MANHATTAN, NEW YORK: The Manhattan District Attorney responsible for prosecuting the hush-money case involving Donald Trump, has expressed his frustration with the former president's attempts to postpone the trial.

In court filings submitted on Thursday, March 21, District Attorney Alvin Bragg called for the trial to commence next month, stating that "enough is enough."

Recently, Trump's legal team released a substantial volume of records, which they claim could be significant to the case and necessitate extensive review over several months.


Nevertheless, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office has declared that less than 300 of the 170,000-plus documents are pertinent to Trump's defense, according to a report by Huffpost.

These documents were furnished by federal prosecutors who previously investigated Michael Cohen, Trump's one-time personal lawyer.

What did District Attorney Alvin Bragg contend in court filings?

In one of the court filings, DA Bragg's office claimed that "the overwhelming majority of the production is entirely immaterial, duplicative or substantially duplicative of previously disclosed materials, or cumulative of evidence concerning Michael Cohen's unrelated federal convictions that defendant has been on notice about for months."

"Although that review is still ongoing, the People now have good reason to believe that this production contains only limited materials relevant to the subject matter of this case," the statement continued.

The legal team representing former President Donald Trump has recently attempted postponing the trial until the summer months. It should be noted that the prosecutors had already agreed to delay the start date of the trial from March to April 15th.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg speaks during a press conference following the arraignment of former U.S. President Donald Trump April 4, 2023 in New York City. Former U.S. President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts stemming from hush money payments in 2016. With his indictment, Trump will become the first former U.S. president in history to be charged with a criminal offense.

“Enough is enough,” Bragg’s office asserted in its filing.

The Manhattan District Attorney has responded to the allegations made by Trump’s legal counsel, requesting the dismissal of the case while also seeking sanctions against Bragg for releasing the documents belatedly.

The District Attorney's Office has refuted these claims, citing the fault of Trump's legal team in waiting until the eleventh hour to subpoena the records from the Southern District of New York. This district was the site of Cohen's prosecution and subsequent conviction in 2018.

The filing on Thursday claimed that the timing of the document's release was "entirely a result of defendant's own inexplicable and strategic delay in identifying perceived deficiencies in the People's disclosures," adding that "Ultimately, defendant's focus on purported discovery violations is a red herring."

The 34 felony counts of falsifying business records that are the subject of the trial that Trump's team is attempting to postpone are related to hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels in the days preceding the 2016 election.

Daniels claims that Cohen gave her $130,000 on Trump's behalf in exchange for her silence regarding a 2006 affair she had with the real estate tycoon.

Trump informed the Manhattan court last month that he intended to use the "advice of lawyers" in the hush money case to support his claim that his attorneys were involved in his actions and that he didn't do anything improper.

Trump has pled not guilty to all counts in the hush money case, as he has in the other three criminal indictments filed against him. There are 91 felonies against him overall.
