There was panic as the FBI on Wednesday evening said that it had “identified seven suspicious packages addressed to prominent Democratic political figures over the previous three days that contained “potentially destructive devices’ and warned additional packages could have been mailed to other locations”. So the FBI will fish out all the Mail Bomb threats suspects.
The entire states of the country were put right on edge on Wednesday amidst flowing reports of very suspicious packages that were targeted to prominent Democratic critics of the President Donald Trump administration. One of the reports have it that “The FBI initially said it had recovered five packages that were similar in appearance and bore the return address of an office for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.”
Fox News in their report of the incident has noted that “The packages were addressed to billionaire George Soros, Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, former CIA Director John Brennan, care of CNN and former Attorney General Eric Holder. The FBI later confirmed that it had recovered two packages addressed to U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., that were similar to the five others,
“Law enforcement officials involved in the investigation have told FOX News that the similarity between the packages has led them to believe that a single individual or group could be responsible. President Trump condemned the threatening mailings Wednesday afternoon from the White House, saying that “acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.” He was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, who tweeted: “These cowardly actions are despicable & have no place in this Country.” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders added: “These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” Fox News says.
The suspicious package was first discovered on Monday inside of a mailbox at George Soros’ home in New York. The Secret Service intercepted a suspicious package addressed to Hillary Clinton the next night and by Wednesday, at least five political figures were the aim of suspicious packages in New York, Washington, D.C., and Sunrise, Florida.
“A suspicious package addressed to the White House being intercepted at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland were debunked Wednesday. Claims that there were suspicious packages at a San Diego, Calif., building — which houses the San Diego-Union Tribune and the office of Democratic Senator Kamala Harris, among others — and at the Manhattan office of Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, were later declared false alarms,” according to another report.
The President, Donald Trump has publicly condemned such act and calls for justice. “My highest duty as president is to keep America safe,” Trump told his audience in Mosinee. “The federal government is conducting an impressive investigation, and we will find those responsible, and we will bring them to justice, hopefully very quickly.”
He added that “Those engaged in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as being morally defective. The language of moral condemnation … these are arguments and disagreements that have to stop. No one should carelessly compare political opponents to historical villains. It’s got to stop. We should not mob people in public spaces or destroy public property.
