Suspicious package addressed to Sen. Cory Booker recovered in Florida
A suspicious package — the 11th sent to top Democratic political figures found in the last week — addressed to Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., was recovered in Florida, the FBI said Friday.
The package found Friday appeared to be similar to the others that were sent, the FBI said.
The NYPD said separately it was investigating suspicious packages at a location on 52nd street in New York City. The intended recipients or contents of the packages couldn’t immediately be confirmed.
On Thursday, suspicious packages were sent to former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert De Niro. Biden’s packages were found in Delaware, while De Niro’s package was discovered outside his production company and restaurant in New York City.
The FBI Laboratory at Quantico, Va., has also been engaged, beginning forensic analysis of some of the packages addressed to former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, liberal billionaire George Soros, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former CIA Director John Brennan and California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.
The FBI said Wednesday evening it had identified seven suspicious packages addressed to prominent Democratic figures over the last three days containing “potentially destructive devices.” The packages discovered Friday would make it 11.
