Eric Schneiderman hires top defense attorney Isabelle Kirshner

Under Schneiderman, New York sued the Trump administration about a dozen times over energy and environmental policy, targeting not just the Environmental Protection Agency but also the Army Corps of Engineers, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the departments of Energy and the Interior.

Some possibilities? Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, who Cuomo has actively encouraged to run for another office, which would open up a spot on his re-election ticket.

So what happened, who will take over the role, and what sort of impact will this have on pending investigations - especially those involving President Donald Trump?

Presidential counsellor Kellyanne Conway posted a tweet from Mr Schneiderman in which he says he will continue to remind Mr Trump that no-one is above the law.

"What that tells me as a former investigator is that they had a lot more information on him than we do", said Giglio, a former deputy inspector general in the Attorney General's Office. Contradicting his accusers, he characterized his behavior as "role-playing and other consensual sexual activity".

As of Wednesday, Bee's November interview on YouTube with Schneiderman had been retitled "Former AG Tricks Sam Into Thinking He Was Decent" and the description contained an apology to viewers about characterizing him positively before Full Frontal's team learned the former NY A.G.

"Any conviction, or any charge for Mr. Schneiderman, is going to matter to him", said Julie Rendelman, an attorney and former prosecutor. "In one case, a woman wasn't even in a relationship at all with him, Alisyn". Just hours after the report came out Monday night, Schneiderman resigned as the state's top law enforcement official but said he strongly contested the allegations. Weinstein denies any non-consensual sex.

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".

"If someone feels unsafe, that's their perception of the situation that they're not safe, and numerous allegations are very serious things that put a lot of fear into the alleged survivors of the abuse", Goldsmith said. Cuomo brought up Vance's lack of response to investigate abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein despite one of the victim's having a recorded apology from Weinstein for the incident.

Underwood has worked in the District Attorneys' offices of three New York City counties and was the counsel and chief assistant in the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney's office.

Then voters will get their chance in November to vote for a new attorney general for a full, four-year term.

"He slapped me across the face hard, twice", she told The New Yorker, which reported that her face was still red the following day. His father, Irving, was the treasurer for NARAL Pro-Choice New York.

Senate Deputy Majority Leader John DeFrancisco, R-Syracuse, who recently suspended his campaign for the Republican nomination for governor, has indicated he is interested in running for attorney general.
