Aaron Schlossberg: Suspicious White Powder Found At Office Building Of Racist Rant Lawyer

The New York City Fire Department confirmed to Newsweek Thursday afternoon they were called to the 14th floor of 275 Madison Avenue in response to a suspicious white powder. The address was listed in public records as containing the law office of Aaron Schlossberg, the lawyer recorded on video recently ranting against Spanish speakers at a restaurant.

FDNY spokesperson Jim Long told Newsweek the scene was classified as a “hazardous materials” situation and that responders were still on site. At least one person was being “evaluated,” though no one had been transported for medical care.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
