Apparently the disgraced former governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo is no longer under fire.
It seems Democrats have backed off pursuing “Killa” for what he did to many elderly people in nursing homes.
Who was the Comey who knows Cuomo killed old people but didn’t know his “intent”? According to The New York Post, Cuomo’s Comey is the Manhattan DA.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office has dropped a probe into Andrew Cuomo over allegations he mishandled nursing homes during the initial coronavirus outbreak, the ex-governor’s lawyer said Monday.
Cuomo’s spokesman forwarded a statement from Elkan Abramowitz, an attorney who had repped the governor’s office under Cuomo.
“I was contacted today by the head of the Elder Care Unit from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office who informed me they have closed its investigation involving the Executive Chamber and nursing homes,” Abramowitz said.
“I was told that after a thorough investigation — as we have said all along — there was no evidence to suggest that any laws were broken.”
No laws were broken? How sick is it that no laws were broken when Cuomo sent thousands of older people to their deaths?
Anybody think that Cuomo cut a few deals to get them to back off? Perhaps Cuomo let the DA know that he has “black book” on a few people.
Whatever happened, the Manhattan DA’s office covered their butts.
The Post reported last August that the state Health Department had retained an outside law firm to deal with inquiries regarding nursing home decisions from the Manhattan DA’s Office as well as state Attorney General Letitia James and the US Attorney for the Eastern District.
Wow. State AG and the US Attorney for that district. That’s making sure that nobody will come after Cuomo in the future. Thus, he’s now free to move on with his life.
But the good news didn’t stop there for Cuomo.
Albany County District Attorney David Soares is expected to drop criminal charges of forcible touching against Cuomo. This news comes days before his arraignment, which was scheduled for 1:30P Friday, January 7.
Cuomo was accused of groping former staffer and current state worker Brittany Commisso in 2020. But suddenly as with the other charges, Cuomo is in the clear?
Commisso reportedly wanted to pursue the case. However, in a meeting with prosecutors on Monday they informed her that they intended to drop the charges. Suddenly there was a technicality due to the matter in which the criminal complaint was filed, an individual familiar with the matter told the Times Union.
The complaint was filed by Albany Sheriff Craig Apple’s office in August 2021.
So what gives? Suddenly Cuomo is being cleared of everything? It’s almost like the powers-that-be decided to take Cuomo out of office, then refused to completely destroy him.
