Two explosive devices were intercepted on Friday, reports the New York Times.

One was sent to Senator Cory Booker, a Democrat from New Jersey, and the other to CNN. Pipe bombs were sent to at least six prominent Democrats, including Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton on October 24.



The former presidents and secretary of state, as well as former attorney-general Eric Holder, congresswomen Maxine Waters of California and Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, as well as former CIA director John Brennan, were all targets of a plot now under investigation by federal law enforcement.
