Liberal hero, Governor Andrew Cuomo, is finding himself in some real trouble
At the height of the pandemic Gov. Cuomo scrambled for a medical facility to house the increasing number of COVID-positive patients. He mistakingly chose nursing homes. As a result, thousands of his state’s most vulnerable citizens met their untimely death without any acknowledgment of wrongdoing. Now Cuomo will have to answer to U.S. district attorneys and even the FBI.
According to local news, the investigations are in their “early stages” but are focusing primarily on Cuomo’s nursing home policy, which enabled thousands of deaths, most of which completely unreported by the Cuomo administration.
The governor’s office acknowledged to the Times-Union that there is a Department of Justice investigation but insisted that there was no news to report on the subject.
“The Department of Justice has been looking into this for months. There’s nothing new here,” one of Cuomo’s lackeys said to a local reporter. “We will continue cooperating in any way possible .”
As the pandemic began to spread in New York, Cuomo immediately issued an order forcing nursing homes and other adult care facilities to house patients recovering from the virus, even while still testing positive. Two months later the Cuomo administration ended the order, but only after thousands of elderly New Yorkers became exposed to the virus, many of them perishing.
Mainstream media has largely ignored this deadly scandal, protect the liberal Cuomo at all costs. However, recently Cuomo’s luck has taken a turn for the worse.
Just recently a former aide close to Cuomo met with state Democrat lawmakers in a closed-door meeting to blow the whistle on what really happened behind the scenes. She told the group that Cuomo’s administration intentionally withheld nursing home data to hopefully bypass the federal government’s inquiries.
“Basically, we froze because then 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 and what we start saying was going to be used against us and we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation,” DeRosa allegedly told lawmakers.
