Police investigating telephone bomb threat at CNN offices

CNN said several fire alarm bells signalling an evacuation rang inside its newsroom shortly after 10:30 pm.

Around midnight, CNN said police had given the all clear for people to go back into the building. We grabbed what we could and got out of the building and now, we are standing outside of the building, ' Lemon said on CNN.

When the phone call originally came in, security officers evacuated the building as a precaution and called the police.

Pre-recorded programming was played temporarily as live studios were put on lockdown.

"Right now CNN is airing taped programming due to the disruption".

Donald Trump Confirms He Will Nominate William Barr as Next Attorney General
After passing his senate confirmation hearing unanimously, he served as the 77th U.S. attorney general from 1991-1993. Rove noted Barr respects Mueller, who led the FBI's criminal division when the former was AG under Bush.

Police searched thoroughly the evacuated building and found nothing to substantiate the threat and later gave the all clear.

It didn't take long for some people to link the bomb threat to US President Donald Trump and his war of words with mainstream media. The NYPD said they were investigating.

All vehicle and pedestrian traffic around the CNN offices had also been blocked by police, said New York Police Detective Hubert Reyes.

Police gave the all clear shortly before midnight Eastern time (5am United Kingdom time) after dozens of police officers searched the building floor by floor. "The building is secure and safe for everyone to return in the morning".

Thursday morning, Fox News online reported, "CNN's Don Lemon was all-in with his anti-Trump rhetoric Wednesday night, saying he wouldn't shake the president's hand and bashing him for removing his coat".
