A massive scandal is upending the Democrat Party.
It’s threatening the political viability of one of the party’s biggest names heading into the 2022 midterm elections.
Trey Gowdy obliterated a leading Democrat with this brutal smack down.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is watching his world crumble around him.
New details continue to emerge about his administration’s cover-up of the true number of coronavirus deaths in nursing homes after Cuomo signed a March 25 order mandating those facilities take in COVID-19 patients.
Cuomo’s administration initially claimed just 6,000 seniors died from coronavirus in nursing homes only for the state attorney general to release a report revealing that the true number was more than twice that.
Democrats then accused Cuomo of obstruction of justice after a bombshell New York Post report that Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa admitted the administration hid that information because the Department of Justice may have used it to prosecute administration officials.
Appearing on “Special Report” with Bret Baier, former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy blasted Cuomo for a “dark triad” of scandals.
“Bret, it’s the dark triad of political scandal as you have a lethal public policy, you have these psychotic calls to people that dare to criticize you, you admit that you manufactured evidence for your own personal political gain,” Gowdy stated. “You have bipartisan outrage.”
Gowdy added that Cuomo only dug a deeper hole with a bizarre press conference where Cuomo blamed nursing home staff and patient family members for bringing coronavirus into facilities.
Cuomo also claimed the only mistake he made was not yelling at his critics and calling them liars.
“This creates a void,” Governor Cuomo whined. “And conspiracy theories and politics and rumors fill that void and you can’t allow inaccurate information to go unanswered.”
Gowdy also took the media to task for half-hearted coverage and then quickly dropping the story.
“You got the worst defense anyone’s ever heard, which was ‘I was not aggressive enough in defending my lies,’” Gowdy continued. “The same media that lavished praise on him and wanted him to run for president, wanted him to be the AG. Where are they? Who’s covering it?”
Even Cuomo’s fellow Democrats are turning on him.
Members of the state legislature introduced legislation to strip Governor Cuomo’s emergency coronavirus powers from him.
State Assemblyman Ron Kim stated that 25 to 30 Democrats supported opening an impeachment inquiry against Cuomo.
It’s now an open question if Governor Cuomo will finish his term in office, let alone run for re-election next year.
The administration is under multiple criminal investigations by the FBI and the United States Attorney in Brooklyn.
Cuomo’s political standing is deteriorating by the day and despite the media doing its best to sweep the scandal under the rug, the facts confronting Cuomo are so damaging that Cuomo may not stand a chance to survive this scandal with his political future intact.
