Canadian Woman Who Sent Ricin Letter to Trump Sentenced to 22 Years in Prison

The Canadian woman who sent a letter containing ricin to the Trump White House and 8 Texas officials in September 2020, was sentenced to 21.8 years in prison.

Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier, a dual citizen of Canada and France, referred to Trump as an “ugly tyrant clown” in the letter which contained ricin.

“You ruin USA and lead them to disaster. I have US cousins, then I don’t want the next 4 years with you as President,” she wrote.

Ferrier was arrested at the US-Canada border crossing in Buffalo, New York in September 2020 after admitting to agents she was wanted by the FBI for sending Trump the poison letter.

“The ricin I made didn’t have a harmful concentration. It was just a strong warning. I did not target innocent people. It was never my attention to harm innocent people, and in fact I did not harm anyone,” Ferrier said, according to NBC News. She added that her “only regret” is that Trump didn’t heed her warning “and I couldn’t stop Trump before he put in action his plans to try to stay in power.”

NBC News reported:

A Canadian national who sent a letter laced with the deadly toxin ricin to former President Donald Trump at the White House was sentenced Thursday to over 21 years in prison.

Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier, 56, a dual citizen of Canada and France, pleaded guilty in January to sending the homemade poison-laced letters to Trump and eight Texas law enforcement officials from her home in Quebec in September of 2020.

“The hand-written letters mailed from Canada with the ricin toxin each referred to a ‘special gift’ for the recipient, which was described as being ‘in this letter.’ Each letter stated that if the special gift doesn’t ‘work,’ then the defendant would ‘find a better recipe for another poison,’” prosecutors said in their pre-sentencing report.

The letter to Trump referred to him as an “ugly tyrant clown,” and urged him to drop out of the 2020 election.
