New York lawmaker warns Cuomo impeachment probe will take ‘months’ to complete

As Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faces multiple scandals and calls for his resignation, some see a possible impeachment as the most effective way to remove him from office.

According to Breitbart, state lawmakers announced on Tuesday, however, that their investigation of the embattled governor could take “months” to complete.

“Breadth and seriousness”

Critics are responding to the news by speculating that Democrats are using it as a stall tactic to help Cuomo survive the most perilous period of his political career.

For his part, New York State Assembly Judiciary Committee Chair Charles Lavine, a Democrat, said that the impeachment probe will take “months, rather than weeks” as legislators “assess whether there’s evidence that the governor has engaged in conduct that justifies articles of impeachment.”

According to Breitbart, he cited “the breadth and seriousness of the issues under investigation” as the reason for an extended timeline.

Cuomo has experienced a precipitous fall from grace in recent months after his leadership style was heralded by the mainstream media and pundits on both sides of the aisle during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to reports that his administration underreported the death toll among nursing home patients infected with the virus, multiple women have gone public this year to accuse him of sexual misconduct. Nevertheless, the governor remains defiant, even declaring earlier this month that he does not think he has “ever done anything” as a politician that he is “ashamed of.”

“More than enough evidence”

The New York Post editorial board made it clear where it stands on the latest impeachment news, calling the delay a “flagrant farce” meant to protect the governor.

“There’s more than enough evidence to impeach Cuomo just for his corrupt coverup of the true toll of his deadly order forcing nursing homes to accept COVID-contagious patients,” the recent editorial argues.

Some of Cuomo’s accusers have even refused to cooperate with the legislative probe, including one who called it a “sham.”

Nevertheless, some prominent Democrats — including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — have unequivocally called for Cuomo to step down.

President Joe Biden is not among them, however, insisting that an investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James should conclude before any such demands are made. The question remains, however, whether the governor is merely being provided due process or is benefiting from a concerted effort to save his career.

  1. Can only imagine if Trump was charged with 1% of what Coumo is charged with, Trump would be behind bars.

    1. not to mention they’d have investigation completed in less than a day and convicted after a 5 minute trial just like last time

  2. Another commiecrat clown gum flaps. It only took weeks for them to get to Trump’s two crooked impeachment attempts and now it takes months to go after a commiecrat buddy??? Can we say two faced???

  4. IF CONGRESS CAN PUT AN IMPEACHMENT HEARING TOGETHER IN 1 WEEK FOR PRESDIENT TRUMP, WHY WOULD IT TAKE SO LONG FOR COUMO? OH YEAH, HE’S A DEMOCRATE. STUPID ME!!!

  5. Does anyone really feel that JUSTICE at any government level will be made? The Democratic Party has been Underhandedly corrupt for decades, some NO, and yes, some Republicans as well. Saying they are EVIL, self serving or power mongers is a waste of time. Note how CLINTONS, OBAMAS
    SHARPTON, BUSH, SCHUMER, SCHIFF, SANDERS, WARREN, OMAR, CORTEZ, et al are keeping an extremely low profile thinking all of their criminal acts will be forgotten. NO, IT CAN NOT BE FORGOTTEN BECAUSE JUSTICE MUST BE SERVED AND MONIES BE RETURNED TO SOCIAL SECURITY ALSO, THE PEOPLES MONEY, NOT GOVERNMENT S TO USE. UNITY, PEACE AND ACCOUNTABILITY IS VITAL FOR OUR SOVERNIETY!!!

  6. WHY DOES INVESTIGATIONS OF DEMOCRAT CRIMINALS TAKE MONTHS ,EVEN THOUGH EVERYONE KNOWS THEY ARE GUILTY,OTHERWISE WHY THE INVESTIGATION IN THE FIRST PLACE. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE?

  7. Let’s have Cuomo impeached by Republicans only, the same way Trump was railroaded by Democrats on both of his impeachments. I’ll bet it would be decided a lot faster than months.

  8. I am getting really fed up with all those dimrats getting away with all their crimes! I believe if we made an example out of a few (Clinton, Obummer, Biden, Cuomo etc) then we might just get some to fear the laws! And that’s the problem, Demwits don’t fear the laws since the laws were not written for them!!!
    Hurry up God, send your son to gather your children home!!

  9. Why??? Nancy had an impeachment for Trump in a week, what kind of crap are they pulling now make us wait till we forget it, like what their doing with the Biden crime family treason with China, Harris paying off Antifa bail, all the other Dems. that put people in nursing homes to die of covid, all the lies they tell & no one holds them responsible for inciting riots, insurrection, voting certain ways & getting pay offs by big business & other countries, voter fraud etc., giving your family money from your campaign fund, blaming others for what the Democrats do & wasting our money with hokey impeachments, using covid 19 relief money to help the Democrats & illegals not the people, letting Swalwell have China spies work for a top secrete agency & sleep with her & get away with it! I agree we need to put a stop to them getting away with all these crimes!! How is the big question?

  10. Why don’t they just arrest him for the deaths of the people of the old age homes he knew what he was doing to those people so I some people would call it murder so why wait just do it
