Package with suspicious powder delivered to Manhattan DA’s office amid Trump investigation

Emergency personnel have responded after a package with suspicious powder was delivered to the New York City building housing the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, according to police.  The New York Police Department said the package was delivered by USPS on Friday. No injuries were reported, and as yet no one has been ordered to evacuate. Police responded to the scene shortly after 12 p.m.  District Attorney Alvin Bragg is currently weighing whether to proceed with an indictment against former President Donald Trump for alleged hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016. NY GRAND JURY NOT EXPECTED TO CONSIDER TRUMP CASE THURSDAY, SOURCE SAYS The grand jury involved in the Trump case has been meeting in the building where the suspicious package was reported, but it does not sit on Fridays. The grand jury was scheduled to meet Wednesday to hear from at least one additional witness in the case, but proceedings were canceled.  Two familiar sources told Fox News Digital on Wednesday that the grand jury was canceled amid “major dissension” within the district attorney’s office. One source claimed the district attorney is having trouble convincing the grand jury on potential charges due to the “weakness” of the case. Trump has not been formally notified about whether Bragg actually plans to bring charges against him, according to sources familiar.  TRUMP HUSH-MONEY GRAND JURY PROCEEDINGS ‘CANCELED’ FOR WEDNESDAY, SOURCES SAY Last week, Trump posted on Truth Social that leaks from the district attorney’s office indicated he would be arrested on Tuesday. He encouraged his supporters to protest the expected indictment and accused Bragg’s office of conducting a political “witch hunt.”  After the supposed arrest did not happen, Bragg wrote in a letter responding to several leading House Republicans’ requests for information on the Trump probe that the former president “created a false expectation” that his arrest was imminent. ALAN DERSHOWITZ EVISCERATES ALVIN BRAGG’S POTENTIAL TRUMP INDICTMENT: ‘I HAVE NEVER SEEN A WEAKER CASE’ In a private memo sent to employees, Bragg decried attempts by Trump and GOP lawmakers to “intimidate” their office. “We do not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or threaten the rule of law in New York,” Bragg said in an email to employees over the weekend that was obtained by Politico and confirmed by Fox News Digital. “Our law enforcement partners will ensure that any specific or credible threats against the office will be fully investigated and that the proper safeguards are in place so all 1,600 of us have a secure work environment.” Fox News’ Brooke Singman.
