Why would a State AG Preet Bharara publicly defy the AG Jeff Sessions? Let’s just say the NY Mayoral race is in Nov.
Rumors are now circulating Preet Bharara will use his newly found superstardom as the “man who defied Trump, Sessions,” as a way to hold public office. The New York Mayoral race is coming up in November, so if he wants to run for that seat, he had better get moving.
Bharara has been claiming Trump said he could stay on and do his work in New York. Little did Trump know Bharara’s relationship with Schumer and that could have been the downfall.

Almost immediately after former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara was fired on Saturday, rumors began swirling in political circles that Bharara’s high-profile exit — forcing the Trump administration to fire him instead of complying with their request to offer his resignation — was a way of positioning himself to run for political office.
“I did not resign. Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life,” Bharara said on Twitter Saturday afternoon.
Shortly after Bharara’s firing, The New York Daily News’ Kenneth Lovvett wrote: “Bharara has long been speculated about as a potential future candidate for something,” adding: “Bharara has long denied an interest in running for public office, but few in New York’s political circles actually believe that.”
NBC Nightly News writer Brad Jaffy suggested Preet’s dramatic exit was “the potential opening salvo in a Bharara campaign,” possibly for mayor of New York City. Preet’s office currently has an open investigation into current NYC mayor Bill de Blasio.
What can @PreetBharara do now? There is a mayor's race coming up not to mention a governor's election race later.

"I was fired by Trump" will be a good campaign slogan when Preet runs for something eventually

I don’t now this guy from Adam, but I am sure his feelings were hurt when he got the call and sitting around his thinktank, they came up with a strategy to use this firing and gain public sentiment to run for office.
What do you think of this strategy? Does it make sense? Will he go after Trump and Sessions?
