Letter Sent To White House Confirmed To Contain Cyanide

Chemical testing revealed the results Tuesday evening.

With all the hateful rhetoric flying around, is it any wonder? At least the Secret Service caught it before a tragedy occurred. It looks like it came from a wingnut who has been doing wingnutty things for years, too.

The Intercept:

An envelope sent to the White House Mail Facility on Monday tested positive for cyanide, according to an internal law enforcement document obtained by The Intercept.

The envelope listed a return address for a man who the alert says has a record with the Secret Service dating back to 1995, which includes sending a package covered in urine and feces.

That person has sent multiple packages over the years, the most recent was received on June 12, 2012, which contained mini alcoholic beverages.

“An envelope containing an unknown milky substance, in a container wrapped in a plastic bag, received at the White House Mail Screening Facility, tested positive for Cyanide,” the alert states.

The mail was received at the screening facility on March 15. Initial biological testing done the following day was negative. However on Tuesday, the chemical testing returned positive for Cyanide.
