Fired US Attorney Preet Bharara claims that Donald Trump tried to establish a potentially unethical relationship with him, and when rebuffed he fired him. Update!

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

President Donald Trump fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara the day after the prosecutor refused to return a call from him, Bharara said on ABC News’ “This Week” Sunday. 

Bharara said he viewed direct contact from the president to himself, as a law-enforcement official, to be an inappropriate breach of protocol and reported it to the office of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on March 9. “Twenty-two hours later, I was fired,” Bharara said. 

Bharara’s account echoes the testimony of former FBI Director James Comey, who told the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that Trump contacted him directly by phone numerous times between the presidential transition and Comey’s own dismissal last month. Comey also testified about one-on-one meetings he had with Trump, some of which he said left him feeling uncomfortable.

I kind of recognize this as a technique that Trump developed during his years in New York real estate which was to establish relationships with people in the position to help him or hurt him, and attempt to influence their decisions through some type of bribery, intimidation, and eventually outright threats.

I really believe that is the reason that Bharara lost his job, and that the other 45 US Attorneys were fired to cover it up.

By the way those 46 positions remain unfilled, along with the other 47 created by previous resignations, leaving a whopping 93 openings in the Justice Department, and that is only a portion of them.

Update: Bharara also says that there is absolutely enough evidence to launch an obstruction of justice case against Trump.


  1. If the headline had been about a US attorney complaining about Obama, how soon would there be rumors about Obama being Gay? Any guesses?

    Ah, well, you know, he's new. He doesn't know how it works. He's a business man.
    JFC. Enough already.

    1. I thought the litmus test for the occupant of the WH was who can take that 3 AM phone call?

      Drumpf would prolly be awake, but then tell whoever to contact him via Twitter only.

    The long list of those bribed, extorted, threatened, harassed, and injured by trump and associates grows daily. As far back as the 12 yrs old trump, he has been a bully. A known bully, liar, thief and criminal. He cannot rig an election and pretend to be us president. He and his enablers will be legally held accountable for their crimes against American's and the USA Constitution.

    I hope the Dems can win back House or Senate in 2018.

    Above all else, that will mean a real attempt at impeachment, and kill Trump's bullshit narcissistic agenda, and be the end of any bills he wants to pass

    I'm betting if he does get impeached, and the Senate confirms he will refuse to leave the White house, and will have to be dragged out screaming like the cowardly bastard we know he is

    MSNBC just announced Jeff Sessions will appear tomorrow in an open session.

    I dont know if the tv video was an old one. The tv showed Melania and Trump exiting Marine One at the White House. Someone must have schooled Melania that when entering or exiting Air Force One and Marine One they must hold hands and schooled Trump not to leave Melania behind when exiting or entering Air Force One or Marine One? Once you enter the White House do what you want to do.

    They are showing Trump's cabinet sitting around a table. I'm surprised Ivanka is not sending next to President Daddy and where is Jared? Is he still organizing communication with the Kremlin?

    Listening to Labor Secretary Acosta talk about apprenticeship program. He began effusively praising Ivanka Trump so I got distracted trying to figure out where he keeps his balls ( I think he left them in the anteroom) but I managed to get that there is no apprenticeship program. This guy and Daughter Dearest just go around asking CEO's to hire apprentices. It's "private private" he says - i.e. Trump does Nothing.
    Trump does nothing. For anyone. And laughs at America. It's up to us to stop reading his tweets and start getting out the vote for 2018. We deserve better, even the poor souls who voted for him.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
