The package was initially sent to Holder but had the wrong address and was sent to Wasserman Schultz’s office because her contact info was listed as the return address, according to CNN.

An FBI spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill that the FBI is "working in coordination with our law enforcement partners to investigate the suspicious packages" but declined to comment on CNN's report.

Those packages all included explosive devices, and the ones sent to Obama and Clinton were intercepted by the Secret Service.

Authorities have said the packages sent to Clinton, Obama, CNN and Soros appear to have similarities. All are said to have had Wasserman Schultz's office listed on the return address.

Separately, the staff of the San Diego Union-Tribune evacuated its offices on Wednesday after a suspicious package was found outside the building that houses the newspaper and a branch office for Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.). A spokesperson for Harris said the package wasn't addressed to the senator.
