Cesar Sayoc was arrested in Florida on Friday and charged with five federal crimes in connection with the mailing of pipe bombs. The announcement of the 56-year-old’s arrest came shortly after two new suspicious packages — one addressed to Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and another to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper — were intercepted by authorities in Florida and New York City. Two others sent to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Democratic donor Tom Steyer were later discovered in California. For a recap of the days events, see the live blog below.
