NEW YORK (WABC) -- A top aide to New York Attorney General Letitia James has stepped down amid a sexual harassment probe.

James confirms Chief of Staff Ibrahim Khan resigned after what she called an impartial investigation.

The New York Times reports Khan was accused of inappropriate touching and unwanted kissing by at least one woman.

Ironically, it was James who investigated sexual harassment allegations against former Governor Andrew Cuomo that lead to his resignation.

This news comes a month after former President Donald Trump announced he was suing James.

Trump's lawsuit says that she has abused her position as AG "to pursue a relentless, pernicious, public, and unapologetic crusade against President Trump, a resident of Palm Beach County, Florida, with the stated goal of destroying him personally, financially, and politically."
