Fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said on Sunday that before being fired by Donald Trump, the president attempted to “cultivate” a relationship with him. But after that meeting, Trump called Bharara several times in a manner that seemed similar to interactions fired FBI director James Comey testified about on Thursday. “To this day I have no idea why I was fired,” Bharara added. Bharara also told Stephanopoulos he thinks “there’s absolutely evidence to begin a case” against President Trump for obstruction of justice. “The number of times President Obama called me in seven and a half years is zero,” Bharara said.

Still, Bharara has said he was puzzled because Trump indicated he would keep him on in November during a meeting at Trump Tower. Comey testified before Congress last week that Trump told him he hoped the FBI would drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
