"Let's get along", he said.

"Have you ever seen this?"

Prominent conservative voices, including Rush Limbaugh, the popular talk-radio host, and Candace Owens, a frequent Fox News guest, suggested that "leftists" were to blame for the attempted attacks. The NYPD found no additional threats besides the white powder.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly.

Rush Limbaugh said on his show that Democrats must be behind the bombs because "Republicans just don't do this kind of thing".

A New York City police bomb squad has recovered a suspicious package addressed to Robert DeNiro, and investigators say it may contain a device similar to others sent to Democratic figures, a law enforcement official tells The Associated Press.

"The matter is now under federal investigation", a spokesman for the New Castle Police Department said in a statement to Fox News. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose return address was on it.

The agency said the package targeting Mrs. Clinton, intercepted late Tuesday night, was addressed to her home address in NY.

The White House quickly condemned the attacks aimed at Democrats and perceived foes of the administration. "This egregious conduct is abhorrent".

Last week, Trump, who has joined other Republicans in accusing Democrats of encouraging "mob" tactics, heaped praise on a Montana congressman who assaulted a reporter in 2017. It was later rendered safe in Bedford, New York, a law enforcement source said.

The official said one of the packages had the return address of United States representative Deborah Wasserman Schultz, the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. The devices were being examined by technicians at the FBI's forensic lab in Quantico, Virginia. Officials provided no details on a possible suspect or motive.

The Secret Service said media reports that it has intercepted a suspicious package bound for the White House are incorrect.

The Secret Service intercepted the package addressed to Clinton at the home she shares with her husband, former president Bill Clinton, north of Manhattan on Tuesday, and a second package addressed to Obama's Washington home on Wednesday.

NY police confirmed that its officers had been called to the Time Warner Center, where the CNN bureau in the USA financial capital is located, to investigate reports of a suspicious package.

"We will spare no resources or expense in this effort", Trump said.

The FBI said a total of seven suspicious packages were sent in New York, Washington and Florida, including to Obama's attorney general Eric Holder and two to Maxine Waters, a California lawmaker, one in Los Angeles and one in the Washington area. CNN has a bureau in the building.

"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 past year". They said it was similar to other explosives discovered in the past few days.
