  • Mail Bomber Suspect's Mom Calls On Trump To Tone Down Anti-Media, Anti-Democrat Rhetoric

Sayoc, 56, is set to be extradited from his home state of Florida to NY where he is scheduled to appear before Manhattan U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Lehrburger for allegedly sending 15 packages containing homemade pipe bomb devices to prominent Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump.

Sayoc faces a maximum 48 years in prison if convicted on the five counts he now faces, including for mailing explosives and threatening the Clintons.

Sayoc has been accused of sending improvised explosive devices to numerous Democrats, Trump critics and media outlets in a scare that heightened tensions before the crucial midterm elections Tuesday.

Prosecutors are expected to ask the judge to hold Sayoc without bail, saying he's a danger to the public.

At one point during the hearing, which lasted less than 10 minutes, Sayoc told U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Lehrburger that he understood his rights "100 percent".

Authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc, a staunch Trump supporter, in Plantation, Florida, on October 26 in connection with the series of mail bombs ― none of which detonated.

He was arrested a week ago outside a South Florida auto parts store in a van in which he had been living, a vehicle covered with stickers of Trump and showing images of some of the president's opponents with red crosshairs over their faces.


Packages were sent to Barack and Michelle Obama's Washington, DC, home and to Hillary Clinton at her upstate NY home in Chappaqua that the former secretary of state and presidential candidate shares with her husband, former president Bill Clinton.

"Yet another suspicious package, addressed to CNN's Atlanta office, was intercepted. three days after Sayoc's arrest".

All of the bombs were sent through the U.S. postal service but none exploded and no one was injured.

Sayoc's lawyers have found it in his best interest to have the hearing in NY instead of staying in Miami.

Prosecutors say the most recent crude bomb was recovered last Friday in California, addressed to liberal activist Tom Steyer.

"My son has been ill for a long time and my family and I have tried, over and over again, without success to urge him to get the help he needs", she wrote.
