Trump Lashes Out At FBI Sunday Morning But Preet Bharara Just Put Him In His Place

Former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara, who was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year, responded to Trump’s Sunday morning lashing out at Comey and the FBI in general. Trump said that “Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past,” as he whined this morning out of fear that the FBI’s raid on his lawyer’s office will be what takes him down.

Bharara disputed Trump’s claim that the raid violated attorney-client privilege, “I don’t think that Donald Trump has a decent understanding of what the attorney-client privilege is and how it can be pierced.” Bharara was nominated by President Obama to serve as the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York in 2009 and served nearly eight years in the position. You can watch him discuss this issue in the footage below.

“Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. All lawyers are deflated and concerned!” Trump said Sunday morning.

The only lawyers who are worried about what happened to Cohen are ones that are involved in illegal acitivity. Like Bhara said, “I think that you have to trust that that office is doing things by the book, that it’s crossing every ‘t’ and dotting every ‘i.’”” Cohen was not raided for no reason, they already know he is a criminal. Trump is probably panicking because he really believed attorney-client privilege is bullet proof and discussed all matters of illegal activity with Cohen.
