We’ve seen the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has had a lot of questionable things regarding its case against former President Donald Trump involving alleged hush money payments to Stormy Daniels.

First, Democrat Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg didn’t pursue the matter when he came into office. He had prosecutors quit over it, but he didn’t want to pursue any action against Trump. The feds also didn’t think there was anything they should be pursuing. But then Bragg — for some reason, let’s guess why — flipped and indicted Trump a few months after he declared he was running for president in 2024.

However, even before we found out officially what the charges were, there was someone leaking out information on them, which is completely improper. That was the real wrongdoing here, as I wrote at the time.

Because of those leaks, I was able to figure out and predict the nature of the indictment before it even was officially released, that they were going to be basically “cutting and pasting” a similar charge, more than 34 times. That’s not 34 completely separate incidents; that’s different entries in a ledger or checks revolving around the same matter. That’s to try to make it look like it was more than it was. Legal experts across the spectrum looked at the indictment and didn’t think it was worth much.

However, don’t expect anyone to be held accountable for those leaks because that wouldn’t serve the narrative. They will go away, without any punishment like all the weaponized law enforcement against Trump has seemed to go.

Now, there’s more concerning news.

According to law enforcement sources who spoke to the NY Post, a supervising detective who has worked on the case against former President Donald Trump has been suspended for his contact with Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and now, adversary.

Jeremy Rosenberg, who investigates financial crimes for Bragg, had his gun removed recently for his interactions with Cohen, the sources claimed.

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

A law enforcement source said Bragg’s office is looking at how Rosenberg shared communications about Cohen with the office.

That raises a lot of questions if this is true — and Bragg’s office does seem to be acknowledging something happened that they’re looking into. Why was he having such contact with Cohen? The media should demand answers from Bragg’s office as to what was going on here.

It will also likely raise the eyebrows of the Trump defense to ask what was happening here, whether or not this affects the case against him, as well as if it involves anything that should be properly disclosed to them. Under the law, they are required to turn over discovery as well as anything that could potentially be exculpatory

Add in more questions and intrigue — Bragg’s office is a mess. This case already stinks to high heaven of politics, as it is. Democrats probably thought they could use this case to run down Trump in the run-up to the election. But so far, all it’s done is seem to give him a big boost in the polls.
