He has been charged with five crimes and faces 58 years in prison.

Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN Worldwide, said in a note to staff that all mail to CNN domestic offices was being screened at off-site facilities.

The packages addressed to Biden were intercepted at DE mail facilities in New Castle and Wilmington, according to a law enforcement official who, like others, wasn't authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The suspected explosives De Niro received was the eighth one discovered. "I'm not seeing that", he said.

Another said "CNN Sucks", along with an image of Trump standing on a tank in front of fireworks and an American flag.

"When we choose violence over dialogue and political discourse, it's a sad day in America. We can not let it happen".

Trump and his media allies have pointed to the overheated rhetoric of those on the left, including the hounding of members of the administration as they eat at D.C. restaurants.

"In fact, I am a Democrat", Aaronson said.

"I heard he was a person that preferred me over others", he told reporters. Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the House majority whip, was struck in the hip and badly wounded.

Mr Biden has also criticised Mr Trump, as recently as last week, saying Mr Trump may not "know what he's doing" and that he coddles dictators. "If you look at what happened to Steve Scalise, that was from a supporter of a different party".

How many packages have been mailed so far?

The packages were sent in manila envelopes with bubble wrap, marked with computer-printed address labels.

Harris was mentioned in the criminal complaint as a target known to federal investigators.

The tweet came just hours after authorities recovered two more suspicious packages addressed to Sen. One official says it was addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he would be addressing the arrest shortly. One official told AP that investigators are homing in on a postal facility in Opa-locka, Florida, where they believe some packages originated. "No question about it in my mind".

At a press conference Thursday, officials in NY would not discuss possible motives or details on how the packages found their way into the postal system.

Court records in Florida listed Sayoc's birthplace as Brooklyn, New York.

The package sent to CNN was discovered at a mail facility in Manhattan.

Speaking at the Justice Department Friday morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said various agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Secret Service, were "working tirelessly" to investigate the packages.

Other packages were sent to frequent Trump critics Waters, D-Calif., and former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder.

All of the packages listed the Florida office of Rep.

The post office in New Castle was evacuated and its mail trucks moved to other locations, WPVI-TV reported.

On Thursday night, the Miami-Dade County Police Department said it was assisting federal agents who were at the facility as part of the ongoing investigation. No potentially explosive devices were found, according to reports.

The first package was detected on Monday at the NY home of billionaire philanthropist and Democrat donor George Soros. An earlier package had been sent to former Obama CIA Director John Brennan via CNN in NY.

Twelve packages have been sent to figures such as former president Barack Obama and actor Robert de Niro in recent days.

De Niro included a political call-out in his statement about the packages on Friday morning.

"I thank God no one's been hurt, and I thank the courageous and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us", he said.

Authorities have branded the parcel bombs, coming less than two weeks before national elections that could alter the balance of power on Capitol Hill, as an act of terrorism, though they have declined to say whether the devices were built to be functional.

He revisited his attacks Thursday morning on Twitter.
