DOJ: Fingerprint led to FL bombing suspect

DOJ: Fingerprint led to FL bombing suspect

He was arrested at an auto parts store in the nearby city of Plantation.

Sayoc used the name in several of his social media accounts, including a now-deleted Facebook page under the name Cesar Altieri and a Twitter account under the same name. He was charged with one count of interstate transportation of an explosive, one count of illegal mailing of explosives, one count of threats against former presidents and others, one count of threatening interstate communications, and one count of assaulting federal officers.

Cesar Sayoc is seen in this undated booking photo, released by the Broward County Sheriff's office and provided by the Associated Press, in Miami.

"These terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country", Trump told an event at the White House.

It was not clear whether Sayoc had been formally charged in the rash of devices addressed in recent days to Democratic figures including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

The FBI said Friday that the package addressed to Booker, a New Jersey Democrat, was discovered in Florida and is "similar in appearance to the others".

Later, two more were discovered in California.

The wave of parcel bombs has been denounced by authorities as terrorism and comes less than two weeks before United States congressional elections. Trump and his allies in conservative media spread disinformation, gaslighting his supporters into a state of such hatred and delusion that we now have a radicalized terrorist who attempted to act on that hatred.

"There may be other packages in transit now and other packages on the way", Wray said.

"I am very proud of some of the people that were, if he had said anything along those lines, I certainly would have noted it, because we would have gotten into a political discussion".

There has been an outcry from Mr Trump's critics, who said his inflammatory rhetoric against Democrats and the press had created a climate for politically motivated violence.

What do we know about Cesar Sayoc?

It also looks like we have identified Sayoc's Twitter, and this was the last tweet he sent. He reportedly has ties to NY and is a registered Republican. Lowy, who represented Sayoc, said he showed no ability at the time to back up his threat with bomb-making expertise.

Sayoc's home address was listed in public records as an upscale gated apartment complex in the seaside town of Aventura, Florida. He has also faced charges of fraud and battery.

Sayoc declared bankruptcy in 2012, according to a court filing that said he lived with his mother at that time. He did not graduate, the spokeswoman added.

USA officials say he is the principal suspect, and that DNA evidence was used to track him down. Its windows were covered with pro-President Donald Trump stickers and other political stickers.

Trump's remarks came just hours after the President tweeted that "this "Bomb" stuff" was distracting from the upcoming midterms.

It's an incredible job by law enforcement. "We will never allow political violence to take root in our country".

The BBC's Nick Bryant in Washington says he appeared to be suggesting that the bombing campaign was a hoax.

The Clapper package, as with one sent on Wednesday to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, were marked care of CNN, a television network often critical of the administration and long provoking Trump's ire. Clapper said anyone who has criticized Trump should take extra precautions when handling their mail, adding: "This is not going to silence the administration's critics". In 2002, the Miami police arrested him for a bomb threat, a felony.

The first crude bomb to be discovered was delivered Monday to the suburban NY compound of George Soros, a liberal billionaire and major contributor to Democratic causes.

Before that, a total of 10 devices were sent to the following eight individuals, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

What was inside the packages? They were being examined by technicians at the FBI's forensic lab in Quantico, Virginia.
