The Associated Press reports that Eric Schneiderman,New York's attorney general was a target of Trump's Twitter feed years before the president considered running for office. He was once depicted as a deranged Clockwork Orange character on the cover of a newspaper owned by Trump's son-in-law. And he faced intense anti-Semitic attacks from Trump loyalists on social media that continue even today. Uncowed, this 62-year-old Democrat with little national profile is maneuvering to be a key player in the broader Trump resistance. Backed by one of the nation's largest public law firms, he is positioned to challenge Trump's agenda in ways his Democratic allies in Washington cannot. He has already beaten Trump. The ambitious attorney led a lawsuit against Trump University alleging fraud, ultimately helping to secure a $25 million settlement after the election. Trump had vowed never to settle.Schneiderman also investigated Trump's family foundation, and he played a role recently in organizing legal opposition by Democratic attorneys general to Trump's travel ban. Beyond immigration, Schneiderman's team is preparing to challenge the White House on the environment, civil rights, women's health care, labor rules and consumer protection, among other issues.Schneiderman said it's nothing personal."No matter how rich or powerful you are, if you're hurting people of the state of New York, we will go after you," he said. "I'm concerned about real harm to real people."
