SENT LETTERS CONTAINING RICIN TO THE THEN PRESIDENT AND OTHER OFFICIALS
A woman (55), who happens to be a dual citizen of Canada and France, was sentenced on August 17, 2023, to 262 months in prison, together with a “lifetime of supervised release,” for sending letters which contained a toxin known as “ricin,” to then-President Donald J. Trump, and to eight Texas State law enforcement officials.
The woman admitted that she made the “biological weapon” at her home in Quebec, Canada, and then placed the poison in envelopes and sent them via international mail to Trump at the White House and to the other intended victims in Texas. She is also said to have thereafter attempted to enter into the U.S. via the "Peace Bridge" (up in Buffalo) and was detained by Border Patrol officials after she was found in possession of “a loaded firearm, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and other weapons.”
Now how toxic was that?
