Suspicious packages sent to Biden, De Niro brings total to 10

FILE Hillary Clinton

Former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert De Niro are the latest critics of President Donald Trump to be targeted by suspected pipe bombs following a wave of similar devices sent to top Democrats this week.

It's unclear if this package is similar in nature to others addressed to prominent Democrats and to the CNN offices in NY on Wednesday.

Authorities swept Biden's Greenville, Del., home Wednesday and found nothing suspicious, the Delaware News Journal reported.

As Trump was tweeting, NY authorities were removing a suspicious package addressed to actor - and frequent Trump critic - Robert De Niro at a building in Lower Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood.

The package intended for Biden was discovered at a postal facility in facility in New Castle, Delaware - Delaware is Biden's home state - NBC News reported Thursday morning.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents say they have intercepted a suspicious package intended for former Vice President Joe Biden, after a morning raid on a post office in New Castle, Delaware.

Sources told CBS News the package appeared to be from the same sender who targeted former USA presidents and other prominent Democrats earlier this week.

The packages also went to former CIA Director John Brennan (in care of CNN in New York) and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

None of the nine confirmed devices exploded but authorities stepped up their manhunt for the would-be serial bomber, with crucial congressional elections less than two weeks away in what has become a contentious campaign season.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo yesterday said a device had been sent to his office in Manhattan, but it was unrelated to the mail bombs.

All of the targets are frequently maligned by right-wing critics.

"We will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice, hopefully very quickly", Trump said.

The New York Police Department is responding to a report of a suspicious package received at a non-residential building in the Tribeca neighborhood of Lower Manhattan.

President Trump addressed the suspicious packages, many of which were found throughout the day on October 24, during his speech at a campaign rally in Mosinee, Wisconsin.

There has been no claim of responsibility. None of the seven bombs detonated, and nobody was hurt as authorities in New York, Washington, D.C., Florida and California seized the suspicious packages.

US President Donald Trump has called on the media to stop their "endless hostility" and "false attacks" in comments addressing a number of pipe bombs sent earlier in the day to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. "If it's an electrical system, the wires, batteries, battery holders, switch. how the device was meant to explode and the components associated with that, what we call a defusing system", he explained. At least three of the packages sent on Wednesday contained similar pipe bombs, and all gave Wasserman Schultz' office as their return address. In other words, the lawmakers suggest Trump's words do not mean much because he supports violence in other ways.

Still, as news broke of the suspicious package at the De Niro-linked building, Trump tweeted the media must "clean up it's act, FAST!"

Former FBI agent James Gagliano shared Prokupecz's analysis and said that "we are not out of the woods in the sense there may be other packages out there yet to be discovered". But Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer of NY and Nancy Pelosi of California said such words "ring hollow" when coming from Trump.
