FBI on Investigation of Suspicious Packages

Washington, DC...Between October 22 and 24, 2018, suspicious packages were received at multiple locations in the New York and Washington, D.C., areas and Florida. The packages are being sent for analysis at the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia. “This investigation is of the highest priority for the FBI. We have committed the full strength of the FBI’s resources and, together with our partners on our Joint Terrorism Task Forces, we will continue to work to identify and arrest whoever is responsible for sending these packages,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray. “We ask anyone who may have information to contact the FBI. Do not hesitate to call; no piece of information is too small to help us in this investigation.”




The packages are similar in appearance, as depicted in the below photograph, and contain potentially destructive devices.

Exterior of one of the suspicious packages. Addresses have been removed to protect privacy.

The packages were mailed in manila envelopes with bubble wrap interior. The packages were affixed with computer-printed address labels and six Forever stamps. All packages had a return address of “DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ” [sic] in Florida. Packages identified to date were addressed to:

George Soros
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
Former President Barack Obama
Former CIA Director John Brennan, care of CNN
Former Attorney General Eric Holder
The package addressed to former Attorney General Holder did not reach its intended destination, but was rerouted to the return address in Florida.

The FBI will continue to work with our federal law enforcement partners at the United States Secret Service, United States Postal Inspection Service, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as well as our state and local law enforcement partners, to identify and arrest the person or people responsible for sending these packages.

It is possible that additional packages were mailed to other locations. The FBI advises the public to remain vigilant and not touch, move or handle any suspicious or unknown packages.

If you have information about these packages, please contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or tips.fbi.gov. If you observe any suspicious activity that requires an immediate response, please call 911 or contact your local law enforcement.

      DEBBIE WASSERMAN SHULTZ should be interrogated by Congress and investigated by the FBI for mailing these Bombs to people!

      This Democrat Terrorism has GONE TOO FAR!!!
      There is more evidence here for her involvement than there was brought against Justice Kavanaugh.

      The gravity of the evidence for Wasserman-Shult'z's involvement demands her to prove her own innocence!

        These packages were obviously mailed by Bernie Sanders to frame Wasserman Shultz. Acting as the chair of the DNC, her Inside fixing for Hillary cost him the 2016 nomination and possibly the presidency.

          Jesus Christ was NOT a nationalist.

          Trumps vindictive rhetoric and racism is leading this country to violence.

          He will own it.

    O conspiracy, conspiracy, where art thou.Some right wing nuts are claiming false flag doth wave, just like they did over the bombings by Timothy McVeigh.

    Please come quick to justify their lunatic rage, they see George Soros behind every WaPo page, the sewage they must sump as it spews forth from their fearless leader Donald the _____.

    If only they had locked Hillary up and disbarred Eric Holder, then who could they blame? For the fight against darkness and evil is theirs alone that they claim to shoulder.

    It is really too bad that this lunatic mob is so lost in the land, because their awful sounds could truly make the devil's band, where in the ninth circle of hell Mephistopheles does wait for these idiots to come bearing the fruits of their hate.

    Oh how I will miss their simple ways, where right is wrong, truth is a lie, fact is fake, night is day, hetero is gay and man is woman.....ooops. did they really say that? or is that another false flag!

    Goodnight moon and goodnight everyone.

I would be willing to bet big money that this was not sent from right-wingers. No way this happening by a right wing organization right before mid-terms. It is the left that is doing everything possible (and violent) to disrupt and block. They have no policy or positions at the moment except hate, and they can't win elections without rigging them. They tried Russia, no dice. So then it was Kavanaugh, no dice. Antifa violence, etc, anything dirty, nasty, vile...it's just gross. I smell Democrat ruse all over this one...

    Alright. That's getting too close. We're sending the black helicopters right now.

    Actually, you're just an idiot not worth the fuel. Of course this was done by right-wingers. There are no violent progressives.

    Let's review:

    Which candidate told his supporters to punch protestors in the face and he'd pay the legal bills? (OK, the "he" kind gives it away).

    Which candidate recently praised another candidate for body slamming a reporter for asking a question?

    Which candidate called news reporters "enemy of the people" so frequently they had to hire private security?

        So,
        - Explosives that aren't really bombs.
        -Sent to politicians ( as if they wouldn't be screened right away )
        - Giving the politicians a chance to grandstand.

        Obviously Dems. Obviously a false flag.

        A left party who threatens, beats up anyone who they dont agree with, riot, and act like children.

        Keep crying and acting out dims, we know your play book.
        The country is finally being fixed from Obama, and we aren't listening to you anymore.
