Posted on 05/14/2018 1:04:07 AM PDT by Enterprise
Now-former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's serial and often violent mistreatment of women chronicled on Monday at The New Yorker is yet another example of scandalous behavior which was widely known among leaders in both the Democratic Party and the media elites that somehow never surfaced in public for years (a few of many additional examples would include former Today Show host Matt Lauer, former PBS/CBS newsman Charlie Rose, and retired NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw).

"Schneiderman's abusive actions may have influenced his priorities as a prosecutor, causing him to decide to stay uninvolved in efforts to prosecute corrupt Empire State politicians because doing so might cause them to go public with the grisly accusations about his personal life."
Dems: Do as I say, not as I do.
Now excuse me while I hop on my private jet and go to that crucial climate change conference on the French Riviera.
What did Cuomo, Schumer and Alec Baldwin know of this and when? They sure sung his praises at his swearing in ceremony in 2011 =>

Corrupt and compromised
Oh yeah, s serial abuser and mega hypocrite as well
These power mad jerks must be dealt with harshly, punitively, without exception or hesitation
They’re like chihuahuas... they’ll nip but when it comes to a real fight, they fold.
Like Schneiderman did. He resigned in a heartbeat.
Wow, the system rightfully caused my former Congressman Tim Murphy PA-18 to resign for a transgression much less severe than this guy.
A dollar says the repubs have their dirty hypocrites too. Just behaving like the Soviet political officers of the last century.
Not sure why Alec Baldwin’s past is not being recalled. Talk to Kim Basinger. Alec is on record in court doing all the same stuff. In fact I believe Kim had a restraining order.
David Letterman should also be remembered for his lewd behavior with underlings and interns.
Eric Schneiderman & Matt Lauer & Tom Brokaw probably went on the town together pillaging women.
I guess it was so open that Trump alluded to it back in around 2013.

NYAG SCHNEIDERMAN IGNORED ALBANY CORRUPTION (CUOMO'S BAILIWICK)
Ever since powerful Albany pol, Sheldon Silvers, arrest, theres been nothing more thunderous in New York than the silence of the states top lawman, Eric Schneiderman. For years Assembly Speaker Silver monetized public office why should it have taken a federal prosecutor to bring him down? Why wasnt it New Yorks attorney general Schneiderman? Schneiderman has said before that "state laws dont give him much power to prosecute crooked pols." But even if its true, the excuse doesnt wash in this case.
When Gov. Cuomo set up the Moreland Commission to probe systemic public corruption and the appearance of such corruption in state government, political campaigns and elections in New York State, commission members were deputized under Attorney General Schneiderman. This was done specifically to give them the authority to investigate the Legislature. Gov. Cuomo later shut down the Moreland Commission before it could finish its work as we can see by corruption charges against Silver. He did so, moreover, after his own staff had been pressuring Moreland investigators against some subpoenas theyd wanted to send out.
Which leaves us with questions. First is whether the governor in fact had the authority to take these powers from Schneidermans deputies in the middle of their investigation. Even if he did, why wasnt Schneiderman screaming to high heaven about what was happening to his deputies?
Its not like Schneiderman to be shy about asking for more power......after criticism of grand jury-decisions in Staten Island and Missouri over police actions that left African-American men dead, AG Schneiderman asked for the power to investigate and prosecute cops involved in altercations with civilians. But when it came to Albanys sleaze, NYAG Schneiderman looked the other way. Theres more charges coming. Every charge proven will also be an indictment of Eric Schneidermans dereliction of duty.
NOTE: AN HOUR AFTER THE STORY SURFACED, CUOMO UNCEREMONIOUSLY DUMPED SCHNEIDERMAN indicating Cuomo KNEW.
Cuomo not taking the cop-out stance of "giving the guy a chance to explain himself" speaks volumes.
SCHNEIDERMAN'S SEXUAL DEVIANCY----spitting at, slapping and choking women he was intimate with was WELL-KNOWN IN POLITICAL CIRCLES.
Could be the jaded pols got vicarious thrills by Schneiderman recounting his abuse to them.
If Gillibrand "believed" Schneiderman, probably everythng else she "believes" is fraudulent.
Infamous Alec Baldwin phone message to 11 year old daughter in which he called her a ‘thoughtless little pig’ =>
Somewhere along the line this stuff always evolves from “I am totally shocked. This is not the man I knew. I just never saw this coming” over to “Well, everyone knew. I mean, it was an open secret. But he supported the right causes, so I tolerated the behavior I had witnessed for years.”
They are all hypocrites.
That would make him an accessory after the fact, no?
But its nice when jerks like Cuomo and the lowlife Schneiderman are forever linked in scandal.
At the time, Moreland commission members were deputized under none other than sexual deviant, then NYAG Schneiderman......
specifically to give commissioners the legal authority to investigate the NY State Legislature.
Gov. Cuomo unceremoniously shut down the Moreland Commission before it could finish its work. He did so, moreover, after his own staff had been pressuring Moreland investigators against some subpoenas theyd wanted to send out.
Which makes us wonder: (1) whether Cumoo had the authority to take these powers from Schneidermans deputies in the middle of their investigation. Even if he did have the power, (2) why wasnt Schneiderman screaming to high heaven about Cuomo deballing his deputies?
One party state-ism. The Republicans allowed this to happen.
This scandal in New York will rival the damage and destruction the PROMISE scandal does in Broward County. Percoco Schneiderman and Silver will NOT go to jail for all they have been convicted of. They will give up Andrew, Prince of Albany Cou-mo and other Democrats.
