According to the official DOJ complaint against Cesar Altieri Sayoc, all thirteen "mail bombs" were sent to their targets via the U.S. postal service... in spite of the fact that not one of them was postmarked. All were sent via the mail and all included the same kind of digital alarm clock which is completely useless for a mail bomb in that there is no way to guess when your target would be opening the package. Couldn't even guess what day they would arrive at the destination.
There is no detonator mentioned.
Later in the document, bombs sent to certain people are mentioned specifically and their method of delivery is detailed.
We also know from the U.S. postal services own website that they should all have been postmarked during the processing when they were taken into the system right there in Opa-Locka.

A postmark is an official Postal Service™ imprint applied in black ink on the address side of a stamped mailpiece. A postmark indicates the location and date the Postal Service accepted custody of a mailpiece, and it cancels affixed postage. Since 1979, the Postal Service’s Postal Operations Manual (POM) has provided standards for postmarks applied to single-piece First-Class Mail®. Letters and flats that need to be postmarked come from carrier pick-up, collection boxes, retail counters, or lobby drop boxes. Postmarks are not required for mailings bearing a permit, meter, or precanceled stamp for postage, nor to pieces with an indicia applied by various postage evidencing systems.
A “local” postmark shows the full name of the Post Office, a two-letter state abbreviation, ZIP Code™, and date of mailing. Because the Postal Service is sensitive to the importance some customers place upon these postmarks, each Post Office is required to make a local postmark available. Lobby drops should be designated for this purpose with clear signage signifying its use
- Automated: Advanced facer canceller systems used by processing distribution centers cancel letters quickly. These machines are equipped with biohazard detection systems so letters postmarked by automation benefit from added safety measures.
- Mechanized: A variety of older devices apply postmarks to flat-size mailpieces and to philatelic pieces.
- Manual: Hand-stamp devices are used by Postal Service employees for local cancellation or philatelic requests.
Cannot find the one sent to Maxine Waters but the one sent to Obama is pictured in the middle of this combination of images of other packages.
As you can see, none of them were postmarked. All of these highly suspect packages found in a bin by postal workers with obvious spelling errors and addressed to political figures were supposedly sent along the postal service and even delivered across the country... and never a single postmark was stamped on them.
And not one was flagged as being suspicious in spite of the fact that the handlers could clearly feel a pipe-bomb shape inside the tan envelopes.
That is impossible and if it's impossible, it's not true.
And that is from the official DOJ complaint.
