Feds Arrest Florida Man in Connection With Bombs Sent to Democratic Officials: Report

Authorities have reportedly arrested a man in Florida, in connection with the series of explosive devices that have been sent to public figures.

The explosive devices, which began being found in the mail earlier this week, were all safely removed without incident, but it is unknown whether any more have been sent.

Among those targeted by the 12 explosive devices were liberal philanthropist George Soros, former Presidents and First Ladies Barack Obama and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), and actor Robert De Niro.

Everyone targeted by the bombs is either a Democratic official or a notable critic of President Donald Trump, and many have been targets of his criticism on social media.
