Preet Bharara is plotting his revenge
New York Post ^ | March 19, 2017 | By Aaron Short

Preet Bharara is ready for his close-up.

Bharara — who was dismissed as Manhattan US attorney last weekend when he refused a Trump administration order to ­resign — is angling for a TV gig that could help launch a run for elected office, a source told The Post.

“He’s trying to be a liberal Bill O’Reilly,” the source claimed.

Bharara, 48, could be hoping to land a news show on CNN or MSNBC, “a half-investigative reporting, half Larry King-type show, [where] he can be the special correspondent.”

But in the short-term, Bharara is looking to appear on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” — to prove he’s camera-ready, the source said.

“Preet really wants to do Colbert,” the source said. “He thinks Stephen’s really funny and that it’s a way to audition for a gig, where executives will take notice and say, ‘We should give this guy a show. . ."

He wants to host a TV show? LOL. Maybe in India, or one some fifth-rate cable station that gets lower ratings than an overnight test pattern on TV.

He's going to have to change his name to Pete Ferrara or something like that is he wants to attract a real TV audience.

Wanting to be on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” is all the more reason to fire this partisan.

And to think, some FReepers were sorry to see this guy go.

Thinking Colbert is funny points to a lack of judgment.

Whenever I think of these high fallootin Indian American lawyers and politicians , telling us here in America ‘how it’s going to be ‘ or ‘ how it should be ‘ , I am reminded of my times in India , stepping around all the crap ,where millions of Indians do it in the street . Or the smell of cheap hotel rooms , saturated with decades of cheap Indian hair oil and body lotions .

Better they take care of their own house first .

I am so glad that this so called public servant is no longer with the federal government.

He only cared about himself and his career. He cared nothing about the American people that he was supposed to be serving.

He’d have to have a show on a network someone watches in order to get a political benefit...

Whenever I hear or read so-called conservatives praising an obvious leftist, I cringe, but also know that his true stripes will inevitably surface.

Hey, Preet, retire to some lovely paradise like Kuwait. Nice summers there.

Hate to break it to you, Preet... but television is becoming about as relevant as the buggy whip.

His father was moslem.

Got a link for that?

His father was Sikh, and his mother Hindu.

Trash him for what he is – a grand-standing, overambitious, hotshot federal prosecutor – not for what he is not.

Welcome him to the Dreaded Private Sector. Be thankful to DJT for putting him there.

This article is the only one I saw; so just now I did another search and it appears the article below is wrong, and this his wife’s father was a moslem, and Bharara’s was a Sikh.

4. Dalya’s Father Is a Muslim & Jewish Mother

Dalya’s father is a Muslim and his mother is a Jewish, Miami Diario reported.

Preet described in an interview his family’s heritage. He joked that with the diversity in religions and different traditions that come with them, he is never hungry.

Four different families of four different voices – half a century ago, all had to flee because of their religion. When my wife fasts for Yom Kippur or my father-in-law fasts in Ramadan, I am stuffed all day with samosa (a kind of pie).

The New York Times reported in 2009 that Dalya’s father moved from India to Pakistan and lost his home after the 1947 violent migration. Her mother was born in Palestine after her father — Dalya’s grandfather — escaped Nazi Germany.
