Police investigate suspicious package addressed to Robert De Niro

An FBI bomb squad transported a suspicious package through the streets of NY early Thursday morning after it was sent to the Tribeca restaurant owned by actor Robert DeNiro.

The New York Times is reporting both suspicious packages contained explosive devices.

Police quickly rushed to the offices' location to evacuate the building, which was empty at the time, and inspect the package.

Two devices were sent to separate offices for Congresswoman Waters. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chair of the Democratic National Committee. She was a former chair of the Democratic Party.

The package was found "at the business residence of Robert De Niro", New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tells NPR's David Greene. At the Tony Awards in June, the actor used an obscenity to insult the president.

At an event in Texas on Wednesday, Mr Brennan criticised Mr Trump for frequent inflammatory rhetoric.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders condemned the "attempted violent attacks" against the public figures.

It was found at 4.45am (7.45pm AEDST) and has since been removed by the NY police bomb squad and taken away for testing. The devices stashed in manila envelopes and mailed nationwide targeted top Democrats two weeks before the midterm elections.

The investigation to find the person or persons who has sent these packages has widened to the New York, Washington, Florida, and Los Angeles areas.

President Donald Trump accused the media of stirring up "anger" Thursday as the United States reeled from a series of suspicious packages and pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats and actor Robert De Niro. But Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer of NY and Nancy Pelosi of California said such words "ring hollow" when coming from Trump.

Huh: Man Groped a Woman on an Airplane...And Then Blamed Trump?
Alexander recalled in a written statement only that the woman in front of him had spoken to him and then changed seats. First he asked police what kind of sentence he might face if convicted of the charges against him, authorities said.

Trump's words didn't satisfy his political opponents, however. They noted the president's recent praise of a GOP congressman who body-slammed a reporter, among other Trump statements.

None of the suspect devices have gone off and the FBI are investigating who sent them.

At a Wisconsin rally Wednesday night Trump, who has denounced the media as an "enemy of the people", called attention to "how nice I'm behaving tonight" but on Thursday morning he attacked the media.

'It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Clean up your act.try to act Presidential.

What are in the packages?

The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.

Law enforcement officials say the device was made up of a PVC pipe covered in black tape, packed with shards of glass and had a small batter. Officials searched those images overnight and found several other suspicious packages, a law enforcement official said.

On Wednesday, authorities were at Biden's home in Greenville, Delaware after a suspicious package addressed to him was intercepted in Washington, D.C., say sources.

The FBI confirmed that two packages were found in DE meant to reach Mr. Biden, a potential 2020 presidential contender.
