The FBI confirmed on Friday that it discovered a suspicious package in Florida addressed to New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and another one in New York addressed to former intelligence chief James Clapper.
The Florida package contained an explosive device and was discovered in the same classification center of the Postal Service Center in Opa-Locka, where at least one other suspicious package was sent this week to Democratic targets, reported NJ.com.
None of the 12 packages has detonated and no one has been injured. The first package addressed to billionaire George Soros, known for his political contributions to Democratic candidates, was found Monday in a mailbox outside his home in New York.
Then, on Wednesday, a series of suspicious packages were sent to former President Barack Obama, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, US Rep. Maxine Waters, former Attorney General Eric Holder and the former director of the CIA John Brennan.
The #FBI has confirmed three additional packages, similar in appearance to the others – one in New York addressed to Robert DeNiro, and two in Delaware addressed to former Vice President Joseph Biden.

Two packages were addressed to Waters, one intercepted in Los Angeles and the other in Maryland, while the package addressed to Brennan was directed to the New York office of CNN at the Time Warner Center, prompting an evacuation while reporters reported Live.
The Holder package had the return address of Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, as well as some of the other packages, and it was sent to his office in Florida because he had the wrong address of the former attorney general.
On Thursday, two suspicious packages were found addressed to Joe Biden at the Delaware postal facilities, while another was found outside the New York restaurant of actor Robert De Niro, a prominent critic of President Donald Trump.
Federal investigators say they discovered that at least one of those packages went through a mail sorting center near the Opa-locka airport in Florida, the Miami Herald confirmed.
