FBI: Over 100 Trump Critics Targeted by 'Pipe Bomber'

Another suspected bomb was intercepted en route to the CNN facility in Atlanta, Georgia, Monday, police authorities say.

.S. Federal agents are notifying the over 100 potential targets listed by the pipe-bomber who sent bombs to two former presidents and a number of critics of Donald Trump last week, WNBC reported Monday.

Another suspected bomb was intercepted en route to the CNN facility in Atlanta, Georgia, Monday, authorities say, adding that there may be more roaming the postal system. Although this newest package resembles the two others sent to CNN, FBI officials cannot confirm if it is connected.

Cesar Sayoc, a part-time pizza delivery man, former male stripper and avid Donald Trump supporter, arrived in court on five charges of federal crimes. Fourteen bombs sent to former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, the CNN New York office, and billionaire Democratic donor George Soros last week.

Despite DNA evidence and fingerprints linking Sayoc to the assassination attempts, defense attorney Jamie Benjamin maintains the Florida man’s innocence, due to lack of proof.

Police officials say the alleged attacker conducted an online research into a number of journalists, entertainment personalities, and political figures critical of Trump and composed a list of over 100 potential targets, NBC News said.

Sayoc has been charged with interstate transportation and illegal mailing of explosives, threatening a former president, making threatening interstate communications, assaulting federal officers, and consequently denied bale.

On Friday, President Trump dismissed the attempted bombing as retribution for poor media coverage of himself and the Republican Party. When asked if he would keep the Obama’s and the other victims informed on any case developments, he replied only if forced.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Those who already received pipe bombs were on the kill list of Michael Scheuer, a frequent guest on John Fredericks Radio Network (JFR). JFR has also had Trump, members of Trump's family, members of the Trump admin, and other Trump toadies as guests. Trump has financially supported JFR and given it broadcasting perks.
