NY Attorney General resigns amid abuse allegations

In 1985 Gov. Mario Cuomo called on Hynes to investigate the death of an African American teenager who was chased by a mob of white teens in Howard Beach. Kirsten Gillibrand, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie.

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.

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. "Drunk with power", and then another mocking Schneiderman for once saying that "No one is above the law, and I'll continue to remind President Trump and his administration of that fact everyday". "She's an extraordinarily competent woman, so I have no fear in the immediate she will provide good stewardship in the office", Cuomo said Tuesday.

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 women strongly rejected the Democratic politician's explanation that any abuse was the result of consensual, intimate "role-playing". "In one case, a woman wasn't even in a relationship at all with him, Alisyn".

Schneiderman has been praised and endorsed by pro-abortion groups such as NARAL and he took his abortion support to the attorney general's office, often speaking out on the right of women to control their own bodies. Weinstein denies any non-consensual sex.

However, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance had said on Tuesday that he wanted to pursue a criminal probe of Schneiderman, a Manhattan resident, whose alleged crimes had taken place at Schneiderman's apartment.

Instead, Kratsios, a deputy assistant to the president for technology policy, detailed the administration's AI strategy Thursday. Get Data Sheet , Fortune's technology newsletter. "This is not a call for a swarm of new laws and regulations", Krzanich said.

Cuomo also directed Singas to investigate whether Schneiderman may have used his staff and office resources to "facilitate alleged abusive liaisons referenced in the article".

He is now facing a criminal investigation by a special prosecutor appointed by the governor. Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler, a Republican elected to a second term in November, said Tuesday he had turned down requests to consider running for attorney general.

Cuomo signed the 2015 order following a series of controversial fatal encounters between police and unarmed civilians in NY and across the nation.

"All of a sudden, he just slapped me, open-handed and with great force, across the face, landing the blow directly onto my ear", Manning Barish told the magazine.

The chief of detectives for the New York Police Department, Dermot Shea, said investigators would interview the women in detail, though he couldn't say whether any charges would result. She has served as the state solicitor general since 2007. "Therefore, he should be prosecuted, and the roughly $8.5 million in his campaign account should be donated to programs that help the victims of domestic violence".
