Live Blog

Here is your live blog for the day.

Someone on Twitter said he saw the suspect's van back in April and took pictures because he thought it was so weird.

 

First look at the suspect in custody:

ABC affiliate Local 10 has details about  Cesar Sayoc's arrest:

Several law enforcement officials from various agencies, including the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, gathered in the parking lot of an Auto Zone in Plantation earlier in the day, where investigators were focused on a white van with pro-Trump political stickers covering the windows.

A man who operates a property management office near the Auto Zone store says Sayoc didn't resist when armed police officers swarmed and arrested him.

Thomas Fiori is a former federal law enforcement officer. He says he saw an undercover police officer in a nearby SUV looking at the store with binoculars Friday.

Fiori says within minutes he heard a small explosion, probably a device police use to distract people. He says 50 officers swarmed the van with their firearms drawn.

Fiori says the Sayoc did not resist and "had that look of, `I'm done, I surrender."'

Authorities could be seen covering the van, believed to belong to Sayoc, with a blue tarp. The van was then placed the back of a flatbed truck and driven to the FBI's South Florida headquarters in Miramar

Meanwhile, in Michigan:

Pero is chief of staff of the Michigan GOP.

 

Our classy first lady:

Please don't read the comments in the thread unless you want a head ache. Yes, shockingly, her tweet is full of Dems bullying Mrs. Trump.

U.S. Attorney Southern District NY Geoffrey Berman says the suspect is facing 58 years in prison for his crimes.

Wray: "We're still trying to determine if the devices were functional... They did contain energetic material, which, if subjected to the right combination of heat or shock or friction could be dangerous to the public. "

Both Wray and Sessions refused to comment on the possible motivation of the suspect.

Wray told reporters that he received a "very nice congratulatory call from the president."
