‘I think we’ll probably pass’ on calling Obama, other pipe bomb targets

"Yet when a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to murder members of Congress. we did not use that heinous attempt at mass murder for political gain because that would have been wrong", Trump said, in an apparent reference to the shooting at a congressional baseball practice in Virginia past year.

Mail bombing suspect Cesar Sayoc will be in U.S. District Court in Miami on Monday for a hearing before the Brooklyn-born former stripper gets moved back to NY.

Cesar Sayoc, from Aventura, Florida, was arrested in Miami after 13 explosive devices were sent to the targets.

The man charged in the mail bomb plot has an extensive criminal history and is a fervent Trump supporter.

Federal agents are still searching for other possible suspects in South Florida who may have helped Cesar Sayoc, the former stripper and self-described entertainment promoter who was arrested at an auto parts store in Plantation Friday.

A suspicious package addressed to CNN's Atlanta headquarters was intercepted on Monday morning, the network said, five days after one of 14 pipe bombs sent to some of U.S. President Donald Trump's leading critics forced the evacuation of CNN's NY office. Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray said Sayoc was identified through a fingerprint found on one of the devices.

Multiple senior law enforcement sources told NBC News that Sayoc denies being behind the package bomb campaign.

NBC cancels Megyn Kelly’s morning show
Then on February 1, 2017, NBC made the abrupt announcement: Hall left the network the day before, on the day her contract was up. And Kelly has been openly challenging the news division's management, including NBC News chair Andy Lack , for months.

The van's windows were plastered with pro-Trump stickers, the slogan "CNN SUCKS" and images of Democratic leaders with red crosshairs over their faces.

Trump claimed on Friday he was being blamed for the mail bombs addressed to his critics, complaining in a tweet sent before dawn: "Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11 and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, 'it's just not Presidential!'"

Sayoc, who seemed to be living out of a van in Aventura, Florida, was taken into custody on a day when four more explosive packages were found, including two intended for USA senators, both Democrats.

Two weeks ago, Sayoc threatened a former Democratic congressional spokeswoman on Twitter after her appearance on Fox News. "Never once did he speak politics". The one addressed to Steyer was intercepted in California, according to officials.

"Uhh, if they wanted me to", Trump said when asked if he would call Obama or any of the other targets to update them on the investigation.

But hours later he launched his attack on the media, as well as on Mrs Clinton.

Earlier in the day the United States president complained on Twitter that this "bomb stuff" had slowed momentum for the Republicans ahead of the U.S. mid-term elections.
