Schneiderman has been praised and endorsed by pro-abortion groups such as NARAL and he took his abortion support to the attorney general's office, often speaking out on the right of women to control their own bodies. Selvaratnam says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him. And Trump has spared no counterattacks against Schneiderman.

Dermot Shea, the chief of detectives for the New York Police Department, said investigators would interview the women in detail but he couldn't say yet whether any charges would result.
Jennifer Cunningham, Mr Schneiderman's ex-wife, released a statement on Monday saying: "I've known Eric for almost 35 years as a husband, father, and friend". "They haven't lost any of the lawyers who are working on the cases". From 1998 to 2001 she was the Acting Solicitor General and Principal Deputy Solicitor General of the United States.
That upper chamber complicates matters. Senate Republicans have declined to participate. However, one member, Sen.
Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen also said that his office was committed to working with the New York Attorney General's office going forward.
Schneiderman's denials, however, were not enough for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who called for Schneiderman's resignation within mere hours of the news breaking.
