Declarations: The Coverage Opinions Interview With Preet Bharara
Fired By Trump, The One-Time Most Powerful Prosecutor In America Talks About Doing Justice

In 2017, Preet Bharara was fired by President Donald Trump, under curious circumstance, as the United States Attorney for the Southern District on New York. Bharara was in Philadelphia recently to promote his New York Times best-selling book. I sat down with him in the shadow of Independence Hall. Over the course of nearly an hour, the one-time most powerful prosecutor in America covered a lot of ground, including his time on the job, the "Trump effect" and how not to get hired at the SDNY.
