U.S. media reported that a suspicious device was also addressed to Obama's former vice president, Joe Biden, often rumored as a potential Democratic presidential candidate for 2020, in DE on Thursday.

Most of those devices showed the presence of a sulfur substance, which could have exploded, a law enforcement official said.

The pipe bombs were sent to a mix of offices and residential addresses, and appeared to target some of the people President Donald Trump mostly criticizes. Each listed Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, as the sender, including misspellings of her last name, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. All packages had a return address of "DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ" [sic] in Florida. The package is considered suspicious, but no details have been revealed except that it was misaddressed and returned to sender. One was intercepted at a Los Angeles mail facility.

"A suspicious package was received". It was addressed to Robert De Niro and is similar packaging to the others.

An explosive sent to CNN prompted the evacuation of the Time Warner Center in NY, but no one was hurt. The former Central Intelligence Agency director frequently appears on CNN.

The package sent to the actor also had the same return address as the others: that of Democratic US Rep.

The package intended for Holder had the wrong address and was forwarded to Wasserman Schultz.

Citing police sources, NBC said a device had arrived at the Tribeca Grill early on Thursday local time.

The politics belied the life-and-death nature of the growing list of bombing targets in New York, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Florida and California.

Police in New York City removed a suspicious package sent to a building owned by actor Robert De Niro early Thursday.

According to police, the device appears to be a similar device to the ones sent to top Democrats including former President Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"It could just be a person who is not proficient and therefore the bombs didn't explode, or it could be there was an intent not to have the bomb explode but only intimidate", he said.

The bomber maker wanted to create fear, expert saysThe bombs were likely meant to be found and create panic, explosives experts say.

The devices had suspicious-looking packaging, and at least one had a timer that can be bought for a few dollars online and should be easily detected when mailed or delivered. They did not release more details.

De Niro is a prominent critic of President Trump. Trump also often singles out cable news network CNN as he rails against the "fake news" media. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description".

Still, as news broke of the suspicious package at the De Niro-linked building, Trump tweeted the media must "clean up it's act, FAST!" It was unclear whether that response was related to the one in New Castle, the news outlet reported. Sources say the package is similar to ones that were sent Wednesday to several high-profile Democratic figures and CNN, which contained "potentially destructive" devices.

As the scope of the attack became clearer Wednesday, Trump decried political violence during a scripted event in the White House East Room and other members of the administration said it has no place in American society.

"We want all sides to come together in peace and harmony".
