53 yr old Quebec woman faces charge of threatening Trump


Quebec resident Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier is scheduled to appear in a Buffalo, N.Y., court today to face a charge of making threats against the President of the United States, according to court papers.

Ferrier, 53, was arrested Sunday at the New York-Canada border and is accused of mailing a package containing ricin to the White House.

The package allegedly included a threatening letter in which she told President Donald Trump to ``give up and remove your application for this election.''

The envelope containing the toxic substance and the threatening letter was addressed to the White House but was intercepted at a mail sorting facility on Friday.

Ferrier is also believed to have sent six letters containing ricin received on Sept. 15 and Sept. 16 by police and corrections facilities in Texas, according to a sworn statement by FBI special agent Jonathan Preston.
