Cramer called Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, the most feared prosecutor of our time.
“He has prosecuted 71 insider trading cases and won 65 of them, with the other six pending — terrific record,” he said. “He’s done it by using wire taps and building complex cases with informants who are eager to help him in order to spend less time in jail for their sins.”
In a conversation with Cramer at CNBC’s Delivering Alpha conference, Bharara showed himself to be “deadly serious about leveling the playing field, and he’s still shocked that miscreants actually think they can get away with the crimes they commit.”
The interviewee showed himself to be personable, funny and sharp.
