Officials Find Bomb-Making Supplies Inside Suspect’s Van

Officials Find Bomb-Making Supplies Inside Suspect’s Van

Asked if he planned to tone down the partisan rhetoric at rallies, which his critics contend has deepened political divisions in the country, Trump replied: "I think I've been toned down".

The bubble-wrapped manila envelopes, addressed to Democrats such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and intercepted from DE to California, held vital forensic evidence that investigators say they leveraged to arrest Sayoc four days after the investigation started. Sayoc's social media accounts are peppered with memes supporting Trump, denigrating Democrats, and promoting conspiracy theories.

The clues, authorities say, led them to a 56-year-old man with a long criminal history who'd previously filed for bankruptcy and appeared to be living in his van, showering on the beach or at a local fitness center.

MI is another battleground state in the Midwest that Democrats lost in 2016, despite Obama's visit the day before the election. He was wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat.

All were sent through the U.S. Postal Service system and intercepted before reaching their intended targets without exploding. 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. Soros, the billionaire progressive political donor, was targeted this week by a package bomb.

Also earning a mention: California Rep. Maxine Waters, another frequent Trump target who was sent a package.

The charges include inter-state transportation of an explosive, mailing of explosives, threats against former presidents and threatening inter-state communications, Sessions told a news conference.

A law enforcement official told CNN the van was sent to Miramar, where an Federal Bureau of Investigation field office is located.

The feds said Sayoc's fingerprint and DNAwere found on some of the mail bombs he sent out.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions gives details following the suspects arrest. She says Twitter got back to her within 24 hours and said the tweet did not violate their rules against abusive behavior.

Trump focused his remarks on Friday on praising law enforcement for "having done an incredible job" in arresting a suspect.

As he has done in other times of crisis, Trump on Friday delivered carefully worded remarks that denounced the hateful actions, declaring that "these terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country". His quote marks around "Bomb" were striking, suggesting the president might doubt the authenticity of the scare.

A van belonging to Cesar Sayoc covered in blue tarp was towed by FBI investigators to FBI Miramar Headquarters. It was taken by the FBI Friday in Plantation after Sayoc was arrested. Still, investigators said they were treating the devices as "live" explosives, not a hoax. Patrol cars shut down the surrounding streets, leaving rows of businesses inaccessible for part of the morning. Ritchie alerted Twitter of the tweet made from Sayoc's account, which contained several disturbing images and statements. (1830 GMT). A federal law enforcement source said charges would likely be brought by federal prosecutors in Manhattan. He is scheduled to appear in federal court on Monday in Florida.

A public defender listed as Sayoc's attorney of record in New York, Sarah Baumgartel, could not immediately be reached for comment. "We hope that he will be presented in court and brought to NY expeditiously so that the case can proceed", Baumgartel said.

A tweet from the account law enforcement officials say belongs to Cesar Sayoc, apparently threatening former Vice President Joe Biden.

The police department said the FBI investigated a home linked to Sayoc Friday afternoon.

Obama was in MI campaigning for Democratic Sen.
