Democratic attorney Michael Avenatti said Tuesday that federal law enforcement told him he was among the public figures who an accused mail-bomber intended to harm before he was caught last week.

'I was informed this afternoon by the FBI that I was targeted by Cesar Sayoc,' Avenatti tweeted, without reveaking any details. 'I applaud the hard working men and women of the FBI for his arrest and their continuing investigation.'

Democrats - President - Fiery - Rhetoric - Bomber
