  • The suspicious package that arrived in CNN’s mail room in New
    York City on Wednesday was addressed to former CIA Director John
    Brennan, CNN reported.
  • The package was addressed to 10 Columbus Circle, in midtown
    Manhattan, and landed in the CNN mail room around 9:30 a.m.
  • NYPD evacuated the building and removed the package.
  • Explosive devices were also sent to former President Barack
    Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Debbie
    Wasserman Schultz, and billionaire George Soros.

The suspicious package that prompted an evacuation at CNN’s office in
New York City on Wednesday was addressed to former CIA Director
John Brennan, who has appeared on the network, CNN reported.

The network was broadcasting live when a fire alarm went off in
the Time Warner Center in midtown Manhattan, and the building had
to evacuate.

Though Brennan has been under contract with NBC News
since February 2018 as a “senior national security and
intelligence analyst,” he has appeared on CNN before.

Business Insider couldn’t immediately reach Brennan for comment,
but his representative told CNN he wasn’t commenting
on the incident.

CNN reported that the package was addressed to 10 Columbus
Circle, in midtown Manhattan, and landed in the CNN mail room
around 9:30 a.m.

Reporters said the package was deemed suspicious after X-rays in
the mail room revealed the package contained metal and wires.

The incident came amid news that the Secret Service had intercepted explosive devices
mailed to the residences of Bill and Hillary Clinton, in
Chappaqua, New York, and former President Barack Obama in
Washington, DC.

The news comes two days after a similar device was found at
billionaire Democratic donor George Soros’ home in Bedford, New
York.
