According to the New York Post, one of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's detectives has been suspended.
The detective - Jeremy Rosenberg - reportedly investigates financial crimes for Bragg. And, Rosenberg is said to be involved in Bragg's prosecution of former President Donald Trump.
Bragg has charged Trump with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. The charges stem from the so-called hush-money payments that Trump, through his former attorney - Michael Cohen - made to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign.
It turns out that Rosenberg's suspension has to do with Cohen.
The Post, citing "law enforcement sources," reports that Rosenberg "has been suspended for his contact with . . . Cohen."
A spokeswoman for Bragg's office is quoted by the outlet as saying, "The office is conducting a review of an investigator’s compliance with internal office protocols."
At this time, specifics about the situation remain unknown.
Cohen’s attorney, Lanny J. Davis, has released a statement on the matter, saying, "The interactions between Mr. Rosenberg, Michael Cohen, and myself were always professional and focused on Mr. Cohen’s personal security, which we appreciated."
The question now is whether this suspension will have an effect on Bragg's case against Trump. Until more details are known, the answer is unclear.
Following the news of the suspension, Trump released a message on his social media site, Truth Social, in which cited "legal experts" as suggesting that Bragg, as a result of Rosenberg's actions, will be forced to drop the case against Trump.
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 event exist. They apparently became close freinds with lifestyle money spent, a crime.
The former president added, "this, on top of Clinton lawyer turned prosecutor, Mark Pomerantz, illegally writing a book on the case."
Pomerantz is a former member of the Manhattan District Attornies' office. He left the office after Bragg took over, disagreeing with Bragg's decision, at the time, not to prosecute Trump. Pomerantz had been investigating Trump and believed that Trump was "guilty of numerous felony violations," which Pomerantz went on to write about in a book.
It remains to be seen whether Bragg will drop the case. But, there certainly appear to be a lot of unsavory things happening behind the scenes - in addition to the unsavory charges themselves.
