WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The FBI on Friday said it had recovered a suspicious package addressed to California billionaire Tom Steyer, a Democrat known for his ads calling for the impeachment of Republican President Donald Trump, exactly one week after federal authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc for mailing pipe bombs to Trump critics.

The FBI said on Twitter it recovered the package on Thursday night. Last Friday Steyer’s office said a package addressed to him had been found at a post office outside of San Francisco.
