Schneiderman Resigns Hours After Allegations Come Out

16

Eric T. Schneiderman, the New York attorney general who has risen to prominence as an antagonist of the Trump administration, abruptly resigned on Monday night, hours after four women accused him of physically assaulting them in an article published by The New Yorker.

“It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as attorney general for the people of the State of New York,” Mr. Schneiderman said in a statement. “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me.

“While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”

  1. Say it ain’t so eric – say it ain’t so. It’s probably just a right wing conspiracy theory. Something that only people who are backwards enough not to believe in the religion of global warming or the brilliance of the iran deal, could possibly believe this story. Eric schneiderman, hero for the common man, be inappropriate? Impossible.

  2. This Eric guy spent millions of dollars in New York tax payers money in looking to harass President Trump. I recall hearing in the news how he assembled a
    massive staff to look into Trumps New York businesses. Now the creep is gone. Trump should bring charges against him. Let all of Trumps enemies fall to the wayside. One by one. Trump 2020. We Orthodox Jews love Trump.

  3. It’s a known fact that this Eric dog didn’t actively endorse Hillary when she ran for President. To cross a Clinton is a big no no. Now this pig is paying the price. When will you radical leftists learn your lesson. NEVER cross a Clinton! Play by the rules.

  4. Now he can run asa Republican

    Isnt assaulting women a requriment to join their party?

    Look at the difference Democrats get rid of assaulters Republicans elect them president

    and people still support the GOP

    • This was all calculated. Now Mr. Schneiderman will immediately join Muellers team. The only qualification to join, is to HATE Trump and Republicans with a special vengeance.
