Thursday News Roundup: Andrew Cuomo Might be in Real Trouble

Andrew Cuomo could be in real trouble, finally. – I know it’s hard to believe that any Democrat public official in this country could ever be in real trouble, given the devoted efforts of the entirety of the corrupt national news media to provide cover for them. Least of all, Andrew Cuomo, who the media has virtually deified during the COVID pandemic, pretending that his utterly disastrous responses to the virus were somehow a role model for other governors to emulate.

But he really could be in trouble now, mainly because even his fellow Democrats in New York are beginning to turn against him in the wake of revelations that his administration systematically and intentionally under-reported the number of elderly residents who were dying in the state’s nursing homes, thanks mainly to Cuomo’s policy of sending them to those homes from hospitals before their course of treatment had ended, and while they were still contagious. It seems that even some Democrats don’t really want to be seen as supporting a governor who is responsible for the needless deaths of thousands of their own people.

On Wednesday, Democrat state representative Ron Kim told reporters that Cuomo had threated to “destroy” him if he didn’t help Cuomo chief of staff Melissa DeRosa cover up the administration’s systematic under-reporting of nursing home deaths, an effort DeRosa herself led on Cuomo’s behalf.

From a story at The Hill:

New York Assemblyman Ron Kim (D) told CNN on Wednesday that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) had threatened him over the phone after he criticized the governor over a pause in the release of data on coronavirus deaths in state nursing homes.

“Gov. Cuomo called me directly on Thursday to threaten my career if I did not cover up for Melissa [DeRosa] and what she said. He tried to pressure me to issue a statement, and it was a very traumatizing experience,” Kim told CNN.

“We’re in this business together and we don’t cross certain lines,” Kim said the governor told him. He also said Cuomo told him that he “hadn’t seen his wrath and that he can destroy me.”

Top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa told state lawmakers during a virtual meeting that the Cuomo administration “froze” releasing information on long-term care facility deaths out of concern that the Department of Justice (DOJ) under former President Trump would launch a federal investigation.

[End]

Oh. Bad optics, there, Governor. But not really surprising given his family’s historic ties to the New York mob.

But things are just getting worse for the thug-in-chief. This morning, multiple outlets are reporting that Cuomo now finds himself under investigation by both the FBI and the New York State Attorney General’s office.

From the story at DailyWire:

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, for his administration’s decision to send recovering coronavirus patients into nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, local New York media reported Wednesday night.

According to the Albany Times-Union, the U.S. Attorney’s investigation is in its “early stages” but is focusing on Cuomo’s controversial nursing home policy, which may have resulted in thousands of deaths, many more than the Cuomo administration originally reported.

“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,” the Times-United noted.

“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,” the outlet reported. “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.”

The governor’s office acknowledged to the Times-Union that there is a Department of Justice investigation but insisted that there was no news to report on the subject.

Oh. Of course, given the utterly corrupt nature of the national dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it’s most likely that information was leaked purely for public consumption, as the agency tries to make it look as if it is doing its job, but will conveniently drop the whole thing once all the hub bub dies down and the news cycle moves to other matters. No one should expect any real action against a high-profile Democrat out of those guys and gals.

As for the New York AG’s office, well, who knows? We’ll just have to wait and see on that one. It should be noted, though, that Rep. Kim is far from the only Democrat in the state who has come out to criticize Cuomo over this matter, so the pressure on that office to perform a real investigation will be significant.

Meanwhile, Cuomo’s little brother Fredo has been reined in by management at CNN, and won’t be allowed to engage in late-night shenanigans and hilarity with his big bro as New Yorkers die all around them anymore.

From the story at DailyWire:

CNN reinstated a ban this week on opinion host Chris Cuomo being able to interview or cover his scandal-ridden brother, New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, which comes as reports surfaced on Wednesday evening that a criminal investigation has been launched into Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as it relates to nursing homes.

“The early months of the pandemic crisis were an extraordinary time. We felt that Chris speaking with his brother about the challenges of what millions of American families were struggling with was of significant human interest,” CNN said in a statement. “As a result, we made an exception to a rule that we have had in place since 2013 which prevents Chris from interviewing and covering his brother, and that rule remains in place today. CNN has covered the news surrounding Governor Cuomo extensively.”

[End]

That pusillanimous statement from CNN is what we here on the frozen arctic tundra of Texas like to call a rank, smelly load of fresh horse manure. Scum of the earth, all of them.

Speaking of scum of the earth, Bette Midler was also in the news on Wednesday. – The elderly, washed-up singer summed up the feelings of all of her fellow Hollywood leftists about the fact that 4 million Texans are freezing without electricity right now in a single tweet:

 

Midler’s ghoulish tweet was actually sort of mild in comparison to the outpouring of vile hatred from the left in response to the death yesterday of the great Rush Limbaugh. I’m not going to repeat any of it here, but suffice it to say that our leftist friends invariably unmask their true faces to us whenever a prominent conservative dies.

