Additional 'Suspicious Packages' Sent to Joe Biden, Robert De Niro

Former US vice president Joe Biden and Hollywood megastar Robert De Niro were the latest targets Thursday of a spree of suspicious packages and pipe bombs sent to opponents of Donald Trump as the US president lashed out at the media for stirring up "anger". The suspicious package sent to CNN headquarters in NY on Wednesday was addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, another prominent Trump critic.

Former CIA Director John Brennan, prominent Democratic Party donor George Soros and California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, were also targets of packages.

Meanwhile in New York City, authorities removed a package from a building housing De Niro's offices and have taken it to an NYPD facility for further investigation.

The FBI confirmed Thursday morning that two packages were addressed to Biden and one was addressed to De Niro, and that they were similar in appearance to others.

"We need to come together and send one very clear unmistakable message that threats or acts of political violence of any kind have no place in America".

Police have sent the package to a secure facility in the Bronx, New York Police Department Commissioner James O'Neill said on Twitter. All packages had a return address of "DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ" [sic] in Florida. Suspicious package found outside office of Pa.

According to a police report, Kelly allegedly said, "I'm going to go to my vehicle and get my AK-47 and spray this place". In addition to his release, NFL Network reported more details of Kelly's arrest and how the team responded to the news.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the attempted attacks were "clearly an act of terrorism". There is no information to suggest she sent the packages.

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.

Thursday morning, Wilmington police investigated a suspicious package found on the 1500 block of Lancaster Avenue. Police quickly rushed to the offices' location to evacuate the building, which was empty at the time, and inspect the package. The targeted Democrats have all been verbally targeted by Trump in the past, as has CNN, which he's slammed various times for delivering "fake news".

A suspicious package has been found at a premises in NY connected to actor Robert De Niro.

The packages sent to all but Biden are in manila envelopes with bubble wrap interior, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

President Trump first responded on Wednesday by telling the media to end the "constant negative and oftentimes false attacks".
