The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, under Soros-backed Alvin Bragg, has suspended a top detective involved in the criminal prosecution of former President Donald Trump due to conflicting contacts with Michael Cohen, Trump’s disgraced former lawyer who made hush payments to Stormy Daniels.
Jeremy Rosenberg, known as an investigator of financial crimes associated with the Soros-backed DA, had his gun taken away while an internal review examines his connections to Cohen, according to law enforcement officials who spoke to the New York Post on Saturday.
“The office is conducting a review of an investigator’s compliance with internal office protocols,” a spokeswoman for Bragg told the Post.
The exact nature and extent of the interactions between Rosenberg and Cohen are unclear. However, Cohen’s attorney, Lanny J. Davis, rushed to defend the potentially unethical ties, claiming, “The interactions between Mr. Rosenberg, Michael Cohen, and myself were always professional and focused on Mr. Cohen’s personal security, which we appreciated.”
Trump took to Truth Social to celebrate Rosenberg’s suspension. He cited legal experts who warn that the DA’s office could be forced to drop the case immediately.
The former president and leading candidate for the GOP primary in the 2024 presidential election, also torched Mark Pomerantz, a former attorney with ties to the Clinton administration who had been working for Bragg but resigned in protest due to the initial reluctance of the DA’s office to charge Trump.
Pomerantz, along with radical far-left activists, pressured Bragg to file weak charges against the former president’s alleged criminal hush payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. Bragg is accusing Trump of falsifying business records, an act the DA’s office considers a felony. But even some of Trump’s biggest critics warned that this case lacks merit.
Although Trump suggested that the case might be dropped, the Post did not clarify whether the suspension of Rosenberg could impact the high-profile and unprecedented partisan prosecution of a former U.S. president.
Nevertheless, former Manhattan prosecutor Mark Bederow told the Post that the ties to Cohen could benefit Trump’s defense team.
“It might not affect the case, but certainly from a defense standpoint they would want to know what’s the nature of their relationship,” said Bederow. “What did they talk about and did this detective investigator have anything that fits the form of a disclosure to the defense.”
