A suspicious package sent to Clinton, Trump's Democratic rival in the 2016 presidential election, was found late Tuesday during an off-site mail screening, according to the Secret Service.

Authorities responded to 375 Greenwich Street in the vicinity of Greenwich and Franklin streets.

De Niro has been one of Hollywood's most outspoken critics of President Donald Trump. All the intended recipients are Democrats.

It's unclear if the report is related to pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The employee noticed the package shared similarities to photos of other suspicious envelopes that have caused alarm across New York City and Washington D.C. this week - manilla envelopes lined with Bubble Wrap, with six United States postal stamps and similar return addresses.

Like all the other packages found earlier this week, the one found at Tribeca Grill listed Democratic Rep. Each package had six U.S. Postal Service stamps, although in the one photo of a package that was provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, it doesn't appear as though they were postmarked, which could mean that in that case the individual or individuals put stamps on it but didn't actually mail it.

The FBI confirms there is law enforcement activity at the US mail facility in New Castle, Delaware.

Suspicious packages was also sent to Cuomo's New York City office, Congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz's office in Sunrise, Florida, and San Diego Union Tribune as well as Eric Holder, former U.S. Attorney General but to a wrong address. His ended up at the Florida office of Democratic Rep. It matches the description of those sent to the other officials. Yesterday, the Time Warner Center was evacuated because of the bomb sent to CNN. The former Central Intelligence Agency director frequently appears on CNN.

Asked if the bombs were meant to create fear or inflict injury, O'Neill said authorities believed the packages posed a lethal threat.

"But Saturday, in an interview with The Washington Post , Trump said, "Obviously there's been deception and there's been lies". Canada's foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said the Saudi version lacked "consistency and credibility".

Thus far, the packages have been sent to people who have spoken out against Trump. The mailing address and return address have been edited out of the photo at source. U.S. Postal inspectors are working to locate the package.

The first crude bomb to be discovered had been delivered on Monday to the NY compound of George Soros, a liberal billionaire and major contributor to Democratic causes.

The FBI has made this investigation their highest priority and have asked the public to be as vigilant as possible because it's possible that additional packages have been mailed to different locations. At least one contained projectiles, including shards of glass, a law enforcement official told CNN. The parcels are reported to be inherently unstable and can be set off merely by handling.

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. Each package had six Forever stamps on the envelope as well.

"Let's say for example, that maybe these bombs aren't operational".

According to sources, the explosive device was a PVC pipe with a timer (probably a digital alarm clock) to run the detonator.

Other officials said the devices contained in the envelopes were all similar to one found in the mailbox of the Soros home and later detonated by police.
