Pipe bombs packed with shards of glass sent to Obama and Clintons

Most of the devices appeared to have been sent through the mail system. The scripted message was a dissonant one for the president, who has repeatedly blasted his political opponents as criminals and argued that they will destroy the country if they win control of Congress in the midterms.

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.

The solution, Bokhari said, is twofold: a strong call from Trump for an easing of political tensions, followed by a longer-term national discussion in which both sides play an earnest role, each acknowledging the concerns and the priorities of the other.

But Trump told the Wisconsin crowd that he was trying to "behave" and "be nice" and none of his usual, red-meat crowd pleasers directed at Waters, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Clinton or others were part of his repertoire Wednesday night.

The president revoked Brennan's security clearance after the ex-CIA chief, a veteran intelligence official in Democratic and Republican administrations, lambasted Trump's Russian Federation summit performance as 'nothing short of treasonous'.

He added: "The media also has a responsibly to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories".

The package intended for Holder had the wrong address and was forwarded to Wasserman Schultz. Philip Bartlett, inspector in charge of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service's NY division, said Thursday afternoon that the Postal Service had found nothing since early that morning, leaving the tally at 10 packages. Each bore a computer-printed address label and six "Forever" postage stamps.

On the same day as a suspicious package containing a possible explosive device was sent to CNN headquarters in New York City, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders accused CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker of dividing America. At least one bomb was packed with shards of glass, one federal source said.

The TV channel reports that the intercepted packages are similar to the ones intercepted earlier by the US Secret Service, mailed to former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former US President Barack Obama.

A retired NY police detective working in security in De Niro's Manhattan office called police after seeing images of a package bomb sent to CNN and recalling a similar package addressed to the actor, officials said. The package addressed to Obama was intercepted early on Wednesday by Secret Service personnel in Washington. They said the package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan.

He added that a similar device was sent to his office in NY.

The package had actually been received in the general mailroom on Wednesday, according to a law enforcement official.

All of the targets are frequently maligned by right-wing critics. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!' "Thus far they have shown no comprehension of that".

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

Asked whether the president meant to tone down his rhetoric and personal attacks, Sanders said the president would "continue to lay out the case in the differences between Democrats and Republicans" ahead of the midterm elections next month.

At an event in Austin, Texas on Wednesday, Brennan also faulted Trump for frequent inflammatory rhetoric, saying the president "too often has helped incite some of these feelings of anger, if not violence, when he points to acts of violence".

"I'm not saying - and I don't believe - that the president is doing this on objective, but he is doing it for his own political imperatives, especially at a time of upcoming midterm elections", Bokhari said in an interview. Soros has called Trump's presidency "dangerous".

Daniel Aaronson, an attorney who has represented Sayoc over the years, said none of his clients were "as polite and as courteous and as respectful to me" as Sayoc was.
