Lots of bumper stickers all over the older Dodge van.
They’re covering the van with a large tarp...
So no details, eh? Must not have been a Trump supporter.
press conference scheduled for 2:30 eastern
If its not a Trump supporter they need time to scrub their social media.
The guy will be covered in Trump merchandise for the media, but votes Dem...
Press conference 2:30 pm EDT at DOJ (local?)
Well all of the tech saavy out there better be on the ball when the name is announced because its going to be a race to see who can flush out real info on the guy.
I'd go 60-40 the other way. If he was on a political threat list, wouldn't it be more likely he was considered a right-winger, because under Obama, those are the only people that got on a threat list. The rest got government positions.
We will know soon enough. Maybe as soon as we can see the decals on his van, currently covered with a tarp.
We’ve got a winner. 56 year old white male that has been arrested several times for making terroristic threats. Don’t know about his political leanings, but definitely crazy (sent letters to judges, etc.,) Lucky that he didn’t have the experience to make the bombs work. He certainly had the craziness to do it. Crazed Democrat, driven crazy by Trump’s mind control techniques? (LOL at what the slant will be.)
any photos? of the van?
Latest info—56 year old white male, he has been arrested previously for terroristic threats, wrote letters to judges.
Send him to GitMo.
Orlando Sentinel says CNN broke the story. How in the hell do they get to break a story? They have someone on the inside?
It’s not like any of Trump’s people would be calling CNN first.
We will never know that this jackass was R or D. The truth will be covered up. America has become a real mess. No truth or law and order. By the way, nothing to stop the Caravan from entering the US.
How can a NON-EXPLOSIVE DEVICE that was designed to not explode be classified as a PIPE BOMB?
If they start talking about ‘mental health issues’ he’s a liberal... and the whole matter will be swept under the rug.
I saw lots of Trump stickers on the left side windows of the van: a presidential seal and a bunch of other pictures that look like Trump. And on the back, a few American flag stickers. It all looks a little too conveniently overtly conservative to me. That, or a lone wacko conservative... but, if that’s the case and it was actually someone with intent to get these lefties, why wouldn’t he detonate the bombs?
