  • Flashback: Will This Man Take Down Donald Trump? (Schneiderman article from 2/2017)

    Politico ^ | February 03, 2017 | DAVID FREEDLANDER
    “I like you. You and me, we’re going to be best friends.” It is early January, and Eric Schneiderman is sitting in his 25th-floor office above Lower Manhattan, doing his best Donald Trump impression, puckering his lips into a duck face, scrunching up his nose and lowering his voice into something that resembles the president’s outer-borough growl. Schneiderman is recalling his meeting with Trump in 2010. Back then, Schneiderman was running for attorney general of New York, and Trump was still in his pre-birther, reality TV host phase. Trump had donated money to one of Schneiderman’s opponents in the Democratic...

    You’re Johnny Pockets Tierney, and the good news is you’ll never have to set foot in Lynn again. Finally, we have an answer to the age-old question: Just how corrupt does a politician have to be for the voters to throw him out of office in Massachusetts? You’re John Tierney, and the Democratic voters kicked you down the stairs like you were Peter Torkildsen, or Nicky Pockets Mavroules, or Mike Harrington, who was a rogue before it was vogue. Come to think of it, this is the way congressmen from the 6th District always go out, with a toe tag...

    **SNIP** While Tierney refused to answer questions at the event, FOX 25's Sharman Sacchetti asked Pelosi about why she chose not to wait until the completion of the probe to appear alongside the Congressman. "Our timing is about the timing that works for the American people," Pelosi replied. "To create good paying jobs for them and not to worry about what's happening in Washington D.C., but to meet the needs of what is happening to people out here. Tierney has been under fire since his wife pleaded guilty in 2010 to helping file false tax returns for her brother, who...

    Republicans may have their best chance of winning a Massachusetts congressional seat in nearly two decades with Richard R. Tisei pulling six percentage points ahead of Representative John F. Tierney in a new Boston Globe poll. Tisei, a former state senator from Wakefield, leads Tierney, a Salem Democrat, 37 percent to 31 percent among likely voters, with 30 percent undecided. The high percentage of undecided voters reflects the electorate’s lack of knowledge of Tisei as well as Tierney’s relative unpopularity, even among members of his own party, said Andrew E. Smith, the director of the University of New Hampshire Survey...

    SALEM (MA)— Moments after learning he’ll spend the next three years in prison, Daniel Eremian unloaded on his brother-in-law, Congressman John Tierney, calling the Salem Democrat “the biggest liar in the world.” “He knew everything that was going on,” said Eremian, 62, the former owner of Brodie’s Pub in Peabody who now lives in Boca Raton, Fla. “He sat in the boxes with bookies at Fenway Park.” He called Tierney’s claims to the contrary “hogwash.” Tierney, through his spokeswoman, Kathryn Prael, denied Eremian’s claims in a statement earlier tonight. “Today, clearly bitter at having lost his case and harboring old...

    BOSTON (AP) — A brother-in-law of Massachusetts U.S. Rep. John Tierney has been found guilty of racketeering in a federal court trial. Daniel Eremian was accused of helping operate an illegal offshore gambling operation. The jury that convicted him and a co-defendant of racketeering Monday acquitted them of some related charges they faced. Patrice Tierney, the congressman’s wife, testified during the trial that she and her husband didn’t know that another brother, Robert Eremian, allegedly was running the illegal online gambling operation in Antigua. She said she believed he was a software consultant. She pleaded guilty last year to aiding...

    A tense, argumentative Patrice Tierney testified under oath today that she still believes her fugitive brother Robert Eremian is a legitimate, albeit highly paid, software consultant in Antigua — and not the kingpin behind a multimillion dollar gambling empire that prosecutors claim. He’s very good with software,” the 60-yer-old wife of U.S. Rep. John F. Tierney told the jury in the federal racketeering and money laundering trial of her other brother, former Florida restauranteur Daniel Eremian, 61. Congressman Tierney, a Salem Democrat, did not accompany his wife of 14 years to U.S. District Court in Boston. Patrice Tierney, a wedding...

    A federal judge today sentenced Patrice Tierney, the wife of Democratic US Representative John F. Tierney, to 30 days in jail for aiding and abetting the filing of false tax returns. "There must be an actual sanction," US District Judge William G. Young said in imposing the sentence, noting the importance of protecting the tax system, which depends on citizens' voluntary compliance. Patrice Tierney must begin serving her sentence on Feb. 28.

    In an apparent move to distance Deval Patrick from U.S. Rep. John Tierney’s family troubles, the congressman’s newly convicted wife was removed yesterday as co-chair of a deep-pockets fund-raiser North Shore Democrats are holding in the governor’s honor Oct. 19. At a function in Waltham last night, Patrick dodged questions from the Herald as to whether he pressured Patrice Tierney to back out or if the Democratic Party now thinks of her as a liability. “I think it’s her decision and a totally understandable one,” Patrick said. “I don’t know the whole story, but it sounds like a very, very...

    "His campaign under siege after his wife's admission this week to falsifying federal tax returns, Congressman John Tierney said Friday he knew very little about her management of a bank account full of illegal gambling profits. "I couldn't tell you if there was $5 going through there or $500. It was her family's stuff," he said." "The kids, all teenagers, were a "handful." Their mother was also away in Florida receiving treatment for health issues. Besides Patrice, a young au pair was there for the kids. "She was part of the problem," Tierney said of the au pair.
