The Pentagon mailroom has been quarantined as suspicious mail addressed to members of the Trump cabinet have tested positive for the deadly poison ricin.
An envelope containing a white powdery substance was also received at the offices of Ted Cruz in Houston Texas. Two staffers are reported to have been taken to a hospital there.
Pentagon spokesman Col. Robert Manning:
“On Tuesday, October, 2, 2018, in coordination with the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, FBI Special Agents took possession of two suspicious envelopes that had been screened at the Pentagon mail facility. Those envelopes are currently undergoing further testing. As this is ongoing, we will have no further comment.”
