New York BOMB THREAT as Time Warner Building evacuated

New York BOMB THREAT as Time Warner Building evacuated

Outside the building, CNN's Brian Stelter and Don Lemon continued to broadcast.

TheWrap's Jon Levine shared a clip of the moment Lemon's program abruptly went to break due to the threat.

The threat came Thursday night when a caller indicated there were five devices in the building, according to a law enforcement source.

This was the third time that CNN had faced an evacuation over bomb threats.

Lemmon said fire alarms rang and a loudspeaker told them they needed to evacuate.

"Right now CNN is airing taped programming due to the disruption". The NYPD said they were investigating. "We grabbed what we could and got out of the building and now, we are standing outside of the building", Lemon said.

Although Diaz now has legal residency in the USA , she claims there were "many people without papers" working at the resort. Trump boasted during the presidential campaign that no illegal immigrants worked at any of his properties.

"At 10:07pm a bomb threat was called into the Time Warner Center and the building was evacuated", the NYPD wrote on Twitter.

Police tweeted that 25 Columbus Circle was evacuated, and that personnel swept the building and decided it was safe.

The one sent to the CNN was addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, who is a contributor to MSNBC and NBC News but has no relation to CNN.

In October, CNN was targeted in a wave of pipe bombs mailed to the network as well as to prominent critics of President Donald Trump.

On Thursday night shortly after 10 p.m. Trump tweeted "FAKE NEWS - THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"

Security officers evacuated the building as a precaution and called police.
