A woman with dual citizenship in Canada and France pleaded guilty Wednesday to attempting to assassinate former President Donald Trump with ricin.
ascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier, 55, admitted to mailing a letter containing white powder to the White House in September 2020.
The powder tested positive for ricin, and investigators learned she made the poison in her Quebec home. She sent eight other letters to Texas law enforcement officials, the Department of Justice said.
The letter to Trump ordered him to abandon his 2020 reelection effort.
Far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron have not apologized.
