New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says his office is cooperating with a federal probe into the state’s recently shuttered anti-corruption commission, but he will not talk about it.

Schneiderman was questioned by reporters at a public appearance Friday in Schenectady. The attorney general last year deputized commissioners appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to investigate pay-for-play politics in Albany.

Schneiderman declined to say whether the governor’s office interfered with the commission, whether his office would separately investigate or whether he was subpoenaed by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Schneiderman also was asked about his public lunch this week with Bharara. Schneiderman offered little beyond saying it was “delicious.”

The governor’s office has denied wrongdoing, saying it offered advice but didn’t interfere in the commission’s choice of targets.
