1. SOUNDBITE (English) John Miller, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counterterrorism:
"As the governor outlined, this begins on Monday night with a package that was delivered to a residence in Westchester County, that was responded to by the Westchester County Police, the Bedford Police and FBI Special Agent Bomb Technicians. That package was disrupted and taken to the FBI lab. Overnight, late last night, we received word of the package that was delivered to the Clinton residence -- or was intercepted before delivery to the Clinton residence in Chappaqua, New York. That is also going to the FBI lab. After that, we were notified by the Secret Service that they had received a nearly identical package in Washington, addressed to the Obamas. At that point, we began to take additional proactive steps. We had gone to locations the day before associated with the first individual who was targeted. Today, we went out to offices of elected officials, media outlets, television. And in fact, when the package was discovered here in the CNN mail room, we had NYPD personnel present, who were showing them what these look like and what to be on the lookout for. So, at this point, we are talking with other FBI field offices, the JTTF (referring to the Joint Terrorism Task Force) about other incidents that are unfolding in other places. But suffice it to say, it appears that an individual or individuals sent out multiple similar packages."

"The incident here today, once the package was discovered, Emergency Service was notified. They called the bomb squad. The bomb squad was able to safely remove a device contained in that package using the total containment vessel, the TCV, or in simple terms, the bomb truck. That has gone to our range at Rodman's Neck, where FBI Special Agent Bomb Technicians will work with our people on how to get it to the next stop, which should be the FBI lab so all of this evidence can be examined together."

Crude pipe bombs targeting Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, CNN and others were intercepted Tuesday night and Wednesday in a rash of attacks two weeks before nationwide elections that could reshape Congress and serve as a referendum on the first two years of President Donald Trump's presidency.
The devices, which officials said shared a similar design, were aimed at prominent Democrats and a cable news network often criticized by political conservatives.
A similar device was found Monday at the New York compound of liberal billionaire George Soros, a major contributor to Democratic causes.
The bombs overtook other campaign news in an already-tense political season, which has included pitched fights over immigration, the Supreme Court and sexual violence against women.
The White House quickly condemned the attacks aimed at Democrats and perceived foes of the administration.
All the confirmed bombs appeared to come from the same person or persons, said John Miller, the New York Police Department's head of intelligence and counterterrorism, who briefed reporters in New York.
The U.S. Secret Service intercepted a bomb that was addressed to Hillary Clinton at the Chappaqua, New York, home she shares with former President Bill Clinton, and another that was sent to former President Obama at his home with Michelle Obama in Washington.
A police bomb squad removed still another from CNN's New York headquarters, which was evacuated early Wednesday.
Overhead TV shots showed a truck carrying that device, which law enforcement officials said was linked to the other explosives, being driven away.
The package sent to CNN contained a live explosive and envelope with white powder, and officials said the substance was being tested to see if it was dangerous.
