Allegations of Eric Schneiderman abuse went to Trump, attorney says

After multiple reports of physical abuse came out against former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, the National Rifle Association used the details to push its agenda, claiming that the solution to violence against women is more gun ownership.

A lawyer who argued for Trump on the attorney-client privilege matter also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Gleason's information could help explain a cryptic September 2013 tweet from Trump about Schneiderman, the former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, and former Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

According to Gleason, this included contacts between him and Cohen about 'two women that were sexually victimized by Mr. Scheinderman'.

Gleason is now asking the U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood - who is overseeing the handling of materials seized from Cohen's residence, office and hotel room - to place a protective order on any materials pertaining to his conversations with Cohen about the allegations.

Schneiderman sought to sue Trump University in state court in 2012, and filed a complaint the next year in federal court, claiming the for-profit school defrauded students.

Schneiderman resigned this week after The New Yorker magazine reported about four women who accused Schneiderman of assaulting them.

Remember those old tweets from President Trump going after Eric Schneiderman and calling him "worse than Spitzer or Weiner"?

Analysts say renewed sanctions on Iran could prove detrimental to Iran's oil exports, which now total 2.5 million barrels per day. The landmark Iran nuclear deal was reached in 2015 , during the term of Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama.


Gleason wrote that in light of recent disclosures of Cohen banking records by Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for the porn star Cohen paid to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump, he is anxious to keep his 2013 discussions secret. Dunleavy, Gleason said, discussed the allegations with Trump.

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

A third woman contacted his office in 2013, he said, describing a similar story of abuse at the hands of Schneiderman. "Just to be clear: not one source for our story on Schneiderman has any ties to Trump or Michael Cohen".

"During my communications with Mr. Cohen".

Trump settled the Trump University case in late 2016, after he was elected president, for $25 million.

But in his letter to the judge, Gleason said that "during my communications with Mr. Cohen I shared with him certain details of Schneiderman's vile attacks on these two women".

The documents obtained by the government in the raids are now going through a review process to determine what falls under attorney-client privilege and what prosecutors can use going forward.
