Former Vice President Joe Biden and outspoken actor Robert De Niro were also the targets of two additional “suspicious packages” similar to those delivered to former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Maxine Waters, and CNN’s New York headquarters.
“The FBI, New Castle County, Del., police and postal inspectors were investigating the package addressed to Biden, law enforcement officials told Fox News, stressing the suspicious package investigation was the bureau’s highest priority,” writes Fox News.
A similar package addressed to De Niro was found Thursday in the offices of his New York City production company.
“A suspicious package was received. We called the police. They took it out and went through all safety procedures,” the Tribeca Film Center said in a statement. “It was addressed to Robert De Niro and is similar packaging to the others. It is an open investigation. Everyone is safe and the building is open.”

AUSTIN ON EDGE: ‘Trip Wire’ Explosion ROCKS TEXAS, 2 Injured
A fourth explosion rocked Austin, Texas Sunday evening; injuring two bicyclists as local and federal authorities scramble to find the culprit behind the seemingly random attacks before the attacker can strike again.
According to Fox News, the blast was possibly caused when the bicyclists triggered a ‘trip wire,’ signaling the suspect has a more “advanced” knowledge of bomb-making than previously thought and may be preparing to ratchet up the sophistication of their attacks.
“If this explosion was the result of a bomb using trip wire technology, that is showing a different level of skill above that we were already concerned that this suspect or suspects may possess,” said Austin Police Chief Brian Manley.
“That changes things, in that our safety message to this point has been involving the handling of packages and telling communities ‘do not handle packages, do not pick up packages, do not disturb packages,’” he added.
“Two men in their 20s suffered non-life threatening injuries in the blast, including one who had nails in his leg,” writes Fox.
If confirmed by the FBI and ATF, this would be the fourth explosion to rock the Texan capital in as many weeks.
