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...

Ha. Haha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You think there is any chance, any at all, that any SCOTUS pick is going to fly without the full approval of the squid?

The key point here is that Schneiderman and Master cannot confine themselves to an issue on which they disagree with President Trump. Instead, they are making it clear to any observer that their only issue is Trump. And they’ve scoured the landscape for anything to use against him. One wonders if they would not use a traffic violation if they could find one.

This incredible bias against justice is the mark of so many of these outlandish attacks on the president. And it is no secret that the force and the funds for much of this work originates from the oligarchs – from the investment bankers and their paymaster, i.e., the Federal Reserve, to the  Jewish Lobby and the wide range of recipients of socialist government largesse, special privilege and handouts.

It’s a weakness when your motive is not an issue but a target, in this case, the President of the United States and the people who elected him. It’s a losing argument.

It is not a losing proposition if your real goal is merely to generate an endless stream of negative press releases against your opposition.  Scnheiderman and Master should be forced to register as federal political lobbyists.

NAV's picture

Excellent point. And much of the media should be registered as political lobbyists as well, because true journalists and a responsible press would blow these lies and their perpetrators away.

They should be required to register as foreign lobbyists for racist Apartheid Israel.

Sorry we are busy on 4:20.  Find another day for your party.

How about 4:22?

It's a Saturday.

You can go wild!

I thought 420 was about weed. Those white nationalists are smart.

It is pretty funny how all these libtard idiots go on and on about the threat of Trump being a dictator and yet their actions are actually making the idea of a Trump dictatorship appealing.

And you are proof that they are begining their own destruction.

Maybe Trump should get a big plane ready for these people by using that no warrant,no trial fast track to Gitmo option. These liberal DemoNazis should easily qualify!

Examine all Schneiderman's communications at the NSA.  Anything criminal; indict.   Anything embarrassing; leak.   Liberals always project their misdeeds onto their"enemies."

But who will investigate Schneiderman?

Nobody - He's a Jewish Democrat in New York.

Slightly off topic: latest episode of "Homeland" (ep 9) and a ludicrous (and disturbing) attack on alternative/conservative sites like this one. Small spoiler perhaps: A shadowy organisation funds an underground group fronted by a GlenBeckian-style media blowhard. The organisation has dozens of shills in its employ, monitoring blogs and online news sites, working off pre-written scripts of reactionary comment. An investigator gets too close to the truth of this organisation and is murdered.

OK its fiction (and totally absurd...teams of shills working in shifts, WTF) but it leaves an impression: so-called alt-right opinion is not honest but paid for and thus it can be ignored. Attacks on freedom of speech comes in many outrageous forms nowadays.

Everything on TV and cable is 100% United States of America's Feral Gangster Government approved Propaganda. The Feral Gangster Government controls absolutely the CONporate Mainstream FAKE NEWS Media (CMSFNM). Now, guess which group 100% controls the Feral Gangster Government?

Hint: it's the same group that has quite openly controlled the Goldman Sachs Feral Reserve System for 4 of the last 5 decades.

What Trump needs to do is start criminal charges of aiding and abetting against all sanctuary cities, their mayors and anyone who voted for sanctuary city status as councilmen.

It is an easy conviction, and once they are convicted they are removed from office and can no longer vote as they are convicted felons.

That is a big problem with Trump he does not go after anybody including hillary.

Can we just skip all of these preliminary dog and pony shows and get to the part where we start utilizing ropes and lamppost to correct the nations course. Seriously, take the Declaration of Independence replace all references to the King with references to current government and it fits almost perfectly.

OK, now will you recover the money the Obamas were not authorized to spend on the Hawaii vacations? That was quite a bit more than the Trump settlement.

THIS has potential to cause that civil war we've been talking about.

Once you see few politicians dangling by a rope from a lamp posts, then it will be the real civil war.

Arrest the motherfucking jew boy for sedition, right now.

Maybe all the pedophilia arrests are getting a little too close for comfort.... perhaps a distraction is needed... this guy didnt come up with this idea himself

Seat a Federal Grand Jury to investigate the Clintons... focus on fraud and potential RICO violations.

There's nothing illegal about rational discrimination. This Kike will do as Kike's always do, lie every time he opens his yap. I'm sure Mr. Schneiderman wouldn't object to some through vetting of his own affairs. Glass houses and all that.

