Cesar Sayoc Pleads Guilty To Mailing Pipe Bombs To Trump Critics

Sayoc appeared in a courtroom before a U.S. federal judge in Manhattan where he pleaded guilty, NBC News New York reported on Thursday evening.

Federal officials called the wave of potential explosive devices sent out in October 2018 a "domestic terror attack" and accused Sayoc of endangering numerous lives.

Cesar Sayoc, 57, who was arrested in Florida in October, pleaded guilty to 65 counts and could face life imprisonment at his sentencing in September. All were intercepted before reaching their intended targets, and none exploded.

Sayoc, who lived in a white truck plastered with pro-Trump and anti-Democrat stickers, was arrested in Florida five days after the first device was discovered in Soros's upstate NY mailbox.

Court records last week indicated that Sayoc was expected to plead guilty.

"In alphabetical order, SAYOC's intended victims were former Vice President Joseph Biden, Senator Cory Booker, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, CNN, Robert De Niro, Senator Kamala Harris, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former President Barack Obama, George Soros, Thomas Steyer, and Representative Maxine Waters. I'm extremely sorry", Sayoc said, as quoted by The Washington Post.

The former strip club DJ/bouncer was one of the first examples of how Donald Trump has been radicalizing far right extremists to the point where they turn to violence in an attempt to silence anyone who speaks ill of their golden calf of a idol. Prosecutors said Sayoc began searching for the homes of some people targeted as early as last July and continued into the fall.

Over several days, investigators tracked the packages to a mail center in Opa-locka.

This frame grab from video provided by WPLG-TV shows Federal Bureau of Investigation agents escorting Cesar Sayoc, in sleeveless shirt, in Miramar, Fla. Wray also said there were potential DNA matches connecting Sayoc to some of the devices.

"In October 2018, I made devices that were created to look like pipe bombs and sent them in the mail", Sayoc said in court. Authorities said all 16 were similar, describing them as "improvised explosive devices" containing pipe filled with explosive material, wiring and a small clock.

Authorities say the former stripper sent 14 mail bombs to former Secretary of State Clinton, De Niro and Soros, as well as to the CNN headquarters in NY.
