Join Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney who fought corruption, financial fraud and violent crime, in a series about justice and fairness.
On March 11, 2017 President Donald Trump fired US Attorney Preet Bharara. Preet tells the story in detail for the first time. Then, a conversation with former Secretary of Defense and former CIA Director Leon Panetta about how to clean up a chaotic White House, trade Russian spies, and stand up for what’s right, even if it means defying a president.
What is life like in the Department of Justice under Jeff Sessions? And what does the Trump Administration mean for civil rights in America? Preet talks to his old friend Vanita Gupta, who led the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division under President Obama, about why justice officials are staying, why they’re leaving, and what to make of the NFL controversy.
Preet talks to his old friend Lisa Monaco, who was chief of staff for now-Special Counsel Robert Mueller at the FBI before serving as President Obama’s Advisor on Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. They discuss how Mueller is approaching the investigation, what she learned from Obama, and the hardest thing she ever had to do at the White House.
As the news from the mass shooting in Las Vegas was rolling in Monday morning, Preet sat down with John Miller, Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counter-terrorism of the NYPD as well as a Peabody and Emmy Award-winning journalist. They discuss the role that police can play in advocating for smarter gun laws, how the NYPD responds to mass shootings, and the stories behind Miller's historic interviews with John Gotti and Osama Bin Laden.
Catherine Hoke, Founder and CEO of Defy Ventures, joins Preet for a conversation about the challenges that incarcerated people face when reentering society, the businesses that formerly incarcerated folks have started through her program, and the Shark Tank-like process that gets them there.
Preet talks to Benjamin Wittes of Lawfare about the firing of FBI director James Comey, why President Trump should be impeached, and exactly how, given the chance, Wittes would sidekick Vladimir Putin in the chest.
Days after Vladimir Putin got Bill Browder's US visa revoked and his name placed on Interpol's international watch list, Preet reaches Browder at his office in London. They discuss the massive corruption Browder revealed that led to his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, being tortured and dying in a Russian prison; Putin's influence in America and the structures that can resist him; and Browder's ongoing battle with the man who, as he puts it, "wants to destroy me."

In a special episode, Preet responds to today’s news of the indictments of two Trump campaign officials and, more importantly, the guilty plea — and cooperation — obtained from another. He parses what’s in the documents that were unsealed, explains what we now know, and considers what’s likely to come next in Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation.
