    Bharara says he "mistrusts" Trump so he thought he might say something inappropriate. there must be more to this!

    Recording the president without his knowledge (in the White House) seems like it should be a felony. It would be super interesting to hear those conversations., but that sets a bad precedent.

    Pistol Preet says Trump was trying to cultivate a relationship with him so that he helps him with the Russia investigation down the road, and when Pistol Preet refused to take Trump's call, he got fired!

    I didn't watch your vid, but I have always suspected that Trump got rid of Bharara in order to get someone in there who would make the Russian money laundering case go away that was being defended by the attorney that arranged the meeting at Trump Tower in 2016.

    Jeff Sessions ordered that case be settled for a ridiculously small amount of money. I've always wondered what Trump was sweeping under the rug. Or maybe the Russians were just calling in a favor?

    Man o man, Trump was being creepy when he first got elected. All that buddy-buddy "scratch my back, will ya, and maybe I'll scratch yours someday." And loyalty oaths and non disclosure agreements. He sounds more like a mob boss.

    Pistol Preet prosecuted more Democrats than Republicans as US Attorney. he is an American patriot!
