27 October, 2018, 06:50
At a press conference, federal authorities confirmed the suspect in custody is Cesar Sayoc, Jr., 56, whose arrest in Aventura was announced mid-morning Friday by the Department of Justice.
Law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that the devices, containing timers and batteries, were not rigged like booby-trapped package bombs that would explode upon opening.
Geoffrey Berman, US attorney for Southern District of NY, called Sayoc's conduct "cowardly and reprehensible and totally anathema to our democracy".
Additional details, such as his name, were not immediately released.
News of the arrest emerged as investigators recovered the latest explosive devices, packages sent to Sen.
Law enforcement officials have not publicly verified that the accounts were Sayoc's.
Earlier Friday, authorities said suspicious packages addressed to New Jersey Sen.
The Clapper package, as with one sent on Wednesday to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, were marked care of CNN, a television network often critical of the administration and long provoking Trump's ire.
Numerous people meant to receive the packages have either personally criticized Trump or have been criticized by him in the past.
Sayoc was charged Friday with transporting explosives across state lines, illegally mailing explosives, threatening former presidents and others, threatening interstate communications and assaulting federal officials, according to charging documents.
Trump, in a tweet Thursday, blamed the "Mainstream Media" for the anger in society.
He said that anyone who had been a critic of President Trump needed to be on the alert and take extra precautions. He reprised the phrase "fake news" that he notably refrained from uttering on Wednesday at his previous rally in Wisconsin just hours after a mail bomb was delivered to CNN's studios in NY.
The return address on the packages listed the South Florida office of Rep.
Twelve suspicious packages containing what is believed to be potentially explosive devices were addressed to Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, CNN, Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, Cory Booker, Robert De Niro and more.
Two packages were sent to Waters and Biden.
Law enforcement authorities are treating the bombs as a domestic terror matter.
Several of the packages went through a USA postal facility in Opa-locka, which is less than 10 miles from Aventura, where the suspect resides.

Trump had told reporters as he left Washington that he had no plans to tone down his rhetoric, adding: "I could really tone it up".
Trump's supporters accused Democrats of unfairly suggesting the president was to blame for the bomb scare.
"I do want to just echo one thing that John Brennan said and that this is not going to silence the administration's critics", Clapper said. None of the suspected pipe bombs have detonated, and have all been taken to the FBI's lab in Quantico, Virginia for analysis. But they were uncertain whether the devices were poorly designed or never meant to cause physical harm.
