New Top Manhattan Fed, Preet Bharara, Ready to Rock

Bharara Confirmed As U.S. Attorney
The New York Law Journal by Mark Hamblett - News In Brief - August 11, 2009

Preetinder S. Bharara was confirmed Friday by the U.S. Senate as the next U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Mr. Bharara, 40, is a veteran of the Southern District who worked as chief counsel to U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., and headed the Senate Judiciary Committee investigation into whether the firings of U.S. attorneys in several districts by the Bush administration were politically motivated. Mr. Bharara served as a prosecutor in the Southern District from 2000 to 2005, working in the general crimes, narcotics and organized crime/terrorism units. He follows in the footsteps of Michael L. Garcia, who served in the post from 2005 until Dec. 1, 2008, and veteran prosecutor Lev Dassin, who has served as acting U.S. attorney since December. The Senate went into recess last week without taking action on President Obama's nomination of Loretta Lynch, a partner at Hogan & Hartson, as the next U.S. attorney in the Eastern District, where she served as the district's top prosecutor from 1999 to 2001. — Mark Hamblett

Here's The New York Times on Bharara:


For Manhattan’s Next U.S. Attorney, Politics and Prosecution Don’t Mix

He worked for one of the most partisan Democratic senators in Washington, and a few years ago helped to uncover political maneuverings by the Justice Department in the administration of President George W. Bush. But perhaps the most telling aspect about Preet Bharara, the next United States attorney in Manhattan, may be how he managed to win the trust and respect of even those who might have been his natural opponents. Mr. Bharara, who served as the chief counsel to Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York, played a major role in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation into the firings of United States attorneys around the country. As he took sworn testimony from witnesses, handled the issuance of subpoenas and negotiated with administration officials over the production of documents and other materials, he drew praise for his evenhanded approach. He even won over one fired prosecutor, David C. Iglesias of New Mexico, a Republican who said he had wavered over whether to testify voluntarily before the panel, fearing that it would degenerate into a “partisan circus.” But after their conversations, Mr. Iglesias said, he concluded that Mr. Bharara was approaching the investigation like a prosecutor, not a politician. “It gave me a lot of assurance," Mr. Iglesias said. “He completely understood what was at stake here.” A key factor, Mr. Iglesias added, was that Mr. Bharara had formerly worked as a prosecutor in the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan, an office with a reputation for independence and nonpartisanship.

Now, Mr. Bharara, 40, will be asked to carry on that tradition. On Friday, the Senate confirmed him to be the next United States attorney for the Southern District of New York. Although he declined to comment for this article, he spoke last year about his role in the Senate inquiry and his feelings that a line between federal prosecutors and politics had been crossed. “You’re talking about the Department of Justice,” he said, “that employs 100,000 people, that used to be led by Bobby Kennedy, that a lot of people in America look to.” IN his new post, Mr. Bharara will oversee more than 200 lawyers who handle some of the country’s most prominent cases, like the prosecution of Bernard L. Madoff for his multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme.

As a naturalized American citizen from India, Mr. Bharara also brings a diversity of background to the post And while recent United States attorneys in Manhattan have come directly from prosecutors’ jobs, Mr. Bharara’s background on Capitol Hill will serve him well, said Daniel C. Richman, a law professor at Columbia University and a former Southern District prosecutor. “He contributes things that we’ve not seen before,” Professor Richman said. “He’s thought hard about what a U.S. attorney’s place should be within a broader federal enforcement system and the train wrecks that can develop when unthinking or ill-thinking bureaucrats tamper with that. Preetinder S. Bharara was born in Ferozepur, India, and he was an infant when his parents immigrated to the United States in 1970. He grew up in Monmouth County, N.J., and graduated from Harvard in 1990 and Columbia Law School in 1993. That summer, he worked for several weeks as a volunteer in Mark Green’s campaign for public advocate, occasionally driving the candidate to campaign events. He has reflected on his roots and the improbable journey his family took to get to this country. His father, a Sikh, and his mother, who was Hindu, were born in what is now Pakistan, before India and Pakistan were separate countries. In the violent migration that occurred after the 1947 partition, his father and mother both moved to the Indian side, with their families losing property and most of their possessions, Mr. Bharara has said.

His wife’s father, a Muslim, also moved, from the Indian side into Pakistan, also losing his home “and much, much more,” as Mr. Bharara put it. And his wife’s mother was born in Palestine, after her father, who was Jewish, escaped with his family from Nazi Germany. “Four different families, practicing four different faiths — all compelled to flee a half century ago because of their religion,” Mr. Bharara said in a speech to the South Asian Bar Association of New York in 2007. “It also means,” he joked, “that even when my wife fasts for Yom Kippur, and my father-in-law fasts for Ramadan, I get to stuff my face with samosas all day.” In 2000, after about six years in private practice, Mr. Bharara became a Southern District prosecutor, first under Mary Jo White, and later under James B. Comey. For five years, he prosecuted organized crime, narcotics and securities fraud, among other crimes. One major case, with dozens of defendants, involved Chinese organized crime. He was a hard worker who had a self-deprecating wit and stayed cool under pressure, according to former associates. “Preet was one of those guys in the office who everyone wanted to try a case with,” said Christopher P. Conniff, a prosecutor at the time.

