USA bomb suspect set for Florida court appearance

Facebook

Investigators and bomb squads were called to a post office in Atlanta on Monday about a suspicious package sent to CNN, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Monday, just hours before a court hearing for a Florida man accused of sending packages containing explosive material to prominent Democrats.

The Trump fanatic is suspected of sending at least 14 bombs to President Donald Trump's critics, including former president Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and CNN.

Some of the devices were discovered in New York City and Westchester County.

At a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, Friday evening, Trump first thanked law enforcement for capturing the mail bomb suspect, identified as 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc from South Florida.

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.

Mr. Trump said he found the press obsession with Mr. Sayoc's political leanings untoward and compared it with coverage of the man who attacked Republicans at baseball practice a year ago, gravely wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

Pittsburgh shooting: Suspect expressed hatred of Jews
Victims were killed at all three locations where services were going on. "Anti-Semitism "is nearly becoming normalized". In a statement, Dayton called the shooting "a hateful act of violence committed against the Jewish community".

In addition, a number of press outlets attributed social media accounts to Sayoc that were rife with posts mocking Democrats, as well as photos of Sayoc wearing a hat bearing President Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan.

A suspicious package addressed to CNN's office in Atlanta was intercepted on Monday, the network said, adding that all of its mail is being screened off-site. "Though his views and political rhetoric seemed off-putting, people who knew him said he wasn't capable of violence".

Steyer denounced Trump in a tweet later Sunday afternoon in which he said the president had "just tweeted at me in his typical insulting style".

Mr Zucker said there was no imminent danger to the CNN Centre. The arrest was made at an AutoZone store in Plantation, Florida.

Filipino-American Cesar Sayoc, 56, a registered Republican with a criminal history and reported past as a stripper, was born in NY and lived in a van covered in pro-Trump and anti-liberal stickers. The package featured a Camden, New Jersey, address, reports NBC News, but may have ended up in Florida because of its return address - the other packages listed Rep. "He has often referred to major news organizations as 'the enemy of the people, ' and has shown contempt for CNN", a New York Times article stated two days before the bomber was caught.

The FBI's Atlanta bomb squad and other law enforcement personnel responded after being notified by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Kevin Rowson, an FBI spokesman, said in a statement. Cory Booker another was sent to James Clapper, a former director of national intelligence; and a third was intercepted before it reached Sen.
