BREAKING: Trump, Mattis, Richardson Were Intended Targets Of Poison Filled Envelopes [Video]
Two envelopes suspected of containing ricin poison, one addressed to Defense Secretary James Mattis, were identified in the Pentagon’s Central Processing Center, according to a U.S. official.
Later on Monday, the Secret Service reported it had also intercepted a suspicious envelope addressed to President Donald Trump, though that envelope was not received, nor did it enter the White House.
The envelopes found at the Pentagon’s mail center were addressed to Mattis and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson, the official said. Those pieces of mail, flagged as part of the Pentagon’s normal processing procedures, are being examined to determine whether they test positive for the deadly poison, the FBI said in a statement, according to ABC News.
A source familiar with the ongoing joint federal investigation said that based on preliminary investigative activity, the White House and Pentagon letters were believed to be connected and the substance in question was a very crude castor bean concoction that authorities were not technically calling “ricin” until further testing.
Ricin is a highly toxic compound extracted from castor beans that have been used in terror plots. It can be used in powder, pellet, mist or acid form. If ingested, it causes nausea, vomiting and internal bleeding of the stomach and intestines, followed by failure of the liver, spleen, and kidneys, and death by collapse of the circulatory system.
Another person familiar with the investigation into the letters said there was messy handwriting on the envelopes. At least one of the letters contained an index card with writing, “Jack the missile bean” and “Stock powder.”
As Reported By The Right Scoop:
A piece of mail delivered to the Pentagon mail facility has initially tested positive for ricin, according to two US defense officials. The mail facility is in a separate building on the grounds of the Pentagon and the piece of mail which tested positive never entered the Pentagon building.
