NY police say they have safely destroyed a suspected letter bomb found at the home of billionaire businessman George Soros in NY state.
The Bedford Police Department said it received a call from the residence regarding a suspicious package.
The case has been passed to the FBI's joint terrorism taskforce. A Republican congressman accused him last week of paying migrants to "storm" the United States border, echoing Mr Trump's claim that Democrats are supporting...
An employee at Soros' home opened the package, and, after realising what it was, left the device in a wooded area.
Online records showed that Mr Soros resides at the address but he was not home at the time, The New York Times reported.
After authorities were contacted, an "extensive investigation" involving the Bedford Police Department, the Westchester County Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the FBI, commenced.
Billionaire philanthropist George Soros gets consistently vilified by conservative media for ostensibly underwriting almost every progressive protest from those who disrupted the confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh, to even paying for the "caravan" of Central American migrants to enter the United States in time to impact the midterm elections.
Bomb squad technicians proactively detonated the device, authorities said.
Soros' Open Society Foundation replied to both Trump's and Gaetz's tweets to deny their assertions. Most recently, President Trump and activists on the far-right claimed Soros had paid the protesters who came to Capitol Hill to oppose Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.
