Man Suspected Of Sending Explosive Devices To Democratic Figures Due In Court

Man Suspected Of Sending Explosive Devices To Democratic Figures Due In Court

He could face up to 48 years in prison if convicted.

This frame grab from video provided by WPLG-TV shows Federal Bureau of Investigation agents escorting Cesar Sayoc, in sleeveless shirt, in Miramar, Fla., on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018.

A lone fingerprint and a set of misspellings helped point Federal Bureau of Investigation agents to a Florida man with a long criminal record now charged with mailing home-made bombs to prominent critics of President Donald Trump.

The Washington Post, after painting a portrait of Sayoc as a serial liar who lived out of a van, cited a lawyer as saying the suspected mail bomber was drawn to Trump, because the president "welcomed all extremists, all outsiders, all outliers", without noting the fact that Trump has repeatedly condemned all violence.

President Donald Trump said Friday he has no plans to call former President Barack Obama or other individuals who were the intended targets of pipe bombs mailed this week.

He nearly certainly had no idea that lab technicians had linked DNA on two pipe bomb packages he was accused of sending to prominent Democrats to a sample previously collected by Florida state authorities. The homemade bombs "are not hoax devices", Wray stressed on Friday.

My crew first encountered Cesar Sayoc, the mail bomber/terrorist, 20 months ago when we went down to Melbourne, Florida, to film Trump's first "Trump 2020 Re-election Rally" - just one month after his inauguration. Authorities said Friday a fingerprint from the Waters mailing was key in identifying the subject.

Almost all of the other targets who were intended recipients of packages also turn up in derogatory or highly critical tweets, including Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and Maxine Waters. He said possible DNA evidence was found on another package.

"Criminals make mistakes so the more opportunities that law enforcement has to detect them, the greater chance they're going to be able to act on that, and that appears to be what happened here", said former Justice Department prosecutor Aloke Chakravarty, who prosecuted the Boston Marathon bombing case.

While CNN was among the recipients of packages this week, the vast majority of tweets from the account linked to the suspect show screen grabs or videos of television news coverage depict segments from Fox News.

'We will not tolerate such lawlessness, especially not political violence'. That was not uncommon for the amateur body builder and former stripper whose social media accounts are peppered with memes supporting Trump and posts vilifying Democrats. And even as Sayoc was being detained, officials with Democratic Sen.

A Facebook profile that appeared to belong to Sayoc featured videos and photos of him at multiple Trump rallies, including at least one in Florida.

A fourth, found in a mail facility in California, was addressed to Tom Steyer, a prominent Democratic donor, Steyer said.

"And they do have a major role to play as far as tone", Trump said.
