Woman Gets 21 Years for Poison Attempt on Trump – Watch

A Canadian woman was sentenced to 21 years in prison on Wednesday for attempting to poison President Donald Trump.

Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier is a dual citizen of Canada and France. She was sentenced to 262 months in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release after pleading guilty earlier this year to prohibitions concerning biological weapons in two separate criminal cases in Washington, D.C., and the Southern District of Texas, according to the Department of Justice.

“Ferrier admitted that she made ricin at her residence in Quebec, Canada, in September 2020. Ricin is a deadly poison made from castor beans,” court documents stated. “Ferrier placed the ricin toxin in envelopes containing letters she wrote to then-President Trump at the White House and to eight Texas State law enforcement officials.”

Ferrier, 55, appeared at the hearing on Thursday wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and addressed the court, where she reportedly described herself as a “peaceful person.”

“I consider myself to be an activist, not a terrorist,” she said, according to CNN. “Activists are constructive; terrorists are destructive.”

“The only regret I have is that it didn’t work and that I couldn’t stop Trump,” Ferrier added.

In September 2020, she posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, for someone to “please shoot [T]rump in the face.”

“The letters in the envelopes contained threatening language, and the letter addressed to then-President Trump instructed him to ‘[g]ive up and remove [his] application for this election,’” the DOJ said in a news release. “Ferrier mailed each of the threatening ricin letters from Canada to the United States.”

In her letter to Trump, CNN reported that Ferrier wrote, “You ruin USA and lead them to disaster. I have U.S. cousins, then I don’t want the next 4 years with you as President. Give up and remove your application for this election!”
