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.

Mester

 

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...

Right! I'm not happy with my taxes being used to undermine our president that I voted for!...Even a president I didn't vote for! This is bullshit!

I wondered where the clown studied law. The last I checked, not being tied to the criminal democrat pedophile cabal is not a crime.

Come on Mr. President... take the gloves off and bury these FU#kers once and for all!

I have my own intelligence agency. It is called Wiki where the idiots tell me everything,

"Schneiderman was born to a Jewish family[1] in New York City; he is the son of Abigail Heyward and Irwin Schneiderman, a lawyer.[2] He graduated from the Trinity School in New York City in 1972 and Amherst College in 1977. He then graduated from Harvard Law School in 1982.[3]"

Eric, Fuc* Off

shall we take bets on how long before Wikipedia gets prog-pressured into removing all reference to a person's Jewish ancestry? Amazing considering how obssessive some folks are these days about finding raycissts (sic) under every bed. If so, Wikipedia should push back and remind critics that Jewish communities around the world publish versions of The Jewish Who-Who so its already public domain info.

One day, a clever geneticist will isolate (and neutralize) the "contrarian" gene that Jewish people seem to have in spades. Bliss and peace will then descend upon the planet. Sigh...

There's one of the reasons our country is so fucked up.  We were led for the last 8 years by a beta male.

And, in Democrat controlled states, the same tends to be the case.

Cuomo is a wanna-be gangster, but still a beta male, like his sissy little brother on CNN.

These guys are all light in the loafers, and Schneiderman is another one.

The fucking jew, schneiderman, is guilty of something.

The jew designed, bolshevik revolution occured 100 years ago.

 

The time has come for the USA to expel its jews, dead or alive.

Funny and great that prices have come down since Trump was elected.

Sucks that Odickless banned lead smelting in the US. I wonder why?....You can still buy and melt all the lead flashing you can afford!

edit: I wonder if Trumps revamp of the EPA will somehow reverse that.

The Kenyan got a free ride for 8 excruciating years and President Trump has only been in office for a couple of months and a multitude of big guns and high paid mouthpieces are trying to dethrone him, kick him out.

Is this Democracy or is this subversion?

I've never witnessed anything like it.

Nobodys Home's picture

I'm surprised you aren't supporting it. You waffle back and forth between liberal troll and Conservative supporter. Or is it that you see the wrong in it and that it really is a bipartisan issue?
Whether liberals know it or not, and they don't seem to, socialism/communism ends badly every time. Almost like fractional reserve fiat.

just the tip's picture

then you didn't follow the personal and professional destruction of sarah palin, post veep campaign in 2008.  beginning with the presidential candidate, mccain, and his entire staff throwing her under a bus.  more than one actually.  this is formula driven.  this is exactly what happened to her.  every day a different personal lawsuit.  sometimes not even a personal lawsuit but sometimes a lawsuit was filled charging her with something that was not illegal, because if it was, the AG of alaska should have been filing it.  about 90% were dismissed on preliminary but each had to be addressed.  ms. palin did not have the personal resources to protect herself.  so she resigned.  when she did, the lawsuits stopped.  odd that.

like i said this is formula driven, and will only pick up speed.  new york this week.  maybe next month governor moonbeam will add to the list of eric holder's army and sic him on potus as well.  thing is, trump has deeper pockets than ms. palin.  this will get further out of hand.  trump is doing one thing.  creating jobs in the opposition camp.  i just wonder who is paying their tab?

Robert Trip's picture

Food for thought and well presented.

Thank you.

Nobodys Home's picture

"i just wonder who is paying their tab?"
Really? Do you really? I think you know.
Perhaps if the congress investigation of US funds via USAID (which I believe is a SeeEyeAy front) and I just said CIA that way for fun, to Soros NGOs in Macedonia to influence their elections, and fund the youth movements "for democracy", come to fruition, that will open doors to trace things back worldwide about just who pays whose tabs......
But even though I think it could if delved into deep enough, I bet it doesn't :(
But one of them died today!!!!!!!

This is what the Fuhrer was faced with, non stop attacks by Zionists.

Another fucking Liberal, Jewish Havard Law graduate with aspirations of being best friends with George Clooney, Michael Moore and Cher set out to re-make the world in his own warped image pandering to the Manhattan/Long Island liberals to either run for Mayor or Governor.  He should keep in mind Spitzer, Weiner et, al when choosing to pick fights publically for political gain.  What a tool!

and now we know why trump didn't hesitate giving a raise to the defense dept.. the best security guard one could hope for is on your side!

Robert Trip's picture

Why is the AG of New York going after our duly elected President?

This attack is undermining the base on which our Republic was created, respect the opinions of the people.

Throw this fucking asshole in jail for subversive activity detrimental to the welfare of our Nation.

Fuck him, the sniveling little prick.

elected President is not a license to steal?

1933 Germany.

That's the template for handling these fuckers.

It's never been improved upon.

Nobodys Home's picture

The problem is..these fuckers are already waaay ahead at using that very same template. We need to firebomb Dresden and nuke Hiroshima. (Well, maybe Fukushima makes up for that part)...but I digress. The left IS using 1933 tactics, They work just as well in the "new modern" world. They use them in reverse though. The people the brown shirts would have dragged into the streets are now the people ready to do it.

Another Shumer (((tool))). This office should be shut down for not doing their job and for wasting taxpayer's money.

I guess this is more important than going after the pedophile progressives who are hurting children. 

Robert Trip's picture

How can this AG of New York appoint someone to specifically go after the duly elected President of the United States with the ultimate goal of getting Trump thrown out of office?

This jerk is basically going after the 51% of the population that cast their ballots for Trump.

What's the Schneiderman snorting or shooting into his arm?

There are words for this behavior such as subversion and sedition.

When the piper begins to play he will be among the first to the gallows, and justly so.

Can this AG be sued by a Trump voter for attempting to violate his right to choose a prsident ? 

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

How does one discriminate against a group by a temporary band not affecting the vast majority of muslims.

And since when does a foreign national have any 'RIGHT' at all to enter the us?

Someone ought to sue the NY AG for improper use of taxpayer funds and the state bar association should review whether heavily politicized, partisan efforts by a public attorney is an ethics violation.

essentially, he's using ny tax dollars to hire someone to go on fidhing expeditions and file nuisance suits challenging the ability of Trump (but not Obama) to make EOs re immigration - as authorized by Congress.

its one thing to challenge Trump's actions in good faith: another to use public office to harass and pester a politician you dont like.

This was a great article at Moon of Alabama on just how full of shit the Left was on the 'muslim ban'

I really do hope someone sues this fucking guy for... shit... something lol. Abuse of office? public funds- the stuff re the Clinton Foundation posted above... how can the AG simply not enforce the law as to Clinton?

Maybe Trump should ask the DOJ to investigate the NY AG for corruption and violation of federal election laws.

Oboy. I'm sure he would have skipped all this with Hillary. Her corruption was Democrat approved.

Once SCOTUS is appointed there will be a quick path build to dismiss frivolous lawsuits from dem shitbags - lower courts won't be fucking around as much with a Trump biased SCOTUS in charge.

 

Post SCOTUS appointment - DOJ will be firing a few judges and redrawing the 9th circuit too.
