Preet Bharara to host podcast

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara will host a new podcast called "Stay Tuned with Preet."

Bharara, who is joining his younger brother's media firm, said in a statement that he has been blessed throughout his life with "many dream jobs," according to Cafe.

"During 17 years in public service, I worked for and with people I not only respected, but also loved like family, which is the rarest kind of professional jackpot," he said in the statement.

"Today I feel lucky and blessed once more because I am partnering with actual family. I am beyond thrilled to join my brother Vinit’s media start-up company Some Spider Studios as an adviser, stakeholder and content producer."
 
Bharara, who was fired by President Trump earlier this year, said he is excited about the chance to insert his voice into debates regarding justice and fairness.
 
"It is an opportunity at this extraordinary moment in history to add my voice to both classic and current-day debates about justice and fairness in the law, government and society. It is a natural extension of everything that has led me to this point," he said in the statement.
 
"Second, it is a chance to speak with considerable editorial space and freedom, with the benefit of a platform that permits more than 140 characters at at time."
 
Bharara served as the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York for nearly eight years before he was fired along with other Obama administration holdovers last March.
 
The ousted attorney general said earlier this month he thinks there is "absolutely evidence" to start an obstruction of justice case against Trump. He also said there is a lot to be "frightened" and "outraged" about.
