US Attorney Preet Bharara of the southern district Thursday did not rule out investigating whether Gov. Cuomo and his aides improperly intervened with the investigations undertaken by the governor's anti-corruption commission.

"We're going to look at the documents, we're going to see what the facts are, and if there are questions that are appropriate to ask, as I think the public knows by now, there are strong-willed and aggressive--but fair--people in my office who will ask those questions," Bharara said during an appearance Thursday morning on WNYC public radio's "The Brian Lehrer Show."

This US Attorney will do what the boss (Obama/Holder) tells him. Just another political prosecutor.

Zero is a threat to this country, but he is and always has been the biggest single threat to Demwit incumbents. Apparently they’re not familiar with little historical tidbits, like the time the Estates General met the King of France’s demand for the power to set taxes (the only power that the EG had that was worth anything) and then weren’t called again for hundreds of years; or Stalin’s massive show trials in which he used his strongest rivals to purge each other until only one was left, who was then purged.

Thanks neverdem.
