Once deemed elite, U.S. attorney office Manhattan castigated for repeated abuses

The U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan has long been prized as one of the crown jewels of the Justice Department, a place where big Wall Street names are prosecuted and where prosecutors themselves can cement future advancement in politics and law.
But a string of recent rulings has stripped some of the luster off the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, as frustrated judges have accused prosecutors and the FBI agents who worked with them of improper leaking, dishonesty, or failure to disclose evidence of innocence to defendants.

One of the more controversial rulings occurred on the watch of Obama-era U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose office misled the court about FBI leaking in an insider stock case, Just the News recently reported.

But the latest — and among the most severe — such rulings came in the last month, when U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan blasted the prosecutor's office for its conduct in an Iran sanctions case that began under Bharara but mostly occurred under the Trump administration's stewardship of the office starting with a 2018 indictment.
"The manifold problems that have arisen throughout this prosecution — and that may well have gone undetected in countless others — cry out for a coordinated, systemic response from the highest level of leadership within the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York," Nathan wrote in a 34-page order on Sept. 16.

Nathan was so offended that she has ordered the Acting United States Attorney to have all the prosecutors and special prosecutors read her opinion and demanded an investigation by the Department of Justice's Office of Professional Responsibility.

The United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York is the office that the Dems have been using in Hate-Trump lawfare. And Biden is supposedly considering Preet Bharara for Attorney General if he is elected President.

slick willy became PRESIDENT, confiscated FBI files and refused to return them, then completely changed United State Attorneys to political stoogies.  Changed other government entities into political stooges and even made government agencies realize they were go out and get democrats political enemies.  Sorry to bore you with such old news, but even Obama further these 3rd world government abuses of government power demanding after getting re-elected, the same.  As clear and infectious and severe as it has been, virgins wonder what happened to the IRS, FBI, CIA. Justice Department.  Its a mystery,  if you have kept yourself highly ignorant of what has been going on, much of it right out in the open. :yowsa:
