The New York attorney general’s investigation into claims Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually assaulted and harassed numerous women has entered a new phase, with prosecutors now issuing subpoenas for documents and interviews.

Attorney General Letitia James’ office had previously only held informal interviews with accusers and Cuomo’s staff to determine whether he violated state laws and government employment rules on sexual harassment.


But investigators, led by former federal prosecutor Joon Kim and prominent New York attorney Anne Clark, are now asking Cuomo staff and government employees to turn over emails and documents that may show Cuomo destroyed evidence or sought to intimidate witnesses.

“Ms. Clark has been delving into the specifics of the sexual harassment accusations. She has collected vast documentation of the claims, including text messages, emails, and photographs that Mr. Cuomo’s accusers say support their allegations, according to two people who were present at interviews with the women and spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter,” The New York Times reports.

James is expected to complete her investigation by the end of summer, which is also looking into whether Cuomo followed state procedures on reporting sexual harassment.

With many New York state legislators looking to impeach Cuomo, James’ findings could lead to Cuomo’s legislative removal from office.

If Cuomo destroyed evidence or tampered with witnesses, he could face criminal charges.

Cuomo may already be under criminal investigation by at least one other New York law enforcement agency.  In March one of Cuomo’s accusers reported her alleged assault to Albany police, with the department issuing a statement that they are looking into the claims and his actions “to the level of a crime.”

C’mon man! Sexual assault? Sexual harassment? He’s a powerful democrat and probably has people’s compromising photos stashed away for such occasions. He’s no fool. The Barr/ Durham investigation was for treasonous issues that have gone “Poof”. So will any Cuomo investigation. “Poof”. Nothing to see here folks. Just move on.

It really depends on if the Dems like him anymore and if any of the people that are investigating him had parents or grandparent that died in a rest home.

The biggest scandal is the nursing home scandal. Any MSM will try to deflect from this because he is accountable for thousands of deaths, and trying to profit from it on a book deal which has floundered. His publisher has lost millions, to Cuomo himself. By his actions, he should be sued over and over and over without the State having to pick up the tab. The Nazi’s put people in gas chambers for their death; how is this any different? Crime against humanity is my vote; thus firing squad or hanging.

What about all the people he has been involved with. He had a hospital ship that set in New York harbor he didn’t even use. But he pull people out hospital into nursing homes. Then lied about the numbers. He should be tried for crimes against humanity and all propagandists News Network. The mayor needs to be look at too. Where has all the money 💰 gone. Communist Democrats pockets and all the state agencies.

It’s most likely that the bulk of our leadership will be concealing skeletons that render them vulnerable to extortion, and the media is primed and ready to maximize the impact of those skeletons. It should actually be a crime to reveal derogatory information concerning our politicians after they are elected, if those stories are about events that occurred prior to their election.

That would define extortion.
