Eric Schneiderman


Woman who accused Eric Schneiderman of abuse

Michelle Manning Barish, who dated former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for more than a year and accused him of abuse, is speak out in her first TV interview. She shared her story with the New Yorker in May claiming he slapped her across the face and choked her. Schneiderman resigned three hours after the story was published. Last week, a prosecutor announced Schneiderman will not face criminal charges after multiple women came forward. Schneiderman said in a statement: "I accept full responsibility for my conduct in my relationships with my accusers." Manning Barish joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss how Schneiderman's campaign money could go towards helping women.


N.Y. AG resigns amid abuse allegations

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said he will resign hours after a report was published Monday in which four women claim he physically abused them. "In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me," Schneiderman wrote in a statement. "While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office's work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018."
