One of the biggest scandals in America just exploded.
A whistleblower finally came forward to tell the truth.
And Andrew Cuomo just got caught red-handed in one terrible criminal cover up.
For months, critics suspected that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo covered up the true death toll that resulted from his disastrous order mandating nursing homes take in coronavirus patients.
The snowball on this story got rolling when New York State Attorney General Letitia James released a report showing Cuomo’s administration hid the death toll in nursing homes by undercounting deaths by 50%.
It turned out roughly 13,000 seniors died from Coronavirus and not the 6,000 that Cuomo claimed.
But the worst was yet to come.
Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa told state Democrat leaders that the Cuomo administration ignored a request from the legislature about the death toll in nursing homes because administration officials feared the Justice Department would use the information to criminally prosecute Cuomo and his aides.
The New York Post reported:
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”
In addition to attacking Cuomo’s fellow Democratic governors, DeRosa said, Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”
“And basically, we froze,” she told the lawmakers on the call.
“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.”
This admission and bombshell reporting by the Post has many Americans now demanding that there be a criminal investigation into the Cuomo administration on charges of obstruction of justice.
