Investigations opened into ex-AG of NY

Ronan Farrow who with The New Yorker's Jane Mayer co-wrote the story centered on accounts from four accusers said he had examined

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas will face many legal, political and logistical obstacles as she investigates allegations that former Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman physically abused four women dating back to 2013, experts said Tuesday. Hours after the story broke that four women had accused him of nonconsensual sexual physical violence, Schneiderman, 63, resigned from his post. Although Schneiderman helped lead the resistance against President Trump's policies and fraudulent universities, the disgraced attorney general has ironically fallen faster than notorious film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who was targeted by Schneiderman's office.

He characterized Cuomo's actions in the Weinstein allegations as possibly politically motivated and "an unwarranted intrusion by an elected executive into a charging decision by an independent prosecutor".

Vekselberg, one of the richest men in Russia, has close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, is under US sanctions (as is his company, Renova Group), has reportedly been interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators, reportedly met with Cohen at Trump's inauguration, and attended the December 2015 dinner in Moscow where Putin was seated next to Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn. "The victims deserve nothing less".

Speaker Carl Heastie, a Democrat, said a committee will be named to start screening candidates who have expressed interest in the job, Giglio said.

What is so confounding to Giglio is that Schneiderman embraced the #MeToo movement and ordered an investigation into accusations against Harvey Weinstein as more women came forward a year ago to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

James O'Neill, the New York City police commissioner, said the department's chief of detectives had spoken Tuesday morning with Vance about the "very serious allegations" against Schneiderman and was comfortable working with that office despite concerns raised by Cuomo.

"These women should have their day in court", Cuomo said.

Gavin Patterson , the chief executive of BT offered a predictably upbeat assessment of the changes. The firm will hire about 6,000 employees to "support network deployment and customer service".

"I have no idea whether or not that is true", he continued.

"Protecting all Americans from harm, regardless of their relationship to their abuser or their gender", he added, "is and will remain one of the most important aspects of our ongoing pursuit of equal justice under law".

That resulted in a spitting match between Cuomo and Vance, who argued that he had jurisdiction over the case. "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 Constitution grants the president broad powers to issue pardons.

"Confronted with the reality of a conflict, we took action to ensure both the integrity of the investigation and the public's confidence in the process", Davis said. Ossorio asked. "So we put everything into the small number of men who do?"

Jennifer Cunningham, Mr Schneiderman's ex-wife, released a statement on Monday saying: "I've known Eric for almost 35 years as a husband, father, and friend".

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". As the AG's office is still investigating Vance over the Weinstein case, Davis said it was "frankly absurd" to think the Manhattan DA's office could investigate that same office the way the special counsel would.
