Media try to 'score political points' amid bomb scare

Facebook Proactively Erased Pages Praising Mail Bombs Before Suspect's Arrest

A law enforcement official told NBC New York on Monday that a 15th suspected mail bomb, which was addressed to CNN, resembled other packages that were said to have been sent by 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc.

At a news conference in Washington, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that Sayoc had been charged with five federal crimes, including the interstate transportation of an explosive, the illegal mailing of explosives and making a threat against a former president and others.

Mr. Trump said he found the press obsession with Mr. Sayoc's political leanings untoward and compared it with coverage of the man who attacked Republicans at baseball practice past year, gravely wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana. The FBI says DNA evidence from at least two of the packages also points to him as the suspect.

Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and anti-Trump agitator Tom Steyer were also found. Oscar victor and outspoken Trump critic Robert De Niro also was targeted.

Similar packages addressed to Clinton and Obama were intercepted on their way to Clinton's NY home, where she lives with former President Bill Clinton, and to Washington, where Obama lives with his wife, Michelle Obama. "I just figured he was passionate about the upcoming elections". The article also omits that Trump is the first president to follow through on a promise to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, a move that drew praise from Jews all over the world.

Mr. Trump did praise the Federal Bureau of Investigation and police for their quick action in arresting Mr. Sayoc, who has been charged with sending the 13 pipe bombs detected this week en route to major Trump political opponents.

Zucker says all mail to CNN has been screened offsite since last week, when a series of package bombs began appearing around the country.

A 14th package was found on Friday at a post office outside San Francisco addressed to another wealthy contributor to the Democratic Party and liberal causes, Tom Steyer. Our footage of Mr. Sayoc would never make it into the final cut of what would be the film that is now in its last week in cinemas across America.

In the end, prosecutors who charged Sayoc said the fervent Trump supporter unwittingly left behind a wealth of clues about the mailed pipe-bombs.

The FBI chief said a fingerprint found on one of the packages led investigators to Sayoc.

The next morning, he was taken into custody near an auto parts store in Plantation, Fla., north of Miami. The one addressed to Steyer was intercepted in California, according to officials. One of those bombs was mailed to CNN offices in NY. Cory Booker another was sent to James Clapper, a former director of national intelligence; and a third was intercepted before it reached Sen. "Law enforcement will be visiting those people to notify them, the source said".
