The FBI has confirmed that an 11th pipe bomb package has been recovered in Florida, similar in appearance to the others. It was addressed to the Democratic Senator from New Jersey Cory Booker.

The FBI also is seeking information from the public to aid in the investigation of the suspicious packages. “No piece of info is too small. Do not hesitate to call the FBI tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI or go online to Tipsters can remain anonymous,” FBI said.

The investigating agencies have not yet solved the case of a series of explosive devices that were sent by unknown people on Wednesday to President Trump’s critics including Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, and others including CNN. Earlier on Monday, a pipe bomb was found in the mailbox of billionaire George Soros who is a staunch supporter of Democrats.

Although none of the bombs exploded, they targeted those who are usually criticized by Trump in his hate speeches and mischievous tweets.

Trump had blamed media for the attempted bomb attacks, saying that people’s anger is a result of fake news delivered by the mainstream media. Today again Trump ridiculed CNN and his opponents who believe that the violent act is a result of Trump’s hateful rhetoric against his critics.

“Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing. Yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, ‘it’s just not Presidential!’” Trump complained.

Meanwhile, on a CNN show, former CIA Director John Brennan said President Trump’s rhetoric is “un-American,” and has “emboldened individuals to take matters into their own hands.” It was Brennan’s first public remarks following a suspicious package addressed to him.
