Envelope containing suspicious powder addressed to ‘Alvin’ found in Manhattan DA Bragg’s office ahead of possible indictment after Trump warned of ‘death and destruction’
Emergency crews are responding to reports of a package containing a suspicious powder being mailed to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office.
The New York Police Department said the USPS delivered an envelope addressed to “Alvin” on Friday. The powder was found in the envelope.
The suspicious email comes as Bragg is building a case to potentially impeach former President Trump over hush money payments to Stormy Daniels in 2016.
The powder was discovered around noon in the basement mail room of the 80 Center Street office and determined to be non-hazardous.
A pair of bomb threats reached the courthouse earlier this week, delaying proceedings at least once.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is pictured Thursday arriving at his office.
On Truth Social Thursday, Trump shared an article about Bragg that was illustrated with an image of the former president holding a baseball bat, positioned next to one of the scared-looking Democratic DAs and raising his hand defensively.
And then, overnight, Trump called Bragg a “psycho degenerate” as he uttered the chilling threat that there would be “death and destruction” if he was charged with a crime.
While Trump initially said he would be arrested on Tuesday, and encouraged his supporters to ‘protest’! – Grand jury proceedings have wrapped up for the week, so a potential indictment won’t arrive until Monday at the earliest.
A source told DailyMail.com on Wednesday that Bragg is “having trouble convincing the jury to buy the case.” It’s a weak case and has caused divisions in the prosecutor’s office.
‘What kind of person can impeach another person, in this case a former president of the United States, who got more votes than any sitting president in history and a leading candidate (by far!) for the Republican Party nomination? , with a crime, when everyone knows that NO crime has been committed, and also that the potential death and destruction on such a false charge could be catastrophic for our country?’ Trump posted in Truth a little after 1 a.m. Friday.

The former president acknowledged that he approved a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels to settle what he called a “nuisance fee,” but denied the matter.
‘Why and who would do such a thing?’ she asked.
‘Just a psycho degenerate who really (sic) hates the US!’ he said, pointing a finger at Bragg.
Trump has deployed controversial rhetoric all week when he posts in Truth about the case.
On Thursday, he rejected calls for his supporters to be “peaceful” if he is impeached, which would be historic as no other former president has been charged in a criminal investigation after leaving office.
EVERYONE KNOWS I AM 100% INNOCENT, INCLUDING BRAGG, BUT HE DOESN’T CARE. HE IS JUST CARRYING OUT THE PLANS OF THE RADICAL LEFT LUNATICS. OUR COUNTRY IS BEING DESTROYED, AS WE’RE TOLD TO BE PEACE!’
On Friday morning, he simply wrote in Truth: ‘TAX MISCONDUCT!’
