Trump Supporter Sobs as He Describes
Mailing Bombs to Obama, Clinton and
Other Democrats

March 21, 2019

Speaking in a halting, raspy voice,
Cesar A. Sayoc Jr., sat in a Manhattan
federal courtroom on Thursday and
described how he painstakingly assembled
homemade pipe bombs that he sent to
prominent Democrats, including Hillary
Clinton, former President Barack Obama
and other critics of President Trump
last fall.

Each device, Mr. Sayoc said, consisted
of a plastic pipe with a digital alarm
clock and attached wires. He packed all
of them with a potentially deadly mix:
powder from fireworks, fertilizer, a
pool chemical and glass fragments.
Finally, he inserted into each package
a photograph of the intended recipient,
marked with a red X over the face.

Mr. Sayoc, 57, paused his explanation
and broke into sobs, finally collecting
himself and speaking softly just before
he pleaded guilty to the attack. “I know
these actions were wrong, and I’m
extremely sorry,” he said.

It was his first public explanation of the
bombing campaign that gripped the nation
just before the midterm elections in
October. Mr. Sayoc mailed 16 devices to
his intended victims around the country,
who also included the actor Robert De
Niro and CNN. After a four-day manhunt,
he was arrested in Florida, where he
appeared to be living in a white van
plastered with conservative slogans and
images.
