The New York Daily News reports:
A Florida man who had sent a letter to President Trump peddling toxic bleach as a fake coronavirus cure has been arrested by the commander-in-chief’s own Justice Department, an ironic turn of events that comes two months after the nation’s leader suggested the ludicrous method as a possible COVID-19 treatment.
Mark Grenon, the self-described archbishop of a fraudulent “non-religious church,” marketed the potentially lethal “Miracle Mineral Solution” as a groundbreaking coronavirus cure and directed his customers to ingest it by mouth, authorities said Wednesday.
Grenon, 62, and his three adult sons — Jonathan, 34, Jordan, 26, and Joseph, 32 — were charged with criminal contempt, conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiracy to violate the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
Trump’s public suggestion to inject disinfectants came days after Grenon reportedly sent him the letter.
