6th, unexploded package bomb found at Austin FedEx facility: Sources

A sixth, unexploded package bomb was discovered today at the FedEx facility in Austin, Texas, two sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News.

The package, which is intact, was discovered by FedEx workers, the company said in a statement. It's believed to have been sent by the same individual who mailed a package bomb that exploded at a FedEx facility near San Antonio this morning, officials said, and could yield major clues in the hunt for the serial bomber terrorizing Austin.

"We have also confirmed that the individual responsible [for Tuesday's package bomb] also shipped a second package that has now been secured and turned over to law enforcement," FedEx said in its statement but did not reveal which of its facilities the package was discovered in.

The two sources confirmed to ABC News the undetonated package was discovered at an Austin facility, bringing the total number of devices connected to the investigation to six.

Exclusive: Trump to boost exports of lethal drones to more U.S. allies

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump will soon make it easier to export some types of lethal U.S.-made drones to potentially dozens more allies and partners, according to people familiar with the plan.

Trump is expected to ease rules for such foreign sales under a long-delayed new policy on unmanned military aircraft due to be rolled out as early as this month, the first phase of a broader overhaul of arms export regulations.

U.S. drone manufacturers, facing growing competition overseas especially from Chinese and Israeli rivals who often sell under lighter restrictions, have lobbied hard for the rule changes.

The White House is expected to tout the move as part of Trump’s “Buy American” initiative to create jobs and reduce the U.S. trade deficit.

Ex-Hillary Adviser Philippe Reines Urges Dems to Appear on Fox News: Go to the Battlefield

Source: Mediaite

Former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines urged fellow Democrats to appear on Fox News more often, as he argued the “highest rated” network is a battlefield that the left should not leave “uncontested.”

Reines, who made the comments on Fox News’ Media Buzz today, defended his old boss Clinton, but suggested Democrats try something new in 2020 — even if it means going out of their comfort zone.

“I mean, Fox is the highest rated, most profitable network,” argued Reines. “I don’t see the point in just letting this battlefield go uncontested… I’m not criticizing [Clinton’s] campaign. I have been with her and been in politics for long enough to know this is a Democratic-wide problem.”

He continued, “It’s difficult coming on Fox, but it’s important. If I’m not sitting here, I don’t know who would be. And they would not be giving as strong a defense of a different point of view as I’m trying to give, and I don’t see how that helps anyone.”
