LIVID IN NY: Lawmakers Call for Cuomo’s Resignation as Nursing Home Scandal Spirals Out of Control

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.15.21

Another New York Democratic legislator is calling for a “full investigation” into Governor Andrew Cuomo’s spiraling nursing home scandal; saying “politics should never come before peoples’ lives.”

“Politics should never come before people’s lives. The Secretary to the Governor’s remarks are beyond troubling and warrant a full investigation,” Delgado tweeted Sunday. “Thousands of New Yorkers lost family in nursing homes to COVID-19, a pain made worse by the inability to comfort their loved ones in their final hours. They deserve answers and accountability.”

 

“We were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation,” Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa told the NY lawmakers, according to the New York Post, which first reported the discussion.

COVERING FOR CUOMO: Hosts at MSNBC, CNN Totally IGNORE Cuomo Nursing Home Bombshell

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.12.21

Primetime anchors and guests at CNN and MSNBC completely ignored New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s escalating nursing home scandal Thursday night; despite a bombshell report he intentionally hid damaging statistics from federal authorities.

“A top Cuomo aide to told leading state Democratic lawmakers that the administration had withheld data on COVID-19 deaths at nursing homes to avoid federal scrutiny, according to a bombshell New York Post report. The revelation prompted condemnations and even talk of impeachment in Albany, the state’s capital. Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., wants the Department of Justice to open an obstruction of justice investigation. However, CNN and MSNBC didn’t feel it was newsworthy enough to crack their primetime coverage,” reports Fox News.

Transcripts show the words “nursing homes” and “Andrew Cuomo” were not mentioned even once between the hours of 8 and 11pm on both MSNBC and CNN.

“We were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation,” a senior aide to Cuomo admitted during a teleconference with lawmakers.

“The second most powerful person in state government and top aide to Gov. Cuomo admitted on video to the premeditated and willful violation of state laws and what clearly amounts to federal obstruction of justice,” said state GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy. “Andrew Cuomo has abused his power and destroyed the trust placed in the office of governor. Prosecution and impeachment discussions must begin right away.”

BLAME GAME: NY Governor Blames ‘Staffers’ for Bringing Deadly CoVID Pandemic into Nursing Homes

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.14.20

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo continued to deflect criticism of his handling of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic in recent days; telling reporters that “staffers” brought the contagion into nursing homes.

“We never told a nursing home: ‘You have to accept a CoVID positive person.’ The hospitals were never overwhelmed. We were never in a situation where we had to have a nursing home accept them,” said Cuomo.

“The law is exactly the opposite… We never got to the point where we had a scarcity of beds. People think you’re supposed to believe the president — they are very good at spreading misinformation and it was mean and it was cruel,” he added.

“We’ve done a full study of it, the virus came into nursing homes from the staff!” said the Governor.
