Kellyanne Conway on NY attorney general's resignation: 'Gotcha'

10 May, 2018, 06:42 | Author: Sheila Harris

Schneiderman had investigated a number of Trump business entities - including Trump University - and it's hard to know if the next attorney general will continue watch-dogging the president's businesses so methodically.

In the two days since Schneiderman resigned, the media has produced analyses at breakneck speed.

Just four days before the allegations were made public, Schneiderman sat down for an interview with Alec Baldwin for his WNYC Studios podcast "Here's The Thing".

He also has been a longtime critic of President Donald Trump, and has been part of several efforts to push back against some of his actions in the White House, like the rescinding of protection for immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children. He says Acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood, who he appointed, is competent and a "top quality person" and that the office is not "rudderless". At the State Capitol today, many were stunned at the rapid demise of the once popular Democratic Attorney General, and began maneuvering to name a successor. Yes, his office occasionally played a vital role in spearheading the lawsuits.

Other names mentioned include Congresswoman Kathleen Rice, who narrowly lost the democratic primary for attorney general to Schneiderman in 2010, and former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. "So, while the Trump administration may be chuckling at the downfall of one nemesis, it should understand that Schneiderman will be replaced by another".

The details of a failed police sting against Weinstein and the suggestion by some that Vance's office failed to properly handle the case were the subject of a previous New Yorker article that led to numerous Hollywood actresses coming forward to allege sexual harassment and assault at Weinstein's hands.

The article continued, "The abuse escalated". He seems to have used his feminist-minded political work to advance his own career, to ingratiate himself with the women he would go on to harm, and to cover up his cruelties. "They'd be like, 'We do some insane sh*t, but you're a freak, man!'".

Katha Pollitt, writing in The Nation, was similarly disturbed.

In a statement, James said, "I am honored by the encouragement and support I have received and am considering the best ways to continue serving ny".

Manning Barish said she was involved with Schneiderman from mid-2013 through the end of 2014.

Well before he even announced his candidacy for the country's highest political office, Trump wrote that disgraced former NY politicians Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer were "gone" and that "lightweight" Schneiderman was "worse" than either of them.

"Oppression is oppression - and male supremacists always fear the voices of women".

Seth Barron, another conservative, took a more local angle in City Journal.

But now that the 63-year-old Democrat has been accused of choking, slapping, threatening and otherwise abusing four women during intimate encounters, Bee and her team are attempting to backtrack their love for the pervy pol.
