NEW YORK/WASHINGTON New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has been looking into investments of U.S. President Donald Trump and other matters related to the Trump administration, on Monday said he has hired two lawyers with federal government experience.
Howard Master previously worked for Bharara as deputy chief of the criminal division in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY.
Last week another letter to the attorney general asked him to investigate Trump Organization dealings in Azerbaijan that "may have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act" and US sanctions against Iran.
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has hired two experienced federal attorneys, one of whom is steeped in investigating public corruption and the other in federal law as Schneiderman plans to try to combat President Donald Trump's administration on several fronts.
Bharara was sacked earlier this month by U.S. Attorney General after refusing to submit his requested resignation. "He will provide the office with essential knowledge and expertise regarding both important areas of federal law as well as the internal workings of Congress and federal agencies".
Texas company recalling 73000 pounds of boneless beef
The company said the problem was discovered when food inspectors found a sample of their beef tested positive for E. coli. Vigorous rehydration and other supportive care is the usual treatment; antibiotic treatment is generally not recommended.
The former prosecutor, known for his aggressive pursuit of the Wall Street bankers responsible for the 2008 financial crisis, was investigating the stock trades of Trump's newly-appointed Health and Human Services secretary, Tom Price, at the time of his removal, ProPublica reported Friday.
The White House did not immediately respond to the Journal's request for comment.
Schneiderman last month told reporters in Washington that his office was researching Trump's business investments.
Interest mounted recently about Schneiderman's next move against Trump, after having successfully sued Trump University, resulting in a $25 million settlement in favor of the plaintiffs that Trump had initially vowed would never happen. In November, the foundation filed forms saying it violated a ban on so-called self-dealing.
In 2013, Mr Schneiderman brought a lawsuit against Mr Trump over fraud claims relating to his property development training company, Trump University.
