The White House offered an explanation on Sunday for a mysterious phone call that President Trump placed to Preet Bharara a day before abruptly dismissing him and 45 other United States attorneys, saying the president was merely trying to extend his good wishes.
But Mr. Bharara indicated on Sunday evening in a statement to The New York Times that he was skeptical of the White House account, although he did not offer an alternative explanation for the president’s call.
The call, placed on Thursday to the office of Mr. Bharara, the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, by a personal assistant to the president, concerned Mr. Bharara because it seemed to be at odds with ethics protocols restricting communications between the White House and prosecutors. Mr. Bharara declined to return the call. But the White House said there was nothing untoward about it.
“The president reached out to Preet Bharara on Thursday to thank him for his service and to wish him good luck,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a White House spokeswoman, said in an email.
Count your blessings. I would have reached out to you to tell you to kiss my ass. Let’s stop with the adolescent bitching now, okay?
If you had gone after HRC, Bill, Anthony Weiner, DynCorp and the other bad actors associated with pedogate and nation toppling in North Africa, as well as anyone associated with The Clinton Foundation and The Clinton Global Initiative for money laundering and extortion, then I would have kept you around and paid you well.
But you didn’t. You’re a coward, and under your watch you can always remember that the real criminals got away because you were to scared to do your job and honor your oath.
Be gone. I hope I never hear about you again unless it’s to put you in handcuffs yourself for corruption. Mr. Morally outraged, indeed. What a damn hypocrite.
