Last December, New York Attorney General Schneiderman wrote: When they go low, we go local, outlining a strategy for fighting Trump through state voting reforms.
He’s been described as Trump's No. 1 enemy. He’s fearless, leading opposition to Trump’s travel ban in the face of vile anti-Semitic attacks:
‘‘No matter how rich or powerful you are, if you’re hurting people of the state of New York, we will go after you,’’ he said. ‘‘I’m concerned about real harm to real people.’’
No matter whom he fires, Trump can't escape the states.
Presidential pardons can’t apply to state prosecutions. That means state attorneys general, especially New York’s Eric Schneiderman, Washington, D.C.’s Karl Racine, and Delaware’s Matthew Denn should think about canceling their summer vacation plans. (Yes, Delaware. Go Google “quo warranto,” see this old post, or better yet continue reading.) And maybe they should open up some office space for Mueller and his A-Team when he inevitably gets fired for getting closer and closer to hard evidence of serious crimes.
Schneiderman is already investigating Trump-related matters, including the Eric Trump Foundation and Paul Manafort.
Manafort’s financial dealings are also being looked into by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr, both Democrats, probing his dealings over potential fraud and money laundering claims.
Schneiderman’s Attorney General's Office Press Releases show he has been fighting Trump and ACA repeal from the beginning. For example, he joined other AG’s to show Trump: We Stand Ready To Defend New York's Dreamers.
And he will bring a lawsuit if Trumpcare becomes law.
attacks on Planned Parenthood would create an undue burden on women’s fundamental constitutional right to reproductive health care, while placing unconstitutional conditions on federal dollars that fund vital services like breast cancer screenings, STD tests, and more. Meanwhile, the Faso-Collins amendment represents a cynical ploy to meddle in New York’s Medicaid funding system, requiring massive state tax increases to offset billions in lost federal funds
New York has the ideal smart, fearless Attorney General who can complement Mueller’s efforts and step in if (when?) Trump fires Mueller.
