NY attorney general resigns after women abuse report

Double Standard? Planned Parenthood Slams Kellyanne Conway for Calling Out Schneiderman

Eric Schneiderman, New York State Attorney General, has resigned from his position overnight amid allegations of violence against at least 4 women during his tenure.

"In my view, both New York's speaker and governor will ensure that NY will not miss a beat with the selection of a dynamic new attorney general who will continue to hold President Trump and his allies accountable for the injustices they cause", said Charlie King, a top Cuomo adviser and former state party executive director. His resignation came three hours after the magazine broke its story.

Following the report, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on Schneiderman to resign and called for an investigation.

"Given the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article, I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve". (Never mind that Schneiderman previously dragged his feet on the investigation of Trump University - something that, if it had been settled sooner, potentially could have stopped the Trump candidacy in its tracks.) Top lawyers from the private sector and from the USA attorney's office came to work for him. "Our office has never been stronger, and this extraordinarily talented, dedicated, and tireless team of public servants will ensure that our work continues without interruption". I sprang up, but at this point there was very little room between the bed and him.

I was deeply troubled tonight to learn of the disturbing allegations made against Eric Schneiderman, and I support his decision to resign from office.

Besides, 12 civilians sustained injuries in the clashes between protesters and security forces near the gunfight site. The gunfight started after the security forces were carrying out combing and search operation in the area.

The announcement came hours after The New Yorker published the accounts of four women, who accused the Democrat of physical violence.

Many New York City politicians have released statements regarding Schneiderman's resignation. Weinstein denies any non-consensual sex. I saw on Indeed.com that New York State is looking for a new Attorney General. "I have not assaulted anyone".

Schneiderman, 63, implied in a statement that his conduct was either welcomed by the women, or was not as they described. Schneiderman told the New Yorker, "In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity". On Twitter, after the story was published, Manning Barish said, "After the most hard month of my life-I spoke up".

Schneiderman, a Democrat, tweeted a statement on Monday evening, writing that nonconsensual sex "is a line I would not cross".

His representatives also sent a statement from his ex-wife, Jennifer Cunningham, who said, "I've known Eric for almost 35 years as a husband, father and friend. I could not leave my sisters who had been harmed, hanging, discredited when I knew the truth". She was reappointed to the post in 2011 after Schneiderman was elected attorney general. Cuomo surely has an opinion, and the prospect of off-loading his lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul, in the job and replacing her on the ticket with someone better able to bring the fight to Nixon may be tempting. "She will provide good stewardship for the office and she's a total professional", he said. Underwood, 73, is a former Yale Law School professor who once worked as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and served as acting USA solicitor general from 1998 to 2001. Schneiderman's office has taken the lead on dozens of lawsuits and other legal actions against Trump's climate and other environmental policies - and a variety of other issues, including health care, immigration and abortion rights. She has been the state's Solitictor General since 2007.
