BREAKING: NEW Packages Have Been Found, 12 Total

The bomb scares over the past two days have continued onto a third day as two more identical packages have been discovered.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed on Friday morning that an 11th package had been discovered “similar in appearance to the others”, and was addressed to Democrat Senator Cory Booker.

Shortly after, a 12th package was discovered and was addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

From the Washington Examiner:

A 12th suspicious package was mailed Friday to the New York City offices of CNN and addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the network reported Friday morning.

The package was recovered at a post office in New York City, according to the Associated Press.

Clapper is an analyst at CNN and has been critical of President Trump, in August saying he “doesn’t have control” of his administration anymore.

And, per Associated Press:

Suspicious packages addressed to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper — and similar in appearance to pipe bomb devices sent to other prominent Democrats — have been intercepted, the FBI said Friday, as investigators scrambled from coast to coast to locate the culprit and motives behind a bizarre plot aimed at critics of President Donald Trump.

The discoveries brought to 12 the total number of devices addressed in recent days to Democratic figures including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

Law enforcement has been able to secure all the packages prior to any denotation and there have been no casualties, but the bomb scares have undoubtedly shaken the country.

Clapper reportedly called into CNN about the bomb scare and said the presumably-linked bomb scares amount to “domestic terrorism.”

As ABC News reports, the FBI is leading the federal investigation and is closing in on where the packages were sent from:

As of midday Thursday, law enforcement officials have confirmed at least 12 devices have been found.

On Wednesday, officials said the packages all contained an explosive device, adding that similar packages could still be out there.

The FBI, ATF, Secret Service, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, NYPD and other authorities are investigating.

One new package was discovered in New York City on Friday as well as a new package in South Florida, where investigators are paying close attention to a particular mail facility.

Clapper is the latest victim in a series of bomb scares to prominent political figures including:

Former President Barack Obama

Former President Bill Clinton

Former Vice President Joe Biden (two bombs were sent to him)

Liberal Billionaire George Soros

Former CIA Director John Brennan

Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters (two bombs were sent to her)

Former Attorney General Eric Holder

Actor Robert De Niro

Democrat Senator Cory Booker
