(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Wednesday morning, the downtown Manhattan courthouse experienced an emergency situation when an envelope containing white powder was sent to Judge Arthur Engoron, who presided over Donald Trump’s civil fraud case. Court officials, including spokesperson Al Baker, reported that the incident took place around 9:30 a.m. at the New York County Courthouse. The envelope, addressed to Judge Engoron, prompted an immediate response when court staff discovered the suspicious substance inside.

The area where the letter was found was quickly sealed off, and those who came into contact with it were isolated as a precaution. Preliminary tests indicated that the substance was nonhazardous. Baker reassured the public that Judge Engoron was not exposed to the envelope or its contents and that the courthouse remained operational while law enforcement undertook an investigation into the matter.

The New York Police Department’s 5th Precinct was called to the scene following a report of the suspicious powder, which had accidentally come into contact with a court officer’s clothing. The police have yet to confirm that the letter was indeed intended for Judge Engoron.

This security concern follows several threats directed at Judge Engoron, including a bomb threat at his Long Island residence last month, around the time of Trump’s trial. Consequently, security measures around the judge were intensified.

The incident occurred shortly after Judge Engoron had ruled that Trump must pay nearly $355 million in penalties, a sum that increases daily by nearly $112,000 in interest until paid, for conspiring to inflate his net worth for tax and insurance benefits. The total amount now owed by Trump exceeds $454 million. Trump has since appealed the ruling.
