Other suspicious packages were addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan in care of CNN in NY; one to former Attorney General Eric Holder and two to Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

He called a Florida school shooting survivor a "fake phoney", peddled theories about George Soros, the billionaire political donor targeted this week by a package bomb and denigrated other Democrats who were later the intended recipients of explosive packages.

O'Neill said a retired New York City police detective who had seen pictures of a device that arrived at CNN recognized one that looked like it at De Niro's address in Tribeca, in Manhattan.

Footage has emerged of a bomb disposal robot sent in to probe a package supposedly sent to the former US Vice President, Joe Biden, at a post office in Delaware.

The parcel intended for Holder ended up rerouted to the return address printed on all the packages - the Florida office of U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a former chair of the Democratic National Committee, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. No one was hurt in that attempted attack or other mail bombs aimed at critics of Trump.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, the top two Democrats in Congress, issued a statement Wednesday afternoon, accusing Trump of fanning the flames of political unrest.

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

Suspicious packages also were sent to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The package with Biden's name on it was found at the facility in New Castle, Delaware on Thursday morning.

Police are examining a suspicious package addressed to actor-director Robert De Niro at a building in lower Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood, two law enforcement sources said early Thursday.


"This investigation is of the highest priority for the FBI", Wray said.

The New York City Police Department says the package was reported around 4 a.m.in the area of Greenwich and Franklin streets in Tribeca.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

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".

All of the suspicious packages were sent to people who have been verbally attacked by President Donald Trump and been vocally critical of him as well. The package, now considered suspicious because of similarities to others, was misaddressed and returned to sender. They said investigators searching for more suspicious parcels had not found any during the previous eight hours.

A Wasserman Schultz district office in South Florida was listed as the return address on the packages, in what current and former investigators said was a feint suggesting particular antipathy on the part of the bomber toward her.

It is the latest suspicious package, which has been nicknamed "MAGA bombs" by some, in the U.S. sent to a high-profile liberal target.

Sayoc's arrest Friday was a major breakthrough in the nationwide manhunt following the discovery of explosive devices - none of which detonated - addressed to prominent Democrats and other frequent targets of conservative ire, including former President Barack Obama, former Vice-President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and the cable network CNN.

Law enforcement officials did not comment on the possible motives behind the crimes or whether political ideology may have played a role.
