Trump foe Preet Bharara suffers setback as NY politician’s conviction overturned

by
September 27, 2017

1506463762210A federal appeals court on Tuesday overturned the conviction of former New York state Senate leader Dean Skelos, dealing another blow to ex-U.S. attorney Preet Bharara’s prosecutorial record.

Bharara was fired by President Trump earlier this year and has since emerged as a prominent Trump critic.

During his time in office, he launched a high-profile anti-corruption campaign targeting Skelos and others.

But the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals threw out the conviction of Skelos and his son, granting new trials. The court found jurors in the case were wrongly instructed, in light of a Supreme Court decision following their 2015 convictions. The high court ruling narrowed the definition of a corrupt act.

    What used to be symbolic of something wonderful in the wording of “from sea to shining sea” is now reality of the corruption by politicians and particularly those with democrat affiliation, the corruption is from sea (west coast) to sea.(east coast)

    Preet Bharara suffers from the common mental defect that all liberals do. It’s called “liberalism” used as a noun. We all know the definition.

  • Askjrsk says:

    Hope a massive clean up can happen in New York. Perhaps Trumps children will work to Make New York Safe Again.

      Rudy Giuliani did a hell of a job cleaning up NYC. Why wasn’t he put in the governors mansion?

      1. Askjrsk says:

        Giuliani did a great job cleaning up what was a very unsafe NYC. We need more like him. Did he want the governorship? He certainly deserved it.

    Not only is New York State one of the most corrupt states in the US, including Cuomo, Schneiderman, and the state courts, but so is the 2nd Circuit. The judiciary is the most corrupt branch of our Government. With too few exceptions to matter, the judiciary is corrupt beyond repair.

    1. gvette says:

      You are correct. The 2nd Circuit putting criminals back on the street.
      Sheldon Silver should have been exacted. If you remember back a bit, Ir was Andy that started the commission. Then, as Bharara was working his way to Andy himself, that was when he ended the commission.

      1. Name says:

        Andy, Andy, Disgraziato, Stronzo di Prima Classe! Come fai? Li compri tutti quanti, compri anche la loro anima, vero?

    2. Askjrsk says:

      Hillary lives in New York. This explains why.

      1. Name says:

        You are right. I didn’t think of it that way. Whatever the Clintons touch becomes a criminal enterprise.

    3. maxx says:

      You are totally correct about the judiciary and it is at all levels. Liberal activist judges have been voted into office by liberal communist people through their indoctrination by the democrat communist party and the media propagandists. Taking control of the judiciary is one of the communist agenda planks and as we see it is even more important than members in Congress.

    Skelkos should be joined by our despicable governor, Adolf Cuomo, in the clink. Albany has the most corrupt politicians in the country. We need to get rid of all of them. We the People need to take back this government and get it out of everybody’s business. And send these corruptocrats to maximum security lockups so they can mingle with their “constituents”.

      Start with Cuomo and Schneiderman.

      1. maxx says:

        But the majority of people in NY state keep voting them in. Time to take a different tactic to get rid of these “bottom feeders”. Elections are not working so come up with another way.

        1. Name says:

          Sanctuary cities or states … their goal is to steal elections through voter fraud, without which they would lose.

          1. goldie says:

            That is the only feasible explanation for pelosi and waters.
