Preet Bharara Blasts “Ignorant A**hole” Doug Collins

Anyone who watched the House impeachment inquiry hearings know that  Doug Collins is fully on team Trump. And it follows that Trump’s recent military action that killed Qasem Soleimani has the Georgia congressman’s full support.

On Wednesday, Collins appeared on Lou Dobbs’ Fox News show and claimed that Democrats mourn the deaths of terrorists. This drew the ire of former United States Attorney Preet Bharara who referred to the Georgia lawmaker as an “ignorant a**hole.”

While discussing the Soleimani operation, Dobbs said, “The Democrats are, tomorrow, talking about constraining authorities as the commander-in-chief, vis-a-vis Iraq. How venal, how vapid can one party become?”

Collins answered, “They’re in love with terrorists. We see that. They mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani.”

These comments enraged the former United States Attorney. Bharara made his reputation, in part, by prosecuting terrorists in New York City courts.

The former judge tweeted, “I happen to be a Democrat and I prosecuted terrorists for living. Sent many to prison for life. I don’t know what Doug Collins has ever done to for America except preen and sound stupid.”

Bharara followed that tweet up with a promise. Who is running against this craven un-American ignorant a**hole named Doug Collins,” he asked. “I will max out to you tomorrow. I hope you all join me.”

At least one of the candidates running against Collins in Georgia’s 9th District is Devin Pandy. Pandy may see an uptick in donations today.
