Is this the reason New York US Attorney Preet Bharara was asked to resign?

This narrative has only been reported by one little-known source, and I would normally wait until it was reported elsewhere before sharing it, but it is intriguing enough to put it up for speculation, I think. If Mr. Bharara is innocent of involvement, then I apologize in advance.

Before the inauguration, Donald Trump and Preet Bharara met and an agreement was struck that would keep US Attorney Bharara in his current position in New York under a new Trump administration.

New York Senator Charles Schumer was instrumental in getting Bharara appointed to that position and in return was asked from time to time to do favors for the senator and his allies. Up until recently, President Trump had no idea what was really going on. Once President Trump’s staff understood the quid pro quo, they had no choice but to ask for Bharara’s resignation.

In 2015, Puerto Rico defaulted on $70 billion in municipal bonds. Those involved panicked. There was ample evidence that the issuing agencies were technically bankrupt when they issued the bonds and that they purchased fraudulent credit ratings from Moody’s Fitch and S&P. Wall Street’s biggest banks then knowingly sold junk bonds to innocent investors, labeling them as safe investments. Everyone made a ton of money, except the innocent investors.

The evidence of this massive criminal act was overwhelming. The lawsuits and complaints to the FBI and SEC were streaming in. Dozens of Wall Street executives could go to prison. This was serious.

The Wall Street executives went to Senator Schumer and asked for two things: that no criminal investigations or prosecutions be considered and that he somehow limit the bondholders’ rights to keep them from suing.

By this time, all congressmen and senators were made fully aware of the potential fraud that had taken place in Puerto Rico. That didn’t stop Senator Schumer; he put together a small team consisting of himself, Elizabeth Warren, Senator Blumenthal and Senator Feinstein. In January 2016, they submitted a rider to the energy bill that unbelievably would prevent the innocent bondholders from suing. All four politicians were quickly rewarded and the Wall Street contributions flooded in.

Then an understanding was stuck with US Attorney Bharara that investigations would be sidetracked and no prosecutions would take place. As pressure was building with the public discovery of hundreds of new felonies related to the issuance of this $70 billion in bonds, the DOJ continued to ignore the evidence and sidetrack all efforts by their field personnel to prosecute. Bharara was paying back his mentor in spades…

    Sounds like democrats as usual. All the pieces fit nicely. Time and a President TrumpJustice Department will tell.

    How dems thought that Preet could remain when everyone else had to go without raising suspicions is curious. Of course this was done when Schumer, Warren, Blumenthal and Feinstein thought that Trump was willing to get in the pigpen with them and play in their filth. Too bad for them President Trump is a bit of a germ-o-phob.

    This explains the Cummings comment/rumor-mongering re: Bharara was investigating Pres Trump at time of Bharara’s firing.
    This resident cynic says Pres Trump alread knew this and was just waiting for the best timing.

    Goodwin’s Post article is particularly illuminating. Thanks.

    Hopefully Trump’s DOJ will investigate, and a former US Attorney should have his Law card lifted. In addition, exposed these Senators, here’s a news flash: Democrats are for Wall Street, and received xxx dollars for this treachery……..RICO, RICO, RICO……
