MAGAbomber Caught!

NOTE: I'm changing the subject line of this thread because the news is so welcome and comes as such a relief to the fear generated by this violent Trump doodyhead.

BREAKING:
Per CNN -- A package containing a pipe bomb was just found at George Soros' New York home. The FBI is taking over the investigation because the motive is, they deem, political.

Pkgs w/bomb components found near Clinton home, and at Obama and CNN ofcs

Hmm, someone's been busy in upstate NY --

Suspicious packages sent to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, CNN's New York City office
By Minyvonne Burke, Jonathan Dienst and Tom Winter
NBCNews.com
Oct. 24, 2018

A SERIES OF SUSPICIOUS packages that appear to be working explosives were sent to Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and CNN's New York newsroom in the last day, officials said. The first package intercepted was addressed to the former presidential candidate and discovered on Tuesday near the Clintons' home in Chappaqua, New York, a suburb of New York City. A second was addressed to Obama and intercepted in Washington, D.C., the FBI and Secret Service said in a statement.

"The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such. Both packages were intercepted prior to being delivered to their intended location. The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them," the statement said. "The Secret Service has initiated a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.”

The New York bureau of the FBI tweeted that they are aware of the situation and are working with other law enforcement agencies to investigate.

On Wednesday morning, CNN's New York City newsroom was evacuated and the NYPD's bomb squad was called following reports of an explosive device.

A senior White House official told NBC News that President Trump has been briefed on the situation and they are taking it "extremely seriously."

“We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures," added White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. "These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards.”

A spokesman for HIllary Clinton said Wednesday she is in Florida, and Bill Clinton was home in New York but said the package never made it to the couple's home.

This series comes as an explosive device was found in the mailbox of George Soros' home in Bedford, New York on Monday.

A senior law enforcement official said that the package to CNN is believed to be similar to the ones that were addressed to Clinton, Obama and Soros.

Law enforcement officials said that device in Soros' mailbox "had the components" of a bomb and contained explosive powder. It was detonated as a precaution, and no one was injured. Soros, a business investor and Holocaust survivor, was reportedly not at home at the time, and declined to comment on the incident.

No arrests have been made.

Now Rep. Debbie Schultz's ofc receives an explosive device

Postby Marie » Wed Oct 24, 2018 11:32 am

:roll: Naturally, all this activity is being roundly condemned by the WH --

US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz's office, building evacuated after bomb threat
10/24/2018

SUNRISE, Fla. - The office building site of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz's office in Sunrise has been evacuated after reports of a bomb threat. Packages addressed to the congresswoman contained the explosive devices. All city workers have been evacuated from the building at 777 Sawgrass Corporate Parkway.

The building also houses the Sunrise Administrative Center and sits close to the city's water plant.

It is not known whether Wasserman Schultz was in the office at the time of the evacuation. She is expected to appear today with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a campaign event in Coral Gables for Donna Shalala.

The threat comes on the day when explosive devices were delivered to the homes of former President Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. The New York City headquarters of CNN were also evacuated when a suspicious device was found in the company's mailroom.

https://www.local10.com/news/wasserman- ... omb-threat

UPDATE: Wassermann-Schultz received this package b/c it had been intended for Eric Holder but sent to an incorrect address -- and the return address on the package (as well as on all the aforementioned pkgs) -- was the office of Rep. Schultz. So it was sent there.

Some funny prank, eh?

And now it appears that Maxine Waters was also targeted. And somebody else got white powder. :x

I wish whoever is sending these parcels would realize that high profile people like former presidents and attorney generals have people SCREENING their mail and packages and are not likely to be simply handed a package to unwrap! So it's the little people, the mail inspectors and delivery employees who are most vulnerable to harm by pipe bombs and the like. And you make martyrs of ordinary people, you're going to really make the public angry!

At least it will comfort you to know that Pillhead Junkybaugh is singing off your same song sheet.

By the way, while we have you here, "Frank" -- what's your name in Russian?

So... what will be Trump's nickname for this guy? --

Suspected MAGA bomber is identified as ‘Native American Trump supporter’ Cesar Altieri Sayoc
By Jimmy McCloskey
metro.co.uk
Friday 26 Oct 2018

THE MAN ARRESTED on suspicion of being the MAGA bomber has been named as Native American Trump supporter Cesar Altieri Sayoc, 56.

Sayoc, of Fort Lauderdale was arrested in Plantation, a suburb of Miami, Florida, Friday on suspicion of sending 12 pipe bombs to top Democrats and high-profile figures critical of Donald Trump.

Online records show Sayoc, who has a criminal record, has owned companies called Native American Catering & Vending as well as Proud Native America One Low Price Drycleaning.

The bodybuilding terror suspect is also reported to have worked in a strip club.

Sayoc is said to have been traced by DNA and phone records and was flagged as a suspect after making previous terror threats to judges. A lawyer who previously represented him claimed Sayoc asked if his age could be altered in court papers, and was obsessed with appearing younger.

Meanwhile, photos have emerged of a van linked to Sayoc covered in pro-Trump and anti-Hillary Clinton stickers. The van was seen being covered up by law enforcement officials after Sayoc was arrested. An older picture dug up by an eagle-eyed tweeter appears to show a picture of Hillary Clinton’s head sat in between a set of crosshairs. Another sticker reads ‘Dishonest media CNN sucks,’ with numerous other pro-Trump pictures, including one describing its driver as a Native American Trump supporter.

Other images on the van include a photoshopped image of Trump atop a tank while a bomb explodes in the background. Yet another sticker reads: ‘I am Donald Trump & I Approve This Message.’

Law enforcement officials were seen covering a white van close to the scene, which appears to be covered in photos of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, and is reported to have at least one sticker referring to Hillary Clinton. A CNN logo was also visible on the van’s side window. It was seen being loaded onto a police flatbed truck.

Meanwhile, at a speech Friday, Donald Trump said Sayoc’s alleged crimes were ‘despicable and have no place in our country.’ The president also hailed law enforcement agencies for their quick work in tracking Sayoc down.

Sayoc was arrested in the same district represented by Congresswoman Debbie Schultz, who received one pipe bomb and was marked as the sender on numerous others. Eyewitnesses reported hearing an explosion, which may have been a flash-bang device used by law enforcement to stun the man.

He is now reported to be en route to FBI offices in Miami for questioning.
