Targets of suspicious packages in the United States

  • Mail bombs sent to 5 prominent Democrats including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton CNN offices evacuated

Over in DE, two packages addressed to former VP Biden surfaced at separate postal facilities. The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

On Thursday, without directly referencing the explosive devices, Trump again blamed the media for the "anger" in society. Clean up your act try to act Presidential.

At a Wisconsin rally Wednesday night Trump called attention to "how nice I'm behaving tonight" but on Thursday morning he attacked the media.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Thursday that "across the administration, we condemn the actions that led to these activities in the strongest possible terms and are determined to make sure that we get to the bottom of it and justice is done". "Have you ever seen this?" The devices were made from PVC pipe and covered with black tape.

Wednesday's incidents came two days after a bomb was found in the mailbox of billionaire George Soros, one of the biggest Democratic donors who has become a top target of right-wing conspiracy theories. The mailing address and return address have been edited out of the photo at source.

The agency also intercepted packages sent to other senior Democrats, including former President Barack Obama as well as California congresswoman Maxine Waters.

At the White House, Trump vowed Wednesday that "we will spare no resources or expense" to pursue the perpetrator.

Furthermore, bomb containment units have reached the postal facility in DE where the package has been located. "This egregious conduct is abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans".

Other Republican leaders said the same.

But Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer of NY and Nancy Pelosi of California said such words "ring hollow" when coming from Mr Trump. "Another source said the package was addressed to De Niro and added that it had the same stamps and return address, for ex-Democratic National Committee chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, as the others".

The FBI has sent those devices to the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, for analysis.

All right, we're learning more this hour from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about a number of suspicious packages that were addressed to Democratic political figures this week.

Former CIA Director John Brennan said Wednesday that President Donald Trump's rhetoric is "un-American" and has "emboldened individuals to take matters into their own hands" in his first public remarks following a bomb addressed to him being sent to CNN.

John Brennan: The "live explosive device" was delivered by courier to CNN offices in NY. The package was addressed to Brennan, who is an outspoken Trump critic and has appeared on the network. But in the past, he has hurled some of his harshest insults at the same people who were sent letter bombs.

The actor also said he wanted to punch the former Apprentice host "in the face".

The official says it has similar markings and characteristics as the packages containing bombs sent to other prominent Democrats.

O'Neill told reporters there are no current or credible threats that law enforcement is aware of.

Actor Robert De Niro and former vice-president Joe Biden are the latest targets in a series of suspected mail bombs being sent to prominent Democrats.
