On Friday, an envelope containing white powder was sent to Hillary Clinton‘s New York campaign offices. Police said the substance tested negative for anything harmful. Clinton has been the target of online attacks and now she is getting physical ones. The envelope actually had quite a journey on Friday as it was first sent to Clinton’s midtown Manhattan office and then shipped to her Brooklyn campaign headquarter, according to CNN.

Although the letter tested negative for containing anything harmful, CNN reported the Brooklyn building’s 11th floor was evacuated as a precaution. But one floor used by Clinton did remain open. Clinton campaign spokesman Glen Caplin said the people evacuated were not sick and they plan to keep their offices open:

“The four individuals involved have reported no health issues and, following a full examination by medical personnel, were each released to go home. Our office remained open throughout this period and will remain open without interruption (Saturday) morning.”

The suspicious white powder is not being taken lightly as major investigative units are getting involved, as they should for a presidential candidate. CNN reported the NYPD are heading up the investigation, with the U.S. Secret Service and the Office of Emergency Management lending a helping hand.
