56-year-old Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier learned her fate after attempting to assassinate President Donald Trump. She was sentenced to 262 months, which is nearly 22 years, in Washington, D.C.
Ferrier, who isn’t American, is a dual citizen of Canada and France. The crazed leftist sent a letter to the White House laced with the deadly poison ricin. The letter referred to Trump as “The Ugly Tyrant Clown.”
The letter read, “If it doesn’t work, I’ll find better recipe for another poison, or I might use my gun when I’ll be able to come. Enjoy! FREE REBEL SPIRIT.” (Poll: Will You Vote For Trump or Biden? VOTE)
Ferrier attempted to drive across the U.S.-Canada border at the Peace Bridge Border Crossing in Buffalo, New York, while carrying a gun, a knife and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
Ferrier told the judge that she considers herself a “peaceful and genuinely kind person” as well as an “activist” who gets angry about unfairness and abuse of power.
The deadly letter was flagged at a mail sorting facility in September 2020. It never reached the White House. Mail interception is a standard procedure for the White House.
Exposure to ricin can be deadly within 36 to 72 hours. It causes massive bleeding from the stomach and intestines while eventually the liver, kidneys and spleen stop working. Death occurs from multiple organ failure. (Trending: Ex-Capitol Police Chief Drops Bombshell About Jan 6)
Ferrier had no previous criminal record prior and had earned a master’s degree in engineering. She also raised two children.
While in jail, investigators discovered eight more letters addressed to law enforcement officials in Texas where she was being held.
Ferrier wrote on social media that someone should “please shoot [T]rump in the face” in September 2020.
U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich fired back, “That isn’t really activism. I hope you have no desire to continue on this path.”
Prosecutor Michael Friedman agreed with the harsh sentence. “There is absolutely no place for politically motivated violence in the United States of America,” he said. “There is no excuse for threatening public officials or targeting our public servants.”
If Ferrier is ever released, she will be required to be under supervised release for life.
