According to a spokeswoman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, "a number of the assertions" made by the convicted insider trader in a recent profile for which he cooperated were "inaccurate." Whether they're referring to everything he said or to a) Raj's claim that he was offered a plea deal to wear a wire b) his claim that the day he was arrested, Bharara commented in his ear, “Your wife doesn’t seem so upset. Because she’s going to spend all your money" c) the claim that he was "on an exercise bike" when they busted into his apartment or d) some combination thereof, it wasn't made clear.
