Barbara Underwood: What to know about the acting NY attorney general

Barbara Underwood: What to know about the acting NY attorney general

Eric Schneiderman, who was said to be a heavy drinker, is a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement which filed a lawsuit against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Last month, the New York Attorney General's Office launched a fact-finding inquiry into 13 cryptocurrency exchanges.

Ms Selvaratnam also said he threatened to tap her phone among other threats.

While the allegations against Schneiderman are "horrifying and inexcusable", Frosh said that President Trump and his Republican allies are unlikely to use the scandal to tarnish the efforts by several states to fight the president's policies.

Schneiderman was elected to the post in 2010 and re-elected in 2014.

Local leaders had strong words for now former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment and assault. "We taped this segment before the allegations against Eric Schneiderman came to light", it reads, "and we sincerely apologize for characterizing him as a hero when, to so many women, he was the vilest villain".

Mr Schneiderman, 63, stepped down shortly after The New Yorker magazine quoted the women as saying they had been subjected to non-consensual physical violence during romantic relationships or encounters with him. Schneiderman said the company broke NY law by failing to protect employees from "pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation and discrimination". After the magazine article was published, that musical number was altered, exchanging Schneiderman's name for Chuck Schumer's, the Democratic senator from NY.

"I have not assaulted anyone".

Gillibrand, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (a former NY senator) did not respond to a request for comment.

Amazon grows its workforce in BC adding 3000 new jobs
Amazon now employs over 6,000 people across Canada, with 1,000 of them based in Vancouver at the company's Telus Garden location, which opened in 2015.

Schneiderman's stunning and swift collapse, coming just hours after the New Yorker published its story, is a blow to the national Democratic party following the December resignation of Minnesota Sen.

"They were dealing with the attorney general, the top law enforcement", Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday. Or that the hundreds, if not thousands, of pages of legal filings the state of ny has filed in high-profile disputes ranging from Trump's crackdown on sanctuary cities to his ill-conceived travel ban are now good for nothing. "I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross", he said.

Manning Barish said Schneiderman started getting violent a few weeks after they began dating, slapping her one night after an evening out and escalating to choking her.

"Their courageous decision to speak out will help advance this important conversation about the violence and assault that far too many women face in the workplace, in relationships, and in society", Crowley said.

That's why many people were surprised by allegations he slapped, choked and spat on at least four women with whom he was romantically involved.

O'Donnell said the accusations were "horrifying" and didn't "comport with the person I interacted with", though he had sometimes been curious about Schneiderman's succession of girlfriends.

Schneiderman also was trying to build criminal cases against former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn in case the president pardoned them or Robert Mueller's special investigation was halted.

In another twist, Vance's office late Monday announced an investigation into Schneiderman's alleged domestic abuse.
