Law enforcement intercepts package of ricin mailed to Trump: report
[NYPost]

The FBI and Secret Service are investigating a package containing the highly-toxic poison ricin that was mailed to President Trump last week, CNN is reporting.

The package was intercepted by law enforcement, the report said.

Two tests were done to confirm the presence of ricin in the package, law enforcement sources told the network.

It's likely the package never even reached the White House.

All mail for the White House is sorted and screened at an offsite facility, the network noted.

The package appears to have been sent from Canada, an official told the New York Times.

In 2018, a former sailor was arrested in Utah for allegedly sending envelopes containing the unprocessed source of ricin ‐ seeds from the castor plant ‐ to Trump at the White House and also to the Pentagon.

#2  Wonder why this Canadian idiot wanted to kill a secretary or clerk who works for the President?

Is he/she/it so STUPID as to think the Pres opens his own mail?
