    CNN offices in New York City evacuated over suspicious package

    By Katherine Lam | Fox News

    Live feed from outside the Time Warner Center

    CNN's New York City bureau was among the businesses evacuated Wednesday morning when a suspicious device was found in the Time Warner Center's mailroom -- that discovery coming amid the intercept of similar devices earlier in the day intended for former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
    The Time Warner Center building, located at 10 Columbus Circle, was evacuated just after 10 a.m. Wednesday, the NYPD said, while urging people to avoid the area. At 11:11 a.m., an emergency alert system was sent out asking residents on West 58th Street between Columbus Circle and Eighth Avenue to "shelter in place immediately."
    The package at the Time Warner Center was addressed to MSNBC analyst and former CIA Director John Brennan, according to CNN, citing three internal sources.

    The Time Warner Center (CNN’s NYC bureau) has been evacuated. Jeff Zucker sent the following note to staff. No additional comment or details at this time. Watch CNN for developments.

    8:07 AM - Oct 24, 2018



    CNN anchors Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto were reporting on air when the fire alarm went off. They continued the broadcast from outside the building, showing crowds of people standing on the street as NYPD officers and the bomb squad arrived at the scene.
    CNN president Jeff Zucker sent a note to employees saying the evacuation was ordered "out of an abundance of caution.”
    “We are working with authorities to determine the severity of the situation. The NYPD is on scene, and we we [sic] working closely with them to take every precaution,” Zucker said in the statement, adding that the company checked other bureaus as a precaution.
    The New York City mayor’s office tweeted Mayor Bill de Blasio was briefed on the situation and a 12;45 p.m. news conference was scheduled.
    The series of reports of "potential explosive devices" began early Wednesday morning when the FBI said it was investigating a suspicious package addressed to the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York. But in a statement, the Secret Service said after that package was caught by officials late Tuesday, a second package addressed to Obama "was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington, DC" on Wednesday morning.

    Reports emerged a similar suspicious package found in mail heading to the White House on Wednesday, but the Secret Service later told Fox News the reports were not true. Other packages were rumored to have been found at a handful of other Democratic leaders' offices, but those reports were either unconfirmed or denied by a spokesperson.
    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, along with Vice President Mike Pence, President Trump's children Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. and former first daughter Chelsea Clinton condemned the suspicious packages uncovered this week. Sanders, in a written statement, described the incidents as "attempted violent attacks."

    “We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures. These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards,” Sanders said.
    Ivanka Trump tweeted: "I strongly condemn the attempted acts of violence against President Obama, the Clinton family, @CNN & others. There is no excuse—America is better than this. Gratitude to the @SecretService and law enforcement for all they do to keep this nation safe."

    The packages discovered Wednesday come two days after billionaire and liberal donor George Soros, 88, received an explosive device sent to his home. An employee who works at the residence in Westchester County found the suspicious package Monday and opened it. Federal agents safely detonated the device.
    Soros was not home at the time of the incident.
    It's unclear if the incidents are related.
    The Time Warner Center building attracts 16 million daily visitors, according to its website. Along with the CNN New York bureau, the center also houses a diverse array of shops and restaurants.

    It seems likely these multiple bomb scares is a clever attempt to get the invasion from Central America off the front page.

    They need to interview really hard, that security guard in the Soros neighborhood who either somehow knew without opening the package it was a bomb and carried it to the woods to set it off OR who opens mail packages outside like that at a mail-box and then carries it to the woods? What security guard would do that and "carry it" to the woods and explode it? THEN he calls the police? Really? Who does that?

    Maybe that's what he was supposed to do, but that all seems very fishy to me.

    Pipe bomb hand-delivered to George Soros' mailbox, authorities say

    Posted: Tue 6:25 PM, Oct 23, 2018 |
    Updated: Wed 2:03 PM, Oct 24, 2018

    (ABC NEWS) - A pipe bomb loaded with explosive black powder was hand-delivered to the suburban New York City home of billionaire financier George Soros by a would-be attacker, prompting the FBI to launch an investigation into who would want to harm the philanthropist and political activist, a law enforcement source told ABC News on Tuesday.
    [IMG]https://media.graytvinc.com/images/690*388/George+Soros.jpg[/IMG]

    The FBI photographed the device and then detonated it near Soros' home in Katonah, New York, and were analyzing fragments to determine why the bomb did not go off, the source said.

    Soros has become a favorite target of right-wing groups due to his support of progressive causes and Democratic candidates, but authorities have not commented on whether any specific group is being investigated in regard to the incident.


    The source emphasized that the device was no hoax.


    The pipe bomb was about 6 inches long and was in an 8-by-10-inch envelope made to look like it was delivered through the mail, the source said. A postal inspector who examined the markings on the envelope determined it had been hand-delivered, the source said.


    Soros' regular mail carrier was also interviewed, but did not recall delivering the package, the source said.


    The bomb was found about 3:45 p.m. Monday in the mailbox of Soros' home by a property caretaker for the billionaire, the source said.


    The caretaker told investigators that as he was walking back to the house he noticed the envelope looked suspicious, the source said. He dropped it in the woods away from the residence and called the Bedford Police Department, which sent officers to the scene.


    The 88-year-old Soros was not home when the device was discovered, and no one was injured in the incident.


    Bedford police said the investigation was turned over to the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.


    "We are conducting an investigation at and around a residence in Bedford, New York. There is no threat to public safety, and we have no further comment at this time," the FBI New York office tweeted Monday afternoon.


    Investigators were reviewing video from surveillance cameras of neighboring homes in an attempt to identify the suspect or a suspicious vehicle in the area
    , the source said.


    A Hungarian immigrant who lived through the Nazi occupation during World War II, Soros launched his own hedge fund in 1970 and went on to become one of the most successful investors in U.S. history.


    The discovery of the pipe bomb follows a separate and unrelated case earlier this month, in another northern New York City suburb, in which the FBI found a 200-pound workable bomb, and arrested a man who allegedly built it and planned to detonate it on the National Mall in Washington on Election Day, officials said.


    While no determination has been made about a motive in the Soros case, the investor's Open Society Foundations said they are concerned about consequences of the nation's heightened political rhetoric.


    "The hateful rhetoric that dominates politics in the United States and so many countries around the world breeds extremism and violence. In this climate of fear, falsehoods, and rising authoritarianism, just voicing your views can draw death threats," reads a statement released Tuesday by the foundation.


    "Our founder and chair George Soros deplores violence of any kind and urges politicians across the political spectrum to tone down their rhetoric," the statement reads. "Words have consequences, and we bear responsibility to create a more civil way to discuss our political differences. Respect for a diversity of opinions is fundamental to open society and that is the work that George Soros has devoted his life to. Our politics should be more about what we're for than whom we hate."


    New York City Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill told reporters that police have been in contact with representatives of Soros and are beefing up patrols of the Soros' properties in the area.
    "As we do every day, we are working hand-in-hand with FBI to make sure we keep people safe," O’Neill said.

    Oh, he just "dropped it in the woods", but it didn't detonate, a caretaker, not a security guard, Fox News reported it he carried it to the woods and set it off and that he was a security guard.

    Its fishy to me that a caretaker would think a package looked suspicious enough to get it away from the residence and carry it to the woods and drop it, disturbing evidence, losing fibers, getting his paw prints all over it, not knowing if it would blow up in his hands or not, and THEN he calls the police. That's fishy to me. I know the caretaker must love Soros who wasn't even at home at the time, and is apparently so devoted that he was willing to blow himself up carrying it away from the residence which was a long long ways from the mailbox to begin with, but it's still fishy to me.
