Cuomo appoints special prosecutor to investigate Schneiderman

  • Eric Schneiderman is one of several prominent men in the legal world to step down in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations

"While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office", Schneiderman said in a statement, "they will effectively prevent me from leading the office's work at this critical time".

"Protecting New Yorkers from domestic violence - and the housing and job discrimination that victims often face in the wake of such abuse, is a key part to stopping the cycle of violence in our state and our nation".

The Constitution grants the president broad powers to issue pardons.

"He started calling me his "brown slave" and demanding that I repeat that I was 'his property, '" she said, pushing back against the notion that what happened was "sexual play acting".

And he has also raised concerns about shutting down the Mueller investigation by his repeated criticism of Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Mr Schneiderman became attorney general in 2010 and had meant to run for re-election to the post this year.

Barbara D. Underwood was appointed New York Solicitor General in January 2007.

Schneiderman abruptly resigned May 7 just three hours after the New Yorker magazine published a story saying he had physically assaulted four women with whom he had sexual relationships. They sought medical attention after the assaults, but none reported the incidents to the police. Another woman, a lawyer, said she was slapped violently across the face.

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




Mr. Schneiderman attributed the allegations to consensual "role-playing".

Schneiderman is accorded a presumption of innocence in the eyes of the law. It was his first public outing since his resignation.

"You'd think that Cy would welcome it. being relieved of the implication that somehow his decision, no matter how fair and balanced, was going to be attacked as retribution by the Schneiderman supporters", Vacco said.

Cuomo, Vance, Nassau County DA Madeline Singas and her Suffolk counterpart, Tim Sini, will put on a show of unity over who gets to try to nail Schneiderman during a news conference at 2 p.m. Thursday at Cuomo's Manhattan office. "In addition, any recipient of his campaign funds should donate those monies to domestic violence causes so that some good may come from these abhorrent and indefensible acts".

"Pursuant to the governor's executive order, we will vigorously investigate the allegations for which jurisdiction has been granted", Singas' office said in a statement.

New candid photos of former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman leaving his apartment are incredibly disturbing.

"We have never seen anything as despicable as what we've seen here", Schneiderman declared.

It's also possible that Schneiderman's replacement will be an improvement - more willing to investigate corrupt state lawmakers and crack down on corrupt Wall Street banks than Schneiderman ultimately proved to be.

"Confronted with the reality of a conflict, we took action to ensure both the integrity of the investigation and the public's confidence in the process", Davis said. Primary and general elections for the position will be held this year. She says: "This was under no circumstances a sex game gone wrong".
