The package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, and the Florida office of congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was labeled as the return address. That device was constructed from a length of pipe about 6 inches long filled with explosive powder, and it was "proactively detonated" by bomb squad technicians, according to one of the officials, all of whom were briefed on the investigation. Investigators were trying to track down another suspicious parcel they believe was addressed to Obama's vice president, Joe Biden, a federal official told Reuters late on Wednesday.

A white powder was found during a search after the discovering of the suspicious package at the Time Warner Centre, according to NY police.

CNN has been a frequent target of Trump's "fake news" barbs, and a "CNN sucks" chant broke out at a Monday campaign rally.

Authorities have intercepted suspicious devices intended for former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and the Florida office of Democratic Rep.

"By the way, do you see how nice I'm behaving tonight?" he said. There is no information to suggest she sent the packages.

Trump spoke to thousands of supporters in a central Wisconsin rally as he looked to boost struggling Republican candidates less than two weeks before the midterm elections.

A suspicious package addressed to the Washington office of US Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, was intercepted at a congressional mail-screening facility in Maryland, and a second package addressed to the congresswoman was found at a postal facility in Los Angeles. "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"

A package addressed to Harris found Friday at a Sacramento mail facility was the 13th device officials said they had linked to Sayoc.

Ms Wasserman Shultz was the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, but resigned from her position after the release of DNC emails during the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign.

A police bomb squad removed still another from CNN's NY office, which was evacuated.

The package was delivered by courier, law enforcement sources said.

"Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself", Trump said.

Details suggested a pattern - that the items were packaged in manila envelopes, addressed to prominent Trump critics and carried US postage stamps.

"No nation can succeed that tolerates violence or the threat of violence as a method of political intimidation", Trump said, pledging an "aggressive investigation" that will bring the suspects to justice "hopefully very soon".

A US official told The Associated Press that investigators believe the explosive that was discovered near the Clintons' home was linked to one found Monday at the Soros compound.

The package addressed to Ms Clinton at her home in the New York suburb of Chappaqua was an explosive device, the New York Times reported.

President Donald Trump responded to the news by saying threats of political violence had no place in the USA, promising a full investigation into the packages.

"We're extremely angry, upset, unhappy about what we witnessed this morning, and we will get to the bottom of it", he said.

The bombing attempts comprise just the latest - and potentially most risky - example of extremist elements feeling empowered by presidential rhetoric, said Kamran Bokhari, a Washington-based political science lecturer with the University of Ottawa's Security and Policy Institute.

Last week, Trump, who has joined other Republicans in accusing Democrats of encouraging "mob" tactics, heaped praise on a Montana congressman who assaulted a reporter in 2017.

"I'm not saying - and I don't believe - that the president is doing this on goal, but he is doing it for his own political imperatives, especially at a time of upcoming midterm elections", Bokhari said in an interview. Pipe bombs continue to fill the mailboxes of a growing number of prominent people who have in common their criticism of President Trump and his policies.
