NY attorney general resigns over abuse claims

NY attorney general resigns over abuse claims

Could be appealing to state Assembly Democrats as a candidate to fill the attorney general's position temporarily.

Schneiderman denied the reports but still resigned.

There is the obvious example of the President himself, who bragged on tape about grabbing women's genitals - which is not mere "groping", but a crime of sexual assault - and who has been accused of assault or harassment by more than a dozen women. Alicandro has criticized Schneiderman's attacks on the White House as attention-seeking gamesmanship.

Schneiderman was expected to secure the Democratic nomination for his re-election run later this month.

Thanks for being with us, Jane.

Reacting to initial reports of a wiretap, former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a member of Trump's newly reconstituted legal team, called on Atty. I could not remain silent and encourage other women to be brave for me.

Another of Schneiderman's victims didn't complain because "he's a good attorney general, he's doing good things".

MAYER: They basically describe a pattern of abuse in which he subjected them to nonconsensual violence of various sorts. The women say they did not consent, and that many of the assaults happened outside the bedroom.

Schneiderman was also widely viewed as the backup for special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russia. Al Franken was accused of sexual harassment.

Alexandra Farbenblum, Kaminsky's director of communications, said "the senator is focused on his work on behalf on Long Islanders".

Schneiderman, a Harvard-educated lawyer, has been New York state's attorney general since late 2010.

Speaking Tuesday, both Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the women should have their day in court.

"The Democratic Party is not bound by the legislative process", Cuomo said.

"There can be no suggestion of any possibility of the reality or appearance of any conflict or anything less than a full, complete and unbiased investigation".

MARTIN: Oh, right, and these are women you point out in the piece, they weren't talking. "If they refused, they were threatened with insults, their careers were threatened, they were threatened with physical intimidation and violence". And served Cuomo in various capacities when he was elected Governor. I don't think I'll probably share it with the MORNING viewers - listeners. "All these offices, it's about something much bigger than any one AG".

MARTIN: And death threats - death threats. Someone picked by the legislature could be tainted, considering the general bad odor in Albany, and have a hard time winning a primary in September.

MAYER: And she said, if there's ever a sentence that summed him up, it would be that.

"She's an extraordinarily competent woman, so I have no fear in the immediate. End of story." Others expressed hope that it would increase public understanding of BDSM and help highlight the distinction between its traditions and non-consensual violence. She would not mention specific names, but said Schneiderman's successor "should be a woman". "In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me", he said in a statement. They knew what was happening. And they gradually came forward.

New York's attorney general is resigning amid allegations he physically abused four women with whom he was romantically involved or had romantic interactions.
