Police Investigate Suspicious Package Addressed to Robert De Niro in Tribeca

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

They said the devices were similar to the pipe bombs sent this week to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and CNN television. The station said a maintenance worker at the building called police after seeing the news from Wednesday and remembering that he had handled a similar package the day before.

Investigators found three more pipe bombs: one sent to actor Robert De Niro and the others to former Vice President Joe Biden.

A WNBC reporter who was on the scene tweeted that numerous surrounding streets had been closed. The five packages discovered Tuesday and Wednesday had a similar return address: That of Democratic Rep. FBI Public Affairs Specialist Dave Fitz told CNN agents were "responding with our law enforcement partners to a US Postal facility in DE".

The wave of suspected bombs on Wednesday and Thursday targeted well-known Democratic Party figures and critics of Trump as a manhunt intensified for a serial bomber less than two weeks before congressional elections on November 6.

A series of pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton has deepened political tensions and fears two weeks before national midterm elections. The one addressed to Holder ended up at the Sunrise, Fla., office because its address to Holder was incorrect, officials said.

President Donald Trump said that these threats "have no place in America".

However, authorities warn they might not have found them all yet.

That person, who has a background in law enforcement, recalled seeing a similar package at the film center mailroom earlier and reported it to police. In other words, the lawmakers suggest Trump's words do not mean much because he supports violence in other ways.

The former state secretary said "we are fine" at a Florida fundraiser.

Phelps, a doctor and former head of the Australian Medical Association, said the result should count as a warning to lawmakers. Greens MP Adam Bandt said an election should be called and "the sooner we turf out this rotten government, the better".

"Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself", Trump said.

Last week, Trump, who joined other Republicans in accusing Democrats of encouraging "mob" tactics, heaped praise on a Montana congressman who assaulted a reporter in 2017.

All the targets are frequently maligned by right-wing critics.

On Wednesday, authorities were at Biden's home in Greenville, Delaware after a suspicious package addressed to him was intercepted in Washington, D.C., say sources.

Authorities found bombs this week intended for several top Democrats: the Clintons, Obama, Biden, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters and former Attorney General Eric Holder. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose return address was on it.

UPDATE (8:20 a.m.): CBS New York is reporting that the Time Warner building in New York City has been evacuated after another possible explosive was found in the mail room.

The first was found near the home of billionaire businessman George Soros, a major Democratic Party donor.

News reports that the package en route to De Niro, a vocal Trump critic who recently hurled F-bombs at the president during an awards speech, was discovered at his Manhattan office building. Those contained "potentially destructive devices", according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. An official said it was suspected to have been delivered earlier this week.
