Mail bomb suspect to face hearing as lawmakers call for civility

Who Is Cesar Sayoc? What We Know About Suspicious Package Suspect So Far

The man accused of sending package bombs to critics of President Trump is scheduled to appear before a judge Monday in Miami federal court.

A suspicious package addressed to CNN's Atlanta headquarters was intercepted on Monday morning, the network said, five days after one of 14 pipe bombs sent to some of U.S. President Donald Trump's leading critics forced the evacuation of CNN's NY office.

Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida after investigators said they identified him through fingerprint and DNA evidence.

Sayoc is now facing charges of "transporting explosives across state lines, illegally mailing explosives, threatening former presidents and others, threatening interstate communications and assaulting federal officials", according to the Washington Post.

Cesar Sayoc, the 56-year-old man who is now facing five federal charges in connection with 13 intercepted suspicious packages, has a lengthy criminal record in Florida.

They ordered him to the ground, Fiori said, and he did not resist.

Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and anti-Trump agitator Tom Steyer were also found. Oscar victor and outspoken Trump critic Robert De Niro also was targeted.




Mr Trump's latest tirade came after police charged a staunch supporter over the bombs sent to high-profile figures, including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Robert De Niro, as well as to CNN. The article also omits that Trump is the first president to follow through on a promise to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, a move that drew praise from Jews all over the world.

The video shows Cesar Sayoc - who has been accused of mailing bombs to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and even actor Robert De Niro - amid a crowd of angry Trump supporters in February 2017.

Sayoc was sentenced to probation in August 2002 for threatening to throw a bomb during a conversation with a Florida utility representative, the AP reported.

Trump said in a tweet: "Just watched Wacky Tom Steyer, who I have not seen in action before, be interviewed by Jake Tapper". One Democratic staffer on Capitol Hill has been charged with "doxxing" senators, releasing their personal phone numbers and addresses online to encourage activists to target them.

The Federal Public Defender's Office in NY has already been appointed to represent Sayoc, 56, who was living in his white van. Authorities told the Associated Press the devices were not rigged to explode when the packages were opened, but they said they were not sure if that is because the devices were poorly made or were not meant to harm.

Besides that, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, his social media posts that traffic in online conspiracy theories, parody accounts and name-calling include some of the same misspellings as were noticed on the 13 packages he was charged with sending. The Secret Service said neither package reached its intended recipient.
