Prosecutor Reportedly Helping Mueller Brags of Using Constant Legal Challenges to Trump Administration; Says Federal Government Is the "Biggest Threat... Right Now"

So of course he's on Team Mueller.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who is reportedly assisting special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, boasted of his successful resistance to the Trump administration in a Tuesday Medium post.

Schneiderman, who could play an essential role in the disposition of Mueller’s investigation, has effectively branded as a public anti-Trump litigator during the president's first year, in keeping with the history of hostility between the two men.

Tuesday's Medium post accompanied a profile of Schneiderman in The New York Times, which noted that the AG lodged 100 legal or administrative challenges to administration policies during Trump's first year in office. Such challenges include lawsuits contesting the travel ban and rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an Obama-era amnesty policy that grants temporary status to illegal immigrants who entered the country as children.

"We try and protect New Yorkers from those who would do them harm," Schneiderman told TheNYT. "The biggest threat to New Yorkers right now is the federal government, so we’re responding to it."

Why, I'm old enough to remember when claiming the federal government was the "biggest threat" was considered Taliban terrorism!

I'm also old enough to remember when dissent was the highest form of patriotism, and then when dissent became the basest form of treason, before polymorphing once again to the highest form of patriotism.

I wonder what accounts for these whipsaw changes?!
