Two more suspicious packages, similar to those intercepted before reaching U.S. President Barack Obama and other high-profile Democrats, were found addressed to California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the FBI said on Wednesday.
The FBI is confirming that two additional suspicious packages, addressed to Waters, have been intercepted that are similar in appearance to five others that were received.
The FBI updated its tally in a tweet Wednesday night.
It came as federal authorities said a package addressed to Waters with similar markings and characteristics to the other devices was intercepted at a Los Angeles mail facility.
Earlier in the day, Waters said her Washington office was the target of a suspicious package, though it wasn’t immediately clear if that was related to the others.
Authorities say pipe bombs addressed to Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, former CIA director John Brennan and former Attorney General Eric Holder have also been intercepted in recent days.
The two parcels intended for Waters, a veteran Democratic U.S. representative from Los Angeles and an outspoken critic of Republican President Donald Trump, take to eight the total number of suspected package bombs under investigation.
