De Niro is the owner of the restaurant and founder of the Tribca Film Festival.

So why De Niro? The package, now considered suspicious because of similarities to others, was misaddressed and returned to sender.

On Wednesday, explosive devices were addressed to the NY residence of former Democratic presidential candidate and secretary of state Hillary Clinton; the Washington residence of former Democratic president Barack Obama; California Democratic Representative Maxine Waters; and John Brennan, Obama's Central Intelligence Agency director, sent via the NY offices of CNN, where Brennan is a regular contributor. MSNBC reported a second suspicious package also was discovered.

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. The package found at CNN's NY bureau in the Time Warner Center was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, city and local law enforcement officials said.

"I hope there's a couple [of segments] where I interrogate [Trump], I arrest him, and then I take him to jail", the actor said.

The package was delivered to the site in the NYPD Rodmans Neck (Bronx) for further investigation.

The package addressed to Biden was intercepted at a mail facility in Delaware.

On Wednesday, CNN evacuated its NY offices after an apparent pipe bomb and an envelope with white powder were discovered in the mailroom. Explosive device found in a mailbox billionaire George Soros.

They targeted Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, CNN and others.

Police said the package recovered in Manhattan addressed to De Niro, who dropped an expletive insult at Trump at this year's Tony Awards, was similar to the other pipe bombs recovered this week.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that "across the administration, we condemn the actions that led to these activities in the strongest possible terms and are determined to make sure that we get to the bottom of it and justice is done".

Joe Biden: Authorities are trying to track down a package addressed to the former vice president, two law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday night.

At a press conference Thursday, officials in NY stressed they were still treating the packages as "live devices".

The packages were discovered during "routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such", the agency said in a statement.

Soros, the target of the first device, has always been a hate figure for right-wing groups and lives in Bedford, New York, not far from the Clintons.

Authorities appealed for tips at a Thursday afternoon news conference in NY.

CNN has been a repeated target of Trump's attack, with the USA president often labelling the network as "fake news".

And in fact, we can't attribute any direct responsibility for the bombings to Trump: His White House, through press secretary Sarah Sanders, condemned the "terrorizing acts", and Trump stated that he "fully agrees" with Vice President Mike Pence's denunciation, via tweet, of the bombings as "cowardly actions". But he said they did contain potentially explosive material, adding: "These are not hoax devices". They all also had a half-dozen Forever stamps, computer-printed address labels and return addresses bearing the misspelled name of Wasserman Schultz, who chaired the Democratic National Committee during part of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Democratic Representative Maxine Waters said in a statement on Wednesday that US Capitol Police said that her Washington, DC, office was the target of a suspicious package that was referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

David Chipman, a retired federal ATF agent and now senior policy adviser for the Giffords Center, said the details revealed telltale signs that could help guide investigators. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!'
