A Letter Containing Poison Was Sent To The White House

September 20, 2020

Officials from the White House have announced that they have intercepted a package containing the poison ricin that was addressed to President Donald Trump.

The FBI, postal service and Secret Service are currently investigating where the package came from. All the mail that makes its way to the White House is screened at an off site location before being delivered.

Ricin is a poison that is made from the husks of castor beans and has come up in known plans to try and take down the president and other White House officials.

There are no official suspects, but in 2018 there was a seven count indictment against a man in Utah who was plotting against Defense Secretary James Mattis,
FBI Director Christopher Wray and many others.
