Lord also said the network is beefing up its internal security in response to the threats.
CNN’s New York bureau in the Time Warner Building was evacuated as the New York Police Department responded to the potential threat.
In addition to CNN, “potential explosive devices” were sent to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s residence and former President Barack Obama.
The Secret Service intercepted the devices late Tuesday night and early Monday morning respectively and said the Clintons and Obamas were not “at risk of receiving them.”
This comes after billionaire George Soros received an explosive device in his mailbox at his home in New York, Monday afternoon.
The area has since been secured and the bomb squad called in.
The package sent to Wasserman Schultz was addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder, but listed the wrong address. Wasserman Schultz’s office was the return address.
