The New York attorney general has hired a top public-corruption prosecutor to focus on President Donald Trump.

Attorney General Eric Scheiderman, a Democrat, tapped prosecutor Howard Master to serve as senior enforcement counsel and work on cases involving Trump and his administration, as well as other high-level public corruption cases, reported the Wall Street Journal.

Master previously served under former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who was fired last week after refusing the presidentís order to resign along with 46 others appointed by former President Barack Obama.

Scheiderman sued Trump in 2013 for fraud related to his Trump University real estate courses, which the president agreed to settle for $25 million shortly after his election.

4. The system functioning

Always good to see that there are still checks and balances in the system, especially considering the orange fascist's efforts to break the law with no consequences.
