NEW YORK/WASHINGTON New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has been looking into investments of U.S. President Donald Trump and other matters related to the Trump administration, on Monday said he has hired two lawyers with federal government experience. Haren had worked for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, where he has been chief counsel to the ranking Democrat, Sen Dianne Feinstein, of California.
Attorneys Howard Master and Eric Haren were recently hired to the position, according The Daily News.
The Journal reports that Howard Master will work on issues connected to the White House, and take on high-profile cases of public corruption.
Master previously served under former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who was sacked last week after refusing the president's order to resign along with 46 others appointed by former President Barack Obama.
The New York attorney general is also said to be investigating whether to pursue litigation relating to allegations the US President is breaching the US Constitution by continuing to receive money from foreign governments via his hotels and properties, which are often used by foreign state organisations for functions or office space.
Two of Master's top priorities, however, will be taking on the Trump administration and holding other federal government accountable, a source told The News. He was among 46 USA attorneys asked to resign who were holdovers from Barack Obama's administration. He would act as senior enforcement counsel within the state office, the Wall Street Journal first reported Sunday.

Schneiderman has a history with Trump, including a fraud lawsuit in 2013 over the billionaire's real estate school, Trump University.
Trump fired Bharara, along with 46 other USA attorneys, on March 11.
Schneiderman is a vocal critic of Trump's policies, recently condemning Trump's executive order on scaling back the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Water Rule and filing lawsuits against his executive orders banning entry from several Muslim majority countries and halting US acceptance on refugees.
Master will lead "complex affirmative investigations and litigation as well as advise on important investigations and prosecutions in the criminal division", Schneiderman wrote.
The group Free Speech for People appealed to Schneiderman in February, asking him to revoke a business charter that allows the Trump Organization, the president's business empire, to continue to operate in NY, indicating possible illegal activities.
