On Friday, the attorney for the alleged bomber Cesar Sayoc’s family, Ron Lowy, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that Sayoc has a major identity issue.

Sayoc, 56, has been arrested in connection to sending 14 bombs to news organizations and Democrats.

“He suffered from identification issues. He needed people to be impressed with him. He had issues of insecurity. I then began to realize that he had what I considered a lesser IQ, substantial emotional problems. He was like a 14-year-old in an adult’s body.”

Lowy explained that the family wanted him to get medical help, but that he was a definite and refused help. He describes the family as being “destroyed.”

Lowy said that Sayoc looked up to President Donald Trump as a role model.

The hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Thursday appeared disappointed when legal analyst Andrew Napolitano gave them unfortunate news about the White House's latest objections to House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

Specifically, Napolitano addressed the letter sent to Congress by White House counsel Pat Cipollone, which claimed that the executive branch did not have to comply with any subpoenas of documents until the House formally voted to open an impeachment inquiry.
