Sessions: Suspect Charged With Mailing Suspicious Packages Faces Up to 58 Years in Prison
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Friday afternoon that the suspect arrested for allegedly sending suspicious packages around the country faces up to 58 years in prison.
“[The suspect] has been charged today with five federal crimes, including interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against former presidents and certain other persons, threatening interstate communications and assaulting current and former federal officers,” Sessions said at a press conference. “For these charges the defendant faces up to 58 years in prison. These charges may change or expand as the investigation proceeds.”
Authorities initiated an investigation earlier this week into who sent suspicious packages to prominent Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump, including billionaire liberal activist George Soros, actor Robert De Niro, Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.), and former CIA Director John Brennan. As the week went on, packages were also intercepted before they reached Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), former Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper, and Democratic donor Tom Steyer. The package addressed to Brennan was delivered to CNN’s office at the Time Warner Center in New York City, forcing the network to evacuate the building.
