Person in custody in package bombs

Robert De Niro

During the Q&A portion of the press conference, a journalist asked FBI Director Wray if there is any reason to believe that the suspect might have had help, to which Wray replied: "We do believe that we've caught the right guy, but we also know that this is an ongoing investigation, and there's a lot of work still to be done, which means there's still plenty of unanswered questions". Clapper told CNN that he was not surprised he was targeted and that he considered the actions an act of terrorism. "Not option no way out silence no shots, no traces like never existed", the suspect wrote in a tweet directed at Warren. "We will bring them to justice".

"I thank God no-one's been hurt, and I thank the courageous and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us", De Niro said in a statement.

This story is still developing.

Trump has been on a rally blitz, hoping to help vulnerable Republicans ahead of the November 6 elections that will determine which party controls Congress. The results could alter the balance of power in Washington, DC.

Clapper, who has frequently criticized Trump, vowed to CNN Friday morning that he wouldn't be intimidated in light of the discovery. "There are 330 million people in the US, I would have put him in the bottom two to three million of people I would suspect of doing this".

The development came amid a nationwide manhunt for the person responsible for at least 13 explosive devices addressed to prominent Democrats including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

Another suspicious package was intercepted in south Florida, addressed to New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

There has been an outcry from Trump's critics, who charged that his inflammatory rhetoric against Democrats and the press has created a climate for politically motivated violence.

After first calling for unity at the White House event, Trump lamented partisan attacks against him and again pointed at the media.




"It would be worse than September 11th", Sayoc said, according to the police report, which also said Sayoc threatened the company's representative with physical harm if his electricity was turned off. And all of the people who experienced these attempted assassinations have been repeatedly vilified and deemed enemies by the President of the United States. At an awards ceremony in June, DeNiro said "F-- Trump" during a rant.

"It's hard to believe they wouldn't have told the White House yesterday", Miller added, noting that Wray and the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been on to Sayoc for at least 24 hours, and had contacted the Florida Department of Law Enforcement the previous evening. None detonated and no one has been hurt.

The devices were thought to have been fashioned from bomb-making designs widely available on the internet, a federal law enforcement source told Reuters news agency. His package was delivered to the Manhattan bureau of CNN, where he had served as an on-air analyst.

"As far as a hoax device, we're not treating it that way", Commissioner James O'Neill said.

A "latent fingerprint" on an envelope sent to California Rep.

Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN Worldwide, said in a note to staff that all mail to CNN domestic offices was being screened at off-site facilities. Since Tuesday, devices have been intercepted addressed to Clinton, Obama, Biden, billionaire George Soros, the actor Robert De Niro, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, former Attorney General Eric Holder and former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan.

"I thank God no one's been hurt, and I thank the fearless and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us", he said.

None of the devices have detonated, and no one has been injured, but the incidents put officials on high alert as they anxious how many additional devices may be out there.
