(FeaturedNews.com) – On Tuesday, a bomb threat was called into a lower Manhattan court right before the judge started hearing a $250 million lawsuit against former President Donald Trump. Following the threat, the court had been closed until the police and authorities could determine whether it was an actual threat.
According to Lucian Chalfen, a court spokesman, the threat was unfounded.
The civil lawsuit was filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) against Trump with the allegation that Trump, his company, and his family had inflated the value of their assets in order to benefit from more premium conditions in the agreement. The suit was filed in September.
On Tuesday, Trump criticized James on social media following the bomb threat news, by stating that Congress needed to investigate James and that the lawsuit was “completely bogus.” Trump, in his Truth Social post, also pointed out that James’ campaign was “solely” focused on a “’ I WILL GET TRUMP’ platform,” despite the two not knowing one another.
The threat in the lower Manhattan court comes at a time when law enforcement is planning for a possible protest following Trump’s assertion this past weekend that he would be arrested in connection to a Manhattan investigation into the hush payments allegedly made on his behalf to Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election.
On Saturday, Trump had asserted that he had expected to be arrested on Tuesday, and had also called on his supporters to protest his arrest.
