Man charged in mail-bomb plot is a Florida Trump supporter

DNA nabbed mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc for law enforcement: Terror expert Florida man arrested in connection with pipe bomb packages
Ellis Copeland | 28 October, 2018, 14:56

Officials said Friday that more devices could still be in the mail.

Documents released Friday by the Broward County Sheriff's Office show Sayoc reported in May 2015 that more than $40,000 in goods were stolen from his van and an attached trailer, including 11 pieces of Donald Trump-brand clothing valued at $7,150.

Trump earlier this week said it is the news media's job to "set a civil tone".

He even seemed to suggest this morning shortly before Sayoc was arrested (calling into question whether he knew this was about to happen before he sent the tweet), that it was a false flag operation.

"This is a law-and-order administration", Sessions said at the Justice Department.

"Let this be a lesson to anyone, regardless of their political beliefs, that we will bring the full force of law against anyone who attempts to use threats, intimidation and outright violence to further an agenda".

Wray said investigators had yet to determine whether the bombs were actually "functional", but the devices could be unsafe "if subjected to the right combination of heat or shock or friction".

"Today's arrest does not mean we are all out of the woods", Wray said Friday at a news conference.

Announcing the arrest to a cheering audience at the White House, Trump said, "We must never allow political violence to take root in America - can not let it happen", Trump said.

ESPN Host Rips WWE For Holding Crown Jewel In Saudi Arabia
Saudi media had shown Khashoggi's son meeting with the crown prince, who reportedly expressed his condolences. Germany last month approved 416 million euros ($480 million) worth of arms exports to Saudi Arabia for 2018.


Authorities have recovered a cell phone, a laptop computer and other electronic devices from this suspect.

Wray declined to say whether the pipe-bomb devices could have detonated, noting that investigators are "still trying to determine whether or not they were functional".

The FBI called them "potentially destructive devices" - so either the bombmaker was good enough to ensure none would go off and never intended them to explode, or they were poorly constructed.

On Wednesday, a suspicious package was sent to the office of Wasserman Schultz hours after other top Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama, were also sent crude pipe bombs. It is addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan and contains a photograph of him marked with an "X".

All the people targeted by the suspicious packages have often been maligned by right-wing critics. On both the packages and the social media posts, her name was spelt "Shultz", according to the complaint.

Sayoc, who is a registered Republican, has a criminal record that dates back to 1992. Sayoc pleaded no contest to charges of third-degree grand theft and battery on a merchant in 2014, and was arrested in 2004 for possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and with intent to sell.

Public records showed numerous arrests over the years for domestic violence, theft and other charges, including the alleged bomb threat against a utility company. "There was something really off with him". My husband just called and said 'Remember that picture I texted you of that insane Trump van that delivered lunch to my office? Cory Booker was found in Florida, while another found in NY was addressed to former U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Democrats Booker and Harris are potential 2020 presidential candidates.

Federal Bureau of Investigation said the package was "similar in appearance to others" found this week.

In New York, police closed multiple streets in Manhattan after the package addressed to Mr. Clapper was discovered at a mail sorting facility. In another he peddled theories about the billionaire political donor George Soros, who also received a package bomb.
