The House Intelligence Committee in -- exceeded a briefing on all of this congress and what can you tell us about this developing story the rice and.
-- -- basically what I can say is we have two incidents.
One a letter to contain rice and I think that's been confirmed.
Senator wicker of Mississippi and that's on the senate side and then just recently received information that there was a letter sent to the president what did.
Contain rice and I can't confirm whether that has been confirmed or not but that's initial.
Reports are that it might be right and there is a yes.
Go ahead we'll -- -- -- -- viewers often times it's preliminary tests in the field.
The FBI brings it back to lab and at the end of her final test that McCain didn't go ahead -- any any person of interest in.
Yes you have -- before that race is very dangerous -- it's a subject they can kill people so.
We have to be concerned there is what we've been told a person of interest not a suspect that a person of interest.
Who has been sending the letters on a regular basis to the senate.
And that's all we know about that situation.
Is there any indication at all.
-- this is connected to write some letters to what happened in Boston.
No but you raise a good point.
We -- the United States of America we have some of the best law enforcement officers are professionals who provide security.
And we have to make sure that we continue to do our jobs every day and that this does not affect what what we're doing for because.
We need to be concerned we need to make sure we protect lives.
We have to provide security -- that -- professionals do the job and that's that's extremely important that we continue on with our lives we have a lot to do over here in congress right now.
Well we know that you guys certainly busy that's for sure he -- continent like to ask you a little bit about what you've learned about the Boston terror attack we had -- detective -- former detective.
On our show earlier today after former bond technician and he's a -- this case is finding out.
This device where -- -- -- where was it manufactured what do we know.
-- that this so called pressure -- what can you tell us what what.
We know the pressure cooker was used at least in one of the bombs that went off.
The pressure cooker has been -- especially -- terrorists in Afghanistan Pakistan and India.
We we these terrorists have an al-Qaeda.

It talks about how to build a bomb and the use of pressure from.
It's been used again as I.

Is that we find out first hopefully where this was bought and and we follow through the senate.
Do we now know that yes -- did you -- -- do we know any any indication about where was purchased.
No we don't at this time you've you've got again we have to step aside.
And let the FBI federal state -- all working together in this case the FBI are probably some of the best investigators in the world.
And enable use their expertise and to be able to get all the data that scientific data we need to take this to another level.
They also raises another issue is that the public can help here anyone who took pictures she was around there we need to make sure that we get all that information and data.
But because by getting that we need a break we need to find someone who has a picture that first.
And -- and I -- my answer -- -- only thirty seconds did you get any indication or any information about whether or not this device was assembled near the sites.
No we don't.
At this point we don't but we do know that there were 22 bombs went off it's not easy to go into a crowded area and and -- two bombs but.
That's we don't know that the kind of we will find this and get this information -- investigators need time right.
