Eric Schneiderman abuse allegations: Manhattan DA is investigating claims

NEW YORK -- The Manhattan District Attorney's office is investigating allegations of violence against women by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who resigned just hours after accounts of abuse by four women. It was a swift and stunning fall for a Democrat who held himself out as a champion of women and a liberal foil to President Trump and who pledged to use his office to hold others accountable for abusing their power. 

The women described being slapped and choked, verbally abused and threatened by Schneiderman. Some also described him as a heavy drinker.

The abuse often happened during what were supposed to be romantic encounters, but the women said the violence was not consensual.

Schneiderman, 63, implied in a statement that his conduct was either welcomed by the women, or was not as they described.

"In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross," he said.

Danny Frost, a spokesman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., said in a statement late Monday that prosecutors would look into the claims.

It's an unusual twist: Schneiderman's office had been tasked with investigating the Manhattan District Attorney's office over its handling of a 2015 sex assault probe involving Harvey Weinstein that resulted in no criminal charges.

The NYPD has told CBS News that they have no complaints on file. They said if they receive complaints of a crime, it will investigate them thoroughly.

The state's Solicitor General, Barbara Underwood, will serve as acting Attorney General. She has a long history of legal work including serving in the Eastern District of New York and in the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens district attorney offices.

All liberal "men" are pansy feminists.

In the wake of his swift resignation, here are five past moments that prompted many to deem Schneiderman a textbook definition of a hypocrite:   

January 2010

As a New York state senator, Schneiderman led the push to oust Hiram Monserrate, a fellow Democrat convicted of misdemeanor assault against his girlfriend. Schneiderman served as the chair of a special committee which ultimately recommended to censure or expel Monserrate, noting in the final report:

"The Select Committee finds that the nature and seriousness of Senator Monserrate's conduct, as demonstrated by the surveillance video and the other unrebutted evidence outlined in this Report, showed a reckless disregard for Ms. Giraldo's well-being and for the severity of her injury."  

March 2010

Schneiderman -- still a New York state senator -- served as the lead sponsor for legislation that made "intentional strangulation and suffocation into unconsciousness a violent felony." As Schneiderman held an Albany, New York, news conference announcing his support for the bill, domestic violence victims stood alongside him.

"Intentional strangulation is one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence, but it's not a crime in New York State," the press release reads, in part. "This legislation changes that."

In the New Yorker investigation, two former girlfriends of Schneiderman's allege that he himself choked them. "You cannot be a champion of women when you are hitting them and choking them in bed, and saying to them, 'You're a f***ing w****,'" one former girlfriend, Michelle Manning Barish, said.

October 2017

In his role as New York's top legal officer, Schneiderman spoke out forcefully against President Trump and used his office to launch numerous legal challenges. Schneiderman's role as a Trump administration foil would also boost his own political profile.

In one tweet, linked to a now-defunct account, Schneiderman wrote: "No one is above the law, and I'll continue to remind President Trump and his administration of that fact everyday."

February 2018

Schneiderman filed a civil rights lawsuit against the Weinstein Company for "egregious violations of New York's civil rights, human rights and business laws." Additionally, the state attorney general's office launched an investigation into Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., examining Vance's decision not to prosecute Harvey Weinstein.

"Our investigation... has uncovered a pervasive pattern of sexual harassment, intimidation, discrimination and abuse at the Weinstein Company," Schneiderman said, outlining the findings at a news conference. "Women were coerced into facilitating Harvey Weinstein's misconduct, sometimes they were targets themselves. If they refused, they were threatened with insults, their careers were threatened, they were threatened with physical intimidation and violence."

April 2018

As reporters from the New York Times and the New Yorker shared the Pulitzer Prize for public service for their dogged reporting on Harvey Weinstein and the predations of other powerful men, Schneiderman chimed in on Twitter, lauding the award's recipients and the "brave women" who spoke to them about the "sexual harassment they endured at the hands of powerful men."

The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow was among the Pulitzer winners; he co-aut****d Monday's report on Schneiderman.

Gifted: Many to deem Schneiderman a textbook definition of a hypocrite:

Hit the Nail on the Head  !!!  Champion of Hypocrite's = Liberal Progressive Democrats holding power over others... Does not surprise me, simply Typical.

Dem Slogan: All you Little People, Do as I Say, Not as I Do....Plus, What I say does not apply to me...Wink Wink... (Spitzer & Schneiderman, Weiner, Clinton)
