Two envelopes addressed to Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson have initially tested positive for the deadly poison ricin at the Pentagon’s mail facility, according to a report.

The packages, which were delivered Monday, were intercepted before making it into the sprawling headquarters of the Defense Department in Virginia near Washington, DC, spokesman Chris Sherwood said Tuesday.

They triggered alarms as they underwent a security screening at the off-site mail processing center, according to the Military Times.

A defense official told CNN that the intended recipients were Mattis and Richardson.

“On Monday, the Pentagon Force Protection Agency detected a suspicious substance during mail screening at the Pentagon’s remote screening facility,” Army Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement.

i remember during the bush years they had the big "anthrax in the mail" scare and the only people harmed were postal workers and no culprit was every caught nor was anyone specific suspected, but the whole event was conveniently used to justify a whole slate of new government surveillance and seize laws. now we have another gop figurehead president who isn't really running the show and an all gop congress.
suspicious shades of the early bush junior years, tricks thats worked one time can be expected by an conservative estimate to work again under the same conditions.

Huh. Mueller was involved in that one. Never knew. Being the FBI director, he wasn't the lead on the investigation, but given the scope, importance, and public scrutiny involved, I'm sure he was sticking his nose in it early and often.

Already made an arrest.

>A 39-year-old U.S. Navy veteran has confessed to sending letters to U.S. President Donald Trump and other senior officials that were initially feared to contain the poison ricin when they were discovered this week, court documents showed.
