Woman Arrested For Trying To KILL Barack Obama [VIDEO]

I remember when this happened in October of 2016. Authorities have now charged Julia Poff with sending homemade bombs to President Barack Obama and Texas Governor Greg Abbott that prosecutors say could have maimed or killed the two leaders. The woman is from Sealy, Texas. Her undoing was cat hair, if you can believe it. Documents were filed in district court in Houston last week that show she was indicted earlier this month on six counts for allegedly mailing the bombs in October 2016, including mailing injurious articles and transporting explosives with the intent to kill and injure.

Governor Abbott, who is in a wheelchair, opened his package, but thankfully, the device did not explode according to the indictment. It did not detonate because “he did not open it as designed,” court documents said. If it had gone off, it could have caused “severe burns and death,” the indictment says. The package mailed to Obama, was intercepted in screening, so he was never at real risk here. That does not negate intent though.

The destroyed shipping label on the package that was sent to Governor Abbot led investigators to Poff’s residence in Sealy. A cat hair found under the shipping label of the package sent to Obama matched one of Poff’s cats, the indictment says. Inside the package was a cellphone, a cigarette package and a Ken’s salad dressing cap which were also linked to Poff. Witnesses state that she had bought the salad dressing for an anniversary dinner. The cigarette box used in the device sent to Abbott bore a Texas tobacco stamp that identifies the store where the cigarettes were bought. The two incendiary powders in the box matched materials found in Poff’s home, federal court documents showed.

Poff allegedly said she didn’t like Obama and was upset with Gov. Abbott because “she had not received support from her ex-husband,” the indictment stated. Poff is also accused of mailing an explosive device to the Social Security Administration in Maryland and allegedly said she had applied for social security benefits, but didn’t receive them. This woman is mentally unstable and violent. I doubt she will be found competent, but either way, she’s going away forever.

Poff is 46 years-old and is now being detained at the Houston federal detention center. Her attorney is Ashley Kaper, who declined to speak with an Associated Press reporter Friday. A criminal background check shows Poff has a misdemeanor conviction for theft. She was also convicted for state felony fraud. In both cases, she was given probation. Clearly, this is a woman with mental issues. I’m just relieved that her attempts at murder failed and she will no longer be a threat out there.
