Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg received a death threat and white powder was mailed to his office amid the possible indictment of former President Donald Trump.

The white powder was delivered on Friday and came with a note that said "Alvin -- I'll kill you."

Police determined after containing it that the powder was harmless. It was postmarked Tuesday and mailed from Orlando, Florida.

Trump thought he would be arrested this week, but there was some dissension in Bragg's office about how to proceed, sources said.

Bragg said his office would continue its probe of Trump.

“‘I know it hasn’t been easy,” Bragg wrote in an email to employees, referring to “press attention and security around our office. We will continue to apply the law evenly and fairly."
