Tests showed the powder found with an alleged "pipe bomb" sent to CNN was harmless, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press on Wednesday night.
A law enforcement official says tests have determined that a powder found inside an envelope delivered to CNN along with a pipe bomb was harmless.The New York Times reported Wednesday that bomb technicians who studied the device said it "had hallmarks" of a "fake explosive" of "the kind more typically depicted on television and in movies, rather than devices capable of detonating."
As the New York Times reported:
None of the devices harmed anyone, and it was not immediately clear whether any of them could have. One law enforcement official said investigators were examining the possibility that they were hoax devices that were constructed to look like bombs but would not have exploded.NBC News reported Wednesday that the device sent to CNN had a parody ISIS flag with the text "Get 'Er Done" on it.
Though Governor Andrew Cuomo said early Wednesday that a "device" was mailed to his office it later turned out to be "a letter and a USB flash drive" with information about the Proud Boys that was completely unrelated.
Internet sleuths allegedly tracked down the exact clock on the "bomb" and found it's a car clock without an alarm function, which would be needed to trigger a detonator.
