The Manhattan district attorney investigating former President Donald Trump was mailed an envelope containing a suspicious “white powder,” a police spokesperson confirmed to Law&Crime.

The New York City Police Department revealed few details about the envelope, other than that it was received “inside the location” at about 12:03 pm ET. Authorities did not disclose any information about the sender or the addressee.

Citing an anonymous source, Fox News reported that the envelope contained a note: “Alvin—I’ll kill you.”

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office announced that the enclosed powder wasn’t dangerous.

“The DA has informed the office that it was immediately contained and that the NYPD Emergency Service Unit and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection determined there was no dangerous substance,” a spokeswoman said.

Tensions have been high in lower Manhattan since Trump erroneously predicted that he would be arrested this past Tuesday, calling upon his supporters to “PROTEST” and “TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”

That post on Truth Social sparked comparisons to the lead-up to the Jan. 6th attack on the US Capitol, but few of Trump’s supporters actually showed up to the plaza across the street from Manhattan Criminal Court, located downtown at 100 Center Street. That isn’t to say that the atmosphere has been subdued.

Before hearing in Trump’s $250 million civil fraud lawsuit, the judge’s clerk announced that proceedings had been delayed because of a “security issue” affecting the complex of courthouses in lower Manhattan. That threat was resolved shortly after, with the clerk announcing: “We’re all safe.”
