Robert De Niro – Donald Trump Fight Intensifies as a Pipe Bomb Gets Addressed to the Legendary Actor

Robert De Niro – Donald Trump Fight Intensifies as a Pipe Bomb Gets Addressed to the Legendary Actor

On Thursday, Delaware mail facility workers intercepted a suspicious package addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and former director of national intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. Maxine Waters and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Democratic Sen.

The Justice Department and FBI confirmed the arrest and had a press conference scheduled for later in the afternoon to give details about their investigation, which began with the first bomb delivered to billionaire liberal donor George Soros. By the following morning, he'd abandoned that toned-down rhetoric and blamed the media for the discord in US public life.

De Niro, a longtime critic of President Trump, earlier this month said he felt "offended" by Trump and the GOP.

"Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this "Bomb" stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows - news not talking politics", he wrote.

"Very unfortunate, what is going on", he said of the bomb drama and nationwide manhunt. "Republicans, go out and vote!" the president tweeted.

An FBI-led joint terrorism task force of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies "will continue to work to identity and arrest whosoever is responsible for sending these packages", FBI director Christopher Wray said in a statement.

CNN, citing law enforcement sources, reported that the man was in his 50s, with an Aventura, Fla. address, and that he has a criminal history.

Though none has exploded, they comprise one of the biggest bombing threats in the United States in decades. Sayoc pleaded guilty without trial and was sentenced to probation, the records show. In 2014, he was arrested after stealing copper pipes at a Home Depot, to which he plead guilty. Kamala Harris, her office said. When asked why Sayoc allegedly targeted Democrats, Sessions said he "appears to be a partisan, but that would be determined by the facts as the case goes forward".

Sayoc also was arrested in North Carolina in 1999 on a stolen vehicle charge, which was later dismissed. Cory Booker and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper - and similar in appearance to pipe bomb devices sent to other prominent Democrats - have been intercepted, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Friday, as investigators scrambled from coast to coast to locate the culprit and motives behind a weird plot aimed at critics of President Donald Trump.

The packages addressed to Mr Biden were intercepted at DE mail facilities in New Castle and Wilmington, officials said.

Li called for an early conclusion to an Asia-Pacific nations trade pact that includes 16 countries but not the US. On Friday Mr Abe met his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang, and he is due to meet President Xi Jinping later.

A suspicious white powder found in an envelope along with the device sent to Brennan and CNN was tested and found not to be anthrax or other known agents, a source said.

A similar package was found addressed to De Niro at his production offices in Manhattan, according to law enforcement officials.

The package intended for Clapper also was addressed to CNN, a law enforcement official said.

A police truck towed a total containment vessel to a post office in midtown Manhattan to dispose of a suspicious package, today, in NY.

"The windows of Sayoc's van were covered with images including images critical of CNN", the complaint said.

Similar packages addressed to Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama were intercepted on their way to Chappaqua, New York, where Clinton lives with former President Bill Clinton and to Washington, where Obama lives with his wife, Michelle.

Former vice-president Joe Biden talks with 27th Congressional District Democratic candidate Nate McMurray after greeting workers and patrons in a restaurant Thursday in Lancaster N.Y. Biden called for unity after he was found to be one of the targets of the mail bombs. "BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence", Brennan said.

The packages discovered Thursday set off a new wave of alarm. Authorities have said nothing about possible motives or suspects. Were they meant to explode or was the goal only to spread fear?

The news came on a day when three more packages with potential bombs were discovered. But the components could have still provided clues - like the clock and the tape used.
