More Bombs Directed at Democrats, Trump Critics

A law enforcement official says a package addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden appears similar to packages containing bombs sent to prominent Democrats and has been intercepted at a DE mail facility.

Police are examining a suspicious package addressed to actor-director Robert De Niro at a building in Lower Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood, two law enforcement sources said early Thursday.

The package which was discovered by a worker in the building that also houses the TriBeCa Film Center was removed by the NYPD bomb squad and placed into a containment vehicle that left the area at about 6:30 a.m. X-rays showed that it contained a device like those sent in the other incidents.

On Thursday, a police bomb squad removed a similar-looking device, also treated as explosives, that was sent to double Oscar-winner De Niro at the TriBeCa Productions company he co-founded in NY.

A suspicious package addressed to Waters was intercepted at a House mail facility, two sources told CBS News.

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen made the announcement Wednesday, saying federal facilities are following enhanced security procedures.

Officials transport a suspicious package from Manhattan to a secure facility in the Bronx on October 25, 2018. "We condemn the actions that led to these activities in the strongest possible terms and are determined to make sure we get to the bottom of it and justice is done".

"I have been in direct contact with the FBI and other law enforcement officials who are working tirelessly on this investigation, and I am grateful for their efforts to keep us safe".

The tweet Thursday by former Central Intelligence Agency head John Brennan came shortly after Trump tweeted that much of the anger in society is caused by the "purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media".

NYPD is preparing to put highway closures into place to move the package in their total containment vessel, otherwise known as their bomb truck.

The FBI says the packages are consistent with the ones sent to other leading Democrats.

John Brennan: The "live explosive device" was delivered by courier to CNN offices in NY.

The address is linked to the Tribeca Film Center and Tribeca Grill, according to Google Maps, but the packaged was located in an office on one of the higher floors of the building, said cops.

No one has claimed responsibility for sending the explosive devices and the Federal Bureau of Investigation is urging people with information to come forward.

The explosive devices were packed in envelopes with bubble-wrap interiors bearing six stamps and the return address of Florida Rep.

"Stop blaming others. Look in the mirror", Brennan tweeted.

At a Wisconsin rally Wednesday night Trump, who has denounced the media as an "enemy of the people", called attention to "how nice I'm behaving tonight" but on Thursday morning he attacked the media.

A similar package was found at the home of liberal hedge fund billionaire George Soros on Monday.

"Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, (and) encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful", Brennan wrote on Twitter to the President.

Trump yesterday morning blamed the media for provoking anger in Americans - but did not directly reference the bombs.

Earlier Wednesday, there was heightened law enforcement presence at the Chappaqua, New York home of Bill and Hillary Clinton after a device was intercepted at a nearby facility where the Secret Service screens their mail. "BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence".
