It appears more and more likely that Florida is the source of these devices.
Courtesy of CBS News:
A suspicious package addressed to Democratic Sen. Cory Booker has been recovered in Florida, the FBI said Friday morning. The FBI said the package was similar to 10 other packages sent to prominent Democrats and critics of President Trump.
In New York, police were responding to a scene of another suspicious package in midtown Manhattan. Sources told CBS News that package was addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
These two targets are also coincidentally on Trump’s enemies list.
It is getting harder and harder to entertain the idea that this person is not some homicidal Trumpster, who believes he is doing his idol’s bidding.
And what is the Donald doing to ratchet down the rhetoric?
Not a damn thing.
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 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, “it’s just not Presidential!”

Well, I guess CNN can expect to receive more mail bombs.
Update: There is now a suspect in custody.
Courtesy of New York Post:
A Florida man has been arrested in connection with the series of mail bombs sent this week, according to a report Friday.
The suspect is in federal custody for sending at least 12 suspicious packages containing what appears to be pipe bombs to high-level Democrats and critics of President Trump, CNN reported.
Hopefully, this means this whole thing is at an end and we will finally get some answers.
Update 2: Here is a picture of the suspect’s vehicle.

As you can see it is covered with pictures of Donald Trump.
So I guess we can stop tiptoeing around the obvious.
Update 3: The suspect’s name is Cesar Sayoc, a white male in his 50’s, and yes according to voter records he is indeed a Republican.
Well, I guess the Right Wing media has egg on their face yet again.
