De Niro, Biden Latest Suspected Targets As Trump Slams Media

Former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan says US President Donald Trump's assertions of

He called a Florida school shooting survivor a "fake phoney", peddled theories about George Soros, the billionaire political donor targeted this week by a package bomb and denigrated other Democrats who were later the intended recipients of explosive packages.

The 75-year-old actor - who has starred in hits such as "Taxi Driver" and "Raging Bull" - is the owner of the Tribeca Grill in New York City, where police confirmed a suspicious-looking package was sent to the eatery while it was empty.

The US Secret Service intercepted packages addressed to Obama at his Washington home and to Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee for president, at the NY state home she shares with former president Bill Clinton.

"I have been informed by U.S. Capitol Police that my Washington, DC office was the target of a suspicious package that has been referred to the FBI", Waters said in a statement on October 24.

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

Trump on Wednesday condemned the attempted attacks, calling for unity and vowing to bring justice to those responsible.

It comes as Mr Trump has launched a new attack on the media - hours after glass-filled pipe bombs were sent to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the offices of CNN. Reporters who work for publications that have "gotten on Trump's bad side" find themselves ignored by him, says news site Mother Jones.

"Unfortunately, I think Donald Trump, too often, has helped to incite some of these feelings of anger, if not violence, when he points to acts of violence or also talks about swinging at somebody from the press, the media", he said.

Earlier it was reported that unknown persons sent parcel bombs to the offices of former U.S. President Barack Obama and former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

Explosive devices and suspicious packages have also been intercepted after they were sent to the homes or offices of Obama, Waters and Rep.

Also on Thursday, a suspicious package addressed to actor-director Robert De Niro was reported at the Manhattan building where his production company is based, and its marking and contents appear similar to the other pipe bomb packages, two law enforcement sources said.

Trump’s missile treaty pullout could escalate tension with China
But speaking at a news conference after his talks with Putin, Bolton gave no indication of any change of course on the INF treaty. Saying, "you can't call it an existing viable treaty if the Russians have been violating it for a number of years", Mr.

"This investigation is of the highest priority for the FBI", Wray said.

An NYPD spokesman said it was unclear if it related to the earlier mailed pipe bombs.

The tweet drew an immediate response from Sen.

De Niro later apologized - not to Trump, but on America's behalf to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whom the president had insulted as "very dishonest & weak" after Trudeau threw shade on the president's trade policies.

Investigators are now working in NY and other cities, within the postal system, and at the federal level, to determine who sent the packages - and why.

Police officers visited other "locations associated with the Soros family, his businesses", and then when the devices addressed to Clinton and Obama were discovered, "we really widened our outreach", Miller said.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the packages were "clearly an effort to terrorize people politically, to choose people for political purposes and attack them due to their beliefs".

"He said "your critics will not be intimidated into silence".

The New York package was addressed to "James Robert Clapper Time Warner (CNN)", according to a photo of the package obtained by CBS New York station WCBS-TV. "Like, 'Don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head.' I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?'" The common thread among them was obvious: critical words for Donald Trump and frequent, harsher criticism in return.

"Don't let the terrorists win", he said.

The attacks overtook other news in an already-tense political season that could reshape Congress and serve as a referendum on the first two years of Trump's presidency. Two packages were found addressed to her.
