Preet Bharara, an Obama appointee, made national headlines in 2017 when he was fired by the Trump Administration despite earlier signals that the president would keep Bharara on as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. But Bharara was already known in the legal world as an effective prosecutor, especially in cases of white collar crimes and public corruption. In his new book, "Doing Justice," Bharara shares his experiences of the U.S. justice system, what it's like being banned from Russia and why it's so hard to convict top executives. We’ll talk to Bharara about his book, the Mueller report, and what could be next for President Trump in the Southern District of New York.
