"I'm not saying - and I don't believe - that the president is doing this on goal, but he is doing it for his own political imperatives, especially at a time of upcoming midterm elections", Bokhari said in an interview. The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Two additional packages were addressed to Obama's former vice president, Joe Biden, often rumored as a potential Democratic presidential candidate for 2020, in DE, the Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed.

The package had been received in the general mailroom on Wednesday, according to a law enforcement official. The official said the devices were made from PVC pipe and covered with black tape.

We declare here that the blame for these acts of terrorism and for the growing fear in the country rests with President Trump himself.
Law enforcement officials said all the packages were similar: manila envelopes with bubble-wrap interior bearing six stamps and the return address of Florida Rep.
Details suggested a pattern - that the items were packaged in manila envelopes, addressed to prominent Trump critics and carried USA postage stamps. That means FBI investigators can "look for patterns such as the device, the technical expertise, the method of mailing, a whole host of great, rich forensic evidence that can be gathered". Authorities have said nothing about possible motives or suspects.
The packages addressed to Biden were intercepted at DE mail facilities in New Castle and Wilmington, according to a law enforcement official who, like others, wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The package bears similarities to the ones that have recently been sent to the homes of Bill and Hilary Clinton and billionaire businessman George Soros, as well as the office of Barack Obama.

"America should unite against all political violence".
In the package police found an envelope with white powder and a working explosive device. Kamala Harris, according to a law enforcement official.
