New York Attorney General feels the Trump Effect

UPDATE: He resigned.

"Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in connection the Russia investigation, suggesting where the probe may be headed," MSNBC reported on August 30.

Don't pull on Superman's cape.

"It is early January, and Eric Schneiderman is sitting in his 25th-floor office above Lower Manhattan, doing his best Donald Trump impression, puckering his lips into a duck face, scrunching up his nose and lowering his voice into something that resembles the president’s outer-borough growl," Politico reported in February.

Don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger.

"Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman of New York is moving to change New York state law so that he and other local prosecutors would have the power to bring criminal charges against aides to President Trump who have been pardoned, according to a letter Mr. Schneiderman sent to the governor and state lawmakers on Wednesday," the New York Times reported on April 18.

And you don't mess around with Trump.

While the attorney general of New York was trying to overthrow the president, Schneiderman's past was catching up with him.

"Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse," New Yorker reported.

The report is by Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow. You may recall that Farrow won the Pulitzer for exposing multiple charges of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein, which everyone in Hollywood knew about but no one had the morals to speak out and stop. They were too busy pretending to be shocked by Trump's Billy Bush tape.

"All have been reluctant to speak out, fearing reprisal. But two of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women," Mayer and Farrow reported.

These two seem to have the goods on Schneiderman.

"A third former romantic partner of Schneiderman’s told Manning Barish and Selvaratnam that he also repeatedly subjected her to nonconsensual physical violence, but she told them that she is too frightened of him to come forward. (The New Yorker has independently vetted the accounts that they gave of her allegations.) A fourth woman, an attorney who has held prominent positions in the New York legal community, says that Schneiderman made an advance toward her; when she rebuffed him, he slapped her across the face with such force that it left a mark that lingered the next day. She recalls screaming in surprise and pain, and beginning to cry, and says that she felt frightened. She has asked to remain unidentified, but shared a photograph of the injury with The New Yorker," Mayer and Farrow reported.

They published his response. This is journalism. Both sides get a shot at telling their story.

In a statement, Schneiderman said, "In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross."

What is the role described in the next paragraph?

"Manning Barish says that Schneiderman also took prescription tranquilizers, and often asked her to refill a prescription that she had for Xanax, so that he could reserve 'about half' the pills for himself. (Schneiderman’s spokesperson said that he has 'never commandeered anyone’s medications.') Sometimes in bed, she recalls, he would be 'shaking me and grabbing my face' while demanding that she repeat such things as 'I’m a little whore.' She says that he also told her, 'If you ever left me, I’d kill you,'" the story said.

Is he playing Charles Manson? Ted Bundy?  Richard Speck?

    1. So in addition to being a sadistic pervert, Schneiderman's a racist too!

      Though I guess that means he's just a normal Democrat, since they're the party of racists and perverts.

      This story will soon be dead, as the MSM covers it up. We really do need a non-FakeMedia!

  7. Well, for 50 years democrats (and their propaganda arm in the MSMS) covered for democrats when it came to sexual predation, so why wouldn't they think they could get away with it. In their eagerness to go after Trump they didn't even consider how bad this all would devastate democrat politicians. Oops. More Trump effect.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Maybe Trump was right when he said that nasty thing on the Billy Bush tape, because these women who were Schneiderman's victims never said a word while enduring the abuse. Trump never included beating and choking and three-way sex in his "fantasy." Schneiderman took it a whole lot further. That's Democrat privilege for you. So let's not hear another word from the Dems about how vulgar The Donald is, not when their guys act like savage brutes towards their women.

    1. In your dreams. The president cannot be prosecuted by a state official. In fact, he cannot be prosecuted any Federal official either, as long as he remains in office. Under the Constitution, the power to remove the president rests exclusively with Congress. Until the president is impeached and removed from office he is not subject to indictment, arrest, or prosecution. Them's the facts.

      If Trump knew this guy was sketchy back in 2013, then everyone knew. And yet Cuomo stood by and did nothing.
