Schneiderman called #MeToo movement 'extraordinary' in interview days before resignation

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

- May, 2018, resignation statement after The New Yorker reported allegations by four women who say they were slapped and choked by Schneiderman.

"Any conviction, or any charge for Mr. Schneiderman, is going to matter to him", said Julie Rendelman, an attorney and former prosecutor.

Schneiderman had been a vocal public supporter of the #MeToo movement in the past and was endorsed by the National Organization for Women's NY branch during the 2010 election.

Greitens is accused of tying up a woman he was having an affair with, ripping off her clothes, blindfolding her, taking photos of her without her consent, and then threatening to make the photos public if the woman spoke about the incident.

"I'm just sorry it took us so long in NY state to do this ..." From that perspective, the ontological necessity of denying Trump a second term outweighs another assault on the country's most important glass ceiling; let Nikki Haley or (shudder) Joni Ernst become the first woman to serve as president and defang electoral sexism once and for all. The statute of limitations is two years to bring charges for such crimes.

Vekselberg, one of the richest men in Russia, has close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, is under USA sanctions (as is his company, Renova Group), has reportedly been interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators, reportedly met with Cohen at Trump's inauguration, and attended the December 2015 dinner in Moscow where Putin was seated next to Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Q. Will the four women - only two of whom have been publicly identified - testify either at trial or a grand jury about their interactions with Schneiderman?

Experts say this pattern of behavior in domestic violence is common as the abuser uses power to try to control a victim, starting slowly and escalating with time.

"People think it's so simple to leave".

"The Senate can not turn a blind eye to an act of domestic violence", declared Schneiderman, who went on to co-author a law that made choking someone a crime of its own. "Let's start holding the men accountable and stop saying, 'Why don't the women walk away?'"

Gov. Andrew Cuomo appointed Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas the special prosecutor tasked with investigating domestic abuse allegations against disgraced New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who resigned Tuesday. All three are Democrats. Both moves were highly unusual, and some critics have accused Cuomo of meddling in the work of independent prosecutors for political gain.

Cuomo said he appointed the special prosecutor in part to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest with the attorney general's office, which is now investigating the actions of the Manhattan district attorney's office and the New York Police Department in their handling of the Weinstein sex allegations. "But more important, and beyond politics, it violated the separation of powers that is meant to promote confidence in the independence of our criminal justice system".

Dennis C. Vacco, a former state attorney general, said that state law empowers a governor to appoint a special prosecutor at their discretion when there may be a potential conflict of interest involving a local district attorney.

David says Vance's actions caused mistrust in women's organizations and calls for his "disqualification" continue. "That distrust is your creation, not ours".

The acting attorney general will be Barbara Underwood, the current state solicitor general.

Trump University. Mr Schneiderman's NY office sued on behalf of 600 students who said they were conned by what was promoted by Donald Trump as a real estate investment school but which the students said offered no real education.

Singas, who previously ran the special victims bureau in the Nassau District Attorney's Office, declined requests for an interview Wednesday.
