Barbara Underwood, the solicitor general of NY, is acting as Schneiderman's temporary replacement.
Schneiderman, who has resigned, has implied his conduct was either welcomed by the women, or was not as they described.
"I commend his victims for stepping forward and making their voices heard, the courage they displayed will prevent other women from experiencing horrendous abuse at the hands of Mr. Schneiderman".
He is now facing a criminal investigation by the same district attorney's office looking into Weinstein's behavior.
Bee, 48, had invited Schneiderman onto her show last fall where she profusely praised him, calling him a "hero" and comparing him to Spider-Man.
"This was activity that happened, in many cases, fully clothed, outside of a sexual context, during arguments", Farrow said.
The war of words between Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. escalated Wednesday, with a letter from Cuomo's counsel, Alphonso David, that hammered home the reasons why Cuomo asked the attorney general's office to look into Vance's handling of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations in the first place. "I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross".

"After I found out that other women had been abused by Attorney-General Schneiderman in a similar manner many years before me, I wondered, who's next, and knew something needed to be done", Selvaratnam said in a statement to the AP.
"It is a sad day for the state of NY, but no one is above the law", said Assemblyman Billy Jones, D-Chateaugay.
Schneiderman, a former state senator, became attorney general in 2010 and had been running for re-election this year.
"The Senate can not turn a blind eye to an act of domestic violence", declared Schneiderman, who went on to co-author a law that made choking someone a crime of its own. "People who want to be attorney general in both parties can put themselves on early display".
And in marking the 20th anniversary of the federal Violence Against Women Act in 2014, he noted that "violence against women remains a prevalent and risky problem across our nation".
