    Bragg Detective Involved In Trump ‘Hush Money’ Case Suspended For Michael Cohen Ties

    Published on

    This week, the case of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg against former President Donald Trump heated up once more.

    According to law enforcement sources, a “supervising detective” facilitating Bragg’s case against Trump has been suspended due to his contact with Michael Cohen, who formerly served as Trump’s attorney and is now opposed to the 45th president.

    “Jeremy Rosenberg, who investigates financial crimes for Bragg, had his gun removed recently for his interactions with Cohen, the sources claimed. A law enforcement source said Bragg’s office is looking at how Rosenberg shared communications about Cohen with the office,” New York Post reported. “Rosenberg also assisted in the prosecution of Steve Bannon in the alleged $15 million border-wall fundraising scam, for which Trump pardoned him. He did not return a call for comment.”

    “The office is conducting a review of an investigator’s compliance with internal office protocols,” a Bragg spokeswoman said.

    Cohen’s attorney, Lanny J. Davis, stated, “The interactions between Mr. Rosenberg, Michael Cohen, and myself were always professional and focused on Mr. Cohen’s personal security, which we greatly appreciated.”

    Bragg opposed an effort by Trump’s attorneys to transfer his hush-money case to federal court last week. Late last month, Trump’s attorneys argued that the case cannot be tried in a state court because the alleged violations occurred while he was president, making it a federal matter.

    In court documents filed on Tuesday, Manhattan prosecutors argued that the case should remain in state court because the former president’s “alleged criminal conduct had no connection to his official duties and responsibilities as President, but instead arose from his unofficial actions relating to his private businesses and pre-election conduct.”

    A grand jury in Manhattan indicted Trump on 34 counts of falsifying business documents related to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

    Trump allegedly sent Daniels a payment prior to the 2016 election in order to silence Daniels about their affair in 2006. Trump pled not guilty to the 34 counts against him.

    Several legal experts have argued since the indictment that Bragg’s case is exceedingly weak.

    “The question to ask yourself in a case like this [is], ‘Would a case like this be brought against anybody else, whether he or she be president, former president or a regular citizen?’ The answer is… no,” Former Whitewater deputy counsel Sol Wisenberg said.

    “You can debate all day long whether or not… Trump should be indicted related to the records at Mar-a-Lago, whether or not he should be indicted with respect to Jan. 6 incitement of lawless activity… Those are real crimes if they occurred, and he committed them,” he said. “This is preposterous.”

    Former federal and New York State prosecutor Tali Farhadian Weinstein said: “Bragg is making a strategic decision to push back against Donald Trump and it might backfire. The former president is demanding that the Manhattan District Attorney’s office provide a ‘bill of particulars,’ outlining the specific reason they upgraded his charges of business record fraud from misdemeanors to felonies in the Stormy Daniels hush payment case — something that under New York law, requires the fraud to have been committed in order to cover up a second crime. Bragg has declined to provide it so far. This could actually be a problem for Bragg.”
