( – Two more suspicious packages have been sent to Democratic politicians and other high-profile liberals, officials say.

On Thursday, a suspicious package addressed to Vice President Joe Biden was discovered at a postal facility in Delaware.

That same day, another package was sent to actor Robert DeNiro, an outspoken critic of President Trump, who once said he’d like to punch the president in the face. The package addressed to DeNiro was discovered in the mailroom of his production company, TriBeca Productions.

Police say both packages are similar to the ones sent to prominent Democrats in the past few days.



As previously reported, suspicious packages were sent to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s New York home and former President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

Later that day, a similar suspicious package turned up at the New York City studios of CNN, addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, another outspoken critic of the president who has appeared on the network. That same day, police discovered packages addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder, who recently said, “When they go low, we kick them.”

A package was also sent Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.). who has encouraged people to publicly harass members of the Trump administration.

"If you see anybody from that (Trump) Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!" Waters said in June.

All of the packages had the Florida office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, as the return address.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo claimed that a suspicious package turned up at his office, but it was determined that it was not connected to the other packages, because it contained computer files, not a pipe bomb like the others.
