Pipe-bomb suspect had hit list of targets

Mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc is due in court this afternoon

According to CBS News, the package that was intercepted in Atlanta was similar to 14 others that were sent to high-profile newsmakers and CNN's NY bureau since October 23.

A new suspicious package has been sent to CNN.

Last week, one of the 13 pipe bombs that were sent to various Democratic public figures ended up at the CNN offices in NY.

The latest suspicious package comes just hours before a federal court hearing was to begin in Miami for 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, whom authorities accuse of sending explosive material to Democrats and other prominent critics of President Donald Trump. None of the devices exploded.

In this courtroom sketch, Cesar Sayoc, second from right, appears in federal court, Monday, Oct. 29, 2018, in Miami.

The official said authorities had recovered soldering equipment, a printer, and stamps similar to those used on the package bombs in the investigation into Sayoc, who was arrested last week in Florida. 'All mail, at all CNN domestic bureaus, is being screened at off-site facilities'.

Brazil election result: Jair Bolsonaro wins presidential race against rival Fernando Haddad
People set off fireworks on Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach, and vehicle drivers honked their horns across the city Sunday. The Workers' Party founder, known simply as Lula, is serving a 12-year sentence for corruption.

Shackled and handcuffed to a chain around his waist, Sayoc appeared hoarse when he spoke his name out loud in response to US Magistrate Judge Edwin Torres' questions. The FBI and Atlanta police were called to a post office some 1.2 miles from CNN headquarters around 9:30am.

Addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, it was found in the mail room of CNN's New York Bureau.

Investigators say Sayoc's van, covered in pro-Trump stickers, was his home and bomb lab. Authorities say none of the devices had a trigger mechanism and Sayoc said he never meant to harm anyone.

The packages were intercepted from DE to California. He is expected to be moved to NY, where prosecutors will seek to hold him without bail as a flight risk.

Suspicious packages matching these three were also sent to former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, billionaire and liberal donor George Soros, billionaire and liberal donor Tom Steyer, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Sen. The main issue will be whether he waives extradition to NY and whether he seeks release on bail.

The packages contained explosive devices, but none of them detonated and no one was injured.
