Last week, one of the 13 pipe bombs that were sent to various Democratic public figures ended up at the CNN offices in New York. The package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump.
The suspected bomber behind those attacks, Cesar Sayoc, is a registered Republican and Trump supporter who has attended the president's rallies. He was arrested last Friday and is due in court on federal charges.
It is unclear who is behind the second device.
