A preliminary investigation has reportedly determined the substance to be non-hazardous. It was discovered by two interns at a campaign office in Manhattan and was then taken to Clinton's Brooklyn headquarters. The 11th floor was evacuated, but another floor in the building, used by Clinton's campaign, was reportedly operational during the incident. Police say a total of four people were exposed to the substance. There have been no injuries or reported illnesses.
