Obama, Clintons sent 'explosive devices' through the mail

The FBI said it was investigating the package.

The package was received within the past few days, said police. Officials say investigators are analyzing the materials from that device to try to help in understanding it. Another was found in a Los Angeles postal facility.

"We're all behaving very well, and hopefully we can keep it that way", he insisted. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description". Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!'

CNN cited three unnamed sources saying that the suspicious package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, in care of CNN's NY offices. Hours earlier Trump had complained via tweet that "this "bomb" stuff" was taking attention away from the upcoming election and that critics were wrongly blaming him.

"Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful", Brennan wrote.

President Donald Trump says he's trying to be nice as he criticizes Sen.

John Miller, the New York City Police Department's deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism, used the example of the response to the bomb that targeted Soros on Monday.

The FBI said the packages found so far had shared characteristics, including manila envelopes with bubble-wrapped interiors.

Ms Wasserman Shultz was the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, but resigned from her position after the release of DNC emails during the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign.

An FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies "will continue to work to identity and arrest whosoever is responsible for sending these packages", FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement.

Devices are pieces of pipe with white powder. Cory Booker of New Jersey, had been recovered in Florida.

Reports suggest that a suspicious package containing a "device" has been found addressed to the White House.

Authorities responded early Thursday to a suspicious package that had been sent toactor-director Robert De Niro at a building in Lower Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood.


On Packages Sent to Clinton and ObamaAccording to the Secret Service, both packages were identified during routine mail screening procedures. Biden said last week that the president may not "know what he's doing" and coddles dictators. Soros has called Trump's presidency "dangerous".

The US Secret Service intercepted packages addressed to Obama at his Washington home and to Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee for president, at her home in NY state.

Some packages included photographs of the intended recipients marked with a red "x", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

The list of possible targets began with Soros, then grew to include Obama, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and former attorney general Eric Holder Jr.

Trump, during an appearance at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, didn't mention CNN or any of the officials targeted by the device.

Later at a rally in Wisconsin, he urged unity.

"Don't let the terrorists win", he said. "Have you ever seen this?"

"We have to come together, and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America". "This egregious conduct is abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans".

Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., who was severely wounded in a 2017 shooting that targeted Republican members of Congress on a suburban baseball field, wrote on Twitter that he had experienced "first-hand the effects of political violence" and said that as a nation "we must agree that this is a risky path and it can not become the new normal".

Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi said Mr Trump's words "rang hollow" in light of the President's recent praise of a Republican congressman who body-slammed a reporter. Footage showed officials in Plantation towing away a van with stickers that featured images of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

The White House condemned the bomb scares, and in a strongly-worded statement, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said: "We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures".

WANG: Well, the source we spoke to - our colleague Ryan Lucas - did confirm that it does resemble other suspicious packages that have been discovered this week.

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, was shot and killed by police after he opened fire on congressional Republicans practicing for their annual charity baseball game against Democrats in 2017. Sciutto and Harlow continued their reporting from the sidewalks of NY.
