New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has reportedly hired a prosecutor to examine the activities of the Trump administration.
Schneiderman has tapped public-corruption expert Howard McMaster from the office of former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, The Wall Street Journal reported. Bharara was fired by Trump last week even though he was in the middle of a number of investigations, including one allegedly involving stock trades by Trumps Health And Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
Schneiderman spokesman Eric Soufer confirmed McMasters hiring, and told the Journal that McMaster will work on a range of civil and criminal investigations ... including public corruption, and potentially litigation against the Trump administration.
Last month, at a meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General, Schneiderman revealed that his office was discussing strategies and doing research to determine what kind of action could be taken to address concerns about Trumps potential conflicts of interest, and possible violations of the emoluments clause of the Constitution, which prohibits anyone holding a federal office from accepting payments from foreign entities....

Sessions should investigate Schneiderman and his abuse of power.
The Democrats want war.
Maybe he will also investigate the Clinton Foundation....hahahaha
Release the pizzagate pedophile arrests of Schumer and others.
Gee, and I bet he was just as earnest about pursuing Presidential corruption during the Obama years (do I really need to indicate the sarc?).
Investigate Hamas and you’ll catch all guilty parties in this...including the leaking moles.
Preet Bahara was the US attorney who had to be fired by Sessions, he was in charge of the Clinton-Huma-Hillary investigations that he’d been slow-walking so naturally he had to be pushed. This is payback, no doubt. He’s dirty.
NY AG selective, politicized prosecution and abuse of power has been a path to Democrat reputation-building in NY State Politics since forever.
Cuomo did it, Spitzer did it, Schneiderman is doing it in spades.
Kinda like they did to Governor Sarah Palin.
You mean Ham-ass?
The democrats are AT WAR, most people on our side and perhaps even in the administration have not figured that out yet. If they win the House at any point during Trump’s presidency he will be impeached. They play hardball, we play like sissies most of the time. Except Trump, but he can’t do it all.
Brian Frosh, the AG of Maryland hired five attorneys to prepare lawsuits against Trump.
Maryland WAS in the running to get the new FBI Headquarters and its 11000 jobs.
Key word: WAS
I wonder who’s money is being used here?
Took a negative situation around 1990 of about $200 million in the hole
Turned it into between three and ten billion by 2016
Brings in his projects on time and under budget
It’s not that he doesn’t fail on some projects, but that he keeps on trying
He is dedicated to winning
His real estate firm is sought for management serves from around the world
He hired women for top management positions long before it was popular, in the 1980s...
Has a lovely wife
Has some of the best kids around...
Shares many of our ideals...
Appealed to the public to let him have a chance to change things in the U. S. A.
The public hired him
Yep, string him up...
The Rats lost everywhere.
They are now reducced to resorting to lawfare using specious claims by State AG’s.

You are right. He needs help, but only he can nominate/appoint that help. I realize that he is working hard, but he needs to keep up the pressure. He needs to delegate trustworthy people to go out and recruit ideological matches for his policies. Then he needs to purge and replace the executive branch with his loyalists.
