Preet Bharara, the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, appeared on Bill Maher’s HBO’s show on Friday night to talk about Trump, treason, and Rudy Giuliani.
Maher has long believed that Trump is leading a slow-moving coup, while Bharara urged calm.
Bharara softly bashed Guiliani, who held the same job as he did decades before.
“Giliani is supposed to be a professional lawyer,” Bharara said. “He was a trial lawyer by training and understood integrity, in speaking about cases in court or out of court… in recent times, he’s taken on an aura of someone who doesn’t recognize that the truth is.”
Bharara also likes Chris Wray at the FBI.
“And by the way, I think the person he got to run the FBI is excellent,” he said. “I think he accidentally got a good person to run the FBI.”
Both men agreed the so-called Deep State was the best hope the U.S. has right now.
“God bless the Deep state,” said Bharara.
Maher said he thinks everyone is too calm, while Bharara
“There’s a saying, if you’re going for the king, you’ve to kill the king,” Bharara said.
“You mean that metaphorically, you mean that metaphorically,” Maher said.
