Police Arrest Man They Believe Is Connected To ‘MAGA Bomber’ Packages

Members of the Miami Dade County Bomb Squad walk outside a postal facility in Opa-locka Fla. late Thursday night. More

DNA was key in helping law enforcement book pipe bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc on Friday for allegedly sending a dozen suspicious packages to prominent Democrats, a security expert said Friday.

On Friday, two more packages containing explosive devices were found, NBC News reports. Cory Booker, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

Trump condemned political violence and applauded federal, state and local authorities for arresting Cesar Sayoc, who is suspected of mailing pipe bombs to former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, actor Robert De Niro and other high-profile individuals.

Fox News contributor Rochelle Ritchie said Friday that she reported such a tweet by the suspect earlier this month - only to be told by Twitter that "there was no violation of the Twitter Rules against abusive behavior".

The investigation into this week's wave of suspicious packages focused on southern Florida and a mail sorting facility in the area.

Records for Sayoc show he is associated with an address in Aventura, Florida, and is registered as a Republican in Florida.

He also met Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MbS) who offered him his condolences for his father's death. Mevlut Cavusoglu is Turkey's foreign minister.

Cesar Sayoc has been charged with five federal crimes including threats against former presidents and faces up to 48 years in prison if found guilty, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said. He has been convicted on theft, stolen property and traffic charges and in 2002 on a threat to "throw, place, project or discharge any destructive device".

In 2004, the 56-year-old was arrested on multiple charges including fraud and drug possession.

Similar packages addressed to Clinton and Obama were intercepted on their way to Clinton's NY home, where she lives with former President Bill Clinton, and to Washington, where Obama lives with his wife, Michelle Obama.

Fiori said the arrested man did not resist and "had that look of, 'I'm done, I surrender"'.

The return address on the packages listed the South Florida office of Rep.

The Duke later travelled to Colo-i-Suva Forest Park, where he planted a tree and unveiled a plaque to mark its dedication. A Kensington Palace spokeswoman told The Associated Press that her visit was cut short due to crowd management issues.

None of the bombs exploded, but FBI Director Chris Wray said Friday, "These are not hoax devices".

He condemned the mailed bombs.

After Sayoc's arrest was made public, President Trump read scripted remarks at a prescheduled event today condemning the attacks, but then continued his reckless rhetoric.

Mr Trump's supporters accused Democrats of unfairly suggesting the President was to blame for the bomb scare.

According to Wray, as well as NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill, there may be other unsafe packages still in transit or in postal warehouses, so it's important that Americans be aware, alert, and ready to report anything suspicious. As in comments earlier in the week, he did not mention that the package recipients were all Democrats or officials in Obama's administration, in addition to CNN, a news network he criticizes nearly daily.

The first bomb discovered was delivered Monday to the suburban NY compound of Soros, a major contributor to Democratic causes.

Not surprisingly, the most Mega Million jackpot winners in the past five years have come from states with the largest populations. But the odds aren't especially favorable, at about 1 in 88 quadrillion (that's 88,000,000,000,000,000).

The development came amid a nationwide manhunt for the person responsible for at least 13 explosive devices addressed to prominent Democrats including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.
