The Independent@hashtagbroom

-How could people not know that this was a huge blunder on Trump's part. In "Independent" Elijah Cumming said, "There is (SIC) a lot of questions as to whether President Trump is concerned about the jurisdiction of this US attorney and whether that might affect his future."

Doesn't seem like just a coincidence that Bharara was fired "just days" after ethics campaigners asked him to investigate, "payments and financial benefits from foreign government" benefiting the new President, which could have potentially breached his constitutional duties.

Mr. Bharara, who oversaw the powerful and affluent southern district of New York, was one of 46 chief Federal law enforcement officers fired or asked to reisign by Mr. trump last week."

 

It was Bharara who put away Sheldon Silver and other crooked politicians, including a complex scheme involving a bribery to secure a place on the Republican ballot in the 2013 NYC mayoral election.'

"Cummin suggested that this had prompted Mr. trump to order trump's firing."

Once no longer in his official capacity, Bharara will not-in some instances-be bound to secrecy when discussing some of the things he was investigating.

Maybe most importantly--bharara once worked for Chuck Schumer, who  strongly opposses Trump--doesn't take a genius to figure out that those two will be talking!! 

 

 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

No, he didn't screw up, he's doing exactly as others have done before him. If this character knows soooo much, he's going to tell all whether he's in the job or not.

This, a typical example of liberal spin. Did you complain when Obama and Clinton did the same? Did you?..

PS-draining the swamp!

Donald Trump may have fired US Attorney to stop him investigating his finances, top Democrats suggest

US Attorney Preet Bharara was fired by Donald Trump to stop him from investigating his financial affairs, senior Democrats have suggested.

===================================================
"many have" "Democrats have suggested"

Business as usual ....with a new administration all US Attorneys that are of the "other" party resign...its SOP and I think it was done in the past under both Democrats and Republicans.

Preet Bharara can do as he wants.

It so much to ado about nothing...just more crying by the party that lost.

If you look at the "lock-step" actions of the Dems and the contentiousness of the Reps you see that is not a valid point.

What our wingers desperatily want to evade in this is the facts.

FACT: The factual nature of the post is as valid as the spelling of "desperatily". 

FACT: Der Trumper met with Atty Bharara months ago and promised Bharara he could keep his job.

FACT: Forever????

FACT: There is no one named "Der Trumper" on the political scene.

FACT: Bharara is notorious for investigating high level corruption, REGARDLESS of the political affiliation of the corrupt.

FACT: Not related to the right that all Presidents have and do exercise to replace them.

FACT: Bharara's district includes the places Trumpettes have colluded with Russians and engaged in questionable campaign activities before and after his coming to power.

FACT: There are no such things as "Trumpettes" so who did this supposed "colluding"?

FACT: Did he wire tap Trump Tower? If not, the point is irrelevant
