    The Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation might be operating under a cloud of corruption and Americans should be "extremely concerned" – even "scared to death"  – by it, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax TV on Wednesday. "This doesn't come from innuendo or rumor or some nonsense," Kerik told "America Talks Live" host Ric Blackwell. "This is from . . . subpoenas and [reports that there is] some kind of conspiracy within the Bureau and Justice to interfere with the election, and it appears to be the overthrowing of a president.

    As New York City police commissioner, Bernard Kerik was ultimately responsible for the incarceration of many criminals. Now that he has seen the prison system from the inside, having served three years behind bars, he has a new appraisal of the U.S. penal system: "insane." In his first interview since his release from prison, where he served time for tax evasion and lying to federal authorities, Kerik told NBC’s Matt Lauer on the Today show Friday: "No one in the history of our country has ever been in the system with my background.

And will Bernie write a book about how he took all those pounds off?

The sentence is 15 months more than the maximum punishment he could have received under federal guidelines based on the plea deal he negotiated.

    Bernard B. Kerik, a former New York police commissioner who rose to national prominence, was sentenced to four years in prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to eight felony charges, including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Under the terms of a plea agreement reached in November on the eve of his trial, the prosecution and the defense recommended that Judge Stephen C. Robinson sentence Mr. Kerik to 27 to 33 months in prison. But the judge departed from the sentencing recommendations, giving Mr. Kerik a longer sentence. “I think it’s fair to say that with great power...

    Big, bad Bernard Kerik wants to bunk with the regular Joes -- even if they're accused killers, rapists and muggers. The disgraced former city police commissioner yesterday refused to ask to be separated from the general population as he spent his first full day in the Westchester County jail. He's been accused of trying to taint the jury pool in his upcoming federal corruption case. So jail officials made the decision for him -- and hauled him anyway into a segregated wing reserved for cops, judges and other at-risk inmates. Kerik once was also head of the city's jails, and...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge on Thursday removed the lawyer for Bernard Kerik, a former New York police commissioner and protege of Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani who faces federal corruption charges. The ruling stands to postpone the start of Kerik's trial, which could help Guiliani if the potentially negative publicity of a trial is delayed past the upcoming nominating contests. Kerik has 30 days to find a new attorney. The next pre-trial hearing is scheduled for February 6, the day after "Super Tuesday" when more than 20 states will hold primary elections or caucuses. No trial...

    Bernard Kerik's lawyer says federal prosecutors have violated his rights in his corruption case by improperly questioning his former lawyer. Attorney Kenneth Breen asked a judge to consider whether legal action was warranted in light of his claim. Kerik was police commissioner when Rudy Giuliani was mayor and he was recommended to be head of the national Homeland Security Department. He was pleaded not guilty to lying to the White House, filing false income taxes and other charges in a wide-ranging federal indictment. The judge is also considering whether Breen should be disqualified as Kerik's lawyer because he too could...
