In March, Cuomo directed Schneiderman to examine why Vance had failed to bring harassment and assault charges against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein regarding to a 2015 incident with an Italian model.

"We have never seen anything as despicable as what we've seen right here ..."

Before being sworn in as acting attorney general yesterday, Underwood, 73, was the NY state solicitor general.
