On Wednesday, a courier dropped off a package containing a suspicious device to at CNN's NY office.

Trump certainly wasn't tame as he addressed thousands at an airport hangar on Wednesday while law enforcement officials nationwide scrambled to find those responsible for a series of attempting bombings targeting current and former Democratic officials and CNN.

The Secret Service said both packages "were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such".

The package is similar to pipe bombs sent to several prominent Democrats, a restaurant belonging to actor Robert de Niro and news studio CNN.

A federal official said law enforcement agencies were closely examining possible ties between the packages and the one sent to Soros, who has come under fierce criticism from conservatives and conspiracy theorists. At least one of the devices appeared to contain projectiles, including shards of glass. The devices are rudimentary but functional. And the NYPD is telling me that it also is similar to other packages that have been discovered this week and, specifically, it contains a device that was similar to what was recovered from CNN's office in NY yesterday.

The package had been received in the general mailroom on Wednesday, according to a law enforcement official.

On Wednesday, the Secret Service said it had intercepted suspicious packages sent to former president Barack Obama and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

The packages, sent in manila envelopes with bubble wrap, marked with computer-printed address labels, listed a return address belonging to Wasserman Schultz.

There is no information that suggests she sent the packages. Trump called the suspicious packages "despicable" and said a "major federal investigation" was underway. "The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice previous year". Debbie Wasserman Schultz, also a Democrat, by way of a fraudulent return address. Though the FBI did not initially include her on a list of targeted individuals, the bureau later said two packages addressed to her and similar to the five others had been found.

"The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them", it said.

To the contrary, Reuters says no explosive packages were sent to the White House.


Local and federal law enforcement officials are investigating the "suspicious package" received at the Clinton home.

"It is a troubling time, isn't it? And it's a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together", Clinton said.

A bomb squad unit drove through NY after leaving the Tribeca neighbourhood where the package was reportedly found at the Tribeca Grill.

The package addressed to Mr Obama was intercepted by the Secret Service at the former president's home in Washington.

All the confirmed bombs appeared to come from the same person or persons, said John Miller, the New York Police Department's head of intelligence and counterterrorism, who briefed reporters in New York.

The White House quickly condemned the attacks aimed at Democrats and perceived foes of the administration.

A package address to Mr Biden was seized in a United States postal service building in Delaware on Thursday and in NY authorities are investigating a suspicious package sent to Tribeca Grill, a restaurant owned by actor Robert De Niro.

The series of bomb alerts began on Monday, when explosive devices were sent to locations in NY, the Washington DC area and Florida. The official also stated that the device inside the package was simple but functional and contained projectiles.

Much was publicly unknown about the devices, including how they were delivered and why none had exploded.

The package was addressed to Booker's office in Camden, New Jersey, sources said.
