Another possible explosive device addressed to a critic of President Trump has reportedly turned up.

Law enforcement officials say a suspicious package sent to former Vice President Joe Biden has been intercepted in Delaware, NBC News reports. CNN previously reported that authorities were attempting to locate this package, which had been returned to sender because the address was incorrect.

This package to Biden is reportedly similar to the ones containing explosive devices that were previously sent to Democratic politicians. On Wednesday, former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former CIA Director John Brennan, and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) were also targeted. An explosive device was sent to liberal billionaire George Soros earlier this week, and another suspicious package addressed to actor and Trump critic Robert De Niro was also found on Thursday morning.
