n Wednesday, a dual citizen of Canada and France admitted to mailing threatening letters containing homemade ricin to then-President Donald Trump as well as eight Texas State law enforcement officials.
Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier, 55, sent these ricin-laced letters from Canada in September 2020, then drove to the Peace Bridge border crossing in Buffalo, New York where she reportedly informed a border agent that she was wanted by the FBI for the ricin letters.
At this time she was in possession of a loaded firearm, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a stun gun, pepper spray, two knives, and a truncheon.
According to a court filing written by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Friedman, Ferrier “was placed under arrest that same day.”
In 2019, Ferrier visited Texas and was detained there for about 10 weeks for unlicensed firearm possession, and authorities eventually departed her to Canada. The DOJ reported that she believed the law enforcement officials who she sent the poisoned letters to were responsible for her detention.
According to the DOJ, earlier in September, Ferrier tweeted that someone should “please shoot [T]rump in the face”.
