Even the CNN New York office in the Time Warner Center was evacuated after a packet of an explosive device, addressed to former CIA director John Brennan, was discovered, city and local law enforcement officials said.
In addition, sources told CNN that a suspected package destined for the California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters intercepted at a congress post screening facility in Maryland; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo got what he said was a unit at his Manhattan office; and the San Diego Union Tribune evacuated its building after the “suspected look-out” had been appointed.
The development, which developed rapidly and continued steadily in the afternoon, stirred up fear and confusion and promptly invited questions about the motives to those in charge. The recipients of the packages are all prominent targets for right criticism and, in many cases, by President Donald Trump himself.
“This is clearly a terrorist act that seeks to undermine our free press and leaders in this country through acts of violence,” said New York Mayor Bill de Blasio at an afternoon news conference.
CNN, referring to a law enforcement official initially told a suspected package that contained a pipe bomb addressed to the White House intercepted at Joint Base Bolling in Washington, DC. However, the secret service later said that it had only intercepted the two packages destined for Obama and Clinton and called
reports of a package that led to the White House “incorrect.”
Trump says “no resources will be saved
Trump promised Wednesday afternoon that” our government’s full weight has been introduced to perform this survey. “
“We will not save any resources or costs in this effort,” Trump said on top of his remarks at a White House opioid registration broadcast event. He said he just finished a compilation with the FBI, the Ministry of Justice, the Home Security Department and Secret Service.
President – who recently called his political opponents “evil” – demanded unanimity in his comments and said that “we must come together and send a very clear, strong, unambiguous message that threats or acts of political violence have no place in the United States.”
“This incredible behavior is disgusting for all we love and holy as Americans,” said Trump, adding, “We are very angry, upset, unhappy about what we witnessed this morning, and we are getting to the bottom of it.”  His remarks
Apparatus seems to be similarly constructed
Bryan Paamann, a FBI agent responsible for the fight against terrorism in New York, said the units appeared to be bomb bombs. A law enforcement official told for CNN that the first survey of all devices shows that they are constructed in the same way. At least one of the devices appeared to contain projectiles, including glass screens. The devices are rudimentary but functional.
A law enforcement source said the device found in Time Warner Center’s postroom similar to those directed at Obama, Clinton and billionaire investors and the great democratic donor George Soros, who upset Trump, Pence and other GOP leaders condemn suspicious devices sent to Hillary Clinton, Obama, CNN “data-src-mini =” // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19 -time-warner-center-1024-small-169.jpg “data-src-xsmall =” // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19-time-warner-center-1024-medium- plus-169.jpg “data-src-small =” http://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19-time-warner-center-1024-large-169.jpg “data src -medium = “// cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19-time-warner-center-1024-exlarge-169.jpg” data-src-large = “// cdn.cnn.com /cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19-time-warner-center-1024-super-169.jpg “data-src-full16x9 =” // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19- time-warner-center-1024-full-169.jpg “data-src-mini1x1 =” // cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19-time-warner-center-1024-small-11 .jpg “data-demand-load =” not-loaded “data-eq-pts =” mini: 0, xsmall: 221, small: 308, medium: 461, large: 781 “src =” data: i Trump, Pence, and other GOP leaders condemn suspected entities sent to Hillary Clinton Obama, CNN ” class=”media__image” src=”http://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181024120519-19-time-warner-center-1024-large-169.jpg”/>
A suspicious package sent to the Democratic Republic’s office in Florida. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was intended for former lawyer Eric Holder but had the wrong address, two law enforcement sources said. It was returned to the Democratic Congress woman because it was the return mark on the package, said the sources and added that it was the same return address for packages sent to Obama and Clinton.
There is no information suggesting that she sent packages. The bomb group examined the package discovered at Wasserman Schultz’s office, said a local police spokesman. It was not immediately clear if the package contains a device similar to the others discovered around the country.
The Soro Package also had the return address of Wasserman Schultz, a former party president, a law enforcement source and a federal source informed of the inquiry said Wednesday. The Soro packet was considered to have been placed in a mailbox instead of mailed, said a separate law enforcement source.
Neither Obama nor Clinton got the package sent to them or threatened to receive them, said the secretary. They were discovered under “routine post-screening routines as potentially explosive devices and handled correctly,” the agency said in a statement.
The package destined for Obama was intercepted in Washington, DC, and the one intended for Clinton was told to her in Chappaqua residence in Westchester County, New York, on Tuesday, the authorities said.
