Trump Judge Receives Envelope With White Substance

By    |   Wednesday, 28 February 2024 03:13 PM EST

An envelope with a white substance addressed to Arthur Engoron, the New York City judge who oversaw former President Donald Trump's civil fraud trial, was discovered Wednesday in the downtown Manhattan courthouse where he works, causing an emergency response from police and fire officials, according to news reports.

The incident happened at 9:55 a.m. Wednesday.

Engoron last week imposed a $355 million judgment against Trump.

Two court officers were exposed to the substance, but preliminary tests on the powder came back negative, according to people who spoke with ABC News.

According to the New York Post, New York state Attorney General Letitia James also received a suspicious envelope at her Albany office.

Engoron has received multiple threats since being assigned to Trump's fraud civil trial.

Authorities last month responded to a bomb threat at Engoron's Long Island home the day after he issued a ruling preventing Trump from delivering his own closing statements in the civil fraud case against him. Nothing amiss was found.
