Suspicious packages sent to former Vice President Biden, Robert De Niro

Suspicious packages sent to Biden, De Niro brings total to 10 Robert De Niro sent suspicious package in New York

Right now, investigators are examining the devices, none of which have detonated. Officials removed the device from the scene.

De Niro, 75, has been nominated for seven Academy Awards and has won two.

UPDATE (8:45 a.m.): Secret Service says an earlier CNN report that a package addressed to the White House was intercepted is incorrect.

A suspicious package sent to Robert De Niro in Tribeca resembles others sent to major Democratic political figures and CNN.

The list of bombing targets spread from New York, Delaware and Washington, D.C., to Florida and California. Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, U.S. Rep. Both are associated with the actor and filmmaker Robert De Niro, who has been a critic of President Donald Trump.

After initially calling for unity, Trump went on to blame the media for the surge of pipe bombs sent to high-profile Democrats. At least three of the packages sent on Wednesday contained similar pipe bombs, and all gave Wasserman Schultz' office as their return address.

Mrs Clinton thanked the Secret Service and said she and her family "are fine".

All the people who were targeted, including former US President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder, who served as attorney general under Mr Obama, are frequently maligned by right-wing critics. The one addressed to Holder ended up at the Sunrise, Fla., office because its address to Holder was incorrect, officials said. It matches the description of those sent to the other officials. Additionally, CNN evacuated its Manhattan headquarters after an explosive device was found at the news network's Time Warner Center offices. The former Central Intelligence Agency director frequently appears on CNN.

The devices all were sent to an Federal Bureau of Investigation lab in Virginia to be studied.

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

Federal law enforcement authorities looking into the possibility of a possible explosive device addressed to Biden swept his DE home Wednesday but nothing was found.

Like most of the other packages, the return address was that of Democratic US Rep. It is unclear at this time if the packaged was addressed to DeNiro himself. Two packages were sent to Waters, who Mr Trump has called "an extraordinarily low IQ person".

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

Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered "100 additional National Guard soldiers and directing State law enforcement to double security at vital assets across NY, including LaGuardia and JFK, mass transit systems, and bridges and tunnels".

A wide swath of investigators from NY to California to D.C.to Florida are devoted to the case, which (miraculously) has not yet injured anyone, although as CNN's Jake Tapper noted on Twitter, the devices within these packages "were rudimentary but functional ... Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that".

On Thursday morning, law enforcement officials said they believe they've found the Biden package.

Authorities said on Wednesday the pipe bombs were packed with shards of glass and were intercepted. Each package had six Forever stamps on the envelope as well.

"Let's say for example, that maybe these bombs aren't operational".

The package was addressed to the Hollywood actor and was similar to the one sent to CNN and others on Wednesday, sources told Fox 5 News in New York City.
