Preet Bharara powerfully narrates his own story. Hearing it in his voice makes it all the more powerful. It is a human story, a story that can be listened to and enjoyed without taking notes. He speaks in every day English. It is an elegant speech. I find it thrilling that it is like listening to a soliloquy. I keep wanting to speak up and often do. Yes, I have interrupted Preet Bharara.
This is not just the story of his year in and out of office. This is his story, not the story of Barack Obama and Donald Trump. It is a story about who we are and who we should be. It is also about the real world -- it is about integrity and leadership. The meaning of truth is under fire: "The creeping contempt for truth" is terrifying.
The Southern District of New York makes me think of Tim Russert saying: 'Florida, Florida, Florida.' At some point the entire drama will end up playing out in the center of the world, not Florida this time, but the Southern District of New York.
