New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo is under investigation by the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York as well as the FBI over his deadly nursing home deaths because of his inane rule that sent Covid positive patients to nursing homes where our most vulnerable people live.
They will also be looking into why Cuomo fudged the numbers on how many Covid patients were sent to nursing homes and the number of deaths.
According to reports, the US Attorney’s investigation is in its very early stages meaning it could be a while before they exonerate Cuomo and figure out how to spin it to be Trump’s fault.
The number of nursing home deaths has now reached over 15,000 fatalities.
Cuomo still insists it is not his fault and the lamestream press is backing him on this.
At the same time, they are condemning Florida Gov Ron DeSantis on his handling of the pandemic even though they fared so much better than New York without the Draconian lockdowns and the destruction of their economy.
“The probe by the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of New York is apparently in its early stages and is focusing on the work of some of the senior members of the governor’s task force, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter who is not authorized to comment publicly.”
“Last March, as the virus began spreading in New York, Cuomo issued a news release listing the 13 initial members of his coronavirus task force, which has been headed by Linda Lacewell, an attorney and former chief of staff for Cuomo. Lacewell is the superintendent of the state Department of Financial Services. Other task force members include state Health Commissioner Howard Zucker, Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa and Beth Garvey, counsel to the governor.”
“It’s unclear whether the federal probe by the office of acting U.S. Attorney Seth D. DuCharme is tied to two letters that Cuomo’s administration received from a civil division attorney at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C., last year seeking information on the state’s nursing home policies and data,” the outlet added.
As one of its first orders of business, Cuomo’s office issued the order requiring nursing homes and other adult care facilities to take recovering coronavirus patients even if they continued to test positive for the virus. The Cuomo administration rescinded the order two months later, but not before hundreds, if not thousands, of potentially contagious COVID-19 patients were sent to nursing facilities, exposing thousands of vulnerable individuals to the deadly virus.
