Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Who Received Suspicious Package, ‘Won't Be Cowed'

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Thursday said that she and other critics of President Donald Trump would "not be cowed" by the explosive devices sent to them.

Two of her district offices, in Sunrise and Aventura, were evacuated on Wednesday after reports of a suspicious package at the Sunrise office. Wasserman Schultz made the comments at an event in Plantation.

A number of the devices discovered this week were packed in envelopes with bubble-wrap interiors bearing six American flag stamps and the return address of the representative.

Wasserman Schultz, the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, was accused by rivals of Hillary Clinton of secretly helping the party's eventual presidential nominee.

Investigators probing the crude pipe bombs are still trying to determine whether the devices were intended to detonate or simply to sow fear, law enforcement officials told The Associated Press on Thursday.
