Left-wing activist from Canada sentenced in Trump assassination plot
A left-wing extremist has been sentenced to prison for mailing letters laced with ricin to former President Donald Trump.
"French-Canadian leftist extremist Pascale Ferrier has been sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison, being found guilty on biological weapons charges for sending letters laced with ricin to former President Donald J. Trump," reports Breitbart.
Ferrier pled guilty to the charges against her and admitted to sending the ricin-laced letters to then-President Trump in September of 2020.
She mailed the letters from Canada.
Ferrier pled guilty to charges of biological weaponry and told a U.S. judge in Washington D.C. she needed "to move on now" and was sentenced to 21 years and 10 months in prison.
"I analyzed and weighed all possible options. These plea agreements are not the best but the least deleterious design by the criminal 'injustice' system," Ferrier said to the judge.

"Ferrier, who was born in France before moving to the French-speaking province of Quebec, was arrested at the U.S.-Canada border in September of 2020 after she had mailed the poison-laced letter, which also demanded that President Trump drop out of from his re-election bid," reports Breitbart.
"So I made a 'special gift' for you to make a decision. This gift is in this letter," Ferrier wrote and added, "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."