The neoconservatives (99% Trotskyist Jews), Bucking Ofama, the Goldman Sachs Feral Reserve System, the George Soros funded Black Jew Bloc and their CONporate Mainstream FAKE NEWS Media (CMSFNM) are trying to overthrow President Donald Trump. President Trump is also being undermined by the Goldman Sachs moles he has appointed in his own Administration.

The neoconservatives are motivated by their intense hatred of Christianity, especially Orthodox Christianity, and their goal is the final and total destruction of Russia and Orthodox Christianity. They failed to totally destroy Russia during the Communist Party's 70 year reign of terror. Now they are trying to use their control of the United States to start thermonuclear World War 3 to destroy Russia, Russian Orthodox Christianity and Western Christianity.

The United States has given $125 BILLION to Apartheid Israel to date and it will rise to $165 BILLION by 2029. That's more than any other nation has received since the end of World War 2. On a per capita basis the amount given to tiny Apartheid Israel is even more extreme.

US Aid represents 3% of Apartheid Israel's government budget and 1% of their GDP, 20% of the Defense budget, 40% of the IDF budget and 100% of the procurement budget.

The Jews repay the United States by trying to destroy American society* and trying to depose** the legally elected President of the United States using their control of the Goldman Sachs Feral Reserve System*** and the CONporate Mainstream FAKE NEWS Media (CMSFNM). Thanks a lot.

By the way Rachel Madcow is paid $30,000 per DAY by the CCC (Criminal crony capitalist) MSNBC, a proud member of the LÜGENPRESSE, to spew propaganda every night.

*the Bolsheviks of the Frankfurt Group were given asylum in America after Adolph Hitler and the NSDAP (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) came to power. The anti-American activities of those Jewish Bolsheviks, and prior Jewish Bolsheviks allowed into the United States, played a large role in restricting further Jewish immigration from Europe before and during World War 2. Unfortunately, following World War 2, tens of thousands of Jewish Bolsheviks were allowed to immigrate to the United States. Then even more were allowed in who were allegedly 'fleeing Soviet oppression'.

**the Black Jew Bloc largely funded by the Jewish World War 2 war criminal George Soros who made a fortune turning over Hungarian Jews to the SS (Schutzstaffel) and Geheimstatspolizei for a percentage of their assets.

*** Controlled by people such as Arthur F. Burns, Alan Greenspan, Benjamin Shalom Bernanke and Janet Yellen for 4 of the preceding 5 decades. The Goldman Sachs Feral Reserve System's overarching mandate is "stealing from those who can least afford it and giving to those who least deserve it". They have been wildly successful in their campaign to massively increase wealth and income inequality in America.

Trump is in there as deep as can be. He is a zionist , don't kid yourself.

Their American passports should be revoked and then deported to the only country to which they are loyal: racist Apartheid Israel.

This is "in your face" prosecutorial abuse of power. Never seen it so brazenly announced ahead of time.

gregga777's picture

Jews are loyal only to each other and to racist Apartheid Israel. Revoke their American passports and deport all of them to the Social Justice Warrior's paradise of racist Apartheid Israel. Then cutoff all foreign aid and weapons transfers.

Why is Trump taking blow after blow from these scums ? Are they now using public fund to hire someone to go after the president ? It this even legal ? 

Regardless, this open attacks diminish the office of the president. What will happen to other future persidents ? Shouldnt congree or the POTUS do something about this ?

Nothing will happen to future presidents.


If they are approved by the DNC and their masters.

There is a good reason why Jews have been kicked out of every country {except one; guess who that would be?} they have ever settled in: JEWS WILL DESTROY YOUR CULTURE, PEOPLE AND COUNTRY IF YOU ALLOW THEM TO. I used to feel bad for what happened to them in the past. NOT ANYMORE. THEY HAD IT COMING. I hope Iran is able to acquire nukes so they can cleanse the earth from this plague known as Israel and it's filthy vermin that inhabit the land that they stole from the Palestinians.  Can't come soon enough. You want world peace, it's simple: GET RID OF THE JEWS. They have been instigating wars for centuries, and all for a profit too. What is the blood of the goy worth to them anyway? Read their trash called the Talmud and it will tell you what they think of the rest of us.

NY is an embarrassing pit.  Look at my outrageous taxes--all going downstate to pay for buffoons like this.

All the rents in NYC are tanking.  And yet the city is willing to risk losing sanctuary funds because they have such high "standard"--need more immigrant criminals to rape and murder the rest of us.
