Another Suspicious Package Found Targeting Robert De Niro

Another Suspicious Package Found Targeting Robert De Niro

The package had the same return address as the others, Rep.

Two businesses are listed at the address: the Tribeca Film Festival, and the Tribeca Grill. The actor-director hurled profanities at the president in June at the Tony Awards ceremony.

As he introduced Bruce Springsteen, he said the following: 'I'm going to say one thing: F*ck Trump.

Authorities discovered suspicious packages sent to former vice president Joe Biden and actor Robert de Niro on Thursday, a day after several high-profile Democrats and critics of US President Donald Trump were targeted with similar devices.

All the packages were removed, and there were no reports of injuries. Two packages were sent to Waters, who Mr Trump has called "an extraordinarily low IQ person".

These latest discoveries bring the number of total suspicious packages found since Monday up to 10.

"The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screen procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such".

The Secret Service launched an investigation to find the source of the packages.

CBS News reported early Thursday that an explosive device was also sent to former Vice President Joe Biden.

"We are fine, thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service", Clinton said.

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

He made no direct reference to the device found at the restaurant, or any of the earlier incidents.

He also called the meddling "a major obstacle" to achieving agreement on issues where the two countries have a shared interest. Withdrawing from the treaty would allow the USA to develop a missile similar to the one that Russian Federation has tested.

The images of two devices - one found Monday at the home Soros and one sent to CNN's NY office on Wednesday - had the appearance of real devices that would cause serious bodily injury or death, said Ryan Morris, founder of Tripwire Operations Group, a company that provides explosives training to law enforcement and military officials. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, the sources said. CNN reported that the package was meant for former US Attorney General Eric Holder.

"We are responding to reports of a suspicious package in the vicinity of Greenwich and Franklin streets in Tribeca, Manhattan", said an NYPD statement on October 25.

A wide swath of investigators from NY to California to Florida are devoted to the case, which (miraculously) has not yet injured anyone, although as CNN's Jake Tapper noted on Twitter, the devices within these packages "were rudimentary but functional ..."

The suspicious parcels were intercepted before they could reach their intended recipients, who included former Attorney General Eric Holder and former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. Brennan appears on other cable and broadcast networks.

The devices are suspected to be pipe bombs.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio praised the "really quick-witted work of a security guard" at the production office "for the fact that nothing happened and no harm was done to anyone".

The news organisation's NY staff were evacuated. 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". "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that".

A New York City police bomb squad has recovered a suspicious package addressed to Robert De Niro.

Another package was addressed to U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., which was intercepted Wednesday night at a Los Angeles mail facility.

The package appears similar to a slew of parcels that were mailed to, among others, former President Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, California Rep. Maxine Waters and CNN's NY studios on Wednesday. "Those engaged in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as being defective", he said.

The package sent to CNN, which Trump has frequently derided for its coverage of him, contained an envelope of white powder that experts were analyzing, New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill said.
