A Bomb Was Sent to Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Grill

The package was addressed to actor Robert De Niro, a vocal critic of Trump, and has markings similar to the other pipe bomb packages recently mailed nationwide, two law enforcement sources told CNN.

The Secret Service said suspicious packages were addressed to Clinton in Westchester County, N.Y., and to Obama's residence in Washington, D.C.; those packages contained explosive devices that were similar to one that was found on Monday at the home of George Soros - a frequent contributor to Democratic and progressive causes.

A suspicious package addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden was found at a mail facility in New Castle County in DE, a federal law enforcement official told Reuters.

Police in New York City removed a suspicious package sent to a building owned by actor Robert De Niro early Thursday. Helicopter footage from the NBC affiliate in Philadelphia, Pa., showed a bomb squad member inspecting something with the help of a robot outside a postal facility.

Thursday morning, Wilmington police investigated a suspicious package found on the 1500 block of Lancaster Avenue.

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.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo yesterday said a device had been sent to his office in Manhattan, but it was unrelated to the mail bombs.

The targets were some of the figures most frequently criticised by Mr Trump, who still assails Mrs Clinton at rallies while supporters chant "lock her up".

A package containing a "live explosive device", according to police, received at the Time Warner Center which houses the CNN New York bureau, in New York City, is shown in this handout picture provided October 24, 2018. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description". There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Trump has repeatedly criticised CNN as "fake news" and disparaged the mainstream news media as an "enemy of the people".

The bomb squad removed the package and took it to a police facility in the Bronx at around 6:30 a.m.

In Texas, Trump speech takes far-right turn
I thought he got beaten badly in the debates. "I think he's a highly overrated guy", said President Trump . His comments came ahead of a rally supporting his 2016 Presidential rival Ted Cruz's Senate campaign.

Two packages were sent to California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. "All packages had a return address of "DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ" [sic] in Florida".

The device intended for de Niro, who received a loud ovation when he hurled an obscenity at Mr Trump at the Tony Awards last June, was sent to one of his properties in New York City.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement yesterday his agency would lead a Joint Terrorism Task Force of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to "continue to work to identity and arrest whosoever is responsible for sending these packages".

But Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer of NY and Nancy Pelosi of California said Trump's words "ring hollow".

He also called for more civility in public life, saying: "Those engaged in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as being morally defective".
