Calls to prosecute Andrew Cuomo explode after aide confesses to cover-up of critical nursing home data

After nearly a year of relentless praise and adulation of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his handling of the COVID-19 crisis, the tide is turning with a slew of recent revelations regarding his administration’s role in the deaths of thousands of nursing home residents.

Cuomo’s top aide, secretary to the governor Melissa DeRosa, shocked the nation by admitting on Thursday that Cuomo had shielded data from New York lawmakers due to fears the numbers could be “used against us,” leading to an explosion of calls for the indictment of Cuomo and DeRosa.

They finally admitted it

Cuomo’s administration has long been reluctant to address calls to release data regarding the number of nursing home deaths in the state — and now we know why.

The governor has come under fire for months due to his controversial decision to order the state’s nursing homes — which house the populations most vulnerable to COVID-19 — to accept COVID-19 positive patients during the height of the pandemic.

Cuomo’s administration refused to release data proving the impact of that decision, manipulating the state’s data reporting system to conceal the true death toll that could be directly tied to his order.

DeRosa attempted to blame Trump for the misstep, telling Democrat New York legislators in a recently-surfaced conference call that Cuomo’s administration refused a request to provide nursing home data to state lawmakers because “right around the same time, [then-President Donald Trump] turns this into a giant political football.”

“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa explained. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”

After Trump’s Department of Justice began a preliminary probe of the matter, DeRosa said that Cuomo’s administration “froze” 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.”

Calls for prosecution

DeRosa’s confession — coupled with the results of an investigation conducted by New York Attorney General Letitia James which found that the Cuomo administration had underreported nursing home deaths by as much as 50 percent — has launched a movement to hold Cuomo’s administration criminally liable for those deaths.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) called for an obstruction-of-justice investigation into DeRosa and Cuomo’s actions, tweeting on Thursday that “it’s now being reported there has been a direct admission of their nursing home coverup. The families of thousands of dead NY seniors deserve accountability.”

Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) announced on Friday that he’s pursuing a criminal complaint against DeRosa, calling for her arrest for her role in facilitating Cuomo’s cover-up of the nursing home death toll.

A number of NY Democrats have joined Republicans calling for Cuomo to be held accountable for the disaster, with State Sen. Andrew Gornardes (D-Bay Ridge) declaring Cuomo and DeRosa’s actions a “betrayal of public trust” and calling for “full accountability for what happened, and the legislature needs to reconsider its broad grant of emergency powers to the governor.”

  1. But it was ok they used anything they could against President Trump. Now the truth is out liars and hypocrites fixing the numbers. And our great msm supported all the lies against Trump and never questioned the dem lies. Biased hateful reporting from the lapdogs.

    2. Just one more in the endless parade of democrat / liberals that lie, cheat steal, and murder to have power . just one more reason why no intelligent person ever votes democrat.

      all the low IQ unintelligent illiterate person who vote democrat have yet another democrat hero to watch go through a scandal. Don;t you ever get tried of it?

      I know there are a lot of you young folks that don;t have much real history but there has been a endless parade of Andrew Cuomo’s in the democrat party and you foolish people just keep voting new ones in.

    3. Too many “news papers” write any TRUE news. Why buy one? I’ve not bought a newspaper since 1980…..and I am as knowledgeable, or MORE SO, than simple news paper readers.

    1. I agree. Dead head Joe hasn’t the capacity of changing his own ‘Depends’ diaper. So he would protect any Communist/Democrat that talks to him.

    2. Buddy Joe is a traitor to this country and doing China’s work to destroy America. The crimes the Biden’s committed making it possible to blackmail America. Just from day one Joe is paying China and other enemies of America back for billions the Biden cabal sucked out of these countries.

  3. Cuomo and DeBozo need jailed awaiting a noose. They were told that the elderly were the most at risk of Death from Covid. They intentionally sent the SICK to Nursing homes anyway so both are guilty of Cold Blooded MURDER.

      1. Since Obama corrupted all agencies while in power and many of these rats are still there nothing will happen to any of these rotten democrats no matter what they do. When your able to put the most corrupt man with the most corrupt family into the white house everything criminal is a go. The democrats are all evil and have been that way since the 1980 ies. Obama is a devil and should have been impeached and maybe we can still impeach him now because he still spreads his poisoned corrupt millions of people.

        1. Trump is being impeached while no longer in office, why not the same for Obozo? Or is he still immune from repercussions?

    1. The jail time before the ‘Noose’ should only be 2 weeks, thus saving the taxpayer unnecessary expense of their housing.

  4. Great job MSM protecting a criminal by not reporting his killing of all those old people maybe my cousin will get justice for his death. Hey Fredo why aren’t you and your station reporting on your brother

  5. Well, it is supposed to be wrong to mention the word ‘Mafia’, but that is what these 2 have arisen from and are still practicing. Maybe even consider them as ‘God Fathers’. Arrest and give life in prison with NO PAROLE, ever.

  6. Andrew Cuomo needs to be held accountable and charged for all the deaths he caused and covered up. He needs prison and the death penalty

  7. The media is complicit in all of this. Start taking stock of those companies that advertise on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC then DO NOT BUY ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS. Get off of social media platforms and just call or write people until these tools that run these social media companies come to their senses. They are not our moms and dads and can therefore NOT TELL US WHAT TO DO, HOW TO ACT, OR WHAT TO THINK. Band together people, save this country, there is no place else to go.

  8. Andy Cuomo is going to be spending his increased salary & his book deal money on lawyers to keep his lying butt out of jail! He deserves the death penalty! Hey Andy, I don’t think they are going to be naming any bridges after you!

  9. Communists don’t want old people, I am not surprised he put sick in with the old folks, easiest way correct. That’s exactly what will happen with single payer, no need to waste money on them..they are not workers. This man and all the other “deplorable” Democrats need to be jailed for treason, because that’s what it is.

  10. It was probably the Democrats ,Chuck Schumer, nancy Pelosi who told cuomo to put them back in the nursing homes and then the plan was to blame President Trump for killing all of these elderly citizens. The ones who worked their whole life ,paid taxes, and tried to be upstanding citizens , paid for cuomo 2 raises in less than a year (45,000.00) and he set the plan in motion. I hope his brother die from fright. First it’s Andy, next is Chris. Someone needs to find out if it’s true or not but someone told me that for every death the state of New York received 22,000 .00 per person that explains his raise. No ethics, no morals for either Andy or Chris. Throw them to the people of new york. I guarantee it won’t be pretty.
