Gov. Andrew Cuomo had better watch his step should she decide to make Melissa DeRosa the scapegoat in his Covid-19 to the nursing home scandal.
She is not someone to be messed with. Or at least her mother-in-law is no one to be messed with.
Audrey Strauss runs the DOJ office in the Southern District of New York.
As such, she could be the one to prosecute Cuomo over his mishandling of the pandemic in New York.
Cuomo released fake numbers where it comes to deaths by Covid-19, he is likely guilty of obstruction charges.
There could be other charges as well as possible but improbable impeachment since Democrats greatly outnumber Republicans which means Cuomo will get away with murder.
I don’t know any other way to describe what Cuomo did to the nursing home patients, do you?
His assistant Melissa DeRosa already admitted to obstruction in her phone call with top Democratic lawmakers. At least 15,000 seniors living in nursing homes died as a result of his orders to sent Covid positive patients into nursing homes where the most vulnerable Americans live. This led to their deaths. Cuomo blamed the deaths on President Trump, knowing all the time that it was his own idiotic decision that led to mass graves in New York.
Melissa DeRosa, Cuomo’s Assistant, stated to the Democrats on a recent conference call:
“And basically, we froze,” she reportedly said. “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.”
She reportedly added: “That played a very large role into this”
“But instead of a mea culpa to the grieving family members of more than 13,000 dead seniors or the critics who say the Health Department spread COVID-19 in the care facilities with a March 25 state Health Department directive that nursing homes admit infected patients, DeRosa tried to make amends with the fellow Democrats for the political inconvenience it caused them.
“So we do apologize,” she said. “I do understand the position that you were put in. I know that it is not fair. It was not our intention to put you in that political position with the Republicans.”It was the NY Post’s Bernadette Hogan, Carl Campanile and Bruce Golding broke this story on February 11.”
“Hogan has been on top of this story since the beginning and has attended most of Cuomo’s press conferences in person. her coverage at the New York Post has kept the nation updated as to the horrific crimes that were being committed by the Cuomo administration in New York’s nursing homes and hospitals by virtue of NYS Department of Health Commissioner Howard Zucker’s Covid-19 public policies”
