Hey, Trump: Look Who’s Attending Comey Testimony Before Congress
Earlier this year, Donald Trump fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara just as he was gearing up to prosecute the case filed against the fraudulent Trump University. But Bharara is not out of the spotlight.
This morning, MSNBC’s Greta Van Susteren tweeted a photo of Preet Bharara at the Senate Intelligence Committee’s hearing where Comey will speak about his meetings with Trump.

Bharara built a reputation in New York by going after big banks and Wall Street.
He’s prosecuted nearly 100 Wall Street executives and brought legal challenge to the four largest banks in the U.S. He also closed a multi-billion dollar hedge fund as part of an insider trading settlement.

The Intelligence panel will question Comey about the circumstances surrounding his dismissal last month.
Comey’s opening statement, released Wednesday, confirms reports that the president asked him to drop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and repeatedly sought to influence the FBI’s investigation into Russian election meddling.
