Trump’s Lawyer Serves Wrong Man with Court Papers in “Hush Money” Case

In a surprising turn of events, Donald Trump’s lawyer, Todd Blanche, mistakenly served court papers to the wrong individual in the ongoing “hush money” case. The incident occurred when Blanche sent a subpoena to a man believed to be former District Attorney Supervising Rackets Investigator Jeremy Rosenberg, seeking files related to Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen. However, it was later discovered that the recipient was a different Jeremy Rosenberg, a Brooklyn resident unrelated to the case.

The mix-up became apparent when the Brooklyn resident responded to the Trump lawyers, stating that he had no files to provide and that the phone number they had provided was disconnected. To add a touch of humor, the man decided to keep the $15 that Trump’s lawyers had sent him to cover the cost of sending the documents.

Blanche, expressing frustration, criticized the man’s response, claiming he displayed a “flippant and dismissive approach” despite his supposed experience with the criminal justice system. However, prosecutor Matthew Colangelo clarified that Trump’s lawyers had indeed served court papers on the wrong individual.

Colangelo stated that the defendant had served the incorrect person and confirmed that the Brooklyn resident had no connection to the address where the subpoena was purportedly served. Blanche has not yet responded to requests for comment on the matter.

The case, scheduled for jury selection on April 15, revolves around allegations that Trump concealed payments made before the 2016 election to prevent porn star Stormy Daniels from disclosing an alleged affair with him. Trump, who has pleaded not guilty, faces 34 counts of falsifying business records, each carrying a potential prison sentence of up to four years.
