New York AG Eric Schneiderman promised to bring down EPA’s transparency plan hours before a slew of domestic abuse charges brought down the climate crusading lawman.
Schneiderman, a Democrat and fierce opponent of President Donald Trump’s climate agenda, planned on targeting EPA’s transparency in science plan, the former AG said Monday afternoon. That was before four women accused him of abusing them during sex romps.
“#BREAKING: I’m leading eight AGs against Scott Pruitt’s absurd plan to have the @EPA limit the science it uses to make decisions about our public health and our environment,” Schneiderman wrote in a tweet less than four hours before his career ended.
Four women are accusing Schneiderman of subjecting them to nonconsensual physical violence and threatening to kill them if they ever broke up with him, among other abusive behavior, The New Yorker reported on Monday.
Michelle Manning Barish was in a relationship with Schneiderman for nearly two years before he allegedly called her a whore during a drunken stupor, slapped her across the face and the ear, and held her down and choked her, she said. Three other women accused the New York lawman of similar actions.
Schneiderman has been involved in several lawsuits targeting ExxonMobil, Trump, as well as the president’s climate agenda. It is not yet certain what will come of the global warming crusader’s litany of legal pursuit.
