WASHINGTON (Covering Katy News) – House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) is speaking out against the man who is accused of sending bombs to the critics of President Donald Trump. McCaul represents a portion of Katy in the U.S. Congress.
“I strongly condemn the series of bombs meant to terrorize and intimidate political speech of prominent public figures,” McCaul said. “This deranged individual does not represent the values of the United States.”
Fifty-six year-old Cesar Sayoc was linked by a fingerprint and DNA to one of the explosive devices according to the FBI.
The FBI claims to have uncovered a latent fingerprint from one of the envelopes containing an improvised explosive device that had been sent to Maxine Waters.

“We have confirmed this fingerprint is that of Cesar Sayoc,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray.
The FBI says it is too early to know exactly what Savoc’s motive was, but it was revealed that his van’s windows are filled with pro-Trump material.
“While free speech is a right, we also have a moral responsibility to use that speech in a thoughtful and civil way, McCaul said. It is incumbent upon all Americans — regardless of political party — to raise the quality of our debates,” McCaul added.
