>> New charges brought against Cesar Sayoc on Friday, the Florida man accused of mailing bombs to prominent Democrats and critics of President Trump. In an indictment filled in Manhattan Federal Court, prosecutors charged Sayoc with 30 criminal counts including multiple counts of using weapons of mass destruction. If convicted, he now faces a sentence of life in prison.
The 56 year old former stripper and pizza delivery driver lived in a white van covered with right-wing political images supporting Trump and attacking his critics was arrested in late October following an intense manhunt. Public records show that Sayoc, a registered republican had been arrested numerous times over the years, including one case in which he was accused of threatening to bomb a power utility.
Friday's indictment accuses him of sending improvised explosive devices around the country. The recipients included President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the offices of CNN, Democratic mega donor George Soros, and actor Robert de Niro.>> Divisive racist misogynist ignorant plans
