NY Gov. Cuomo Going Down?

This item has a lot--repeat, a LOT--of implications, nicely drawn out at HotAir.

...Bharara has made his case to a grand jury and been given the green light to take eight top aides and associates of Governor Andrew Cuomo to trial on charges of corruption. (New York Observer)...  Cuomo's Gummint is corrupt?  And the sun rises in the East, right?

The point is that Bharara is a-political.  He prosecutes Bad Guys (and Bad Babes) on both sides of the aisle.  New York State is full of them.  In fact, one of the Bad Babes lives in that State.

...Bharara is the guy who is currently going after Anthony Weiner… an investigation which produced all sorts of interesting information. And in August he announced that he was investigating corruption at the New York offices of the Clinton Foundation

As I said at the time, this isn’t the sort of investigation which was going to be wrapped up in a matter of weeks. These things take time. The FBI may have thrown in the towel on going after Hillary Clinton. Even Donald Trump may be making noises about not needing to “lock her up.” But out there in New York City Preet Bharara is still grinding away at his job. And if he has the Clintons in his sights, don’t expect him to simply go away because the election is over. Preet Bharara is the honey badger of corruption investigations and he is not afraid to do his job....

This may well explain The Donald's decision not to put Hillary in the Graybar Hotel through Sessions.  He won't have to.
