27 Octobre 2018

None of the ten bombs detonated, and nobody was hurt.

President Donald Trump returned on Thursday to blaming the media for much of the "anger" in society, a day after CNN and Democrats were the targets of explosive devices.

But Republican U.S. Representative Steve Scalise, who was wounded previous year by a gunman who opened fire on Republican lawmakers during a baseball practice, said it was a mistake for Democrats to criticize Trump for the suspected bombs.

Video: Authorities continue to investigate additional suspicious packages containing explosives that seem to target prominent liberal figures and Democratic politicians the week of October 22. He could face decades in prison if convicted. "As far as hoax devices, we're not treating it that way".

Pressed by reporters Thursday on whether there could be a link between Trump insulting political opponents and the dispatch of the bombs, Sanders replied, "the president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone no more than [Democratic U.S. Senator] Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a baseball field practice [by Republican lawmakers] a year ago".

Police intercepted six suspected bombs sent to targets including Trump's 2016 presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and prominent political donor George Soros.

Investigators have concluded that white powder found with a suspicious device this week is "not biological" - but they said that the devices are "something that should be taken seriously". But he said they did contain potentially explosive material, adding: "These are not hoax devices". On Friday, new packages addressed to New Jersey Sen.

"The windows of Sayoc's van were covered with images including images critical of CNN", the complaint said. She says she's deeply disturbed by these packages, disturbed that it showed up and that her name has been used in all of this.

The FBI, US Secret Service, and local police have mounted a full-scale criminal investigation, appealing to members of the public to come forward with any information they may have.

"Democrats oppose any effort to secure our border", Trump said, once again glossing over the fact that Democrats favor border security measures - but not the construction of the president's long-promised wall on the southwestern border. He was repeatedly arrested for theft in the 1990s, faced felony charges of possession of anabolic steroids in 2004 and was convicted of grand theft in 2014. Gianforte pleaded guilty to that incident. It is now being taken to a "secure location in the Bronx", police said.

A law enforcement official said the package has similar characteristics to several others that were discovered this week.

"That's a very bipartisan statement", he said.

His lawyer in that case said the charge stemmed from a heated conversation with a Florida utility representative.

"I'm astounded about everything", Aaronson said. You say there could be more out there. And though "lock her up" chants rang out, Trump did not bring up Clinton. "We must never allow political violence to take root in America and I'm committed to doing everything in my power as president to stop it and stop it now".

"The most highly trained experts in the world are investigating today's suspicious package in #TriBeCa", O'Neill's tweet reads. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and former director of national intelligence James Clapper. The FBI later confirmed that it had recovered two packages addressed to Waters that were similar to the five it referenced in its earlier statement. Here in Wisconsin, he embarked on his 38th campaign rally since assuming the presidency with a bit of rhetorical jujitsu, managing to weave jabs at the news media and Democrats into an opening call for Americans to "come together in peace and harmony".

Ron Lowy, a former lawyer for Sayoc who now represents his family, told CNN he believed Sayoc was left emotionally scarred as a boy when his father left the home, developing an identity crisis in which he ultimately embraced Trump as a kind of father figure.

Also, CNN's NY bureau in the Time Warner Center was evacuated after a suspicious package was discovered in the building.

All were sent through the U.S. Postal Service system and intercepted before reaching their intended targets without exploding.

"This is definitely domestic terrorism, no doubt about it in my mind", he said.

"Such conduct must be fiercely opposed and firmly prosecuted", the president said.

A law enforcement source said a similar package addressed to Mr Biden was intercepted at a DE mail facility, reigniting fear yesterday's bomb scare drama was not an isolated event.

Trump did address the reports in his opening remarks, calling the episodes "an attack on our democracy itself" and promising swift justice.

Hillary Clinton was attending campaign events for Democrats in Florida and was not at the family's NY residence when the bomb was intercepted.

More were sent to frequent Trump critics Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

Police are investigating a suspicious package addressed to actor Robert De Niro in NY, news reports said on Thursday. They bore the return address of Florida Rep. All packages had a return address of "DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ" [sic] in Florida.
