Is the latest news about Preet Bharara more than today’s law school speech ? — At graduation, Bharara urges Pace Law Students to use their law degrees to do things like Fight Against Corruption in Albany
At the same time, are there preparations afoot to Arrest and Charge Another NYS Senator ? — Unconfirmed report that Bharara will be making another move against a New York State Senator — Maybe, as soon as tomorrow
Today at about 5:30 PM, the Wall Street Journal did a video presentation of Preet Bharara’s commencement address at Pace University. Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, urged graduating law students at to fight against corruption in Albany; saying that “... we have corrosive corruption in our state capital” but lawyers can be "solvers of problems" and "voices of progress” and “one lawyer armed with courage and a well-drafted complaint can reverse a long standing government abuse...”

No doubt, when Mr. Bharara said "a well-drafted complaint" he was thinking — "... a well-drafted criminal complaint...."
A DELETED COMMENT ON THIS BLOGAt around the same time as the WSJ posting, somebody posted an un-sourced comment on this blog that hasn’t been verified by any responsible party. According to that comment, the “word on the street” was that Preet Bharara would be “moving in on” a New York State Senator tomorrow.
Clearly, the comment maker wanted the readers of this blog to leap to conclusions that this target might be somebody of special interest to independent Republicans in Brooklyn.
I will try to find out if there is anything that is more substantial than this teaser from a well-known tease.
Until then, we'll just have to sit tight and see what happens next.
