FBI Releases Statement On Suspicious Packages, Says All 5 Are Being Analysed At A Lab In Virginia

The FBI says five packages containing explosives targeting Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, CNN and others are being analyzed at the bureau’s lab in Virginia.

“This investigation is of the highest priority for the FBI. We have committed the full strength of the FBI’s resources and, together with our partners on our Joint Terrorism Task Forces, we will continue to work to identify and arrest whoever is responsible for sending these packages,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray.

“We ask anyone who may have information to contact the FBI. Do not hesitate to call; no piece of information is too small to help us in this investigation,” the statement read.

The agency says each package had a return address of “DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ,” a misspelling of the Florida congresswoman’s name.

The FBI confirmed all of the packages had printed address labels and six stamps.

The first of the packages was found Monday at the suburban New York compound of liberal billionaire George Soros.

The package delivered to CNN on Wednesday was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan.

Another package was addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder. The FBI says that package did not reach its intended destination and was rerouted to the return address on the envelope in Florida.

“The FBI will continue to work with our federal law enforcement partners at the United States Secret Service, United States Postal Inspection Service, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as well as our state and local law enforcement partners, to identify and arrest the person or people responsible for sending these packages.”
