BREAKING! Ronan Farrow EXPOSES sexual assault allegations against NY Attorney General!! [UPDATED]

Holy moly this is big. Ronan Farrow, who has single-handedly changed all of American culture by exposing Harvey Weinstein, is now exposing New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

From the New Yorker:

As his prominence as a voice against sexual misconduct has risen, so, too, has the distress of four women with whom he has had romantic relationships or encounters. They accuse Schneiderman of having subjected them to nonconsensual physical violence. All have been reluctant to speak out, fearing reprisal. But two of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women. They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. 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. (Schneiderman’s spokesperson said that he “never made any of these threats.”)

Wow.

A third former romantic partner of Schneiderman’s told Manning Barish and Selvaratnam that he also repeatedly subjected her to nonconsensual physical violence, but she told them that she is too frightened of him to come forward. (The New Yorker has independently vetted the accounts that they gave of her allegations.) A fourth woman, an attorney who has held prominent positions in the New York legal community, says that Schneiderman made an advance toward her; when she rebuffed him, he slapped her across the face with such force that it left a mark that lingered the next day. She recalls screaming in surprise and pain, and beginning to cry, and says that she felt frightened. She has asked to remain unidentified, but shared a photograph of the injury with The New Yorker.

These are huge allegations from someone who is proven to be credible when researching and reporting them. Schneiderman has big problems.

In a statement, Schneiderman said, “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.”

This bombshell is going to reverberate long and deep, and trust me.

UPDATE!!!



None other than Salman Rushdie is vouching for one of the accusers:

The New Yorker cited a high-profile character witness for Ms. Manning Barish — novelist Salman Rushdie.

Mr. Rushdie dated Ms. Manning Barish before Mr. Schneiderman did and remained friends with her. Not only did he say his ex-girlfriend as “a very truthful person in my experience,” but he said she had told him of the abuse at the time.

“She called me and told me he had hit her,” Mr. Rushdie recalled. “She was obviously very upset” and he advised her to leave Mr. Schneiderman.

And just last month, Schneiderman was praising the very news organization that would slap him with sexual assault allegations:

That’s awkward.

And there’s ALWAYS a Trump tweet for everything, right?

Dang.

UPDATE II!!!

Cuomo is going to ask for Schneiderman’s resignation:

There are no more details at the link yet.

If he resigns, apparently there will be no election, his successor will be appointed.

UPDATE II!!!

Here’s his statement:
