Cuomo Names Special Prosecutor In Case Of Disgraced AG Schneiderman

Cuomo Names Special Prosecutor In Case Of Disgraced AG Schneiderman

In court documents, Attorney Peter Gleason says some documents contained discussions with Mr. Cohen concerning two women that were allegedly victimized by Eric Schneiderman.

Gleason told the Times Friday that Trump's cryptic attack, with references to scandal-plagued NY politicos, was directly prompted by his conversation with Mr. Cohen. "The extent of Mr. Cohen memorializing any of our communications is unknown", he writes.

A short while later, Gleason claims he received a call from Michael Cohen, and he reiterated the story of the "vile attacks" to Cohen.

But he said the information may have made its way to Trump "because he was involved with that dispute over his school with Schneiderman that they realized was trumped up and that they were offended he was playing holier than thou when he turns out to be a pretty serious pervert".

Dunleavy said Gleason called him Thursday about the proposed letter to Wood, "but he didn't check with me" to confirm that the former columnist had actually told Trump about it, Dunleavy told CNBC.

Days later, Trump, who at the time was being sued by Schneiderman over Trump University, tweeted about Schneiderman - saying he would be the next politician to fall from grace. Lawyers for Cohen, Trump, the Trump organization and Avenatti all have expressed concerns about files that could be subject to attorney-client privilege being seen by prosecutors investigating Cohen.

And with Deadpool 2 releasing on May 16, Solo: A Star Wars Story will likely witness a challenge at the ticket counters. Star Wars franchise's newest film titled Solo: A Star Wars Story had its world premiere on Thursday in Los Angeles.

He also told the Times that he had told elected officials about Schneiderman's behavior almost five years ago, and he said that the two women who came to him are not among the four who talked to the New Yorker. He is the focus of a criminal investigation in the Southern District of NY into whether he violated campaign-finance laws or committed bank fraud. Dunleavy proposed raising the matter with Donald Trump. He has not returned a request for comment but he did reveal more details this afternoon in an interview with The New York Times.

Schneiderman resigned earlier this week, hours after The New Yorker reported on the allegations of nonconsensual physical misconduct against him from four women.

A day before Cohen wrote the court, Avenatti released a report that tallied $4.4 million in suspicious payments to Cohen since 2016, including $500,000 from Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg.

Gleason offered his surprising account in a letter to Kimba M. Wood, the Manhattan federal judge who is overseeing an ongoing investigation into Cohen.

Avenatti is seeking to be heard on a regular basis by Wood on the issue of the confidentiality of some of Cohen's files. Or as some are speculating, removing Schneiderman from the scene because Schneiderman had promised to go after people Trump pardoned as to federal crimes.

After he was elected president, Trump settled the Trump University litigation.
