Donald Trump is a much weaker figure than he was a year ago. He’s obviously no longer the president and doesn’t have the massive platform that comes along with the office. And he’s been banned from Twitter where millions of people listened to his rants.
Preet Bharara has a pretty good idea of how Donald Trump operates. When Trump took office, Bharara was working as the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York. The 45th president fired the renowned judge shortly after taking office.
One of Donald Trump’s first actions as President was to fire US Attorney Preet Bharara. The move was met with widespread condemnation. Bharara had become a hero in New York City after prosecuting a number of the city’s worst financial cheats.
It’s hard to imagine anyone staining their reputation as bad as Rudy Giuliani has. At one point, he was a revered Mayor or one of the biggest cities in America.
Fast forward 20 years and the Trump lawyer was holding a news conference next to a sex shop. There was also the humiliating appearance in the latest Borat film.
Preet Bharara, the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, tweeted a list of everything he believes is wrong with President Donald Trump, calling him “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on America.”
Giuliani argued that Trump has the power to pardon himself, but according to Preet Bharara, a Trump pardon of himself would almost be self-executing impeachment.
Trump loves to tweet, and now twitter is firing back at the president who has been posting some nasty tweets about Amazon and Jeff Bezos. Many people on the White House staff have tried to stop Trump from tweeting, but to no avail. Now former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara has come up with a great suggestion.
Former US Attorney Preet Bharara told ABC's This Week that he believes that there is enough evidence to begin an investigation of President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice in relation to the firing of James Comey.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, suggested that President Trump could have changed his mind on firing US Attorney Preet Bharara because he had been asked to investigate the President's potential violations of the Emoluments Clause.
