Packages to Biden, De Niro seized, similar to earlier bombs

039;Potential explosive devices' sent to Obama and Hillary Clinton Secret Service says Bill and Hillary Clinton stand in the driveway of their home in Chappaqua N.Y. on Jan. 6 2000

While the first explosive device was found Monday - at the NY home of George Soros, a billionaire activist known to fund pro-democracy and liberal political groups - it was not until early Wednesday that it became apparent investigators were hunting a serial bomber.

Former CIA director John Brennan and ex-attorney general Eric Holder joined former President Barack Obama, past presidential challenger Hillary Clinton and billionaire Democratic philanthropist George Soros as would-be recipients of packages containing what authorities described as crude pipe bombs. A fundraising email attacking CNN sent out as the story unfolded deepened that perception.

"It appears majority if not all of them have gone through the mail", an official told the paper. The bomb squad was investigating the package discovered at Wasserman Schultz's office, a local police spokesman said.

There has been no claim of responsibility and no known arrests. That device was one of 10 mailed to prominent Democrats and other public figures who have been critical of the Trump administration.

"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", Brennan said.

But Trump told the Wisconsin crowd that he was trying to "behave" and "be nice" and none of his usual, red-meat crowd pleasers directed at Waters, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Clinton or others were part of his repertoire Wednesday night. "Clean up your act.try to act Presidential". "We want all sides to come together in peace and harmony". Debbie Wasserman Schultz, also a Democrat, by way of a fraudulent return address. Each bore a computer-printed address label and six "Forever" postage stamps.

The New York Police Department also tweeted Friday morning that it was investigating a suspicious package, and a law enforcement official told CNN the package was at a postal facility on West 52nd Street in New York. At least one of the devices appeared to contain projectiles, including shards of glass.

Similar packages addressed to Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama on their way to Chappaqua, New York, where Clinton lives with former President Bill Clinton and to Washington, where Obama lives with his wife, Michelle.

One of these parcels we evacuated the building the Time Warner Center in NY, where the office of the TV channel CNN.

Evidence technicians will try and recover possible traces of DNA and fingerprints from the components and the envelopes that contained the bombs. The Secret Service, however, later said it had only intercepted the two packages intended for Obama and Clinton and called reports of a package headed for the White House "incorrect".

A police bomb squad removed still another from CNN's NY office, which was evacuated.

Neither bomb included a note, law enforcement officials said.

All of the targets are frequently maligned by right-wing critics. "The president, and especially the White House press secretary, should understand that their words matter. Thus far they have shown no comprehension of that".

On Thursday, during a campaign trip to suburban Buffalo, Biden said: "We've got to get off this hate machine".

Republicans in the state have been growing increasingly nervous about the prospects of holding onto the governor's office, let alone picking up a Senate seat held by a well-positioned Democratic incumbent.

After first calling for "unity" and civil discourse on Wednesday, Trump lashed out again Thursday at the "hateful" media, while his supporters accused Democrats of unfairly suggesting the president was to blame for the bomb scare.

"He should not be beating the tom-toms of anger and animosity and war", said the former Central Intelligence Agency chief, whose security clearance was revoked by Trump after he criticized the president's summit earlier this year with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Soros has called Trump's presidency "dangerous".
