Trump takes aim at NY Attorney General

Celebrity developer Donald Trump is pursuing two ethics complaints against state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The complaints accuse Schneiderman of misconduct. Trump says the Democratic attorney general solicited campaign donations from Trump’s daughter even as his office investigated the media mogul’s “Trump University.”

In August, Schneiderman sued Trump and his business school for $40 million, accusing it of ripping off students.

Trump, who says he’s considering a Republican run for governor, claims Schneiderman used the investigation to wring out campaign contributions from Trump’s daughter, Ivanka.

A Schneiderman spokesman denied any wrongdoing.
