Gov. Cuomo Is Now Under A New Spotlight, State Legislator Is Exploring Impeachment & Criminal Charges
The media swooned over Gov. Cuomo, Hollywood gave him an Emmy, he wrote a book about how great he is and now he is falling like a hot rock. It turns out it doesn’t matter how partisan you are, when you coverup how many grandmothers died under your policy people get mad.
Cuomo aide, Melissa DeRosa blew New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s cover after she revealed that Cuomo’s administration covered up the amount of COVID nursing home deaths because it could “be used against us” by the Justice Department.
Now members of the State Legislature are beginning to consider if Gov. Andrew Cuomo could be impeached.
“We’ve been calling for subpoenas and a hearing for quite a while,” Michael Montesano, a Republican member of the state’s Oversight and Investigations Committee said. “This news of the last several days is extremely troubling to me and I’m going to be asking today for his resignation and I’m also going to be asking the legislature to look into, to explore filing articles of impeachment against the governor if he doesn’t resign.”
“This is now criminal,” Montesano, a Republican who represents District-15, said. “The governor wants to talk about how our attacks on him are political. They’re not political, this we’ve had an inkling all the while that they were covering stuff up, and now she[DeRosa] admitted that she covered stuff up because she knew the Department of Justice has an active investigation going on of the nursing home problems which a lot of us in the legislature, especially in the minority, requested that they do.
“She’s obstructing an investigation. This is what makes it even more troubling,” he added.
Montesano believes DeRosa came forward because she knows that there is an ongoing federal investigation and she is protecting herself.
In a report released in January New York Attorney General Letitia James found that Cuomo’s Department of Health underreported COVID-19 deaths by as much as 50%.
It is now estimated (this is horrible) that up to 15,049 senior living nursing home facilities passed away because of Cuomo’s COVID policy.
New York lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want Cuomo to resign however, many lawmakers believe he is too “arrogant to think about doing that. He’s for himself, not for these people,” Montesano said.
Which is why lawmakers are exploring impeachment.
New York’s AG Letitia James is hellbent on convicting Trump and has launched numerous probes into his businesses in the State however, she has ignored launching any criminal investigations into her Governor who policy devastated the people of New York.
