New York AG Resigns Hours After Explosive Assault Allegations

Four women have accused New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who is suing Harvey Weinstein of physical abuse

"I was deeply troubled tonight to learn of the disturbing allegations made against Eric Schneiderman, and I support his decision to resign from office", Healey said in a statement released about an hour after Schneiderman announced he would resign.

Manhattan attorney Manny Alicandro (al-leh-KAN'-droh), speaking Tuesday on WNYM radio, said there must have been "enablers" who kept quiet about allegations that Schneiderman had physically abused four women during what were supposed to be romantic encounters. For my daughter and for all women. "But he abuses them privately", Selvaratnam told The New Yorker.

In one instance, Manning Barish told The New Yorker, Schneiderman hit her and then choked her.

In a statement forwarded to CNN through a friend, Selvaratnam said that after finding out other women had accused Schneiderman of abuse, she wondered who was next.

"In my view, both New York's speaker and governor will ensure that NY will not miss a beat with the selection of a dynamic new attorney general who will continue to hold President Trump and his allies accountable for the injustices they cause", said Charlie King, a top Cuomo adviser and former state party executive director. "We must recognize that our work keeping New Yorkers safe from domestic violence is far from over", Mr. Schneiderman said in the announcement for the 2016 brochure.

Schneiderman's ex-wife Jennifer Cunningham defended her former husband, saying the accusations are "inconsistent" with his character.

Schneiderman, who has been a crusader for liberal causes, including the #MeToo Movement, quickly followed suit. Manhattan District Attoryney Cy Vance has now opened an investigation into the case. "I have not assaulted anyone".

Schneiderman, in statements, denied assaulting anyone and said he had never engaged in non-consensual sex - "a line I would not cross", said the divorced father of a daughter.

In a statement reported by The New York Times, Schneiderman said, "It's been my great honor and privilege to serve as attorney general for the people of the State of New York".

"He was cutting off my ability to breathe", she said. "I could not leave my sisters who had been harmed, hanging, discredited when I knew the truth". "I find it impossible to believe these allegations are true".

Like others who have held the post in recent years, Schneiderman has been a regular foe of Wall Street, helping secure billions of dollars in settlements from investment banks over issues stemming from trading in their dark pools to deceptive practices in the sale of residential mortgage-backed securities.

He launched a civil rights probe into the New York City-based company in October after the New York Times and the New Yorker exposed allegations of sexual assault and harassment spanning decades.

On Twitter, Donald Trump Jr. showcased one of Schneiderman's tweets from past year saying that he would remind President Trump that no one was above the law, with Trump Jr. adding, "You were saying???" Last month, he asked lawmakers to change the state's double jeopardy law to exempt presidential pardons, which would mean he and local prosecutors could try people at the state level for crimes that have already been tried in federal court. Schneiderman had positioned himself as a leader of the liberal resistance to Trump and had warned in a tweet past year that no one was above the law.

Other names floated include Rep. Kathleen Rice, a Long Island Democrat and former district attorney who lost to Schneiderman in a primary for attorney general back in 2010; Alphonso David, chief counsel to Gov. Andrew Cuomo; and Queens state Sen.
