Scandal at 1600: The US Attorneys Affair

Tomorrow at 12:20 in JG 105, join ACS for Scandal at 1600: The US Attorneys Affair. Preet Bharara, chief counsel to Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and a former assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, will discuss his work for the Judiciary Committee. Bharara is heading the investigation into the Bush administrations' firing of eight U.S Attorneys, allegedly for political purposes, and the resulting fallout. A CLS alum described as sort of the bad boy of the Law Review by a former classmate, Bharara worked in private practice for several years before serving as an assistant US Attorney from 2000 to 2005 where he prosecuted various mafia families.
