The CNN package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who has publicly clashed with Trump and is a regular television contributor.

Bomb experts and security analysts say that based on the rudimentary construction of the bombs it appeared they were more likely created to sow fear rather than to kill.

A number of similar crude explosive devices have been sent since Monday to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, other top political figures and CNN's NY offices.

All the parcels listed Rep.

Law enforcement officials told CNN the package was found Thursday night.

A bomb squad unit drove through NY after leaving the Tribeca neighbourhood where the package was reportedly found at the Tribeca Grill.

Trump told a political rally in Wisconsin on Wednesday his government would conduct "an aggressive investigation".

At the news conference, Cuomo disclosed that a device was sent to his Manhattan office and that it was being handled.

The packages, sent in manila envelopes with bubble wrap, marked with computer-printed address labels, listed a return address belonging to Wasserman Schultz.

Similar packages addressed to Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama on their way to Chappaqua, New York, where Clinton lives with former President Bill Clinton and to Washington, where Obama lives with his wife, Michelle.

Daniel Aaronson, an attorney who has represented Sayoc over the years, said none of his clients were "as polite and as courteous and as respectful to me" as Sayoc was. Investigators in California scrutinized a package sent to Democratic Sen.

BREAKING: Secret Service intercepts suspicious packages addressed to the residences of former President Obama and former First Lady Hillary Clinton. "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!" Nor would they say why none of the packages had detonated, but they stressed they were still treating them as "live devices". Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Wednesday morning.

But among Republican Party officials, there was a more neutral line in this early stage of the FBI's investigation into who sent these devices to prominent critics of the president.

Law enforcement officials say they're increasing security for people or organizations that might be targeted. We declare here that the blame for these acts of terrorism and for the growing fear in the country rests with President Trump himself.

Details suggested a pattern - that the items were packaged in manila envelopes, addressed to prominent Trump critics and carried USA postage stamps.

An additional clue: Misspellings from his online posts matched mistakes found on the packages, according to an 11-page criminal complaint that included the formal charges of threatening former presidents and transporting explosives across state lines.

US Democratic leaders in Congress said Trump's call for unity rang "hollow" because of his past statements condoning acts of violence.

The mail-bomb scare widened Thursday as law enforcement officials seized three more suspicious packages - two addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden and one to actor Robert De Niro - and said they were similar to crude pipe bombs sent to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and CNN.

Last week, Trump, who has joined other Republicans in accusing Democrats of encouraging "mob" tactics, heaped praise on a Montana congressman who assaulted a reporter in 2017. O'Neill said in an appearance on CNN that he was "pretty sure those images will be caught on video, and we'll be able to find out where that person came from before they entered the building and where they went to after".

The bombing attempts comprise just the latest - and potentially most unsafe - example of extremist elements feeling empowered by presidential rhetoric, said Kamran Bokhari, a Washington-based political science lecturer with the University of Ottawa's Security and Policy Institute.

"Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself".
