Suspicious Package to Cory Booker Found in Florida Mail Facility

(CN) — Another day, another rash of suspicious packages found in the nation’s mail bound for a critic of President Donald Trump.

This time, law enforcement officials said, one package was addressed to New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker. It was found during an overnight search of an Opa-locka, Florida mail facility.

A second package, addressed to dormer Director of National Intelligence James Clapper care of CNN, was discovered at a mail facility in Manhattan.

The latest discoveries bring to 12 the number of similar packages found to contain suspected explosive devices. The FBI is examining the devices at its crime lab in Quantico, Va.

As with other packages sent to prominent Democrats and liberals and CNN, and later found to contain what appeared to be rudimentary explosive devices, the return address listed on the pacakges was the Sunrise, Fla., office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told CNN Friday morning that he is not surprised he has been targeted with a suspicious package.

Clapper described the mailings to Trump critics as  ” domestic terrorism,” but added that they are “not going to silence the administration’s critics.”
