BREAKING: NY Attorney General Resigns Amid Major Sexual Assault Allegations

A damning report on New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s sexual depravity has led to his resignation mere hours after the story broke, multiple sources are confirming.

The original story, covered by Ronan Farrow – the journalist who broke the Harvey Weinstein story – detailed the allegations of four women who claimed that Schneiderman had sexually assaulted them. (Interestingly, Schneiderman was also the official who was set to go after Weinstein for the conduct that took the Hollywood powerhouse down.)

Here’s CBS’s story:

Schneiderman wrote in a statement: “It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as Attorney General for the people of the State of New York. In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me. While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”

Earlier, a statement from Schniederman said: “I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross,” he said through an outside spokesman. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a statement in light of “the damning pattern of facts and corroboration” in the article and urged Schneiderman to resign.

The resignation comes in response to a story in The New Yorker which includes two women speaking on the record. The women “accuse Schneiderman of having subjected them to nonconsensual physical violence. All have been reluctant to speak out, fearing reprisal. But two of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women.”

Schneiderman, as reported earlier, was quickly put under pressure by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who called on his resignation “for the sake of the office.” The Attorney General appears to have taken the hint and stepped down quickly.


In the latter part of his tenure as Attorney General, Schneiderman was a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement and deeply critical of President Donald Trump, making very public and very partisan statements about the President’s own alleged misdeeds with women. However, this public persona appears to have been, as one of Schneiderman’s alleged victims described, the “Dr. Jeckyll” to the “Mr. Hyde” she knew.

Look at the tweet from 2013:

Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone - next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner
