Five things to know about mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc

Five things to know about mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc

He said Sayoc had been talking about politics to everybody at the club for the last two weeks, preaching the need to elect Republicans during the November elections.

The man suspected of sending explosive devices to Democratic figures across the country will make his first court appearance Monday.

Investigators are also analyzing Sayoc's impounded van in which he lived and allegedly built the pipe bombs because it contains a trove of valuable evidence, from explosive-device materials to credit-card receipts.

Trump's supporters have accused Democrats of unfairly suggesting the president was to blame for the bomb scares.

In a news conference on Friday afternoon, Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray said a fingerprint on one of the bubble-lined manila envelopes led them to identify Sayoc, who was already in the criminal justice system because of previous arrests in Florida.

Last week, pipe bombs were sent in the mail to prominent Democratic Party figures like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as well as to CNN's NY offices.

"These are not hoax devices", Wray said of the bombs.

One law enforcement official said the fingerprint discovery was a major breakthrough.

The van's windows were plastered with pro-Trump stickers, the slogan "CNN SUCKS" and images of Democratic leaders with red cross-hairs over their faces, echoing the rancor of one of the most toxic election campaigns in decades.

The envelopes, addressed to Democrats such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and intercepted from DE to California, held vital evidence investigators said they used to arrest Sayoc on Friday outside of Miami.

In a blog post on his website, Moore writes that his crew first encountered Sayoc in Melbourne, Florida, early 2017, where the newly-inaugurated president was already holding his first "Trump 2020 Re-election Rally".

Sayoc was aggressive on Twitter, often threatening Democrats like former Vice President Joe Biden, in vitriolic, typo riddled tweets.

The latest package was intercepted at an Atlanta post office, CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker said in a post on Twitter.

"The judge looked at him, look at the prosecutor, and they saw this wasn't an individual who doesn't have that capacity and they put him on probation", Lowy said. The president said the "terrorist actions" should be punished "to the fullest extent of the law", and added that "political violence must never, ever be allowed in America". "But it was just his political views that scared me".

But hours later he launched his attack on the media, as well as on Mrs Clinton.

In a tweet earlier Friday, Trump referred to the investigation as "this "bomb" stuff", which he blamed for taking focus away from the upcoming midterm elections on November 6.
