“A bomb threat was called in just as a judge in lower Manhattan was about to start a hearing over a $250 million lawsuit by New York Attorney General Letitia James against Donald Trump,” Bloomberg reports.
Although much attention has focused on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg potentially indicting Trump in the Stormy Daniels “hush money” prosecution, Letitia James is also going after Trump in another case.
Read a brief background on the Letitia James witch hunt at ABC News:
For 20 years, Donald Trump and his family enriched themselves through “numerous acts of fraud and misrepresentations,” New York Attorney General Letitia James alleges in a new lawsuit that accuses the Trumps of “grossly” inflating the former president’s net worth by billions of dollars and cheating lenders and others with false and misleading financial statements.

The civil lawsuit, filed Wednesday in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, seeks a $250 million judgment and a prohibition on any of the Trumps leading a company in the state of New York.
“We found that Mr. Trump, his children, and the corporation used more than 200 false asset valuations over a ten year period,” James said at a press conference announcing the charges.
State civil cases are heard at the building where the $250 million lawsuit hearing is being held.

Tuesday’s 911 call was investigated, the courthouse at 60 Centre Street temporarily closed and searched, and the threat deemed unfounded, state court spokesman Lucian Chalfen said.
The building, featured in the opening footage of Law and Order, is where state civil cases are heard. James sued Trump, his company and three of his children in September for allegedly inflating the value of his real estate company’s assets.”
ABC 7 reported on other bomb threats in the area:
As the NYPD prepares for potential unrest, the department and other NYC agencies received numerous bomb threats in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday morning — and not just at the courthouses. All were determined to be unfounded
Trump over the weekend claimed without evidence that he would be arrested on Tuesday, but there was no indication that prediction would come true. A Manhattan grand jury did appear to take an important step forward on Monday by hearing from a witness favorable to Trump, presumably so prosecutors could ensure the panel had a chance to consider any testimony supporting his version of events.
