涉嫌向总统大儿子寄白色粉末,一名男子被逮捕 Man Arrested for Allegedly Sending White Powder to Donald Trump, Jr.








A Massachusetts man who allegedly sent an envelope filled with white powder to Donald Trump, Jr. was arrested Thursday and charged with using the mail to threaten people.

Daniel Frisiello was ordered to remain behind bars at least until his next court appearance. His lawyer said he plans to plead not guilty.

Frisiello is accused of sending envelopes filled with white powder along with insulting notes to five people, including the president's oldest son, Donald Trump, Jr.

His wife, Vanessa, opened the envelope and was briefly hospitalized complaining of nausea and coughing.

The powder was harmless corn starch. But it was accompanied by a note implying it was dangerous and calling Trump, Jr. "an awful, awful person...you make the family idiot, Eric, look smart...so you are getting what you deserve."

Other envelopes were sent to Democratic Senator Deborah Stabenow; California Republican congressional candidate and actor Antonio Sabato, Jr; a U.S. Attorney from California; and a law professor. They also received threatening letters.

Frisiello's attorney said his client has been on medication his entire life and suffers from "issues" and "difficulties," but did not elaborate.
