Preet Bharara on Trump: His Goal Is Not To Have Power, It’s To Be The Most Talked About Person

I chatted with the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara on Instagram Live. We discussed President Trump's failing election legal strategy with Rudy Giuliani. “I think it backfired on him a bit,” Preet said. “I think with some people the fact he loses again and again by judges who were appointed by him and other Republicans makes it hard to make the argument that he’s been robbed.”
Preet also talked about what he thinks Trump’s ultimate goal is. “Trump’s goal is not to have the most power or to be president,” he said. “His goal was to be the most talked about person on the planet and he achieved that.”

  • Great video. I didn't notice how old it was until 3/4's of the way through. Now I am thinking..."Wow. SO MUCH has happened since November!!!" News and current event videos become ancient history every 24 hours as a result of the Trump Administration. I am completely exhausted from the past four years of the Trump daily drama. It's as if the pandemic was put there just so I could sit in front of the computer for a whole year to watch the soap opera unfold moment by moment. 22 hours and 39 minutes left......(crossing my fingers and toes).

I don't know why people in government are trying to reason with T*** regarding unlawful conduct when he does the classic blaming others game from the beginning of his running just like a narcissists does.

  • There was proof that this whole election stealing had nothing to do with the truth. He got his base to donate to his cause for 'legal fees', but in the small print the loophole was that trump could use the money towards paying off his failed re-election campaign. He owes millions and was desperate to raise capital. His group is a mixed bag too. You literally got delusional patriots who think trump is fighting for something they have longed for. They are lambs going to slaughter. Then you have the people who are hyped up on the energy to belong to something, have purpose, consumed with conspiracy theories, and desperately want to live out their GI Joe militia man dreams. Then the more nefarious of them all are the true insurrectionists who seek to bring Democracy to its knees; that which is not really the goals of the other groups. But they are all mixed together and one can't tell the difference one from the other. People have been in fear far too long over Muslims and Mexicans; and so consumed they never saw this white lead home grown radicalization of people attacking the foundation of our country.

  • I don't understand why trump isn't put on blast when he threatens people over twitter and FB. I would be letting him know what he is doing is grounds for criminal investigation and tag the FBI. I mean he openly threatened witnesses for his impeachment trial. This isn't just a trump thing. This should be for any sitting president. If trump can do all this then it sets the groundwork for a more diabolical, smarter president. People need to wake up. We are heading down a terrible road for all Americans. The reason we had become such a great nation was our ability to protect right and to resolve things peacefully. You leave the US and you have no rights. A laughing point is that Kim Jong Um stated that the US is now considered a dangerous country and needs to be disarmed. Thanks Qanon. Thanks trumpsters.

  • In fact, “Lock her Up” didn’t actually start in 2016 with Trump - it wasn’t even his idea. Under the guidance of Paul Manafort, he was just repeating verbatim the campaign strategy that had been used against Yulia Tymoshenko in Ukraine. Disgusting puppet.

  • The problem with Giuliani is that he has BS’D a lot of people for a long time and these people are witnessing what has always been there in the Giuliani character. To think or believe Giuliani has ever been ethical or moral is a self deception. MANY INNOCENT MEN AND WOMEN IN THE NEW YORK FIRE DEPARTMENT AND POLICE DEPARTMENT DIED ON SEPTEMBER 11 BECUSE THEY DIDN’T HAVE THE MUCH NEEDED UP TO DATE PHONES,OR RADIOS TO COMMUNICATE. GIULIANI HAD REJECTED PUTTING IN THE BUDGET THE MUCH NEEDED NEW COMMUNICATION RADIOS. Giuliani had his mistress living in the Mayor’s mansion where his wife also lived. His fame after September 11 was another one of those political deceptions, political lies that have occurred many many times similar to the Reagan myth. People didn’t buy it because when Giuliani ran for president he was not taken seriously or given the time of day. His run was short lived and Giuliani revealed how stupid and idiotic he has always been when he ran for president. OUR COUNTRY PUTS ALOT OF IDIOTS AND IMBECILES IN GOVERNMENT OR CROWNS THEM WITH FAME AND FORTUNE BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE AND HAVE AN IMMENSE ABILITY TO BULLSHIT THEIR OWN.

He’s a psychopathic narcissist and he behaves just as I thought he would after he was even further spoiled by the attention a president gets. That’s why all the rallies: the attention and the fun of gaslighting people into finally giving up their self-direction. They follow Trump like brainless, loyal, windup toys...and he will smash them if he suspects the slightest hint disloyalty.

Of course you were good on "The Today Show" and, "CNN," but here you have freedom to dig into current issues with your scholared opinion and perspective. Listening to your educated and expert guests, the issues you probe together, the journalistic ethics and standards you hold make your programming an "absolute must." And, as always, you do with such grace and poise. And, yes!: I "SUBSCRIBED!" Also, found former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, to be exceeding coherent--and, it's like fresh, clean water to hear someone talk about our U.S. Constitution with knowledge, comprehension, passion, and, adherence to the truth contained therein. Thank you both.

  • The religious leaders had a lot to with the mayhem that has been confusing people, it’s a great shame that the religious leaders get involved in dirty politics and influence people, America isn’t a theocracy but in many ways the politics of America is influenced by religious ideology and the last time that religion and power Got mixed was in the rise of kingdoms in ancient European History which gave the kings the absolute power and what’s happening in America is tribalism and a yearning for having a king who is beyond the Usual restrictions of the 21st century laws, the absolute monarchs had a godlike personality that the uneducated people of the dark ages kind of worshiped and the religious leaders of the dark ages had so much to do with the mass hypnosis then and the same spirit has made a come back to America and a few other countries that have the two essential ingredient very much active and potent and once the minds of certain types of people is swayed in a woo-woo direction then things can be very difficult to get back on the right track because reasoning won’t work and the movement has already been fuelled by the woo-woo effect which can’t be traced back and identified.

  • They should stop interviewing President Trump. He will again say he had won in his dreams. This will incide a couple of MAGA supporters. At entrance to the capitol buildings, there was more video footage of the rioters. As seen on few TV channels, rioters were scaling outside walls of Capitol buildings and climbing up capitol buildings like spiderman. Hundreds of MAGA supporters entered. No one was sure if the rioters were armed with handguns. Two armed cops were pinned to the ground and their shirts crumpled up as mobs rushed an entrance doorway. Another armed cop briefly retreated up the stairs as shown in CNN video, and at the landing stood his ground, drawing his 10 inch baton / stick at the staircase, warning trespassers if anyone trespasses any further by entering the Capitol building further, he will hit out at the next next few rioters with his stick. Lots of files of offices and paper files of various committees in the house or senate offices were torn up and looted. Rioters took selfies of themselves in the ransacked offices amidst destroyed paper files of various offices and offices of various house relation committees and Senate relation committee. Some offices of Houses members and few senators were also ransacked. Some say they have soft copies of destroyed papers and hard copies of files and papers to be signed by lawmakers.
