Obama Nominates Preet Bharara as U.S. Attorney

WASHINGTON, DC, May 15, 2009

NRI, Preet Bharara, 40, punjab born, graduated from Harvard College (1990) and Columbia Law School (1993) was named U.S. Attorney, Southern District of New York by President Obama. Along with him other five nominated were, Tristram Coffin, Jenny Durkan, Paul Fishman, John Paul Kacavas and Joyce Vance.

President Obama said:

This group of men and women have distinguished themselves as fair, tenacious and respected attorneys throughout their careers in both public and private service.

They will serve their country with distinction as US Attorneys and it is my honor to nominate them for these esteemed positions.

Preet Bharara is Chief Counsel for Senator Schumer (D-NY) and

From 2005 to 2009 served as Staff Director of the Subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts. During his tenure, he helped lead the Senate Judiciary Committee investigation into the firing of eight U.S. attorneys.

From 2000 to 2005, Mr. Bharara served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, working in the General Crimes, Narcotics, and Organized Crime/Terrorism Units.

From 1993 to 2000, he worked in private practice as a litigation associate - at Swidler Berlin Shereff Friedman in New York

From 1996 to 2000 and at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in New York from 1993 to 1996.

Mr. Bharara was named 2007 South Asian Lawyer of the Year by the North American South Asian Bar Association.

He was born in Punjab, India and moved to US with his parents in 1970. He became a U.S. citizen in 1980. He was brought up in Monmouth County, New Jersey.

Bharara's past as a line prosecutor in one of the country's most prominent districts, the Southern District of New York, has given him both credibility and insight in a probe that has sought to discover whether Gonzales and other top officials fired prosecutors for political reasons and then consciously tried to install replacements with the goal of circumventing the Senate confirmation process.

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) recommended in February that Bharara be appointed. He's a reasonable SDNY AUSA who we hope to talk some sense into," Gonzales' then-chief of staff, D. Kyle Sampson, wrote in a Jan. 25 e-mail to White House staffer Jennifer Brosnahan.

Bharara has served as Schumer’s chief counsel on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee since 2005. He oversaw the congressional investigation into the Bush administration’s firings of eight U.S. attorneys in 2006, which led to the resignation of U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. Prior to that, Bharara was an assistant U.S. attorney in Manhattan for five years, where he brought criminal cases against Italian-American mobsters and Asian gangs in New York City.
