Several explosives have been sent in the mail to high-ranking Democrats and Trump critics since Monday, including former President Barack Obama and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Bomb squads are still investigating a bomb scare at the Sunrise, Florida, office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and a suspicious package intercepted before it could reach Rep. Maxine Waters.

Multiple pipe bombs were sent in the mail to high-ranking Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump on Tuesday and Wednesday, including former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The Secret Service on Wednesday said it intercepted two explosive devices addressed to the residences of Clinton and Obama. The situation escalated further when CNN evacuated its New York bureau when another explosive was found in their building’s mail room.
Several more incidents followed around the US, including at the offices of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chair of the Democratic National Committee; California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters; California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris; and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Early reports indicating a similar package was sent to the White House were later refuted by the Secret Service.
“What we saw here today was an effort to terrorize. This clearly is an act of terror, attempting to undermine our free press and the leaders of this country through acts of violence,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at an afternoon press conference.
