Eric Schneiderman is the attorney general of New York. Yet he seems to spend almost all of his time on partisan politics, attacking Trump and Republicans. Are people in New York really OK with this?
The Hill reports:
NY attorney general has taken action against Trump, GOP 100 times in Trump’s first year
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has taken legal action against the Trump administration or congressional Republicans 100 times during President Trump’s first year in office, according to The New York Times, continuing a long-running rivalry between the two.
Schneiderman has sued the administration to block all three of President Trump’s bans on travel and to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and sued the Federal Communications Commission for its decision to end net neutrality, an Obama-era internet regulation.
“We try and protect New Yorkers from those who would do them harm,” Schneiderman told the newspaper. “The biggest threat to New Yorkers right now is the federal government, so we’re responding to it.”
Schneiderman, who is in his seventh year as New York’s top attorney, raised tensions with Trump when a judge approved his $25 million settlement in November for a fraud case against the now-defunct Trump University.
When does this guy find time to do his actual job?
