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...

Lawyer scum. One of the first orders of business for Trump should have been lawsuit/legal reform. The corrupt, money grubbing, lawyers and courts (lawyers) are running the country and they're fucking it up BIG TIME. All while they become more rich and everyone else more poor.

Projection is a big thing in American politics. Eric Schneiderman must have a lot of corruption that he's trying to hide.

The Irony  "Public Corruption"

Isn't it corruption to use public funds to propagate one's personal political beliefs and agenda?

It's always a good thing when the traitors stand up and announce themselves in such a public fashion.  Y'all will know what to do when the time comes ;-)

I'm with TRUMP !

Another Pedophile speaks out.

Lock him up.

Schneiderworm had years to appoint a special prosecutor for that sleazy little cockroach Weiner, yet he never did.

But he goes hell for leather after Trump.

So he's okay with sex perverts but .gov problems concern him?

He must be part of some sleazy circle himself if Weiner never made it onto his radar.

Fake news from ZH. Wow.

What's good for the goose...

Sessions needs to fire Comey and get some tough law enforcment people in there and start prosecuting these criminals. Plus, hire a few hundred lawyers to countersue. The NY taxpayers will love paying for all these lawsuits ....

Another day another demonic Jew attacks Trump....zzzzzz

Every time I read something like this I'm reminded of that old joke about what you call 10,000 lawyers in the bottom of a well....

Hey Carl, thats almost as antisemitic as islam.

Maybe they can go after Schneiderman for public corruption.  He has nothing and this is politically driven...he will search until he finds something innocuous and then ry and turn it into a scandal.  Isn't that a witch hunt?  Isn't that targeting?  Isn't that illegal?  Shouldn't people be scared of that type of behavior?  This is Gestapo tactics.

This is nothing short of open sedition by the globalists jew against Trump. This may prove that there is no political solution forthcoming.

The longer this goes on without major perp walks and disruption of their treason, the more i fear you are correct

crossroaddemon's picture

FUCK. Do you need proof of that? Before ZH jumped on the Trump train like a bunch of goddamn lemming, no political solutions was damn near the consensus opinion around here. What the hell happened?

How is this not treason?

I'm beginning to see the argument that we are headed towards outright civil war.

If someone absolutely insists on knifing you, it's suicide to let them.

Where was this asshole with the Clinton Foundation investigations?  Oh, that's right, they are all in on it together.

Obama has enough dirt to keep lawyers busy until Hell freezes over. Nobody's doing squat. 

Unless the Jews are fighting amongst themselves, it appears that they certainly have a hard on for Trump.

If I was Trump. I would get my family and trusted people out of Washington, then call on Putin to nuke the place.

Hell, take out New York City and California as well.  


Lumberjack's picture

Same with the global warming bullshit the AG's are pushing their current witchhunt on. 




Yes, I wrote this piece and find it interesting that Comey was in Boston about a week ago. The coverup regarding certain renewable companies and CIA fiasco's keep rolling along.

Can you actually believe this shit?  This is fucking WAR!  This is as partisan as it gets.  These guys must be desparate.

They lost over a thousand seats of power because of this shit. Dems and the Media are nuts.

There are some that are ready to eat the banksters;)

War is when people take up arms and throw off tyrants. All any of us do is bitch. I see no war

Easier to eliminate Social Security than to even cripple the legal mafia. The legal mafia doesn't only own Congress they populate it. Lawyers are scum but they do have a bunch of pretty smart ones and they are even better than banksters at insuring the survival of their cash flow.

I think fishing with you would be fun. As we exhibited our lack of skill we could argue.

'Undrainable' is relative and a matter of Will To Power, to cite Netsche.

With Trump constantly playing defense, lacking quality advisors and lacking a spine to do what is required - to fire and arrest people - all he has to shoot with, is his mouth.

Rallies and Twitter. Ooh! TPTB and the Deep State are quacking in their boots.

As for his Base, about the only thing they can do, is to blog or pray. Sounds ominous and menacing. 

(sarcastic me, lacking respect)

I gave you a green because I agree that he is not agressive enough.

For example this judge in Hawaii.

I would love to hear that the federal government will be leasing a few of the houses in that judge's neighborhood and filling them with some refugees.

Quaking. Quaking in their boots.

I'm with you NH. I live here. Fuck the swamp! We have constitutional carry now. Kind of scary if you think of idiots with guns...but very good if you think of freedom.

I don't carry, but I have always carried a nice knife. I have guns but will only use them to hunt, target shoot, or protect my abode. Unless the world turns. I have the ability to shut off my empathy if peoples crap messes with my family.

HRClinton's picture

Listen, Mons Pubis, let's leave arcane  ME superstitions out of this.

Trump's enemies don't respect him for a number of reasons. Besides his many contradictions, BS stories, juvenile grandstanding and showman hyperbole, dumb remark and unbacked claims, the biggest reason they/we don't respect Trump, is that NO ONE FEARS TRUMP.

He has shown to have no balls, no spine, no hammer. No one is getting fired, arrested, disappeared or suicided. The enemies of the Obamas and us Clintons knew better. 

I laugh at what we get away with. So do my friends and former associates. We laugh our butts off at cocktail parties, to the point of tears.

Please cite your examples of trump for:

Liberals retards like You are the biggest reason, I don't support democrats.
