The NYPD and FBI are investigating a white power letter sent to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg threatening him with death.
The FBI and NYPD are investigating a letter containing a death threat and white powder that was sent to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whose office is investigating former President Donald Trump, law enforcement officials told NBC News.
The letter was addressed to Bragg and read, “ALVIN: I WILL KILL YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!” the sources said. It contained a small amount of white powder.
The white powder was harmless and no one was injured. The letter was sent from Orlando, Florida. It was dated Tuesday, the same day Donald Trump falsely claimed he would be arrested.

Death threats against Bragg from Trump supporters come as no surprise because the former President spent days attacking the Manhattan District Attorney, who seems poised to indict him as early as next week.
The mass protests Trump has called for have not materialized, but that doesn’t mean his less stable supporters will just sit on the couch and watch Fox News while their hero may face prosecution.
Threats against Alvin Bragg are only likely to increase in the coming days. Trump incites his most extreme supporters, but none of this will save him from being held accountable for possible crimes.
