NY Attorney General Hires Public-Corruption Prosecutor To Target Trump Administration; WSJ Reports

Tyler Durden's picture

Just days after the controversial dismissal of former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara by Jeff Sessions, (see "Trump Fires US Attorney Preet Bharara After He Refuses To Quit"), New York state’s attorney general, and well known Democrat donor, Eric Schneiderman, has decided to pick up the crusade against the Trump administration where Bharara left off by announcing the hiring of his top public-corruption prosecutor, Howard Master, to focus specifically on issues involving the Trump administration.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the hiring of Master, whose title will be senior enforcement counsel, signals Schneiderman’s continued intent to take on the Republican president.  Eric Soufer, a spokesman for Schneiderman's office, confirmed Master’s hiring and said he “will be working on a wide range of civil and criminal investigations and enforcement matters, including public corruption, complex civil litigation” and potentially litigation against the Trump administration.



Of course, for the past year or so Schneiderman has been the ringleader of a group of Democratic attorneys general who have directed both legal challenges and critical rhetoric toward the president on matters including his executive orders on immigration and refugees, climate change and threats to deport millions of illegal immigrants, among other issues.

Last week, Schneiderman’s office joined Washington state’s lawsuit against the Trump administration’s revised immigration order. “The Trump administration’s continued intent to discriminate against Muslims is clear,” Schneiderman said at the time, “and it undermines New York’s families, institutions and economy.”

Meanwhile, Scheiderman also led the charge against the now defunct Trump University that allegedly defrauded students and resulted in Trump paying a $25 million settlement.  Below was Schneiderman's full statement on the settlement:


He is also the AG who notified Donald Trump that his charitable foundation was violating state law back in October 2016, convenient timing for such an announcement, by soliciting donations without proper certification and ordered the charity to stop its fundraising immediately...a laughable offense given the many issues surrounding the Clinton Foundation, which was also based in New York, that went unrecognized the NY AG's office.

The undrainable swamp will not be defeated...

I have an idea, These prog NY lawyers have a nose for annuitizing faux public corruption cases. I expect this circle jerk will continue to expand. Very lucrative endeavor, all at taxpayer's expense. What a shit show

It was a rhetorical question...... LOL

And covering up the Clintons' crimes

"State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman gave the Clinton Foundation a pass on identifying foreign donors in its charitable filings — making it impossible to know if it got any special favors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, according to a report Tuesday."

“Organizations that received a contribution or grant from a government agency during the reporting period shall include the name of each agency from which contributions were received and the amount of each contribution.”

But both the foundation and the CHAI failed to do that, and  Schneiderman, a member of Clinton’s “leadership council” in New York and a fierce critic of Donald Trump, did nothing about it.




Blankenstein's picture



"From 2010 to 2014, CHAI failed to list $225 million in contributions on disclosure forms with the New York state government, which requires charities to itemize each domestic and foreign government donation."

"For years CHAI followed this pattern, without intervention from Schneiderman’s office, of flat-out ignoring New York state’s more rigid disclosure requirements which ask that charities publicly disclose and itemize each domestic and foreign government donation."

“The law requires foreign donors to be disclosed and the [New York] attorney general, the [New York] attorney general’s office is permitting them to go undisclosed,” Wonderlich said.

While the fucker is in french polynesia at a very private island. I hear tell some of the facilities are $18k a night. How much for the SS detail? BTW, this coincides with the SS losing a laptop with Hillary's shit on it. Somethings up...

Blankenstein's picture

Last but not least:


 Also, donating to the Hildabeast and holding a fundraiser for her.


"The Sunlight Foundation also pointed out that Schneiderman donated $2,700, the maximum personal contribution amount allowed, to Clinton last year and hosted a fundraiser for her. The non-profit group said Schneiderman was making a "glaring omission" for not forcing the Clinton’s Health Access Initiative to publicly disclose gifts from foreign governments."

Desperation so thick you could cut goats with it

Not so much desperation as it is SOP against outsiders.

It's going to be interesting to see what sort of obscure charges they will be brave enough to try use to run him out of office.

I'm hoping it's at least as entertaining as when Ashcroft charged Green Peace with "Sailor Mongering."

It really sucks that goats are involved. Their cute, and tasty! I like feta cheese on my salad I eat 4 times a year.
.....I use broccoli for my fiber. Fuck Bush!

Nobodys Home's picture

Not really. True Satanists are not worried about death.
Pain before death might be a bit different though.

(((They))) are getting desperate, the stupid goyim know.  Time for some divide and conquer distractions.

Nobodys Home's picture

Beat me to it. I was going to say (and I guess I still am:)
(((They))) really want a lot more immigrants!

I say we fight this crap. I don't want to live in The EU-USA!

Jubal Early's picture

Its all coming to a head, and Trump is not in our corner.  I have lived at least 75% of my life and I would sacrifice the rest of what is left to clear the deck for my grandchildren.  Clearing the deck of a tribe of racist supremicists who have genocided millions upon millions of my people means that I cannot trust a word any of them say, even the "good ones".  And I dont.  They own the media, the banking system, the education system, "science", the catholic church, drug production around the world, pornography industry, munitions industry, and they are blackmailing the entire planet with their samson bomb.

Nobodys Home's picture

I'm at exactly 75% of the years I think I'll live. I'm a nurse so I think I have a good idea. I've got 20-22 years at most. I feel the same way at this point. I have grand children too. I'll work until I can't if things don't fall apart. I'll then fight until I can't if they do. This old conservamudgeon will do his part.
I despise my country being owned, subverted and controlled by (((anyone!)))

