U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session says mail-bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc is being charged with five federal crimes, including the illegal mailing and interstate transportation of explosives and threatening a former president.
He called this week's series of bombs mailed to numerous opponents of President Donald Trump was "absolutely unacceptable."
Sessions cautioned that Sayoc had only been charged, not convicted. But he said, "Let this be a lesson to anyone regardless of their political beliefs that we will bring the full force of law against anyone who attempts to use threats, intimidation and outright violence to further an agenda. We will find you, we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law."
