Yep, just a giant coincidence that Preet Bharara was one of the federal prosecutors to suddenly lose his job the other day..@StevenTDennis-Kislyak says they are pushing trump to release Russian mobsters @PreetBharara convicted #trumprussiahttps://t.co/aBJ7Ej9CYz— Scott Dworkin (@funder) March 12, 2017
Bharara aslo hinted on Twitter that a possible reason he was fired was because he was investigating Trump himself.

The Moreland Commission was established in July of 2013 by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and charged with rooting out corruption in the state government. However, the group was disbanded by the governor within a year because, Reuters said, it was coming too close to exposing Cuomo’s own shady dealings.
“Wow,” tweeted David Corn of Mother Jones. “Moreland Commission was created by Cuomo to probe NYS corruption & then disbanded by him. Is Bharara implying he was probing Trump?”
It seems to me that there were a number of reasons that Trump and his Russian puppet masters would have wanted Bharara removed from office.
And what better way to hide the fact that he was the target but to fire ALL of the federal prosecutors appointed by President Obama at the same time?
