U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office evacuated after suspicious package found

Bomb squad sent to Wasserman Schultz’s office to investigate suspicious package

US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Each package had six American flag Forever stamps on the envelope. It was compact, perhaps about the length of a wooden spoon, and contained wires and a black pipe, officials said. Soros is a Democrat that has been very critical of Donald Trump and the Republican administration.

The devices appeared to be pipe bombs, said Bryan Paamann, FBI special agent in charge of the counterterrorism division in NY. The five packages discovered Wednesday all had a similar return address: That of Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, but with her name misspelled.

"We are fine thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service who intercepted the package addressed to us long before it made its way to our home", said Hilary Clinton during a press conference in Florida.

Brennan's package was addressed to CNN's NY office, prompting a newsroom evacuation. At least two of the devices appeared to have been hand-delivered, according to law enforcement officials.

Jamal Khashoggi death: Saudi explanation ‘not credible’
Lindsey Graham , S-S.C., have expressed skepticism regarding Saudi Arabia's explanation. His body was then rolled in a rug and given to a local "co-operator" to dispose of.

The packages reportedly contained small, crude but potentially lethal pipe bombs: usually a metal water pipe filled with explosive material and shrapnel, tightly sealed at the ends and detonated by a fuse inserted through a hole. 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 additional packages may have been mailed to other locations. He also often singles out cable news network CNN and other news media whose reporting he does not like, terming them "fake news".

The first package, which turned up on Monday (local time), was addressed to Mr Soros, the billionaire financier and advocate of liberal, open-border values who is a frequent target of right-wing conspiracy theories. Clinton was in Florida at the time, campaigning for Democrats.

All of the envelopes listed Rep.

The FBI said an additional package was intended for former Attorney General Eric Holder, but that one ended up at a Florida office of Democratic Rep. The package, now considered suspicious because of its similarities to others, was misaddressed and returned to the sender.

Iceberg shaped like a colossal sheet cake drifts through Antarctic
NASA's Operation IceBridge , which monitors polar ice using plane surveys, has been going on for a decade. Petty compares it to a glass plate that shatters - the lines are typically very straight.

Secret Service confirmed Wednesday that two packages were sent to the Clintons and Obamas in the last 24 hours. The AP says the official wasn't authorized to publicly discuss an ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Neither bomb got close to its intended target, and neither contained a written message, according to law enforcement officials, but the twin discoveries led to other undetonated devices being found elsewhere, including in the mailroom at CNN's NY headquarters and a district office of Rep.

Trump has a history of advising supporters to "knock the hell out of" protesters and saying that he would like to see opponents carried out "on a stretcher".

As the scope and targets of the device deliveries became clear, Trump called them "despicable acts".

Police in Istanbul recently began to search forests and farmlands. "They had a very bad original concept", Trump said on Tuesday. The Saudi leadership has denied involvement in the murder and instead blamed the chain of command.
