More Suspicious Packages Sent to Robert De Niro, Joe Biden

More Suspicious Packages Sent to Robert De Niro, Joe Biden

"That is the only thing I can conclude at this point", Stan Rosenfield told CNN.

Authorities on Thursday found two packages that appeared to contain pipe bombs addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert De Niro, setting off a new wave of alarm amid probe into similar devices sent to prominent Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump.

The agents were reportedly tipped off that the package had been sent to Biden, but was sent back to its return address. Look in the mirror.

Speaking at an event at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Auditorium in Austin, Texas, the former Central Intelligence Agency director said he's hopeful that Trump's statement condemning the pipe bombs sent Wednesday to political leaders and CNN marks "a turning point".

"I think this is an act of political terrorism", Congressman Rodney Davis, a Republican from the state of IL, said on CNN early Thursday. "Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful". Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!'

"Law enforcement will not be intimidated", he said.

A police bomb squad removed the package addressed to Brennan from CNN's NY office, which was evacuated.

Brennan, one of the targets of the suspected pipe bombs, said Trump's critics "will not be intimidated into silence", in response to the president's tweet.

Security at De Niro's NY movie production company found the package addressed to him around 5 a.m. The devices were made from PVC pipe and covered with black tape. But Delaware authorities have said investigators have responded to post offices in Wilmington and New Castle.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly and therefore talked to the AP on condition of anonymity. Tribeca Enterprises said in a statement Thursday morning that the building was open.

The package addressed to Holder did not reach him at his law firm in Washington D.C.; instead it was rerouted to the return address affixed on the envelope - that of Florida Rep. The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. One was intercepted at a Los Angeles mail facility.

None of the bombs detonated, and nobody was hurt.

The package contained a device resembling apparent explosives sent to CNN's NY offices and to several high-profile Democrats on Wednesday, according to NBC News. Trump frequently labels stories he doesn't like as "fake news".

"It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description".

CNN's NY bureau in midtown Manhattan was also reportedly sent a package.

Trump's tweet came as suspected explosive devices addressed to actor Robert De Niro and former Vice President Joe Biden were found Thursday, bringing the total to at least 10 such packages that have been discovered at various locations throughout the United States since Monday. The device was removed by the NYPD's bomb squad by 6:30 a.m.

Police have sent the package to a secure facility in the Bronx, New York Police Department Commissioner James O'Neill said on Twitter.

Right now, we don't know whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation didn't mention her because her package doesn't belong with the others, or perhaps it just was received too late.

De Niro, like the other recipients of packages, has been an outspoken critic of Trump. The package is considered suspicious, but few details have been released.

The FBI said the package intended for the former first lady and secretary of state Clinton was found in the vicinity of her residence in Chappaqua, New York.

New incidents occurred the very next day after 3 is nearly identical bombs were sent to the main competitor trump for the 2016 elections, Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and the headquarters of CNN.

A building worker called police early Thursday after seeing news about suspicious devices sent to political figures and then remembering spotting a similar package in recent days, WNBC said.

Those devices are believed to be pipe bombs, inherently unstable, and at risk of being set off just by handling. Both CNN's and the Tribeca Film Center's buildings were reportedly evacuated.
