New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned Monday night after a bombshell report detailing allegations from multiple women of physical abuse against him.
Just hours after The New Yorker published the claims from four women who said Schneiderman physically abused them, the attorney general offered his resignation in a statement.
“Serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” he said. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct … they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The New Yorker published its report shortly before 7 p.m. in which four women, including two who spoke on the record, accused Schneiderman of physical abuse. Schneiderman offered his resignation, effective at close of business on Tuesday, almost exactly three hours later.
Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam told the magazine that Schneiderman hit them without their permission, often after drinking and in the bedroom.
The two did not report the incidents to the police when they took place but sought medical help after the episodes. They both alleged that the incidents constituted assault.
Both of the women said Schneiderman threatened to kill them if they broke up with him, and Selvaratnam alleged that he said he could have her followed and her phones tapped.
The Hill also reported:
Schneiderman had also been a vocal opponent of the Trump administration. He had sued the federal government over everything from environmental regulations being rolled back to Trump’s travel ban on several predominantly Muslim countries.
He also secured a $25 million settlement from Trump in a lawsuit over the president’s shuttered Trump University program.
