On Wednesday, the discovery of a suspicious package addressed to NBC and MSNBC correspondent John Brennan found inside CNN's mailroom caused the evacuation of its NY offices.

A package address to Mr Biden was seized in a U.S. postal service building in Delaware on Thursday and in NY authorities are investigating a suspicious package sent to Tribeca Grill, a restaurant owned by actor Robert De Niro.

The attempted bomb attacks against Democratic officials, including former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as well as cable network CNN are front and center at the preshow of President Donald Trump's Wisconsin rally.

The New York offices of USA cable news channel CNN have been evacuated on Wednesday morning after a suspicious device was discovered in the building's mailroom.

Waters, who has become a liberal hero after she called for Trump's impeachment, said earlier Wednesday that the U.S. Capitol Police had intercepted a suspicious package sent to her D.C. congressional office. "The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice previous year".

"He'd be down [fast]", Trump said to laughter as part of a riff in which he praised a Republican congressman for body slamming a reporter.

Hollywood megastar Robert De Niro and former USA vice president Joe Biden were the latest targets in a spree of 10 devices and pipe bombs sent to opponents of Donald Trump, but a nationwide manhunt revealed no major public leads Thursday. We're investing that right now.

The 12th package, which was similar to the others, was addressed to both the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and to CNN, according to a law enforcement official. A DNA sample from a device intended for Obama similarly matched the suspect's DNA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

"Those engaged in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as being morally defective", Trump said, possibly referring to his critics rather than himself.

Wray declined to say whether the devices could have detonated, saying that investigators are "still trying to determine whether or not they were functional".

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

Package Containing 'Device' Found Addressed To The White House

The authorities are investigating these incidents and any potential link between them. Trump has repeatedly criticized CNN as "fake news" and disparaged the mainstream news media as an "enemy of the people".

Details suggested a pattern - that the items were packaged in manila envelopes, addressed to prominent Trump critics and carried USA postage stamps.

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.

New York Gov. Mario Cuomo was in the midst of the news conference outside the Time Warner Center when he disclosed that his office had also received a suspicious package - news he appeared to learn just moments before when a handler leaned in to give him a message.

Daniel Aaronson, an attorney who has represented Sayoc over the years, said none of his clients were "as polite and as courteous and as respectful to me" as Sayoc was.

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.

Waters, whom the president has denigrated as a "low-IQ individual", reported Wednesday afternoon that she was the target of a suspicious package. The Soros package was believed to have been placed in a mailbox rather than mailed, a separate law enforcement source said.

The US Secret Service said it recovered a single package addressed to Clinton in Westchester, a suburb north of Manhattan late on Tuesday.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders condemned the "terrorising acts" and said "anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law". Some were discovered in mail processing facilities.

Several of the devices were intercepted by the US Secret Service which meant that neither President Obama, nor President Clinton and his family were in danger of receiving the packages.
