The New York State Attorney General who launched an investigation into the Trump Foundation DURING the Election, WHILE SERVING on the Hillary Clinton Leadership Council for New York State, is once again showing his extremist political zeal and lack of ethics in using his public office for political power.
He has recently announced he is launching yet another investigation targeting Trump, based on no evidence, only a wish to do damage to his political opponents.
From Daily Caller:
“New York State Attorney General Eric Scheiderman has launched a probe of the Donald J. Trump Foundation to ensure its compliance with state regulations governing charities.
Scheiderman is a Democrat who serves on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s leadership council in New York state.
“My interest in this issue really is in my capacity as regulator of non-profits in New York state. And we have been concerned that the Trump Foundation may have engaged in some impropriety from that point of view,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper Tuesday. “We have been looking into the Trump Foundation to make sure it’s complying with the laws governing charities in New York.”
The attorney general was named to the committee in October. The Clinton campaign said the panel would serve, “as the in-state leadership for the campaign, amplifying the campaign’s national voice to New York families aiding the campaign with rapid response, organization building, grassroots organizing events, recruiting volunteer leaders, and identifying leaders for Get Out The Vote activities.” Other appointees to the group include Gov. Andrew Cuomo; members of the New York Democratic congressional delegation including Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand; and assorted dignitaries.
From Daily Mail:
New York’s attorney general is positioning himself to be top independent watchdog of the Trump administration.
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has hired on Howard McMaster, a top-flight public corruption prosecutor, to focus specifically on President Donald Trump, the Wall Street Journal reports.
McMaster was until recently the public corruption ace in fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s office, where he helped put powerful Democratic state House Speaker Sheldon Silver behind bars on felony corruption charges.
Scheiderman spokesman Eric Soufer confirmed the hire and said McMaster would work on civil and criminal investigations, including potential litigation against the Trump administration.
