The New York Daily News reports:
Unhinged Florida man Cesar Sayoc pleaded guilty Thursday in Manhattan Federal Court to sending bombs to President Trump’s political enemies through the mail. Sayoc, 56, started to cry and shake as he pleaded guilty to 65 counts, including use of a weapon of mass destruction and illegal mailing of explosives with intent to kill.
Sayoc mailed 16 improvised explosive devices to CNN, as well as prominent Democrats like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, ex-Vice President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama and others. He faces a max of life in prison.
The right-wing fanatic had been living in a van covered in stickers of Trump and images of the President’s enemies with crosshairs over their faces when he was arrested in October following a national manhunt.
A weepy Cesar Sayoc pleads guilty to 65 counts with a guidelines range of life imprisonment plus 120 months.
“Apparently because the government believes it has power over the hereafter,” Judge Rakoff quipped.
Sept. 12 sentencing date.
More to come.
