NY congressman calls for arrest of top Cuomo aide over nursing home COVID deaths cover-up

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), or one of his senior aides, may soon face accountability for potentially criminal behavior after it was discovered that Cuomo’s team deliberately covered up the true number of COVID-19-related deaths in nursing homes for political purposes.

Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) announced Friday that he intends to formally file a criminal complaint against Melissa DeRosa, secretary to the governor, and strongly implied that Cuomo could face consequences in the near future as well, Breitbart reported.

Speaking Friday with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Reed said, “Now we have Gov. Cuomo’s second in command, essentially, on a taped confession to fellow Democratic lawmakers admitting she committed criminal activity to cover up for what they were hiding from the federal officials.”

Cover-up admitted

In a private conference call with Democratic lawmakers in the state, DeRosa admitted that the Cuomo administration had covered up the COVID death toll in nursing homes while apologizing for the political problem it had created.

A New York Post report contains leaked audio recording of the call, in which DeRosa sought to justify why Cuomo’s team had decided to conceal the actual nursing home fatality figures, namely out of concern over sharply critical tweets from then-President Donald Trump and the possibility of a federal investigation by the Justice Department.

“And basically, we froze,” DeRosa 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.

“So we do apologize,” she added later, albeit not for the unnecessary deaths or to the grieving families, but to the Democratic legislators. “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.”

“Arrested today”

Reed said that Cuomo’s March 25 directive to place recovering COVID patients — who were still positive for the deadly virus — inside nursing homes full of the most vulnerable was tantamount to “sending 15,000 peoples to their death.”

“This, obviously, cannot go unaccounted for,” Reed said, adding that “the days of Cuomo are going to be numbered in Albany here.”

“But, most important, we need to start with this second in command,” he said. “I’m demanding — I’m going to be looking at filing a personal criminal complaint against this individual, today, in local law enforcement offices, as well as federal offices. Because she needs to be arrested today.”

“She is a criminal actor here, so I’m going after her right now,” Reed said. “But don’t make any mistake about it, Gov. Cuomo will be held to account and this is where it starts. Thank God we are getting to the bottom of this COVID disaster that Gov. Cuomo ordered 15,000 residents to their death.”

  1. First, I would like to thank Ben Marquisfor not trying to cover up the truth about these needless deaths and encourage him to continue to be a voice for the people.
    I understand the concept of caution when an unknown agen/virus threatens, however it became known very early that this Covid-19 virus was not very different as to the deaths from previous viruses and the fact that officials covered up and blatantly lied about it causing untold economic, health, safetyand financial calamity is unforgivable. These people ALL need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and judges and attorneys who refuse to prosecute should be deemed complicit in their crimes against the people.

    1. The other governors who did the same thing Cuomo did with the nursing home patients, must be prosecuted as well. COVID is a manipulation to control the population and inject people with a “vaccine” that isn’t one.. but something more nefarious. Most are asleep at the wheel and believe everything the MSM and certain political operatives are propagandizing. Deaths from this so called cure are not being reported either. The so called cabal is planning more draconian lockdowns, even after they suggested the “vaccine” would stop the spread. You have to be your own advocate and research real facts. The likes of Fauci, et al are not here to instruct or help, but to mislead and destroy just as Cuomo and the others did. There is a real agenda here, which has been published many times, but is probably now censored. It is a globalist agenda, known as Agenda 21.. depopulation. The WHO, CDC, Big Pharma, Fauci, and yes, Bill Gates are ALL involved.

    2. I agree with the fact that every one involved needs to be arrested. However, why not start at the top with Cuomo and work our way down. It seems that the arrests are always starting with one of the subordinates and then it is forgotten about before the one in command gets arrested. The elite walk while the employee takes the fall.

  2. So many needless deaths of the elderly. These folks were the ones that gave their sweat and blood to make this country only to have Coumo and the rotten dems end their final days. All these scum should be in prison.
    I’m sure the lowlife slime msm will NOT report this.

  4. Cuomo should face several charges, manslaughter at least, lying about facts of the deaths. endangerment to the elderly, and it goes on, He is a disgusting, self absorbed arrogant D*ck in plain English. He is a low life scum and needs to pay for all those deaths and anyone who helped him cover this up should be brought up on accessory to the cover up. All those families who lost their loved ones because of his stupid asinine decisions, he murdered those people as if he held a gun to their head, He needs to be held accountable.

  5. ALSO on the list to be investigated for criminal conduct should be Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of NIH, Dr. Robert Redfield, head of CDC and Dr. Stephan Hahn, head of the FDA who banned Hydroxychloroquine for “off label” use. All three are guilty of exacerbating the death count by their blithe ignorance and their desire for power and wealth.

    Each should be investigated to see if they financially benefitted from their conduct and if any of them received any money from Bill Gates or the World Health Organization. Or bought stock in any of the pharmaceutical companies that were awarded contracts to product their COVID-19 vaccines. I suspect ALL of them did.

    1. You too, Mr. Strom, are point on. I truly hope our Patriots take this seriously, we all see where this “regime” is leading our country. Totally unacceptable.

  6. Adolf Cuomo killed at least 7 or 8 times more people than the terrorists did on 9/11 then he wrote a book about it to brag about what a great job he did. He needs to be removed immediately!!!

  7. I’m sure sure this crud ball will never see prison or even removed from office. I say this cuz Biden and son are still walking free and probably always will. The deep state dems NEVER answer for their crimes. I wonder what all the lowlife slime in Hollywood think of Cuomo? I bet they don’t give it any thought since they are lowlife crud themselves.

  8. All the democrat govon9rs who sent people back to nursing homes should be convicted. There is no reason anyone one of them would or should get off. Especially cuomo, I live in New York and I watched him whine constantly about not having enough beds for co vid patients. His enemy President Trump sent him the USS Comfort fully stocked with Drs., nurses, equipment .He never used it, but he and his as s hole brother Chris did a comedy skit about the swabs and how big govonor cuomo swab would be. Not a laughing matter when you basically sent thousands to their death.it was pretty funny to them ,in fact Cuomo wrote a book about how well he handled the pandemic then got it published. The publishers should be held accountable for glorifying a killer. Was the pandemic as /ad as the democrats made out ? It will be interesting to see Cuomo squirm his way out of it, but he will have Biden, Pelosi,Schumer, and all the high profile criminal democrats bail his as s out. Pathetic

  9. It will be interesting to hear what illegitimate Biden says about the thousands of needless elderly deaths caused by Cuomo. I’ll tell you this that Piglosi and crew are responsible for the deaths on Jan 6 because she knew that Antifa was going to cause trouble and then put the blame Trump which is exactly what happened. She and any other slime dem involved in the violence and deaths on Jan 6 should be charged. What is needed is some brave politician to bring this up and demand an investigation. The only problem is the DOJ and FBI are as corrupt as the day is long.

  10. FINALLY SOMEONE HAS SOME B***s and get rid of this criminel.IT MUST BE THE GREATEST MOMENT FOR THESE FAMILYS TO GET JUSTICE.
    IT IS ABOUT TIME. PULL HIS BOOK OFF THE SHELVES RIGHT NOW.WE HOPE HE WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER JOB IN THE SENATE OR CONGRESS . HE SHOULD BE REMOVED FOREVER,ASAP.

  11. Really & Cuomo wasn’t arrested?? I would have thought he would have been the first one to go, I just hope Cuomo doesn’t try to blain the aide for everything & get off for his part in this horrible crime, he was the master mind that told his staff what to do!!
