U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara has come to be known as a crusader prosecutor, and the name is well deserved. In the years since he’s taken on the position, he has brought diplomats, wall street executives and state politicians alike to justice. Bharara is responsible for having prosecuted the well-known Albany corruption cases OF former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and former New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos. In this Metrofocus exclusive interview, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara takes Contributor Casey Seiler to the frontlines of his fight against what he has dubbed Albany’s “Cauldron of Corruption.”
