Bad news piles up for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.
This scandal has all hell breaking loose.
And a close Joe Biden ally just got implicated in this bombshell criminal cover-up.
For months, the so-called “mainstream” media lauded Andrew Cuomo as a straight-shooting truth teller whose brutal honesty and comforting press conferences led New York through the coronavirus pandemic.
Now that the election is over and reporters don’t need to put Cuomo on a pedestal to attack Donald Trump, Cuomo’s usefulness to the left is over and his former allies are blowing the whistle on the truth about Cuomo’s disastrous coronavirus response.
Last month, New York Attorney General Letitia James released a report revealing that Cuomo’s administration hid the true death tolls in nursing homes by at least 50 percent.
Cuomo hid the true death count—at least 15,000 seniors in nursing homes died from coronavirus—because Cuomo feared criminal prosecution over his order mandating nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients.
Governor Cuomo’s top aide reportedly told Democrat state party leaders that the reason the administration did not turnover documents about seniors to the legislature or the Department of Justice was over fears they could help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and be used as evidence in a federal criminal investigation.
The New York Post exclusively reports:
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”
In addition to attacking Cuomo’s fellow Democratic governors, DeRosa said, Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”
“And basically, we froze,” she told the lawmakers on the call.
“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, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”
DeRosa added: “That played a very large role into this.”
DeRosa’s admission is the smoking gun in a case that critics contend now looks like an obstruction of justice case against Cuomo and his inner circle.
Both Republicans and Democrats condemned Cuomo’s corrupt and potentially illegal cover-up of the nursing home debacle that was a tragedy of Cuomo’s own making.
Democrat Assemblyman Ron Kim of Queens—whose uncle is believed to have died in a nursing home back in April—ripped DeRosa for her feeble apology.
“It’s not enough how contrite they are with us,” Kim told the New York Post. “They need to show that to the public and the families — and they haven’t done that.”
Cuomo is now facing calls to have his emergency powers stripped away, censure and impeachment.
If all Cuomo pays in this blowup is a political price, many New Yorkers will find that an insufficient penalty.
Millions of Americans believe there needs to be criminal investigations and charges.
