ home in Katonah, NY on Monday:

According to the New York Times, one of Soros’ staffers had actually opened the package containing the device, but it did not detonate. The staffer then took the package out to the woods and called the police:
The "found near" in this headline doesn't capture the gist of the story. Someone left a bomb in Soros's mail at his house, packaged in such a way that one of his staffers took it inside and opened it.. https://t.co/haPZTV8H1X

More from the NYT:
A law enforcement official confirmed that the device was found near Mr. Soros’s home. It did not explode on its own, and bomb squad technicians “proactively detonated” it, the official said.
Federal and state law enforcement officials responded to the scene in Katonah, N.Y., a hamlet in the upscale town of Bedford in northern Westchester County, after the Bedford Police Department received a call about a suspicious package at about 3:45 p.m.
“An employee of the residence opened the package, revealing what appeared to be an explosive device,” the police said in a statement. “The employee placed the package in a wooded area and called the Bedford police.”
Thankfully nobody was hurt and we sincerely hope the FBI catches the people behind this and they’re prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
WTF is this? Resistance bros Ed and Brian Krassenstein go to bat for George Soros and we just can't https://t.co/fzCffSyszS
