Suspect in USA package bombs traced with fingerprint, DNA

Well, for starters, CNN does suck. Just two days earlier, CNN's offices in NY were evacuated when the package for Brennan, addressed to him at the network, was found in the post room.

Sayoc was arrested Friday in Plantation, accused of orchestrating 12 packages appearing to contain live explosives that were sent to prominent critics of Trump, including Clinton, former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert De Niro. Democrats Booker and Harris are potential 2020 presidential candidates.

The complaint stated that one post made on Wednesday criticised George Soros, the billionaire activist, who two days earlier had received the package.

Trump previously called former CIA Director John Brennan, who was another target of the would-be bomber, a "loudmouth, partisan, political hack who can not be trusted with the secrets to our country!"

A man who operates a property management office near the Florida auto parts store where the mail bomb suspect parked his van said the suspect didn't resist when armed police officers swarmed and arrested him. However, the address for Holder was incorrect, and Wasserman-Schultz's office in Sunrise was the return address.

The latest packages intercepted came Friday morning: to New Jersey U.S. Sen.

FBI Director Chris Wray said Sayoc left a fingerprint on the IED sent to California Congresswoman Maxine Waters.

A former Democratic congressional aide and current political commentator said she reported mail bombing suspect Cesar Sayoc for Twitter threats two weeks ago, but the social media site dismissed the report, according to USA Today.

If put on trial and convicted, he faces up to 48 years in prison in what politicians on both sides of the aisle have condemned as domestic terrorism. But the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Seminole Gaming and Hard Rock International all said they could find no evidence to support that. This also happens to mirror the verbal approach our President has taken toward the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice. "Each device consisted of roughly 6 inches of PVC pipe, a small clock, a battery, some wiring" & "energetic material" that is potentially explosive".

A picture on Sayoc's Facebook page shows him wearing a red Trump "Make America Great Again" hat and photos have since surfaced of him attending Trump rallies in Florida.

With his possible identity known, investigators checked his cell phone number against cell phone towers in the vicinity to see if they matched the location and timing for when the packages originated, according to a law enforcement official.

"In Washington, they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team, nobody in my administration got indicted", Obama said.

Investigators first went to the home of Sayoc's mother in Aventura, but were told he wasn't there, according to a law enforcement official.

The authorities impounded the vehicle on Friday.

Authorities were reportedly able to track down Sayoc through cell phone records. In the AutoZone parking lot, agents found the white van, where he appeared to be living. He also studied at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, for one year in the mid-1980s and played soccer at the school, a spokeswoman for the university said.
