If you’re not familiar with Preetinder Singh “Preet” Bharara – the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, centered on New York City and surrounding counties – then you haven’t been following our ongoing coverage of his prosecution of numerous New York elected officials over the past few years. The man is absolutely fearless when it comes to persons of political power and maintains a reputation for the apolitical pursuit of justice generally only applied to the movie version of Eliot Ness.Yeah, well, color me skeptical. There was this other career prosecutor, the big dog in the FBI, a guy who was supposed to be incorruptible. What was his name? - - That's right, James Comey. He sold out in a flash, detailing felonies on national TV, then saying that he wouldn't prosecute them. The world was aghast, police officers everywhere had coronary events, and Hillary breathed a sigh of relief. Now, she believes that Comey vindicated her.
Now, we're expected to believe that another career federal prosecutor is actually looking into corruption allegations about the Clintons? Yeah, right. I'll believe it when the indictments come down and both Bill and Hillary have posted bail. Until then, I'll consider the example that Comey set as being representative of US federal law enforcement. They're in the tank for the power, and don't give a damn about the people.
