Meet The Man Who Sent White Powder To Donald Trump Jr. That Landed His Wife In Hospital
The Massachusetts child-care worker charged Thursday with sending the threatening letter filled with white powder to Donald Trump Jr. that sent his wife to the hospital, is a far-left gun control advocate who has supported numerous anti-Trump political movements.
24-year-old Daniel Frisiello was arrested after what prosecutors called “a textbook federal investigation” that traced the unsigned letters to him after he also ordered a “glitter bomb” for one of the recipients, in his own name.
The letter to Trump Jr. was opened by his wife, Vanessa, at their Manhattan apartment, and she was sent to the hospital as a precaution.
“You are an awful, awful person. I am surprised that your father lets you speak on TV.”
“You the family idiot. Eric looks smart. This is the reason why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve. So shut the f*** up.”
Investigators said that while the letters had no identifying information beyond a Boston postmark, Frisiello left a trail that led right to him.
They discovered that Dauber, the law professor, had also received what’s known as a “glitter bomb” that contained the same message as the letter with the white powder. The glitter letter indicated it came from the website www.shipyourenemiesglitter.com, and the company owner confirmed Frisiello had ordered it, according to court documents.
The owner said Frisiello attempted to send another 10 glitter bombs, including some to members of President Trump’s family but he declined to process the order because the messages appeared threatening or inappropriate.
Frisiello’s Facebook page contained posts about the recipients of the letters, authorities said. The account cited in court papers was still active on Thursday; in the most recent post, Frisiello criticized Prince Harry’s fiancee, Meghan Markle, for endorsing the #timesup movement.
A scan of Frisiello’s Facebook page also confirms him to be a gun control advocate who has endorsed and supported numerous anti-Trump political causes and campaigns.
Numerous posts over the last two weeks by Frisiello expressed support for the Parkland students who have been given platforms by the mainstream media to advocate for Second Amendment restrictions.
Frisiello’s “likes” include numerous anti-Trump campaigns as well as pages such as “CNN Heroes,” MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and COngressman Adam Schiff.
