A suspicious package discovered on Wednesday at the Time Warner Center, where the CNN TV channel NY headquarters are located, was addressed to Former CIA Director John Brennan, CNN reported.

In the American police said that was sent to CNN, as well as the European Union and ex-US President Barack Obama improvised explosive devices were stuffed with white powder, reports the Chronicle.info with reference on the Facts.

The parcels have been sent to former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Rep. Maxine Waters, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Democratic donor George Soros, actor Robert De Niro - and former CIA Director John Brennan, via CNN's Manhattan office.

At a rally in Wisconsin Wednesday night, Trump decried the threat of political violence and called on the media to end its "hostility" after authorities intercepted bombs sent to CNN and prominent Democrats who have been the targets of some of his sharpest barbs.

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.

Cesar Sayoc, 56, was arrested in connection with the suspicious packages, law enforcement sources told CNN.

And on the other side of the spectrum, Republican congressman and House majority whip Steve Scalise was one of several people wounded in June 2017 by a rifle-toting left-wing activist who died in the ensuing shootout with police.

Most of the intended recipients were high-profile Democrats and all were known to be outspoken critics of Trump, foils for his political rhetoric or both.

In fact, until this weekend, Jamie Lee Curtis' biggest opening weekend was $29 million for Beverly Hills Chihuahua . In fourth was another seasonal offering, Sony's Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween , at $9.7 million (Sh981 million).

CNN cited three unnamed sources saying that the suspicious package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, in care of CNN's NY offices.

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

Trump is calling for a new level of civility, saying those "engaged in the political arena" must "stop threating political opponents as being morally defective". The bombs have been sent across the country - from New York, Delaware and Washington, D.C., to Florida and California, where Waters was targeted. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee who was accused by Clinton rivals of secretly helping the party's eventual presidential nominee. No one was hurt in the incident, and a criminal investigation has been launched. He threatened this morning, on the heels of the attack on CNN, that the mass media "had better get its act to together and fast".

But Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer of NY and Nancy Pelosi of California said such words "ring hollow" when coming from Mr Trump.

The packages were sent in manila envelopes with bubble wrap, marked with computer-printed address labels.

"I've seen the guy maybe 80 times and I never said a word to him because I had a feeling he was a little off", said Weiss, a 56-year-old building superintendent who has lived in the neighbourhood for eight years.

Another law enforcement source told CNN authorities were investigating a suspicious package intercepted in Burlingame, California, that was addressed to billionaire Tom Steyer, an outspoken Trump critic. Just two days earlier, CNN's offices in NY were evacuated when the package for Brennan, addressed to him at the network, was found in the mailroom.

BREAKING: Secret Service intercepts suspicious packages addressed to the residences of former President Obama and former First Lady Hillary Clinton. Amid that backdrop, some at CNN were angered by an initial tweet by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders that condemned "the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton and other public officials", but omitted any reference to CNN. Bedford police said they received a call about 3:45 p.m. Monday reporting a suspicious package found in a mailbox. Another was found in a Los Angeles postal facility.
