Pipe bombs packed with shards of glass sent to Obama and Clintons

Pipe bombs packed with shards of glass sent to Obama and Clintons

Debbie Wasserman Schultz was evacuated Wednesday after a suspicious package was mailed there.

CNN's NY studios were evacuated Wednesday morning after discovery of a possible explosive device sent to the Time Warner Center in Manhattan.

One of the explosives was sent to CNN, which prompted the evacuation of the Time Warner Center in Manhattan where the news outlet has its offices.

"The attempt to spread fear is the world we live in", New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said at the same briefing.

The FBI said late on Wednesday it had confirmed that two additional packages, similar in appearance to the others, were addressed to US Representative Waters, a veteran Democratic congresswoman from Los Angeles and also an outspoken Trump critic.

Following the reports, the police stated that the package appeared to have an explosive device and an envelope with white powder inside.

Campaign chairman Brad Parscale later apologized, saying it was a pre-programmed message that was not caught before news of the pipe bomb came out.

"There would need to be a second set of batteries or another power source within that device to function the switch causing the device to explode", May said.

A law enforcement official said the devices were similar to one found Monday at the home of George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist and liberal donor. Across the street, Thomas Fiori, a former federal law enforcement officer, said he saw about 50 armed officers swarm a man standing outside a white van.

The packages were in manila envelopes with bubble-wrap interior, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, and each package had six American flag Forever stamps on the envelope.

California lawmaker Maxine Waters was sent two suspicious packages.

BREAKING: Secret Service intercepts suspicious packages addressed to the residences of former President Obama and former First Lady Hillary Clinton.

On Packages Sent to Clinton and ObamaAccording to the Secret Service, both packages were identified during routine mail screening procedures. "In these times we have to unify".

The San Diego office of Sen.

Initial reports by CNN that the White House received a similar "suspicious package" was incorrect, according to the Secret Service. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee who was accused by Clinton rivals of secretly helping the party's eventual presidential nominee.

Hillary Clinton, speaking at a campaign event in Florida, said, "We are fine, thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service who intercepted the package addressed to us long before it reached our home".

Also on Wednesday, from the White House, Trump said his administration is "extremely angry" about the incidents, adding that "the full weight of our government is being deployed to conduct this investigation and bring those responsible for these despicable acts to justice".

"He should not be beating the tom-toms of anger and animosity and war", said the former Central Intelligence Agency chief, whose security clearance was revoked by Trump after he criticized the president's summit earlier this year with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Time and time again, the president has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions: expressing support for the Congressman who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get violent with protesters, dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people". The package sent to CNN contained a live explosive and envelope with white powder, and officials said the substance was being tested to see if it was unsafe.

A police bomb squad and canine units joined federal investigators on Thursday examining a U.S. mail distribution center at Opa-Locka, northwest of Miami, Miami-Dade County police said. A fundraising email attacking CNN sent out as the story unfolded deepened that perception.

A package containing a possible explosive device and intended for Clinton, the former secretary of state and first lady, was intercepted.

On Thursday, without directly referencing the explosive devices, Trump again blamed the media for the "anger" in society.

The NYPD increased patrols at media locations in the city and other potential areas, a spokesman for the department said. A Soros employee opened it just inside the gates, not near Soros' quarters, the official said.
