A suspicious package sent to a Florida building housing the offices of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida congresswoman and a former Democratic National Committee member, was being investigated Wednesday as a string of explosive devices were sent to several high-profile recipients.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also said he was informed that a suspicious package had been sent to his office in Manhattan, adding that the device “has been identified and is being handled as we speak.” “We wouldn’t be surprised” if more devices show up, Cuomo said.
The US Secret Service announced Wednesday it had intercepted explosives sent to Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York, as well as former President Barack Obama’s home in Washington.
A suspicious package was also being investigated within the vicinity of a California building housing the offices of Senator Kamala Harris as well as the San Diego Union Tribune. Another one was also sent to CNN headquarters in New York City this morning.
Police in Florida confirmed they were investigating the possible suspicious package sent to the lawmaker’s Sunrise offices after a Broward Sheriff’s Office bomb squad unit and firefighters were deployed to the scene.
