    Trump Makes Genius Legal Maneuver In His Battle With Alvin Bragg

    Published on

    Alan Dershowitz, a renowned attorney, applauds former President Donald Trump for employing a legal strategy in his conflict with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

    Dershowitz argued that Trump filing a $500 million lawsuit against Michael Cohen, his former personal attorney, was the ideal “trump card” because it will assist his case while hurting Bragg.

    Cohen testified before the Manhattan grand jury that indicted Trump on 34 felony counts of falsifying business documents involving 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.

    Trump’s lawsuit against Cohen, according to Dershowitz, was a “legitimate move” that should have been taken.

    “Good move. Good move. First of all, lawyers should not be violating lawyer-client privilege, number one. Number two, he gets a discovery, if he survives a motion to dismiss, and he is going to be able to find out things the government wouldn’t turn over to him in a criminal trial. So I think it’s a very smart move to go after Trump,” Dershowitz said.

    “It’s very hard these days to hide things forever. With the internet, with social media, if you get the right people you can get things that people think they have hidden. So, I’m glad we are going to get to the bottom of this. Look, transparency is essential. If people have nothing to hide, they shouldn’t be worried,” he added.

    Trump alleged in his lawsuit that Cohen violated attorney-client privilege by disclosing confidential information and disseminating lies about him “with malice and solely for his own benefit.”

    “Plaintiff has suffered vast reputational harm as a direct result of Defendant’s breaches,” the lawsuit stated, which was filed by Trump attorney Alejandro Brito in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

    “Defendant derived a significant benefit, to Plaintiff’s detriment and at Plaintiff’s expense, as a direct result of his breach of fiduciary duty, including, without limitation, realization of substantial monetary gain in the form of compensation, advances, royalties, proceeds and/or profits received for his role in the writing, publication, promotion, and/or sale of the Books,” the lawsuit stated.

    Trump is seeking over $500 million in “actual, compensatory, incidental, and punitive damages” from Cohen, as well as any profits from Cohen’s podcast and books.

    Cohen has already become a problem for Bragg.

    A “supervising detective” assisting Bragg’s case against Trump has been suspended for his contact with Cohen, according to law enforcement sources.

    “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.”
