Samantha Bee rips into former NY AG Eric Schneiderman over abuse allegations

Andrew Cuomo appointed a special prosecutor to investigate allegations of assault and abuse made against former state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Now New York's top prosecutor is facing his own investigation.

Schneiderman is accused of abuse by four women.

But this is one state intrusion on New York City home rule that some city politicians don't mind: Council's Women's Caucus took Cuomo's side, and City Councilwoman Carlina Rivera, the caucus's co-chair, asked Vance to drop the fight. Besides choking and slapping the women without their consent, Schneiderman also allegedly threatened them if they attempted to leave him or speak out against him.

Fourth woman: A prominent lawyer, says Mr Schneiderman slapped her with force after she rebuffed his advances.

"This is a man who has staked his entire career, his personal narrative, on being a champion for women publicly". Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as "assault".

State Sen. Catharine Young, R-Olean, and six other female state senators want former state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to face prosecution as well as see his campaign bank account disbursed to help domestic violence victims.

When Schneiderman announced his lawsuit against peaceful pro-life counselors past year, he said, "We are not a nation where you can choose your point of view", and that pro-life Christians "run their mouths" with "unlawful, un-American rhetoric".

With Schneiderman's fall, the coalition of state prosecutors challenging the Trump administration in court lost a high-profile advocate for preserving the energy and environmental policies of the Obama administration.

The pictures are incredibly eerie, as Schneiderman has a big smile on his face and is looking toward the cameras but not directly at them. To serve in any statewide office, including attorney general, you must be at least 30 years old.

The charges filed against the pro-lifers include making death threats, menacing clinic workers, chasing and crowding patients, video recording patients and other tactics.

With Massachusetts' attorney general, Maura Healy, Schneiderman also led the "Exxon Knew" investigation to determine if oil companies committed fraud when they tried to convince the public not to worry about climate change. Instead, they set her up with a hidden video camera to record the sidewalk counselors, showing complicity with fraudulent activity used to entrap the sidewalk counselors.

Cuomo late Tuesday said Nassau District Attorney Madeline Singas will investigate and possibly prosecute "any and all matters concerning the public allegations" against Schneiderman.

"I pointed this out to you on the telephone last night, and you agreed at that time that Mr. Schneiderman's resignation would obviate any conflict for our office", Vance stated in the letter.

Schneiderman denied assaulting anyone or engaging in non-consensual sex - "a line I would not cross", said the divorced father of a daughter.

"Schneiderman, she says, backed her up to the edge of his bed".
