Authorities didn't reveal the exact contents of the manifesto, but said it had been sent to the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit.

Officials say they have also found a 161 page anti-government manifesto that Jakubowski sent to President Trump. He is described as being 5 feet, 10 inches tall with green eyes and brown hair.
