And he has also raised concerns about shutting down the Mueller investigation by his repeated criticism of Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

NY legislators will interview candidates for state attorney general next week in Albany, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced Wednesday.

And in 1996, Gov. George Pataki appointed Attorney General Dennis Vacco as a special prosecutor to pursue charges against an ex-convict charged with killing a city police officer after Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson refused to seek the death penalty.

In a shocking and lightning-fast series of events, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was publicly accused on Monday by four women he had previously been in relationships with of varying degrees of physical abuse and intimidation. Singas will work with Sini to investigate an incident in which a woman accused Schneiderman of slapping her at a house in the Hamptons in 2016.

Raising the specter of untoward political motivation, Vance noted that, the day Cuomo directed the AG's office to investigate was the same day Cynthia Nixon announced her campaign, which, Vance said, was seen by some as "politically motivated".

Schneiderman was the scion of a wealthy Manhattan lawyer who donated generously to causes like Planned Parenthood and public radio.

"In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me", Schneiderman said in a statement Monday.

Governor Andrew Cuomo and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance are focusing on the investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against former State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. "But it's really very complicated", said Judy Harris Kluger, a former sex-crimes prosecutor and current executive director of Sanctuary for Families, which aids domestic-violence victims. Now, a spokesman in Vance's office said in a statement that the district attorney's office "has opened an investigation into the recently reported allegations concerning Mr. Schneiderman".

Schneiderman was now heading the investigation into film producer Harvey Weinstein, whose history of sexual harassment and assault was revealed by The New Yorker as well.

A newly announced Republican-Conservative candidate for NY attorney general is asking "who else knew" about the allegations that led to the downfall of Democrat Eric Schneiderman. Her long history of legal work includes work as both a federal prosecutor in Brooklyn and with the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens district attorneys.

A bipartisan state Legislature committee will select an attorney general to fill the remainder of Schneiderman's term. It added: "We're keeping this piece online in the interest of integrity".
