NY police respond to 'suspicious package' in Manhattan

NY police respond to 'suspicious package' in Manhattan

Like earlier targets, both Biden and De Niro have been sharply critical of Trump.

The exterior of one of the suspicious packages sent to multiple locations in the USA, appears in this handout photo provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, October 24, 2018. Bernie Sanders, an Independent from Vermont, was responsible for one of his supporters shooting up a GOP baseball practice a year ago in Virginia. There is speculation that De Niro's political views may be the impetus for his being targeted. Officials searched those images overnight and found several other suspicious packages, a law enforcement official said. "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"

"Stop blaming others. Look in the mirror. BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence", Brennan said.

A total of 10 suspicious packages have been intercepted since Monday, with recipients including former president Barack Obama, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and billionaire philanthropist George Soros.

An 8th suspicious package was reported at a Tribeca building, the morning after a threatening string of similar packages were sent to top Democrats. The NYPD said an envelope containing white powder was found as part of the device's original packaging.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly and therefore talked to the AP on condition of anonymity.

The device at De Niro's restaurant has been taken away for safe disposal, and appears to be connected to pipe bombs sent to Democrats yesterday, CNN reports. Law enforcement officials are trying to track down another suspicious package sent to former Vice President Joe Biden, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation says it's possible additional packages were mailed to other locations.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on the condition of anonymity.

CNN president Jeff Zucker, whose employees were forced to evacuate their NY bureau on Wednesday by the discovery of the pipe bomb in the mail room, slammed the White House for its "complete lack of understanding" about "the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media".

None of the bombs have detonated and nobody has been hurt in any of the incidents.

On Thursday, he blamed the media for much of the "anger" in society.

Along with all the people who wished Teddy, many brand and companies also pitched in to make the day special for the little boy. National Basketball Association team the Phoenix Suns invited Teddy and his family to watch a match against the LA Lakers.

CNN reported the package sent to De Niro had similar markings to the pipe bomb sent to the network yesterday. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that is beyond description".

Officials transport a suspicious package from Manhattan to a secure facility in the Bronx on October 25, 2018.

The NYPD bomb squad responded and examined the device under an X-ray. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee who was accused by Clinton rivals of secretly helping the party's eventual presidential nominee.

The package found at CNN was addressed to John Brennan, a fierce critic of Trump and a former director of intelligence under Obama.

According to Google Maps, the site is home to the Tribeca Grill, owned by De Niro, and the Tribeca Film Center, described by the center as the "realized vision of De Niro and Jane Rosenthal". Police received a report shortly after 4 a.m. ET, he said.

The Manhattan offices of CNN were also evacuated when another suspicious package was sent to the news station.

"We certainly don't know whether they are here or elsewhere in the country", New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on CNN on Thursday morning.

The Secret Service also caught another package before it got to the Washington, D.C. home of the Obamas.

An explosive device was found at CNN's NY officers at the Time Warner Center on Columbus Circle on October 24, 2018.

None of the nine confirmed devices exploded but authorities stepped up their manhunt for the would-be serial bomber, with crucial congressional elections less than two weeks away in what has become a contentious campaign season. The packages were also stuffed with shards of glass.

De Niro, 75, has been vocal in his criticism of the Trump administration and was branded a "very low IQ individual" by President Trump on Twitter in June.
