Authorities Say They Have A Suspect in Ricin Attack on Pentagon and Trump

Authorities say they have a suspect in the case of two envelopes of Ricin being sent to the Pentagon and another one sent to President Trump. They say he is a former Navy man and they were able to find him because of the return address. That was very convenient of him to put a return address on the attempted murder weapons.

They have so far refused to release the man’s name, possibly waiting until they get a confession or proof positive of his guilt. The package that was addressed to President Trump never made it to the White House. All letters and packages are screened before being sent on to the White House.

From The Blaze

Officials said that a tip from the White House led the Pentagon to discover the packages, which initially tested positive for ricin.

The U.S. Secret Service said that it also received a “suspicious envelope,” which was addressed to Trump, but that the package never made it to the White House. The Secret Service did not provide further comment, and instead noted that it was “working jointly with our law enforcement partners to fully investigate this matter.”

CNN reported that officials believed the packages at the Pentagon and the package intended for Trump appeared to be connected.

A spokesperson for the Secret Service told CNN that it can “confirm receipt of a suspicious envelope addressed to the president on Oct. 1, 2018.”

The packages never made their way into the Pentagon. Officials discovered the questionable packages during mail screening at a building next door Monday and turned the packages over to the FBI for forensic analysis.

I blame this attack, like all attacks, on the Democrats who have made Antifa and MS-13 their heroes.
