There has been a great deal of suspicion surrounding the suspicious packages that have been sent to Democrat leaders, and CNN.
The timing of the attacks is curious, as we approach midterms, and the Democrats were suffering greatly in the polls and losing ground in key races, thanks in large part to the #JobsNotMobs campaign and the media focus on the migrant caravan that is making its way to our border.
Just made the mistake of watching an hour of cable news. The guests discussing the suspicious packages were ALL political columnists.
No bomb experts.
No security experts.
No terrorism/hoax experts.
Just blabbermouths looking to blame someone. ????????♂️

If you’ll recall, the media was relatively silent over recent Ricin attacks against our military, and a whole host of non-stop attacks on Trump supporters and GOP politicians for the past 2 years or more.
The Ricin to Mattis was not harmless
The bullets at Scalise were not harmless
The punches on Paul were not harmless
The HUNDREDS of rocks thrown at Trump supporters the last 2.5 years were not harmless.
The switchblade knife on House GOP candidate Rudy Peters was not harmless https://t.co/UkUhTFfDcr

The media and Democrats have jumped on the “bomb threat” story and many say they’re politicizing it.
As Twitchy reported, “former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik (9/11 Top Cop) was so troubled by the way CNN was politicizing the pipe bombs sent to ‘top’ Democratic officials that he left the set and walked out on the panel he was supposed to sit on.”
Now, as we find out more about the “bombs,” it’s starting to appear as if this was less of a deadly attack, as a number of the suspicious devices were not capable of exploding.
Some of the suspected mail bombs that were sent to Democratic officials and others in recent days were not capable of exploding, according to a new report on Thursday that cited several law enforcement officials.
“Some of the 10 suspected mail bombs addressed to high-profile Democrats and others over the last few days were flawed and not capable of exploding, while others have yet to be fully analyzed,” NBC News reported, adding that the investigators noted: “In some cases, the flaws were substantial. In others, more subtle.”
NBC News: Law enforcement sources say that at this point in the review of the bombs it is clear that some were incapable of exploding. Whether that was a design flaw or intentional is not yet known. Analysis is ongoing
They say to treat any suspicious package as if it were real.

Investigators said that it was not yet clear whether the devices were “hoaxes or simply cases of bad construction.”