I keep telling you these people hate you and would rather you were dead, folks. Believe me now?

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than Whatfinger.com is the only real conservative alternative to Drudge, and deserves to become everyone’s go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

[…] Let’s see what actually happens. […]

Silas

And the propaganda continues

https://www.kmov.com/news/tremendous-loss-oregon-infant-tested-positive-for-covid-19-died-same-day-at-hospital/article_96210eaf-3d59-5d48-b311-a79e57980c66.html

Buried in the story is this: “Underlying conditions”. And then they don’t tell you what those “underlying conditions” are.

Those that keep perpetuating these lies deserve to be put to the blade.

Silas

You all forget one thing – demoncrats eat their own. Cuomo’s best by date may have been reached. And even the Mob cleans house once in a while.

Silas

And right on cue

https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2021/02/18/de-blasio-i-100-believe-cuomo-threatened-dem-assemblyman-thats-classic-andrew-cuomo/

He’s becoming a liability folks. And that’s a threat to their power.

Dan Smith

will cuomo face any consequences with the democrat kgb fbi investigating?
come on man

fred

The Democrats are liars, cheaters, thugs and exempt from the standards of honesty and competence that we expect from any one. Their supporters constitute some of the most segments of the population who do not care about decent government. They can all go to hell.

jdquick

Sorry, but nothing will happen to Como. He is too well protected and the liberals love him. His right hand just got a job in DC and that tells you all you need to know about this situation. The man is sucm, but he is liberal scum and that is all that country.

Roy E Strayer, Jr

In trouble? Why? Because the FBI is “investigating?” One thing the past several years should have taught us is the when we hear that the FBI is investigating, we know they are preventing all others from accessing information and will do nothing themselves.

Gregg

Investigating donkeys and some protected RINOs/CINOs – yes

Investigating conservatives and anything Trump – no

rottenrollin

DAMN.

It would seem even the EVIL Dimmercrats would call the line on murdering 15000 citizens.

Gregg

Depends upon which citizens are murdered

Silas

Cuomo – I am surprised some enterprising, ambulance chasing shyster attorney hasn’t jumped at the opportunity to file a class action lawsuit on his ass. He deserves to be bankrupt and in prison for what he did. And anybody who helped him deserves the same. Damn straight skippy if it had been my parents or grandparents, after his mouthpiece revealed the deception, I would have been on the internet searching for the biggest, meanest pitbull lawyer I could find.

Bette Midler, like all the corrupt conmunist demoncrat rank and file proletariat, do hate us. And it’s our solemn duty to not spend one more thin penny on them or their products. Stop feeding the beasts.

A pox on them, their houses and their spawn.

Remember the comment in the article about the Cuomo family’s ties to organized crime. If you or your attorney tried to sue Cuomo, you might get a “visit” from “Guido” and his buddies. 2 broken knees would be the best you could hope for.

Fraizer

Probably has personal immunity for actions taken as Governor.

Roy E Strayer, Jr

Why do you think he is under “investigation?” To keep said ambulance chasers away. They dare not interfere with an official FBI investigation.

Lawrence

The lawyers would end up dead and they know it.

Jonesy

What have we learned about powerful democrats in the past 12 years? They are exempt from accountability for their actions.

The FBI is investigating, wow…..that used to hold some weight. In this instance it just means they are creating some paperwork to be able to dismiss Cuomo’s actions with some official weight behind it. Case closed. Sam with the state AG office. Investigations with winks and nods.

And Democrat state representative Ron Kim? Admirable for shedding light on this fiasco, but as a lowly state rep, he’ll be manning a municipal desk job upstate after his term is up.

exordis

That’s if he doesn’t have an “accident”.

Gregg

Nothing will happen to Cuomo unless the powers-that-be in the donkey party want to end his career ala Weinstein and Franken.

It wouldn’t surprise me if btfsplk appoints bagpipe barr or dungham as a special council to “get to the bottom” of the nursing home’s CV-19 scandal to ensure it goes nowhere.

After all, there are plenty of corrupt Leftist hacks who are well trained and waiting in the wings ready willing and able to replace Mario’s son as the situation develops in New York. The fact that Cuomo was not named as btfsplk’s AG, spoke volumes.

Referring to a line in a Waylon Jennings song regarding a possible Cuomo prosecution: ” I’ll believe it when I see it ’cause I haven’t seen it yet.  Don’t mind me, just keep on talking, I’m just looking for my hat”.

One thing we have going for us is the donkey’s will eventually eat many of their own when it suits their cause. Hitler had his ‘friend’ Ernst Rohm eliminated when he poised an internal threat and Stalin did likewise with his murderous purges to his perceived enemies and former friends. The history of communist regimes shows figureheads like btfsplk had better watch their back and he and Dr. Jill had better be ready to bail as soon as the cabal decide they want to install roundheels as the new presidential figurehead.

Both Cuomos are Snakes in Brooks Bros suits.
