Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has remained in the public eye via his Twitter account in the months since Donald Trump suspiciously fired him, but he’s about to take his public presence to a whole new level. Bharara has finally booked a television interview, in which he’s expected to discuss the details of his firing, what he really thinks of Trump, and more.
The first hint of Preet Bharara’s increased profile came this week when he appeared in the audience during the congressional testimony of former FBI Director Jamey Comey, who was also fired by Donald Trump under suspicious circumstances. Bharara didn’t say anything, but the appearance could be taken as a sign of solidarity. Trump fired them both, along with Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and others, as part of his efforts at sabotaging the Trump-Russia investigation.
ABC This Week host George Stephanopoulos posted the following announcement regarding his upcoming TV interview with Preet Bharara, which is now just thirty-six hours away:
