Not the first time. Don’t forget the envelope with suspicious powder sent to Eric Trump, which was opened by his wife in their home also putting at risk their children. The scum that does this has got to found. What’s awful, with all the hysteria ginned up by both sides, I don’t know if it’ll be liberals or those who ID as conservatives but loyal to the bureaucratic machine. Disgusting.

Six people, including a police officer, were being monitored at Trump Tower Thursday night after a suspicious white powder was found in a letter to the presidential frontrunner.

The white powder was found in the fifth floor office at Trump Tower, at 725 Fifth Ave. in Midtown around 8 p.m., the FDNY told CBS2.

The office is used by the Donald Trump presidential campaign, and is used by volunteers to make calls and open mail, sources told CBS2.

Sources said a young male intern opened a piece of mail addressed to Donald Trump, and the white powder spilled out, CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco reported.

Security at the building resealed the envelope and called 911, sources said.

The intern was decontaminated as a precaution, and other staffers in the vicinity were isolated, sources said. In all, five civilians and a police officer were being isolated and monitored, the FDNY said.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the NYPD Emergency Services Unit were called to the scene, sources said. The Secret Service and the NYPD were investigating.

Police Thursday night were testing the substance, but there was no indication that it was dangerous, sources said. But even if the substance turns out to be harmless, police said whoever sent the mail will be prosecuted.
