Preet Bharara to Georgia congressman: You've hit a shocking new low to say that "Democrats are in Love with Terrorists"

I saw you blithely assert on national television that Democrats 'are in love with terrorists. We see that they mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families.' I get that terrorism is a threat. I prosecuted terrorists as US attorney yards from Ground Zero. We prosecuted plots orchestrated by him, including the conspiracy to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States in 2011. 

You are a pastor, an attorney and a sitting member of Congress. To utter such garbage, which you know to be false and defamatory, goes against the raining and teaching you received. 

I am not making some naive call for a return to 'civility' in our politics. I don't have much hope for that in the immediate future. I just want people like you to knock off the worst scurrilous nonsense. I'd hope that would be possible for a member of the House who is ranking member on the Judiciary Committee.

Comment by Rob Kall:

On Twitter Bharara posted that he was going to max out his contribution to the creep's Democratic opponent and encouraged others to do likewise.



the Hill reports: At least one of the candidates running against Collins in Georgia's 9th District is Devin Pandy. Pandy may see an uptick in donations today.

Ah, such a way with words!


I regret to remember how Preet took zero action on the crimes committed when he was US Attorney for the Southern NY district, crimes at the heart of the 128,000 purged voters mostly black and brown people in Brooklyn and the Bronx, just before the disastrous NY primary in 2016, but, hey, nobody is perfect, eh?



By comparison, the acting Attorney General then, Eric Schneiderman, also took no action whatsoever. He must have been playing sex games with his Sri Lankan girlfriend, slapping her around during intercourse, abuses which, when exposed in the New Yorker, led to his IMMEDIATE RESIGNATION.


I am glad to see that as CNN Legal Correspondent that Bharara is acting far more sensibly than he did as US Attorney, at least on the one issue that mattered to me, and the one issue that I formally presented to him.


I wrote several articles about that here at OEN, and here is one for example, and do please remember that these were 3 other people's sincere and hearfelt letters, not just mine, which were published in other articles at OEN:


Three Letters to Preet Bharara asking for Federal Court to Decertify NY's Primary and Order a New One

Remind these Republicans their mentor, the unpatriotic, amoral, unethical Ronald Reagan's first Act as president was to unfreeze Iranian assets in the USA in 1980. Later, the Reagan administration was caught selling weapons to Iran as the Iran-Contra weapons for cocaine scandal proved.

Continue with how disingenuous Bu$h claiming the USA seeks democracy in the ME after the CIA removed a democratic elected Mosaddegh in 1953 and installed the Shah, whose SAVAK was responsible for millions of Iranian deaths. If Bu$h Sr. had not described Iran as part of the AXIS of EVIL, then it may have been that Soleimani was the person that mended US-Iranian relations. click here This however was not to happen and another chance to create a working relationship with Iran thwarted by US ineptness.

Soleimani's location was known by IMPOTUS with knowledge he was in Iraq to discuss with its FM the Saudi/Yemen conflict. This droning was an assassination, a War Crime and done to: deflect from tRump's Impeachment and other investigations, Bibi's corruption investigation. Fracked oil must be above $60 a barrel to remain viable. Commander Bone Spurs MacPussy Grabber-s wanted to appear tough to his mentally-challenged base. click here

"Rather difficult to achieve peace when you keep killing each others children. A strong nation doesn't use its power to project itself, only weak nations lash out in hostility." These phrases are needed now more than ever.

Thank you. I agree with almost all of what you said.
