Ricin, a deadly poison was mailed to the offices of U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and the Navy’s top officer, Admiral John Richardson on Monday, according to a report.
“Initial tests were positive for ricin, a posion [sic] made from castor beans, but the FBI is now currently doing analysis to make final determinations,” a Pentagon spokesman said according to the report. “The packages never made their way into the Pentagon, but were flagged in a mail delivery building next door.”
“On Monday, the Pentagon Force Protection Agency detected a suspicious substance during mail screening at the Pentagon’s remote screening facility,” Col. Rob Manning said. “The envelopes were taken by the FBI this morning for further analysis. All USPS mail received at the Pentagon mail screening facility yesterday is currently under quarantine and poses no threat to Pentagon personnel.”
According to another report, two people who work in the campaign office of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) were exposed to a white powdery substance and are currently undergoing tests at a local hospital in Houston.
“A hazardous materials response team was dispatched to Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign office in Houston on Tuesday morning to investigate a mailed envelope that contained a white powdery substance,” the report said. “Multiple fire trucks and at least one hazmat truck were spotted on the scene after the letter was opened by campaign staff and reported to authorities.”
Authorities have not determined whether the substance sent to Cruz’s office was toxic.
SICK: Keith Olbermann Calls for President Trump to Receive “Death Penalty”
Former MSNBC commentator turned deranged liberal fanatic Keith Olbermann called for the killing of President Donald Trump in the latest of his YouTube rants on Tuesday, stating that the President should receive the death penalty for every “charge” of Americans who have died of coronavirus.
This would add up to 200,000 unique death penalties.
Olbermann made the demand in a charged rant- his exclusive mode of communication in recent years- in which he exclusively blamed the President for the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Twitter has previously said that it would ban or suspend those that call for the President’s death in the context of his coronavirus diagnosis. Olbermann is taking it a step further- actively calling for his execution- but as of Tuesday night, his verified Twitter account appears wholly funcitonal and unimpeded.
As Olbermann specifically blames President Trump for the impact of the global disease, he seems to be ignoring the reality that daily coronavirus deaths in Europe are now rising above those in the United States, and that it’s more than likely the “progressive” European Union will incur more coronavirus deaths per capita than the US has.

The President, or any political leader, is not God, and the ultimate effects of a novel viral disease are determined by variables largely outside of human control. Olbermann has descended into the hysteria of the bizarre “believe science” liberal religion, while largely ignoring the scientific reality on the capabilities of world leaders to simply “turn off” the coronavirus disease.
It’s generally poor form to speculate on the mental faculties of public figures- including partisan political personalities- but this kind of vengeful sentiment may indicate a personality disorder on the one that expresses it.
There’s no word as to a potential Secret Service investigation into the hysterical MSNBC alumni as of yet.
