Mail bombing suspect reportedly had a list of more than 100 targets

Mail bombing suspect reportedly had a list of more than 100 targets

"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".

News reported authorities would alert the political, entertainment, and media figures who were listed as targets.

"And along came the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, who welcomed all extremists, all outsiders, all outliers, and he felt that somebody was finally talking to him", said attorney Ronald Lowy, who has represented Sayoc in the past and now represents his family. The packages were intercepted from DE to California.

Sayoc was previously known to law enforcement officials and had been arrested almost a dozen times in Florida, including in 2002 for making a bomb threat.

The video shows Sayoc casually chatting with co-workers, eating and rifling through stacks of papers.

According to sources, Sayoc told FBI agents and other authorities during a brief interview Friday at the bureau's South Florida field office in Miramar that he never meant to hurt any of the intended targets - though the FBI's director later said the pipe bombs were not "hoax devices".

The man arrested for mailing 14 bomb-like devices to top Democrats, including former presidents Clinton and Obama, made his first court appearance today in Miami, Florida.

In the end, prosecutors who charged Sayoc with five federal crimes Friday say the fervent supporter of President Donald Trump unwittingly left behind a wealth of clues, affording them a critical break in a coast-to-coast investigation into pipe bomb mailings that spread fear of election-season violence.

The bodybuilder had previously worked as a male dancer for several years and more recently as a pizza driver.

Sayoc's past is marked by encounters with law enforcement.

In 2002, he was arrested after Miami police said he threatened to bomb a power company, saying "it would be worse than September 11th".

The caller "threatened to blow up the building if FP&L turned off his light", the report said. His Twitter pages also showed he threatened other Hollywood stars, including Jim Carrey and Ron Howard, online.

And he was probably unaware that investigators scouring his social media accounts had found the same spelling mistakes on his online posts - "Hilary" Clinton, Debbie Wasserman "Shultz" - as on the mailings he'd soon be charged with sending.

"My feeling was, after one month in office, we didn't need to hear anything more from Trump's mouth - we already knew everything we needed to know about him", Moore wrote.

He took on Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee in the Florida governor's race, more than 80 times in October alone.

On September 20, in response to a Trump tweet, Sayoc posted a self-shot video of himself at what appears to be a Trump rally.

FBI Director Chirstopher Wray would not say if there might be other potential suspects associated with the bomb-filled packages, citing the ongoing investigation.

"Go Trump Trump Trump hey Joseph Robinette Biden Jr". Stick your BS all crap you talk where sun doesn't shine.

The complaint accused Sayoc of sending 13 bombs to 11 individuals, starting with billionaire Democratic donor George Soros.
