Pipe-Bomb Suspect Cesar Sayoc Kept Target List

Pipe-Bomb Suspect Cesar Sayoc Kept Target List

Federal prosecutors want no bail for a man accused of sending pipe bombs to prominent Democrats around the country.

It was not immediately clear whether the package was connected to the 14 the Federal Bureau of Investigation has said were mailed recently to prominent Democratic and media figures who have been critical of President Donald Trump. A judge set another hearing for Friday on whether to grant bail to Sayoc and to discuss when he will be sent from Miami to NY, where five federal charges were filed.

The official said authorities had recovered soldering equipment, a printer, and stamps similar to those used on the package bombs after arresting Sayoc last week in Florida.

Sayoc appeared in federal court in Miami for the first time Monday, his demeanor relaxed as he sat behind seven other inmates who were there for other hearings.

Balsamo reported from Washington.

One of the suspicious packages, with the name and address blanked out.




As a result of Wednesday's package, all mail destined for CNN's United States offices is now being screened first at off-site facilities.

On Monday, following the interception of the suspicious package in Atlanta, Zucker said the same protocol would have applied in that incident.

At least some listed a return address of U.S. Rep. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. A judge set another hearing for Friday on whether to grant bail to Sayoc and to discuss when he will be sent from Miami to NY, where five federal charges were filed.

The FBI said it believes the package intended for CNN headquarters in Atlanta that was discovered Monday is similar to those that Sayoc is accused of sending.

On Friday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said there is strong evidence linking Mr. Sayoc to the bombings that terrorized the nation.

Later on Monday, a manila envelope bearing "some similarities" to last week's packages containing potentially explosive devices was found in an editor's mailbox.

Investigators suspect he also sent the latest one and were conducting forensic tests to see if they could find a definitive link, another law enforcement official said. Aaronson said he did not know what made Sayoc seem emotional but noted he is facing decades in prison if convicted.
