The FBI is now investigating a second contaminated envelope sent to a mail processing facility in Washington, D.C. Its intended recipient appears to have been the president.

According to Fox News, the FBI released the contents of the letters.

The bulletin said both letters included the phrase: "To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance." 

Both were signed, "I am KC and I approve this message."
