Yet another suspicious package addressed to a Democratic lawmaker has reportedly turned up.
This is the fifth possible explosive device uncovered Wednesday — others were sent to CNN (addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan), former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former Attorney General Eric Holder. The package addressed to Holder was delivered to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) because her name was on the return address and Holder's address was listed incorrectly. Earlier this week, an explosive device was also sent to liberal billionaire George Soros in New York.
All the Democrats targeted are frequent critics of President Trump. Waters especially has personally clashed with the president: After she said earlier this year that Trump administration officials should "absolutely" be confronted and harassed in public, Trump tweeted, "Be careful what you wish for Max!" The White House has condemned the attempted attacks, calling them "despicable."
