The supervising detective in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office was suspended and had his gun taken away last week. As if anyone needed further proof that Bragg’s office is a big hot mess. The reason for Detective Jeremy Rosenberg’s suspension was that he has been chumming around with President Donald Trump’s corrupt former lawyer, Michael Cohen. Bragg’s office is reportedly looking into Rosenberg’s interactions with Cohen to determine whether their newfound friendship may have compromised the integrity of Bragg’s bogus case against the former president.
“The office is conducting a review of an investigator’s compliance with internal office protocols,” said a spokesperson for Bragg.
As usual, President Trump seems to know more about what’s going on in Bragg’s office than our wildly incurious media. He took to his Truth Social platform to blast out a message in all caps:
“WOW! LEGAL EXPERTS ARE SAYING THAT D.A. ALVIN BRAGG WILL BE IMMEDIATELY FORCED TO DROP HIS WEAK & DISPARAGED CASE AGAINST ‘TRUMP’ BECAUSE HIS TOP INVESTIGATOR, JEREMY ROSENBERG, CORRUPTLY COLLUDED WITH A DISGRACED, DISBARRED, AND CONVICTED FELON & PERJURER IN ATTEMPTING TO FRAME ME WITH A “CRIME” THAT DOESN’T EVEN EXIST.”
Trump then continued by alleging that Rosenberg and Cohen “became close friends with lifestyle money spent, a crime.”
As usual, Trump is correct. It’s one thing for Rosenberg to have interviewed Cohen over the fake Stormy Daniels case. For the two of them to be hanging out together, socializing and having drinks is another matter. Just how badly has the budding friendship between the two potentially harmed Bragg’s already outlandish case?
Former Manhattan prosecutor Mark Bederow weighed in on the controversy, telling the New York Post, “Certainly from a defense standpoint they would want to know what’s the nature of their relationship. What did they talk about and did this detective investigator have anything that fits the form of a disclosure to the defense?”
Bragg’s weak case has been riddled with controversy from the get-go. Prosecutors in that Manhattan office tried to build a case against Trump for years and came up with nothing. Even Alvin Bragg himself, when he was first arrested, admitted that there was no case there. It was only after a prosecutor quit his job in the Biden Department of Justice and moved to New York to take a job in Bragg’s office that the case was revived.
There are so many holes in the case that it’s hard to know where to start. Stormy Daniels admitted in a 2018 sworn deposition that she never had relations with Donald Trump. She admitted the same thing under oath again in 2022 when she lost her civil case against Trump. The whole thing was an extortion plot cooked up by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who is now in prison.
Michael Cohen paid off Stormy Daniels without Trump’s knowledge. This is a fact that Cohen has been forced to admit while under oath. Cohen took out a second mortgage on his home to pay her $130,000, and he didn’t tell Trump about it at the time. Cohen then billed the Trump Organization for “legal expenses” to be reimbursed for the payment. However, that was in 2017 when Trump had divested from the Trump Organization. He wasn’t in charge of paying Cohen back and didn’t even know about it.
Bragg’s office has somehow twisted that non-crime into “34 felony counts” several years after the statute of limitations has expired. When it comes to President Trump’s enemies and the myriad ways that they are persecuting him, your safest bet is to always assume that the situation is much worse than anything that’s being reported. For Jeremy Rosenberg to be fired and have his gun taken away in that office, he must have done something really unethical with Michael Cohen.
