Manhattan’s District Attorney’s Office is launching a criminal investigation into physical abuse allegations against former state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
A spokesman for the DA announced the probe Monday night, just hours after reports surfaced saying Schneiderman physically abused four women during relationships.
Two of the women said the Democrat hit and choked them repeatedly, while another woman said she was violently slapped.
Schneiderman has been an outspoken critic of President Trump, and a big supporter of the “Me Too” campaign.
The Democratic Party claims to be the last bastion for women’s rights, but their track record says otherwise.
The now former Attorney General of New York has become the latest in a string of hypocritical so-called male feminists to be outed as a suspected sexual deviant and abuser of women.
What’s stranger than the irony of yet another “Me Too” champion turned serial-sexual predator is the fact that President Trump predicted this turn of events five years ago.
In a tweet, the president displayed impressive foresight by comparing Schneiderman to fellow disgraced New York politicians Elliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner.
Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone - next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner
The feud continued for several years while Schneiderman sued President Trump as part of his campaign against prominent Wall Street capitalists.
President Trump went on a Twitter tirade against the attorney general, who he repeatedly insisted was corrupt.
In one instance, he even accused Schneiderman of wearing eyeliner.
In April, Schneiderman launched another attack at the president by appealing Congress for the right to bypass presidential pardons. However, before he could get the bill passed, Schneiderman was blind-sided by a series of accusations published by the New Yorker on Monday.
Four women have come out to accuse the former AG of drunkenly beating and choking them in bed.
One woman even said the attorney general told her he would have her followed and tap her phone among other threats.
Schneiderman quickly resigned just a few hours after the accusations became public.
In a statement, he denied the damning claims and announced he would leave office on Tuesday.
Now that the nation can see what President Trump has known for years, perhaps people will wake up to the disturbing trend of predator’s hiding behind liberal sentiments like the “Me Too” movement.
Aside from sexual perversion, the one thing Spitzer, Weiner and Schneiderman have in common is their outspoken support of women’s rights.
Today I celebrate —for my daughter and every woman in New York and across the country who deserves an equal playing field.
I am a proud feminist and I am committed to using the privilege of my office to advance equality—as every elected official should be.

With Schneiderman gone, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood is set to fill in as attorney general of New York until state lawmakers elect a permanent replacement.
