76. So you don't like his clientele. So what?

According to your source, he's not the only Senator's counsel to get a USA spot--

"Theres a long list of former Senate lawyers who have moved to the Justice Department. Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, was previously chief counsel to Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Last year, Michael Zubrensky, a lawyer for Sen. Richard Dubin (D-Ill.), left to work in DOJs Office of Legal Policy."

Not for anything, but the guy was a Law Review editor and a Truman Scholar. He's no dummy. You may not like his clients, but then again, your personal likes and dislikes aren't part of this.

It's like arguing that if a criminal defense attorney defends someone objectionable, that disqualifies them from future office. I find it baffling that a law professor would take such a narrow approach to the practice of law.
