Chris Swecker, a former FBI assistant director, told Fox News on Wednesday that Democrats might be to blame for a series of mail bombs targeting former and current Democratic officials.
During breaking coverage of the explosive devices sent to former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, billionaire George Soros and former Attorney General Eric Holder, Fox News host Harris Faulkner asked Swecker to lend his expertise to the discussion.
“We’re already seeing a little bit of a pattern,” Swecker said. “They’re going to be looking at this as a potential terrorist motive, whether it’s on one side or the other.”
“And as you correctly pointed out earlier,” he told Faulkner. “This doesn’t necessarily mean someone is espousing some sort of conservative ideology and targeting Democrats. It could be someone who is trying to get the Democratic vote out and incur sympathy.”
“That’s interesting,” Faulkner agreed.
“It could go either way,” Swecker added.
“And that’s why we always caution against that [speculation],” Faulkner noted. “They could be the same facts for different reasons as you’re pointing out.”

Trump’s unhinged fans get even more detached from reality as his chances fade
A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose. After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on. The economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Americans are losing health insurance by the millions, and Republicans are responding by trying to shortchange unemployment benefits for the millions of people who've lost their jobs.
Trump creates a ‘minefield’ of legal problems for his own staff with plan for White House acceptance speech: report
President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he might deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House. But legal experts who spoke with Bloomberg warned that might not be a good idea.
The publication described the proposal as "a minefield of problems for the staff charged with putting such an event together."
The Hatch Act forbids the use of government property and employees for political activities. Although the president and vice president are exempted from the federal law, their staff at the White House could face repercussions.