IN 2005, Mr. Bharara became Senator Schumer’s chief counsel. Former colleagues described him as a skilled staff member in a political caldron where Democrats were often negotiating among themselves as much as they were with Republicans. “He does have an incredible manner and ability to work with others,” said the New Jersey attorney general, Anne Milgram, who in 2005 served as counsel to Jon S. Corzine, then a United States senator, and got to know Mr. Bharara through their work on judiciary issues. “He never carries himself like he’s the smartest guy in the room, even though he often is,” she added. Mr. Bharara said in a speech in 2007, “Party affiliation can’t tell you whether to indict a case, whether to plead it out, or how to try it. His approach has allowed him to remain close to people with whom he otherwise disagrees sharply. One friend from college, Viet D. Dinh, who served as an assistant attorney general in the George W. Bush administration and now teaches law at Georgetown University, said, “To this day I cannot find a single big political philosophical issue upon which Preet and I agree, but I can’t imagine two other people trusting each other implicitly the way Preet and I do.”

During the Judiciary Committee’s investigation into the prosecutor firings, Mr. Bharara was aided by his background as a federal prosecutor in Manhattan. “To the extent that Preet was the driving force of the investigation, it was conducted in a completely fair, thorough and professional manner,” said Michael M. Purpura, a former Southern District colleague who was a senior lawyer in the Bush Justice Department and later an associate White House counsel. The investigation, along with a separate inquiry by the House Judiciary Committee, culminated in the 2007 resignation of Attorney GeneralAlberto R. Gonzales.Mr. Bharara, in a bar association talk last year, said that the investigation’s focus had been not only on whether there had been violations of law, but also on whether “the great traditions of the department were violated. He added, “The more that was uncovered, the more it seemed clear that there was politicization,” not only in how United States attorneys were being fired or hired, but even at the lowest level — “the line level,” as he put it — “where there should never be any politics at all.”

not sure what to think yet but being compared to Michael Garcia is no prize at all. the opposite. the guy talked up a big storm, lead on a lot of people on, and was a big dud in the end when it comes to corruption. hope this new guy is a bit better but not too hopeful.

Well we know that Mr. Preetinder Bharara is married to a very nice Jewish girl - so at least we know who he is NOT going to go after.

Everyone is praying for the "Great Punjabi Brown Hope" in Preetinder Bharara to clean up the rampant and disgusting corruption in New York.

But everyone hopes that he is not what many people allege - just another Rudy Giuliani clone whom the powerful and wealthy New York Jews paid for and used to go after his Sicilian brethren, the Italian Mafia, which to be quite honest, was the only equalizing force and checks and balances against unbridled and out of control Jewish Mob power and corruption in New York.

Giuliani essentially got rid of the "competition" for the New York Jewish Mafia by destroying and dismantling the Italian Mafia in the 1990s using his US Attorney Office.

Too bad Rudy Giuliani didn't find out he was being used all along until he lost all of his political campaigns and found his closest buddies thrown in jail - hopefully Preet Bharara will figure out early on what we already know - that he is Chuck Schumer's lapdog, and he should stop kissing Schumer's boots and getting his coffee, and looking the other way when Schumer's friends and buddies commit crimes. Hopefully Mr. Bharara will actually DO SOMETHING about the massive corruption in New York, instead of publicly and loudly going after one Indian Hedge Fund owner with his first case, when there are in fact thousands of far worse scoundrels with the same crooked business model of the Jewish persuasion.

Only time will ultimately tell if he is an Uncle Tom, like Rudolph Giuliani, or not.

This is so true - if Preetinder Bharara arrests even one Jew in New York, Chuck Schumer will have him fired as US Attorney, and his Jewish wife will divorce him, take all his money, and take away his 2 kids. He is so owned.

Come on get over it - everyone KNOWS that the New York FBI and NYPD, as well as every other Law Enforcement agency in New York, is completely OWNED by the Jewish Community.

The New York FBI can't even take a dump without pre-authorized Jewish approval.

Does anyone remember the Hasidic riots in Brooklyn back in April 2005 when the NYPD tried to make a few lawful arrests?

The NYPD Commissioner had to get down on knee and apologize to the Hasidic community like a little bitch.

Let's face it - game over - the Jews own EVERYTHING - even the New York Law Enforcement Agencies, both State and Federal.

They are absolutely unstoppable and untouchable - no one can arrest or prosecute them unless they give them permission first (ie, they gave the New York FBI permission to arrest Bernard Madoff, because he only screwed over his fellow Jews).
