He has footage of the suspected pipe bomber at a Donald Trump rally previous year.

All mail at all of CNN's domestic bureaus has been screened at off-site facilities since Wednesday, so the package would have not come to the building.

Moore's face was on Sayoc's van with a bullseye target over it. Moore said Traverse City Police searched his home to see if the suspected pipe bomber had sent him anything. Authorities believe he was assembling explosives in his van. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity to the AP.

Two earlier bombs were also sent to CNN in the past week.

The package "was intercepted at an Atlanta post office", CNN President Jeff Zucker said in a memo to staffers.

The minimum storage configuration is 128GB, and the phone will also run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, as previously reported. OnePlus started with the "T" model of smartphones from the OnePlus 3T back in 2016 and since has produced two phones per year.

CNN obtained a photo of the package, which appears to be identical to the ones sent last week to several prominent Democratic leaders and CNN's NY offices.

More bombs were sent to a range of prominent Democrats, including former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and other frequent targets of Trump's scorn.

Spokesman Kevin Rowson said via email that the agency had been notified by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service of a suspicious package that arrived at 400 Pryor Street in downtown Atlanta, which is the address of a post office.

Suspected mail bomber Cesar Sayoc, appeared briefly in a Miami federal court on Monday, his first court appearance before being extradited to NY.

Flanked by his newly retained three private attorneys, Dan Aaronson, James Scott Benjamin and Peter Patanzo, Sayoc appeared in a federal courthouse in Miami Monday afternoon.

He appeared in court shackled, wearing a khaki prison jumpsuit. Dressed in tan jail clothes, he said his name in a raspy voice and nodded that he understood his legal rights.

CNN was first to report the additional package Monday, saying the latest mailer addressed to the news organization was discovered at a post office in Atlanta.

Later on Monday, a manila envelope bearing "some similarities" to last week's packages containing potentially explosive devices was found in an editor's mailbox.

On Friday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said there is strong evidence linking Mr. Sayoc to the bombings that terrorized the nation.
