Judiciary committee examining charges against New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo will conclude their investigation “very shortly”, says Linda Rosenthal who is a member of the State Assembly.
Gatekeepers News reports that on Monday the judiciary committee met in executive session, behind closed doors, to discuss how to wrap up the ongoing investigation of Cuomo.
The committee discussed Cuomo’s conduct with women, and other matters which include the use of staff to help with his $5 million book deal and his administration’s decision to withhold full statistics on COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes from the public.
Gatekeepers News gathered that the judiciary committee will continue to meet and discuss the evidence in private till, at least, August 23.
“He is sort of trapped now, there’s nowhere to turn, and I think eventually he will come to that reality because there really is no way out except resign or be impeached,” Rosenthal said.
The committee is planning to have public hearings featuring testimony from experts on sexual harassment and impeachment procedures and any vote to start an impeachment trial would then require a 30-day period for Cuomo to respond.
The Judiciary Committee has started to receive hundreds of thousands of pages of documents and other evidence gathered by the Attorney General’s investigators.
Gatekeepers News reports that the Attorney General’s investigators have found that Cuomo sexual harassed women employees in his state office and violated federal and state laws.