I have had small hopes lately with all the states that are recognizing and legalizing using gold and silver as money...and a few getting rid of the capital gains taxes. Anything to weaken and End The Fed!

Jubal Early's picture

I agree, the Fed is critical, as are all the other (((central banks))).  But I don't know what I can do about it.  The (((casino))) is so rigged on every table...   So I write foolish things that could get me thrown in jail in the hope that that some how helps.   Even if majority of the stupid goyim manage to wake up I am still very pessimistic, just look what they did to the third reich who had all of Europe under their control up to the Moscow suburbs.

Nobodys Home's picture

What I am going to do about it is to try and start a movement in my state (NH) to adopt gold and silver as currency as well.

It's all I think I can do to help cut off the head of the snake.

I don't want war. I don't want to kill anyone. I'm an RN that saves lives. As such I have also killed people...Morphine during comfort care...I've given the last shot.

I believe Trump was in our corner. Now, I think he would be happy just to find a corner to sit and take a break in. 

The Swamp told Obama they would make him rich and that was all it took to grab him by his useless balls. Thump, on the other hand was already rich. 

They are going to pile on shit until he can't see what is real anymore. I hope his health holds up for 4 years.

The people need to have massive demonstrations to show support. 

Jubal Early's picture

With all the jews around him, with his grandchildren being Ortodox jews, how can you possibly think that he isn't in on it all?

Got The Wrong No's picture

Are all white people evil?

Are all Black people evil? 

are all Japanese people evil?

Are all Latinos evil?

Are all Christians evil?

Fuck Off. 

Jubal Early's picture

No but for. over 2000 years the jews have claimed that they are gods chosen people and that one day all the people you claim I think are evil will be their slaves.  I don't think I am better than any of hte groups you listed, but the jews do. 

PS:  You really should try to avoid using yiddish vulgarity, it not only is unbecoming it also sheds light into your yid slave soul.

Got The Wrong No's picture

The Zionist do. I know many Jews who are good people. And again, Fuck Off. Your judgement means nothing to me. You sound like a real douche bag.

Nobodys Home's picture

I was raised in a wealthy town. I was a better than average musician. I was a good engineer. I was a decent television commercial spot producer and animator while heading my own corporation. I dealt with many of the Jewish persuasion. I ditched it all. I'm an RN now.
I hate to say it...I have never got along with anyone of the Jewish faith I have ever met, once we really got down to talking. Sorry. I tried. Even everyday Jews are stuck up assholes. They think their shit doesn't stink and I'd rather not even talk to people like that. As a nurse I'm professional and give you what I should. I don't let it interfere with work. I'll save you too, or give you the morphine to keep you comfortable. In work I have no issues with anyone......Out of work...idiots!

No jewish people mentioned.
AshkeNAZI or Judean? Neither. Hmmm.

Its time to fastrack the proscecution of Clinton and ALL of her aids to kick these people in the teeth.

The Trump Justice Department needs to get all the people appointed and then start steamrolling this type of belligerent judicial activism. Slam these guys HARD with prejudice and counter sue to hammer the states and municipalities supporting this type activity. No one can sue more than the Government. And Government attorneys are on the clock all the time, on salary. Not so with the states and municipalities who have to hire attorneys.

Make them pay.

Then make them pay for ANOTHER YEAR.

Agreed. Go after them. Hard.

I ask myself why have the Dems, the Clinton crew and the rest of the Swamp Scum come out swinging so hard, so early in Trump's term? Could it be that not only is "the best form of defense is offense" but to also garner victimhood sympathy. First, you construct a false narrative e that "Trump is a bully and autocrat" and then you use this as a PR shield to try to get something (political support) out of a negative (censure and criminal charges).

The Dems are mostly just trying to hold onto their base (prog idealist loonies) by trying to smokescreen their malfeasance. With the cooperation of the MSM it will work, sadly

Right both OC and risk! But don't forget the ole..."Blame them for what you are doing"...It's typical progressive socialist communist bullshit....that left untended changes sheeples minds. Keep it simple stupid ..KISS.
Hearts and minds and end the fed!

What is Trump and Sessions waiting for? I just don't get it. I understand we are not prvy to the information, but it's taking an awfully long time for him to go after the people trying to do him in. 

Got The Wrong No's picture

I feel the same way. I hate to say it, but maybe they have something on Trump that is keeping him silent. That would really suck. No justice for the law biding people. 

crossroaddemon's picture

They don't have to have anything on him. All they have to do is say "JFK" and it's over. I said this during the campaign and will say it again. Even if he's sincere, he's going to be toothless. He's quite simply outgunned here.

Got The Wrong No's picture

I have said the same thing. The question is, if he is rendered toothless then why have the attacks not stopped? We all know that the 2 Party system is dead. They can run the show on autopilot if he is compromised. Something else is happening. Time will tell.

Nobodys Home's picture

Perhaps he already has really nice dentures and doesn't care.

They're smoking doobs together in the oval office laughing at how gullible us proles are.

Another fucking nut job. Amazing that he can take Cuomo's dick out of his mouth long enough to hold another pointless press conference.

At least during the decline and fall of Rome, people were able to get drunk and fuck. We've been on taxed into staying home and watching these cock sucker fuck the country into oblivion.

Instead we get Schumers niece's fat tits and bitchy ignorant loud mouth....and when the populace votes one star...(((They))) change the vote to thumbs down! Like that helps the stuggling no talent Yid bitch!
