U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on Thursday did not rule out investigating the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption itself and whether there was any interference from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office in directing subpoenas.

The New York Times reported this morning that Bharara’s office was taking possession of records generated by the commission, which Cuomo created last year as a means to investigate legislative wrongdoing.

But Cuomo announced this month he was disbanding the panel following a budget agreement that led to new bribery and fraud penalties, as well as a system for public financing the state comptroller’s election this year.

Bharara, however, believes the commission is ending its work prematurely.

“From where I sit, when you begin something, you finish, particularly when you tell people you’re going to finish it,” Bharara told WNYC’s Brian Lehrer in a radio interview.

Despite the flurry of subpoenas and state money spent on the panel, Bharara said there’s more that needs to be done to fight corruption.

“I think the plain facts are it was disbanded before it’s time,” he said. “Nine months may be the proper gestational period for a child, but in our experience it’s not enough for a proper corruption probe to mature.”

The commission had subpoenaed state lawmakers for more information on their outside income, as well as for documents on spending by housekeeping committees of the legislative conferences.

The commission, however, had initially not sent subpoenas to politically sensitive entities for Cuomo, including the business-backed Committee to Save New York, which spent millions on his behalf supporting his 2011 and 2012 fiscal agenda.

A subpoena would eventually be sent to the state Democratic Committee, which has raised millions in soft money and aired TV ads supporting Cuomo.

Asked whether he was looking into wrongdoing by Cuomo’s office in the Moreland proceedings, Bharara demurred.

“I’m not going to prer-judge what we are looking at, what we will be investigating and where the facts will lead,” he said.

Pressed on what that meant, Bharara said, “What I’m saying is we’re going to look at the documents, we’re going to see what the facts are and if there are questions that are appropriate to ask as the public knows by know there are aggressive and strong willed people in my office who can ask those questions.”

Cuomo has maintained the commission was always due to conclude its work once an ethics agreement had been reached. At the same time, Cuomo’s office has said the commission was always meant to investigate legislative corruption following a string of high-profile arrests of lawmakers in 2013.
