Judge boots Saint Preet

Oh how the media protested when President Trump fired Democrat Preet Bharara. The media portrayed him falsely as the bane of Wall Street.

But Saint Preet was a sham political appointee hired from the staff of Democratic Senate Leader Crying Chuck Schumer to shakedown corrupt corporations to "donate" to Democratic Party "charities" to avoid criminal prosecution. I explained that already.

Now a judge has shown what kind of half-assed lawyer Bharara is in court.

First, the media love of Saint Preet.

From New York magazine:
On Saturday, Trump oversaw the firing of Preet Bharara, the U.S attorney for the Southern District of Manhattan, whose office is in the middle of a high-profile federal investigation of Fox News. The probe, according to sources, is looking at a number of potential crimes, including whether Fox News executives broke laws by allegedly obtaining journalists’ phone records or committed mail and wire fraud by hiding financial settlements paid to women who accused Roger Ailes of sexual harassment. Sources told me that prosecutors have been offering witnesses immunity to testify before a federal grand jury that’s already been impaneled.
Under Bush 43, a score of CEOs were sentenced to prison, including Ken Lay of Enron.

Under Obama, zero. They paid into a DOJ slush fund, which Trump just shut down.

But Sain Preet is a terrible lawyer whom the New York Bar should investigate after Newsday reported today on this abuse of power.

From Newsday:
A federal judge in Manhattan has reduced one count of a drug conviction and accused prosecutors of using “misleading” tactics in a case that former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara helped try in February, just before his firing earlier this year.
U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken said the government didn’t prove that accused dealer John Pauling’s heroin dealing involved 100 grams or more, which would carry a 10-year mandatory minimum prison sentence, but used misleading charts during summation to get jurors to convict on that charge.
The judge said prosecutors also broke a promise to let the defense see the charts in advance. “The Government made a commitment that it did not keep,” Oetken wrote. “Moreover, the Court is convinced that the use of the charts made a difference in the jury’s verdict.”
Bharara served as so-called second chair in the February trial, while younger prosecutors handled the questioning. It was the only case in which he served as a trial lawyer during his tenure as U.S. attorney in Manhattan.
The only case he actually tried as a U.S. attorney.

And he messed up big time.

Saint Preet is Fake News. The media lied about him.

Thank you, President Trump for canning this inept and corrupt prosecutor.





On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

  2. If a Democrat President has a pen and a phone, what need do they have of a justice system?

  3. Shake-Down Preet also sat behind Comey as one of Comey's friend and advisers during Comey's swan song before the Senate. Shakey Preet has particularly bad judgement.

    It's the rule that the prosecution has to share.
