Authorities find 2 packages intended for Biden as manhunt ensues

Authorities find 2 packages intended for Biden as manhunt ensues

A senior law enforcement source has told Spectrum News that a suspicious device was discovered at an address associated with actor Robert De Niro in TriBeCa section of NY on Thursday morning.

The package was removed from 375 Greenwich Street in Manhatta, an address that matches the Tribeca Film Center and Tribeca Grill Restaurant, CNN reported.

Over the years, De Niro has expressed his support of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and his utter distaste for Donald Trump. At the Tony Awards in June, the actor used an obscenity to insult the president. "I watched him last night and truly believe he may be 'punch-drunk, '" Trump said on Twitter, adding that De Niro fails to "realize the economy is the best it's ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country".

Authorities retrieved three more suspicious packages Thursday, two addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden in Delaware and one to Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro in Manhattan, officials said. The package has since been removed. The package, considered suspicious because of its similarities to the others, was misaddressed and returned to the sender; US Postal inspectors are working to locate the package.

Over the past few days, 8-9 suspicious packages have been found, addressed to prominent liberals or Democrats.

The devices all were sent to an Federal Bureau of Investigation lab in Virginia to be studied.

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

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

A CNN panel on Thursday warned that the crisis involving the serial bomber sending explosive devices to critics of President Donald Trump is far from over. CNN reported that the package was meant for former US Attorney General Eric Holder.

Investigators said they did a sweep of the home and found no suspicious packages. Similar to the other seven packages found earlier in the week, neither of the bombs detonated and no one was injured.

While addressing the terror scare during a rally on the evening of October 24, Trump failed to recognize any of the victims by name, simply referring to the Democrats who received suspicious packages as "former government officials".

"I want to make it clear that the people of New York City will not be intimidated".

The news organisation's NY staff were evacuated.

Trump, though, appeared to blame news media for some of the political divide.

"We will spare no resource or expense in this effort", Trump said.

Authorities are investigating suspicious packages sent to Vice President Joseph R. Biden and actor Robert DeNiro, an outspoken critic of President Trump.

In addition to its appearance, the package also had the same return address as the others: that of Democratic Rep.

This comes the day after a similar package was sent to Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama.

The White House said it condemned the attempted attacks, calling the act "despicable".

Trump's words didn't satisfy his political opponents, however. But Trump is facing criticism for his rhetoric against Democrats and the media over how his words could lead to violence against those he has attacked.
