More than most, Eric Schneiderman understands the risks of taking on Donald Trump. New York's attorney general was a target of Trump's Twitter feed years before the president's assaults on "Little Marco" Rubio or "Lyin' Ted" Cruz.Trump called Schneiderman a "lightweight" on Twitter back in 2013 when the attorney general was investigating Trump University.Schneiderman is quick to point out that he has already beaten Trump.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."Eric, who leads a very large public law firm, he brings significant resources to bear," Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson said.But others note he has struggled to build the same national profile as recent New York attorneys general like Eliot Spitzer and Andrew Cuomo, both hard-charging Democrats who took on Wall Street and eventually became governor.In style perhaps more than substance, the silver-haired Schneiderman doesn't match the profile of some of New York's more street-hardened politicians.At an event catered by a company that hires only refugees, Schneiderman reminded the packed hotel lounge that New York has been a city of immigrants dating back to the 1600s.
