Latest suspicious packages sent to De Niro, Biden

A Bomb Was Sent to Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Grill

The FBI said a total of seven suspicious packages were sent in New York, Washington and Florida, including to Obama's attorney general Eric Holder and two to Maxine Waters, a California lawmaker.

The FBI confirms the packages addressed to Biden looked similar to these. The Bomb Squad placed the package in a containment vehicle and brought it to its detonation facility in the Bronx.

USA authorities pressed ahead Thursday with an all-out probe into who was behind pipe bombs sent to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, other top Democrats, and CNN, all of them hate figures for supporters of President Donald Trump.

Wasserman Schultz was chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee until she was forced to resign in 2016 over complaints that she was favoring Hillary Clinton over her Democratic primary rival, Sen.

Soros was among those sent suspicious packages by the suspected serial bomber.

The latest packages, addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden, are similar to eight others found earlier this week. Holder's package ended up rerouted and delivered to the Wasserman Schultz return address.

Gov. John Carney's office did not have a comment.

Ron Lowy, a former lawyer for Sayoc who now represents his family, told CNN he believed Sayoc was left emotionally scarred as a boy when his father left the home, developing an identity crisis in which he ultimately embraced Trump as a kind of father figure.

"We want all sides to come together in peace and harmony", he said in Wisconsin.

A federal law enforcement source told Reuters the devices were thought to have been fashioned from bomb-making designs widely available on the internet.

George Soros: A suspicious package found Monday appeared to be an explosive device targeting the billionaire investor, philanthropist and Democratic donor.

The New York Police Department is investigating a suspicious package in Tribeca, CNN reported on Thursday, airing footage of law enforcement in the New York City neighborhood.

A police bomb squad removed the package addressed to Brennan from CNN's NY office, which was evacuated.

The man suspected of mailing at least 14 pipe bombs to some of U.S. President Donald Trump's leading critics was arrested on Friday in Florida on federal charges in a case echoing the rancor of one of the most toxic election campaigns in decades.

City in South Carolina's 'Golden Strip' sells winning lottery ticket
The six winning numbers were printed on a ticket sold at the store off Lee Vaughn Road, about a 6.5km drive from city hall. They added, "Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment!" He entered the state's Mega Millions pool with 141 other people.

An initial examination shows they are are rudimentary but functional, and have similar construction.

Law enforcement officials said all the packages were similar.

Ronald Lowy, a Miami attorney, said Sayoc showed no ability at the time to back up his threat with any bomb-making expertise.

The suspicious devices are on their way to the FBI's crime lab in Quantico, Va.

Most of the packages were mailed in manila envelopes with bubble wrap interiors.

The actions, which caused panicked building evacuations and reports of additional explosives that later proved unfounded, are bound to add to fears that overheated rhetoric could lead to deadly violence as the parties engage in bitter fights over immigration, the Supreme Court and the treatment of women. At the NY briefing, authorities confirmed that at least some of the packages were distributed through the USA mail, and cautioned that there could be additional devices in the postal system.

The spree began Monday with a device found at the NY home of billionaire liberal donor George Soros. "There are a multitude of more sophisticated methodologies that would have worked if they really wanted this to work".

The targets of the bombs were some of the figures most frequently criticised by Mr Trump.

"Every American needs to be against political terrorism".

Those "engaged in the political arena" must "stop treating political opponents as being morally defective", he said. Then he resumed his attacks on Democrats, including one falsely claiming they are allowing immigrants to enter the county illegally.

After first calling for unity at the White House event, Trump lamented partisan attacks against him and again pointed at the media.

"A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News", he said in a morning Tweet. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description".

"Unfortunately, I think Donald Trump, too often, has helped to incite some of these feelings of anger, if not violence, when he points to acts of violence or also talks about swinging at somebody from the press, the media", he said.
