US Secret Service Intercepts Suspicious Packages Addressed to Obama, Clintons

U.S. President Donald Trump describing them as "despicable" and called for solidarity among Americans.

"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.

Trump still assails Clinton at rallies while supporters chant "lock her up" - two years after he defeated her. A security guard at the Clinton Foundation's Midtown Manhattan offices said the explosive device was addressed to Clinton's home in Westchester, not her offices.

"We're all behaving very well, and hopefully we can keep it that way", he insisted. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"

"Let's get along", he said. "Have you ever seen this?"

New York Gov. Cuomo said the two suspicious devices found in New York City shouldn't stop people from going about their business as normal.

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.

The discovery of the packages comes a day after another package containing an explosive device was found outside the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros at his home in suburban NY.

All of the packages had the return address of Democratic Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz. "Never, never", Wasserman Schultz said at a campaign event north of Miami on Thursday night.

In a statement, the White House condemned "the attempted violent attacks". "This egregious conduct is abhorrent".




Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., who was severely wounded in a 2017 shooting that targeted Republican members of Congress on a suburban baseball field, wrote on Twitter that he had experienced "first-hand the effects of political violence" and said that as a nation "we must agree that this is a risky path and it can not become the new normal". "Make no mistake", NY police chief James O'Neill told a news conference, refusing to divulge any leads investigators may have. 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.

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

The device sent to CNN was contained in a manila envelope addressed to John Brennan, who was the Central Intelligence Agency director in the Obama administration and is a harsh critic of Trump. Hours earlier Trump had complained via tweet that "this "bomb" stuff" was taking attention away from the upcoming election and that critics were wrongly blaming him.

"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.

CNN's president on Wednesday denounced the White House for its "total and complete lack of understanding" of the consequences of attacks against the media after the cable news network's NY office and several prominent Democrats were sent pipe bombs. The Soros package was believed to have been placed in a mailbox rather than mailed, a separate law enforcement source said. A similar device bound for California Democrat Maxine Waters, another popular Trump target, was intercepted at a congressional mail facility in Maryland.
