Pipe Bombs Sent To Hillary Clinton & Other Democrats

The FBI and other federal agencies are investigating after at least seven suspected pipe bombs were sent to the homes and office buildings of prominent Democrats, CNN, and a leading critic of President Donald Trump in a domestic terrorism incident that drew a massive law enforcement response across the US.

The Secret Service intercepted a manila envelope addressed to Hillary Clinton’s home in Westchester County, New York. Officials found a similar bomb addressed to former President Obama in Washington, DC, early Wednesday.

Hours later, after 9 a.m., a suspicious package containing a “live explosive device” and white powder was sent to the New York City building that holds offices of CNN — a constant target of Trump’s anger — which led to an evacuation, authorities said.

The packages are all similar in appearance and contain “potentially destructive devices,” the FBI said in a statement Wednesday, noting that they are being sent to the agency’s lab in Quantico, Virginia, for analysis. The FBI emphasized that there may have been additional packages mailed to other locations. Full Story

Number of suspicious Pipe Bomb Packages rise

At least 10 suspicious packages were sent to prominent Democrats and critics of President Trump. The latest was addressed to actor Robert De Niro and found in lower Manhattan on Thursday morning.

Other apparent bombs were sent to former President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan. None of the devices have exploded, and nobody was hurt.

The FBI suspected the packages are linked and warned there could be more. In a speech Wednesday night, Mr. Trump called acts or threats of political violence “an attack on democracy itself.”

But he tweeted Thursday morning that so-called “Fake News” is causing anger in our society and said, “Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!” Full Story
