FBI Director Christopher A. Wray said that the bureau was still trying to determine if Sayoc's bombs were "functional" but noted that they contained "energetic material" that could be unsafe.

The aspiring bodybuilder and avid Trump supporter is accused of sending 14 explosive devices through the mail.

Florida fan of Donald Trump was arrested and charged Friday with mailing 13 bombs to opponents of the U.S. president in a brazen, weeklong spree that inflamed the country ahead of key elections.

At least a dozen bombs were mailed to prominent Democrats last week, including former President and first lady Barack and Michelle Obama, 2016 presidential nominee Sen.

Among the others Sayoc is alleged to have sent explosives devices were businessman and philanthropist George Soros, Joe Biden, Maxine Waters and former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan.

Each additional delivery created more unease. "They've got to stop, bring people together".

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said they have strong evidence linking Sayoc to some of the packages.

Son of murdered journalist Khashoggi leaves Saudi Arabia for US
The European Parliament passed a nonbinding resolution Thursday urging an EU-wide arms embargo on Saudi Arabia in response. The report said King Salman and Prince Mohammed offered their condolences to the family of the Saudi journalist .

As the packages rolled in, technicians hit a breakthrough: a fingerprint and DNA left on a package sent to Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat and one of the intended pipe bomb recipients, and DNA on a piece of pipe bomb intended for Obama.

"We must never allow political violence to take root in America", Trump told the Young Black Leadership Summit at the White House.

Besides that, his social media posts trafficked in online conspiracy theories, anti-Semitism and white supremacy. Booker was discovered at a mail sorting facility in Opa Locka, Florida, where authorities believe the suspected packages were shipped. Autographed photos of scantily clad and nude adult entertainers were plastered across the walls like wallpaper.

"My feeling was, after one month in office, we didn't need to hear anything more from Trump's mouth - we already knew everything we needed to know about him", Moore wrote Sunday in a Facebook post accompanying the clip. Several windows of the vehicle were covered with stickers saying support Trump or with cross-hairs over the faces of Trump opponents.

The official said that during an interview with agents, Sayoc denied playing any role in the bombing campaign.

At a rally on October 27, the president characterized the coverage of the mail bombings as the media's attempt to score "political points" against him and the Republican party ahead of the midterm elections. Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray declined to talk about the potential political motivations but Sessions did say this: "He may have been a partisan. appears to be partisan, but that will be determined as the case goes forward".

AG Sessions confirmed Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida was arrested in South Florida and is being questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Fiori said the arrested man did not resist and "had that look of, 'I'm done, I surrender"'.
