WATCH: CNN reports from outside after studios were evacuated

WASHINGTON — On the same day that suspicious packages addressed to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were intercepted by the Secret Service, CNN’s New York offices received one as well, prompting an evacuation of its midtown-Manhattan studios Wednesday.

A police bomb squad later removed the suspicious package.

Poppy Harlow and Jim Scuitto reported from outside the building as New York police investigated. Here’s how they covered it.
