The bomb packages were sent as the nation prepared for November 6 elections that will decide whether Democrats take control of one or both houses of Congress from Republicans and deny Trump the majority his party now holds in both chambers.

The NYPD says the device was taken from 375 Greenwich Street in the Tribeca neighborhood around 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

U.S. President Donald Trump blamed news media outlets on Thursday for stirring up anger and hateful political rhetoric as two more suspicious packages were discovered, addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert De Niro.

CNN reports the package had similar markings as the bombs from Wednesday. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, but with her last name misspelled. Officials removed the device from the scene.

This comes just one day after a number of Democrat officials received suspicious packages.

Suspected devices were also sent to several high-profile Democrats and CNN, which the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was investigating as an act of terrorism.

The packages were meant to arrive at the homes of the top Democrats but were intercepted by the authorities.

A series of pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton has deepened political tensions and fears two weeks before national midterm elections. This time, the package, which appears to contain a pipe bomb, was found at the TriBeCa Grill, which is owned by Robert DeNiro, a vocal opponent of Donald Trump.

None of the bombs detonated and no one was injured.

"We need to come together and send one very clear unmistakable message that threats or acts of political violence of any kind have no place in America".
