Court memos detail unethical, unpunished leaks in case handled by potential Biden AG Preet Bharara

Preet Bharara knew about FBI leaks two years before his office denied them. No one has been punished

Preet Bharara is often mentioned as a possible U.S. attorney general in a Joe Biden administration after building a reputation as a hard-charging federal prosecutor and self-proclaimed ethicist teaching law school and dispensing morality on Twitter.

But one of the last cases he handled as the chief federal prosecutor in New York City cuts against the grain of his carefully manicured image, exposing widespread leaking by the FBI — and knowledge of it by the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office — during the insider trading case of businessman and former Las Vegas sports gambler Billy Walters.

The government's misconduct initially was hidden from the judge, and to this day remains unpunished despite the court's demands for accountability, according to legal filings reviewed by Just the News.

Bharara personally had to admit the government's wrongdoing, filing under his name a lengthy report of misconduct with U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel in January 2017, shortly before President Trump fired Bharara as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.

After months of telling the court in 2016 that Walters' requests for evidence of grand jury leaks was "a fishing expedition," Bharara's office had to admit that a senior FBI agent in the case, David Chaves, and others in the FBI and U.S. attorney's office had contacts with the news media and one or more may have committed a crime by leaking grand jury evidence.

Preet should be disbarred from practicing law, and then kicked out of the law school where he walks around like a saint. But then again, most NY City law schools are full of Marxists, black racists, and America-haters.

And that was the reason that he was fired.

In retrospect, Flynn’s case is very similar. No one charged with a crime. No one held accountable. Judge Sullivan wants to whitewash the entire matter and still convict Flynn. BHARRA lied to the court. where are charges??
