New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Friday that he is being investigated for the state’s recently shuttered anti-corruption commission and his office is cooperating.
Schneiderman last year deputized commissioners appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to investigate Albany. He declined to say whether the governor’s office interfered with the commission, whether his office would separately investigate or whether he was subpoenaed by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.
Schneiderman, a political foe of Cuomo, a fellow Democrat, also was asked about his public lunch this week with Bharara. Schneiderman offered little beyond saying it was “delicious.”
