Pipe bombs were mailed to prominent Democrats, including George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Representative Maxine Waters, and former Attorney General Eric Holder. Another was sent to the CNN station in New York and was addressed to former Director of the CIA John Brennan. On Thursday morning, former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert DeNiro, an outspoken and vulgar critic against Trump. None of the bombs were detonated. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said his office received a similar package, but New York police officials said the office was cleared and no device was found. Law enforcement officials said all the packages were similar: manila envelopes with bubble-wrap interior bearing six stamps and the return address of disgraced Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chair of the DNC who was accused of rigging the nominee process in favor of Hillary Clinton.
A wave of glass-filled pipe bombs targeting Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, other prominent Democrats and CNN was thwarted without physical harm, but an anxiety-filled day on Wednesday deepened political tensions and fears two weeks before national midterm elections.
None of the bombs detonated as law enforcement took them away for examination and disposal.
The first crude bomb to be discovered had been delivered Monday to the suburban New York compound of George Soros, a liberal billionaire and major contributor to Democratic causes. The FBI said an additional package was intended for former Attorney General Eric Holder, but that one ended up at a Florida office of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose return address was on it.
Later Wednesday, the FBI said two additional packages addressed for Rep. Maxine Waters had been intercepted that were similar in appearance to five others.
The targets of the bombs were some of the figures most frequently criticized by President Donald Trump, who still assails Clinton at rallies while supporters chant “lock her up” – two years after he defeated her and she largely left the political scene. Trump accuses Soros of paying protesters and singles out cable news network CNN as he rails against the “fake news” media.
A woman, 73, who uses a walker, was blocked and harassed when she tried to put out a fire in a trash barrel. She had made a BLM sign to show her support for the group but discovered the hard way that she was dealing with people who had the destruction of America as their goal, not racial justice.
It is possible that Trump may be the preferred candidate of the deep state because he will have far more support of the American people than Biden would when the President declares martial law.

In a vote-by-mail system, a large percentage of voters, who otherwise might go to the polls, would not be able to vote. No one knows for sure what will happen to those undeliverable ballots, and it is not paranoia to believe that many of them will be mailed in by unknown partisan activists.
The new law would permit some voters, namely the elderly and those with physical disabilities, to request that someone else fill out and hand in their ballot, a practice Republicans repeatedly decried as illegal “ballot harvesting.”
