Mere days ago, President Donald Trump was calling for a new "tone and civility" in politics after the arrest of a man accused of mailing pipe bombs to several top Democratic leaders.

Sayoc is facing five federal charges in connection with the week-long mail bomb plot.

Steyer, who has repeatedly called for Trump's impeachment, hit back at the president on Twitter.

On the day the first package arrived at the estate of George Soros, the billionaire activist, Sayoc, then unknown to law enforcement, retweeted a post saying, "The world is waking up to the horrors of George Soros".

And he was probably unaware that investigators scouring his social media accounts had found the same spelling mistakes on his online posts - "Hilary" Clinton, Debbie Wasserman "Shultz" - as on the mailings he'd soon be charged with sending.

The 56-year-old is due to go before a federal judge in Miami, Florida, not far from where federal agents arrested him on Friday near the van where authorities say Sayoc was living.

United States justice department officials said the bombs were "not hoax devices" and warned there could be more still undiscovered.

The affidavit said a tactical team found Bowers on the third floor of the synagogue, where he shot two other officers. It was the deadliest attack on Jews in USA history, according to the leader of the Anti-Defamation League.

The envelopes, addressed to Democrats such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and intercepted from DE to California, held vital evidence investigators said they used to arrest Sayoc on Friday outside of Miami.

Hours before his arrest, Sayoc was playing music sets at a Florida strip club where he had worked for two months.

A source with knowledge of Facebook's efforts said the teams were not relying exclusively on other users to report the content; in this case taking proactive measures instead to remove any posts or pages commending or celebrating the pipe bomber. The company is working with law enforcement on the investigation. A bomb was also discovered Wednesday in the CNN mailroom addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan.

As the Federal Bureau of Investigation worked around the clock, and as Americans were busy debating the hard-edged political climate and whether Trump had fanned the flames with his rhetoric, it was business as usual for Sayoc as he took to Twitter to denigrate targets like Soros.

A registered Republican, Sayoc's political views were evident on social media, railing against Democrats, Muslims and liberals in Facebook and Twitter posts. "I think if you look across the political scene, what you seen is routine, systematic lawlessness ― an attempt to break. democratic norms in pursuit of victory at all costs".

Steyer denounced Trump in a tweet later Sunday afternoon in which he said the president had "just tweeted at me in his typical insulting style". Across the street, Thomas Fiori, a former federal law enforcement officer, said he saw about 50 armed officers swarm a man standing outside a white van with windows plastered with stickers supporting Trump and criticizing media outlets including CNN.

"In terms of interpreting what he said, that seems, to me, like a straight-up anti-Semitic move", he said.
