A package containing a suspected explosive device that was sent to the CNN headquarters at the Time Warner Center in New York City on Wednesday was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, a frequent critic of Donald Trump, CNN’s Josh Campbell reports.

In August, Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance. In a statement, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed the former CIA director’s “lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation’s most closely held secrets.”
