Marc Kasowitz, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer in the Russia investigation, has boasted to friends and colleagues that he played a central role in the firing of Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, according to four people familiar with the conversations.
Kasowitz told Trump, “This guy is going to get you,” according to a person familiar with Kasowitz’s account.
I know nothing about this person but to goad someone as ambitious and qualified as Preet seems a risk only a true asshole would take. There's a reason Trump feared him and down the line Kasowitz may feel the Preet Heat himself.
"This guy is going to get you..." speaks volumes about all the illegal and/or criminal activities by DJT and his "personal" lawyer tribune knows how the orange oaf operates (having prostituted himself as the demented demon's attorney in myriad lawsuits most of which settled out of court over decades). Kasowitz is NOT licensed to practice outside New York and should be disbarred. He has no authority to be "counseling" the WH staff regarding their seeking legal representation. How parasitic barbarians like K are allowed to practice (ethics???) is mind boggling. Not unlike his puppet master, Kasowitz consistently oversteps his bounds and has no self-respect, integrity, or veracity...and they toot their own horns at every opportunity.
And I agree with Shandaken....Preet is by far a major legal force to contend with and if one is "smart," they will not bark up that tree.
Unfortunately, the entire Department of Justice is not – as it should be – a subsidiary of the Supreme Court, whose Judges and Attorneys serve for fixed periods of time (10, 12 or 15 years, depending upon their position) after being nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate, and who can be removed from office early only by a 2/3 (or maybe 3/5) vote of the Senate, NOT by the President.
It's too late to correct this situation in regards to the current crisis, and fixing it would require a major amend- ment to the Constitution. Holding a Constitutional Convention in this day and age could be dangerous in the extreme . . .
