Game’s Not Over Yet!

Preet Bharara talks on his podcast “Stay Tuned” and writes in his new book Doing Justice about principles—truth, fairness, ethics, integrity, equality —that seem quaint and abstract at a time when the president of the United States is a compulsive fabulist, wannabe autocrat, and unindicted co-conspirator in scandal about his hush money payment to a porn star.

Bharara was formerly the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, where he had broad discretion for bringing criminal cases involving financial crimes, terrorism, mafia rings and murders. President Donald Trump held Bharara over from the Obama administration and then abruptly fired him when he stopped answering calls to his personal mobile phone that Bharara considered inappropriate.

Doing Justice, though, is not about Trump and isn’t a self-congratulatory memoir of Bharara’s years as one of the most powerful prosecutors in the country. It’s about those principles—truth, fairness, ethics, integrity, equality—as they presented themselves to him when he was a prosecutor and how he sees them mattering right now in through-the-looking-glass 2019.
