At least four women have come forward, now, to accuse New York’s Democrat Attorney General of sexual abuse. Eric Schneiderman, a BIG Trump hater and a close Hillary Clinton associate, is only the latest big time Democrat to be taken out by the #MeToo movement. So, will Hillary Clinton disavow her buddy?
New Yorker writer Ronan Farrow is once again at the head of a major expose of a Democrat serial abuser with his April 7 story quite directly entitled, “Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse.”
“Eric Schneiderman has raised his profile as a voice against sexual misconduct. Now, after suing Harvey Weinstein, he faces a #MeToo reckoning of his own,” Ronan writes at the outset of his expose.
With Ronan’s piece, we get yet another major Democrat outed as an abuser, another left-wing hypocrite masquerading as an “activist” for women, a man who all the while was acting as if the rules don’t apply to him.
You know. Like a typical Democrat.
Naturally, Schneiderman is denying all charges. But, that likely won’t stop the now rising wave forming against him. The AG took to Twitter to say, all he did was engage in a little innocent “role playing” with his victims.
“In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”
Statement from Eric T. Schneiderman:
"In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross."

But, a few select quotes from Farrow’s story is damning, indeed.
“One of the women, a prominent attorney, wasn’t in a relationship with Schneiderman at all. She says he propositioned her, began calling her a ‘slut’ and a ‘whore,’ and, when she withdrew, struck her without warning,” Ronan wrote.
Ronan added that two of the women felt their injuries were so severe that they had to seek medical attention. They also said that contrary to the AG’s claims, none of them felt they were engaging in any fun sex games nor did they feel they were faced with anything consensual when with the man.
Worse, the women in the story feared for their safety for even being part of the piece.
“Several women in this story expressed fear, for their physical safety or due to what they believed was Eric Schneiderman’s power and ability to retaliate against them and their families. Speaking was an immense, emotionally draining commitment.,” Ronan wrote.
One of the other victims, who wanted to stay anonymous, told Tanya Selvaratnam, one of the women who spoke to Ronan, that she had told “several friends” about what Schneiderman did to her. According to The New Yorker: “A number of them advised her to keep the story to herself, arguing that Schneiderman was too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose,” Ronan wrote.
Schneiderman is accused of both physical abuse and mental abuse.
One of the victims, M Manning Barish also spoke out on Twitter:
“After the most difficult month of my life-I spoke up. For my daughter and for all women. I could not remain silent and encourage other women to be brave for me. I could not.”

Barish also accused the AG of being a lush. He “would almost always drink two bottles of wine in a night, then bring a bottle of Scotch into the bedroom. He would get absolutely plastered five nights out of seven,” Barish said.
Then there is the connection to the Hillary Clinton campaign. As it happens, Schneiderman was a prominent part of Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign:

So, will Hillary disavow yet another close associate? If not, why would she get away with that?
The big guns have already uncharacteristically come out for Schneiderman’s head.
New York’s Governor, Andrew Cuomo, has already asked for Schneiderman to resign in disgrace.
Per Fox News:
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on Schneiderman to resign “for the good of the office” in a statement Monday night.
“No one is above the law, including New York’s top legal officer,” said Cuomo, who cited “the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article.” The governor added that he would ask for an “immediate investigation” and would “proceed as the facts merits.”
The liberal media is jumping on this one with both feet, too.
A few examples…
Maggie Haberman of The New York Times:
“Schneiderman was a prominent voice against Trump, and was also moving to take on his son, Eric, over his charitable foundation. Trump allies have been messaging describing Schneiderman allegations as a win for him.”

Max Tani of the Daly Beast:
“Multiple women tell the New Yorker that NY AG Eric Schneiderman threatened to kill them and “repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent.”.”

The NYT’s Shane Goldmacher:
“Publicly, most prominent New York Democrats are still silent in the wake of the New Yorker report on Schneiderman. Privately, few seem to see him lasting.”

Naturally the center-right Twitter users were all over this:
Boston radio man Howie Carr:
“One of NY AG’s girlfriends was Sri Lankan… he called her his “brown slave…”but Trump is the racist, just ask Schneiderman the Harvard man. Trump said in 2013: “Wait and see, worse than Weiner or Spitzer.” Amazing! Carlos Danger could not be reached for comment at FMC Devens.”

Gateway Pundit writer Cristina Laila:
“Mueller brought on NY AG Eric Schneiderman to work on the Paul Manafort case over the summer… That’s right–the guy who is being accused of beating, choking and threatening to kill women he dated is working with Mueller to take down Trump.”

Finally, it is important to note that Schneiderman is a big anti-Trump voice, too.
For one thing, Schneiderman had teamed up with Trump coup leader Robert Mueller on the fake Russian collusion probe. And then the New York AG also spearheaded a group of other, liberal AGs across the country to sue the Trump administration for its policies. And Schneiderman has also been a constant and virulent Trump attacker.
In any case, it is early in this story, granted, but things are not looking good for Eric Schneiderman.
Well, that didn’t take long. By Monday evening, Schneiuderman resigned his post as New York’s Attorney General.
