Trump invited Bharara to Trump Tower in New York a few weeks after the election, and Bharara said Trump asked him to stay on at the time. Washington (CNN) Former US attorney Preet Bharara on Sunday talked about the three times President Donald Trump called him, and the one time he didn’t answer. “No one knows right now whether there is a provable case of obstruction,” Bharara said. Bharara was a US attorney until March, when Trump fired him after Bharara refused to resign along with a raft of other Obama-era Justice Department attorneys. The sudden showdown came after several interactions with Trump during his transition to the presidency, when Bharara said he had two “unusual phone calls” with him.
The first contact between Mr. Trump and Mr. Bharara took place on Nov. 30, on the 26th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan. Because Mr. Trump was not yet president, Mr. Bharara said he believed it was fine to call him. Mr. Bharara said the contacts with Mr. Trump made him increasingly uncomfortable because they broke with longstanding Justice Department rules on communicating with the White House. Mr. Trump, then the president-elect, praised his work and asked for him to stay on, Mr. Bharara said. Mr. Comey said he believed that Mr. Trump, who requested his loyalty during the meal, was trying to “create some sort of patronage relationship.”Mr. Bharara said he had a similar feeling about his conversations with Mr. Trump.
