In 2009, President Barack Obama nominated Bharara to be U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.
Before being appointed by Obama in 2009, Bharara rose to prominence working for the New York senator Chuck Schumer, now the minority leader in the Senate. Bharara served as chief counsel to Schumer during the latter years of George W Bush’s presidency, and led the investigation into an abrupt dismissals of US attorneys in 2006.
Russian spy Evgeny Buryakov deported from United States Released April 2017 and deported.
Court documents filed by the U.S. Department of Justice describe how Buryakov operated under "non-official cover" as a high-ranking employee in the Manhattan office of the Russian-owned Vnesheconombank (VEB) while he passed information to Igor Sporyshev and Victor Podobnyy, two Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) agents tasked with gathering "economic intelligence" about the United States.
Carter Page, who cooperated with the FBI's investigation of Buryakov, told ABC News that the group's attempts were unsuccessful, and any information he passed to SVR agents was "immaterial."
Buryakov was arrested on January 26, 2015, and charged of "conspiracy to act in the United States as an agent of a foreign government. He pled guilty as part of a plea agreement and received a 30-month prison sentence and a $100,000 fine. Sporyshev and Podobnyy, however, fled the country and returned to Russia before they could be arrested.
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whose office handled the case, said the case serves as a reminder that foreign agents with questionable intentions still seek to operate on U.S. soil.
"More than two decades after the end of the Cold War, Russian spies still seek to operate in our midst under the cover of secrecy," said Bharara in 2016. "But in New York, thanks to the work of the FBI and the prosecutors in my office, attempts to conduct unlawful espionage will not be overlooked. They will be investigated and prosecuted."
Remember when? Page also floated the idea that Trump travel to Russia in his place to give an Obama-like foreign speech.
Sounds like an entrapment attempt. This has to be McStain related.
Both Cox and Page involved with No Name, and both are CFR members. https://www.timesunion.com/7day-state/article/N-Y-GOP-s-Cox-introduced-Carter-Page-to-Trump-12553410.php
And ironically, given Page’s work on McCain’s failed 2008 presidential bid — he was named by Cox to the New York Leadership Team in Jan. 2008 — the Arizona Republican obtained the same dossier in November and passed it to then-FBI Director James Comey.
Page took two trips to Russia in July and December 2016, and met Russian government officials. He had been picked up on an unrelated FBI wiretap in 2013 of Russian officials who saw Page as a useful dupe.
And now we see claims that the FBI was just protecting Democracy from the former McStain campaigner, CFR member, "useful dupe".
Cox said he viewed Page as knowledgeable on Russia and foreign policy matters in general (especially after working with the FBI!) who was going out on his own after having been with the investment firm Merrill Lynch, which collapsed in 2008 at the onset of the great recession.
But for Cox, referring Page to the Trump campaign manager at time in late 2015, Corey Lewandowski, was a courtesy extended to someone he knew from the 2008 presidential campaign of Sen. John McCain of Arizona in New York.
Trivia: Guess who else worked at Merrill Lynch way back in the day? "Howie" Rubin, Soros Fund Management's own NYC Penthouse rapist Portfolio Manager was fired from there in 1987. (The guy who liked to electrocute Instagram models...hmmmm, this gets curiouser and curiouser, did Mariah Sunshine Coogan know about Instagram models being tortured? ). https://www.yourtango.com/2017308160/details-howie-rubin-sex-trafficking-nyc-penthouse-brutally-models
IMPORTANT: I AM NOT implying or hinting that Carter Page is a deviant violent sex criminal predator thief like Soros own "Howie" Rubin.
Bear, Stearns & Company said yesterday that it had hired Howard A. Rubin, the mortgage securities trader who was dismissed by Merrill Lynch & Company earlier this year after Merrill experienced a $377 million trading loss.
Mr. Rubin, 36 years old, was head of Merrill's mortgage securities trading desk until the record loss was discovered last March. Merrill officials had accused Mr. Rubin of contributing to the losses by making unauthorized trades.
After the losses, Merrill reorganized all of its trading operations to try to put in place greater controls over the risks its traders were taking.
John Sites, the managing director of Bear, Stearns's mortgage securities division, confirmed yesterday that Mr. Rubin would be working as one of 14 mortgage securities traders at his firm, several rungs down from his previous job.
Mr. Sites would say only that Mr. Rubin had met all Bear, Stearns's requirements before being offered a job, but his formal hiring indicated that he would probably not be sued by Merrill Lynch for the earlier losses, as Merrill had said it was considering.
Mr. Sites said he did not know when Mr. Rubin would begin work.
