Pipe Bomb and Powder Delivered to CNN Was Harmless

So the bombs were phony. I wondered why none had exploded.


The pipe bomb and white powder that forced an evacuation at CNN headquarters in New York City Wednesday morning were harmless, a law enforcement source told the Associated Press.

The device was similar in construction to those sent Wednesday to former President Barack Obama, former attorney general Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D., Fla.), and Representative Maxine Waters of California. The NYPD said the explosives were live during a Wednesday afternoon press conference but subsequent reporting suggests they were not functional.

All of the devices carried a parody ISIS flag featuring comedian Larry the Cable Guy’s signature slogan, “git ‘er done,” NBC News reported late Wednesday…

President Trump called the spate of attacks “despicable” in a Wednesday statement…

“In these times we have to unify,” he said. “We have to come together and send one very clear, strong unmistakeable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”

“As we speak, the packages are being inspected by top explosive experts and a major federal investigation is now underway,” he added.

    It will be interesting to learn whose, if any, fingerprints are found when all that clear tape around the package is examined.

    I love how the discussions are going about this. The Reps say we need to find out who did it and not be accusing anyone or any side. Then, the Dems agree, but proceed to condemn the Reps and P.Trump. LOL It is actually expected…………and funny.
