Robert De Niro, Joe Biden new 'bomb targets'

"It's no longer "Down with Trump, ' it's 'f**k Trump", De Niro said.

This combination of file photos created on October 25, 2018 shows top L-R: actor Robert De Niro former US President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and billionaire George Soros; bottom L-R: former US Vice President Joe Biden, Democratic lawmaker Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, and California Democratic Representative Maxine Waters.

All the packages were removed, and there were no reports of injuries.

Thus far, the packages have been sent to people who have spoken out against Trump.

He said the inquiry into the packages will have whatever resources are needed, and FBI Director Christopher Wray has pledged that the bureau will not rest until the culprits are caught. The two officials who are not authorized to comment publicly said authorities had not identified a suspect.

The Secret Service launched an investigation to find the source of the packages.

"I have been informed by U.S. Capitol Police that my Washington, DC office was the target of a suspicious package that has been referred to the FBI", Waters said in a statement on October 24.

The former DE senator is a Democrat who served as vice president in the Obama administration.

The device was found around 10 the CNN mailroom, prompting an evacuation of the Time Warner Center, where the CNN newsroom in NY is based.

The spree began Monday with a device found at the NY home of billionaire liberal donor George Soros. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the authorities did not know whether that meant the sender of the devices lived in the New York area.

Earlier it was reported that unknown persons sent parcel bombs to the offices of former U.S. President Barack Obama and former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

The package contained a device resembling apparent explosives sent to CNN's NY offices and to several high-profile Democrats on Wednesday, according to NBC News. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in South Florida and CNN's NY offices, among others.

Now, the package addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder didn't make it to his office.

There was no need for an evacuation because the building - which also occupies the offices of the actor's Tribeca Films - was unoccupied.

Other packages have been addressed to a former USA attorney general, two Democratic Party members of Congress and former Central Intelligence Director John Brennan.

At least 10 possible bombs were sent to various locations and intercepted since Monday.

The FBI has launched an intensive investigation into the incidents and have posted pleas for information on their official Twitter account. The Weinstein Company's New York City office used to be in the building. The New York device was black and had wires. Trump also often singles out cable news network CNN as he rails against the "fake news" media.

Law enforcement officials said all the packages were similar: manila envelopes with bubble-wrap interior bearing six stamps and the return address of Wasserman Schultz.

The United States Secret Service on Wednesday announced that it has intercepted and proactively detonated two "suspicious packages" addressed to former President Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. It's not clear at this point.
