Trump refrains from attacking Democrats

President Donald Trump said Friday that he knows the pipe bomb suspect was one of his supporters, but said he bears "no blame" for the suspect's actions.

Both women were both targeted by suspicious packages.

But among Republican Party officials, there was a more neutral line in this early stage of the FBI's investigation into who sent these devices to prominent critics of the president. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. FBI Director Christopher Wray later confirmed that the devices were not hoaxes.

The package contained an envelope of white powder that experts were analyzing, Police Commissioner James O'Neill said.

"Early this morning, October 24, 2018, a second package addressed to the residence of Former President Barack Obama was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC", the statement adds. This is another thing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement in NY are investigating. The packages were discovered during "routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such", the agency said in a statement.

The president spoke to the media and said that he was proud of the work of law enforcement officials for "finding a needle in a haystack".

The pipe bomb hand-delivered to Soros' suburban NY home was loaded with explosive black powder - a material Gomez said is similar to fireworks powder and can be easily acquired in many states. The official said the devices were made from PVC pipe and covered with black tape. 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". A spokesperson for the Obamas declined to comment.

None of the bombs detonated as law enforcement took them away for examination and disposal. He won that part of the state by double digits in 2016. In 2002, the Miami police arrested him for a bomb threat, a felony.

A spokesman said police were called for a report of a suspicious package at the location around 5 a.m. He filed for bankruptcy protection in 2012, citing $21,000 in debts and saying he lived with his mother.

"In fact, I am a Democrat", Aaronson said.

"And then it ended and I'll tell you what nobody has helped me more", he said.

"I'm astounded about everything", Aaronson said. Trump said. "We're all behaving very well, and hopefully we can keep it that way, right?"

The Hollywood star has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.

"When you stoke a narrative of separation and they're the enemy and we're the heroes, once you start stoking that there's always going to be a nutter or two out there that suddenly thinks he or she has been given justification by their leaders".

The packages discovered Thursday set off a new wave of alarm.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the packages were sent by one or more individuals.

After its offices were evacuated, CNN stayed on air, with Rene Marsh taking over anchor duties from Washington before handing it off to Wolf Blitzer.

"The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice previous year", she said, referring to the shooting that badly injured Rep. Steve Scalise and others.

Two officials told the AP that a package was discovered at a postal facility in Midtown Manhattan.

CNN anchors Poppy Harlow and Jim Scuitto reported outside CNN's NY bureau, after they were evacuated from the Time Warner Center due to a suspicious package.

One lead being pursued by investigators is that some of the devices may have been mailed from South Florida, but officials were cautious Thursday and urged the public to call in with tips from anywhere.

"This is definitely domestic terrorism, no doubt about it in my mind", he said. But he was quick to defend Trump against critics who said his attacks on his political opponents might have been a motivating factor.

Trump said on Friday that news coverage of the suspicious packages had slowed momentum for Republican candidates before the congressional elections.

The club of living former Presidents is a small one and Obama and Clinton are two of just five of its members.

A building worker in Tribeca said he found the suspicious package addressed to De Niro at 375 Greenwich Street, which houses De Niro's Tribeca Productions and his restaurant Tribeca Grill. Mr. Cruz faces Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke.
