Trump Judge White Powder Bombshell Revealed

On the same day that former President Donald Trump sought to appeal for a bond amounting to less than a quarter of the hefty fine imposed on him in his civil fraud trial, an unsettling incident unfolded. The judge who had delivered the ruling, Judge Arthur Engoron, received an envelope at the Manhattan courthouse where his chambers are situated. The envelope contained an unidentified white powder.



Despite being addressed to Judge Engoron, the judge’s mail undergoes screening as a standard procedure. However, two court staffers did come into contact with the powder. According to NBC New York, these individuals “did not immediately appear to have been harmed by their exposure.” The envelope also contained a letter, but its contents were not disclosed.

Law enforcement authorities, as reported by The New York Post, determined that the white powder was harmless. The FDNY (Fire Department of New York) informed the Post that the two staffers who had encountered the powder “refused” medical treatment. Importantly, the building was not evacuated during this incident.

The backdrop to this unsettling event traces back to Engoron’s ruling on February 16, in which he decreed that Trump must pay a staggering $354 million in damages for being found liable for fraud. In addition, Trump was prohibited from conducting business in New York for a three-year period. Subsequently, with the accrual of interest under New York law, the total amount escalated to $454 million.

In response to this substantial financial obligation, Trump’s legal team, on the following Wednesday, made a request to post a $100 million bond. This move prompted commentary from many observers who noted that the request for a significantly lower bond amount could be indicative of the former president’s financial constraints, implying that he may not possess the full amount ordered for payment.

The incident involving the mysterious white powder added a layer of intrigue to an already high-stakes legal situation. While authorities determined that there was no actual threat posed by the substance, the incident underscored the tensions surrounding Trump’s legal challenges and the financial ramifications he faces in the aftermath of the civil fraud trial.
