Before he even announced he was running for president, Donald Trump predicted the downfall of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman all the way back in 2013.
Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone – next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2013
Comparing Schneiderman to disgraced former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner and former Democratic New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, both of whom resigned from their respective positions after sex scandals, Trump claimed that Schneiderman was worse than both of them.
According to a bombshell report published by The New Yorker Monday, four women have come forward and accused Schneiderman of physical violence and death threats. The women claimed that he slapped and choked them, threatened to kill them if they broke up with him and even warned them that he could have their phones tapped.
Schneiderman, who has presented himself as a supporter of the #MeToo movement, gave a statement denying the assaults. “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 nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”
