Fox New’s daytime show “Outnumbered” had guest Chris Swecker, a former FBI assistant director, live on air while news continued to break of various explosive devices being sent to left-leaning politicians like former President Obama, Hillary Clinton and former Attorney General Eric Holder.
Swecker quickly offered the show’s host Harris Faulkner analysis on the developing news saying that law enforcement will “be looking at this as a potential terrorist motive, whether it’s on one side or the other."
“And as you correctly pointed out earlier,” Swecker continued, “this doesn’t necessarily mean that someone is espousing some sort of conservative ideology and targeting Democrats.”
“It could be someone who is trying to get the Democratic vote out and incur sympathy.”

“That’s interesting,” Faulkner quickly replied.
Other conservative voices quickly echoed Swecker, with Frank Gaffney writing on Twitter, "None of the leftists ostensibly targeted for pipe-bombs were actually at serious risk, since security details would be screening their mail. So let’s determine not only who is responsible for these bombs, but whether they were trying to deflect attention from the Left’s mobs."
Guardian journalist Jon Swaine quickly tweeted out a list of other commentators and pro-Trump personalities suggesting the bomb scares were a hoax. The list included Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Candace Owens - among many others.
