No Deal For the US and #NotYouToo

As of 2pm today the United States is no longer in the Iranian Nuclear Deal. With Trumps with-drawl comes a reimposition of economic sanctions that had been lifted as part of the U.S. commitments made in the deal. It didn't bring calm, it didn't bring peace and it never will". Trump's removal of the US from the Iranian deal was a campaign promise he can now cross off his list. 

At 7pm last night, the New Yorker reported allegations from multiple women against New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Not surprisingly Schneiderman denied the allegations with a statement saying, "In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross". Three hours after the story was released, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo called for Schneiderman to step down; "My personal opinion is that, given the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article, I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve as attorney general". By 10pm Schneiderman had resigned as New York's Attorney General. 

While in office Schneiderman had taken a vocal role in the #MeToo movement. Back in February of this year Schneiderman filed a lawsuit in the State Supreme Court in Manhattan against the Weinstein Company studio and its fraternal founders. The lawsuit was routed in allegations that they repeatedly violated state and city laws barring gender discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual abuse and coercion. After making a career standing up to and fighting against violence towards women, Schneider seems to have put himself in the exact same position of the men he condemned.
