REPORT: Top Obama attorney slams Comey for ‘prosecutorial slander’ of Hillary Clinton

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has sharply criticized former FBI Director James Comey for speaking “disparagingly and at length” about then-candidate Hillary Clinton in his notorious 2016 press conference announcing she would not be prosecuted.

Comey, who was later fired by President Trump, failed in his duty “to keep your mouth shut,” Bharara writes in his forthcoming memoir “Doing Justice: A Prosecutor’s Thoughts on Crime, Punishment, and the Rule of Law.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The book, due to be published next month and a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Examiner, contains a chapter on the dilemma prosecutors face when they do not have enough evidence to charge a suspect. They must, in such cases, “walk away,” Bharara writes.

Bharara was appointed by President Barack Obama to be U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in 2009. Trump fired him two months after he was inaugurated in 2017.
