In break with Schumer, Pelosi refuses to call for Cuomo’s resignation

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is down, but not out. Just ask Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Breaking with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the House speaker has refused to call for Cuomo’s resignation as he faces bruising scandals over sexual harassment and a cover-up of COVID-19 deaths in New York’s nursing homes, Fox News reports.

The governor has fallen far from where he was a year ago, when his daily press briefings on the coronavirus won him an Emmy award and rapturous admiration from Democrats and their media allies.

Cuomo reeling

In recent weeks, several women have accused Cuomo of harassing them, with one even alleging that he “aggressively groped” her. The lengths Cuomo went to cover-up deaths in nursing homes from the coronavirus are also being scrutinized like never before.

Asked about Cuomo on Sunday, Pelosi defended him, despite holding a “believe women” stance that Cuomo has also advocated (until now).

According to Fox, the speaker reiterated that she has “zero tolerance” for sexual harassment but nevertheless echoed Cuomo by saying he is entitled to due process.

“I think we should see the results of the investigation…but he may decide,” Pelosi told ABC News. “And hopefully this result will be soon. What I’m saying is the governor should look inside his heart — he loves New York — to see if he can govern effectively. And that could be one of the considerations that he has.”

Biden, too

Pelosi’s position is noticeably more defensive of Cuomo than that of her counterpart in the Senate, the most powerful Democrat in New York not named Cuomo.

Sen. Schumer caused a shock when he became one of the most high-profile members of his party to call for Cuomo to step down on Friday. The junior senator from New York, Kirsten Gillibrand (D), also called for Cuomo to resign.

“Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York,” the pair said in a statement, according to CNBC. “Governor Cuomo should resign.”

President Joe Biden, who has faced his own questions about his interactions with women as well as children, also refused to kick Cuomo to the curb on Sunday. “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us,” Biden said, according to the New York Post.

For his part, Cuomo has steadfastly refused to step aside while criticizing calls for his resignation as a form of “cancel culture.”

      THE LAWS OF OUR LAND DO NOT APPLY.

      1. That is the truth. If Harris were a republican, she would have been impeached a month ago. If Biden were a republican, his lack of cognition, would have caused an overwhelming outcry for his impeachment. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Andrew Cuomo would have been fired.

      2. You are sadly 100 percent right. How many times have we seen this over and over again – going back decades!

      3. Seems that way we have a Pedophile President in the White House and a Corrupt embezzler and a bunch of more Corrupt Money launderer Democrats in both Senate and Pelosi s Chambers and they think they are unstoppable and untouchable

    2. Yes!Tell Pelosi to resign
      So that we can sing”Oh happy DAY ” and wave our Red, White and Blue!
      I’m God we Trust Flag!

    1. The problem with drowning them is a waste of good water! To dispose of the water would pollute the water for miles around!

  4. Biden became a fraudulent. President.

    The Supreme Court is also a joke. What exactly do they do???? Sit on a bench and
    Collect money for nothing!!! Disgraceful! !!
    America is crumbling at the controll
    of the
    Demonrats and the rest of the slime in
    our so called. Government!!
    Government!

  5. Pelosi is another Senile Fool that’s been in Washington way too long, she’s another problem that plagues issues concerning our country and we’ll bring, she’s a liar, a thief, and needs to go, these clowns tend to get elected and once there get re-elected, these IDIOT’S should have term limits, just like PRESIDENT, they’re not special or immune from getting recalled and should face consequences

  6. It’s ok folks, Schumer will take Nancy out for a liquid lunch and convince her to drink lots of Brown Pop as usual.
    If she doesn’t obey after that, Chuck will run the House and the Senate to get things done.
    100% of Liberals will agree.

  7. Maybe he is got something on them and they don’t want know one to know maybe it has to do with the voting and how they cheated. Cuomo has something ups he’s sleves and it has to do with the four horsemen ( BIDEN ,HARRIS ,SCHUMER,AND PELOSI)

  8. A damb stumbling bumbling BIDEN has caused all of this border mess, aided by all the left Piglosi, Shummer, Como is just as crooked an lien bastard as all of them. He needs to take ahole brother along with BIDEN Pedophial an all go to CHINA. Then drag PIGLOSI-Shummer OBAMA-SOROS-NEWSOM- oh an HARRIS all with them. The country would be a nicer place to live in if all them cooked people would go live in CHINA

  9. According to a new press release, film producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney will be soon releasing a film exposing President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden for his “wild life and dodgy business dealings.” The film, which is titled “My Son Hunter” and will feature Hunter Biden’s drug abuse, alcohol abuse and corrupt business dealings. “The media and big tech covered up the bombshell report by The New York Post that showed the depth of corruption in the Biden family,” McAleer said in a statement. “The truth deserves to be told and it needs to be seen by as many people as possible. An entertaining and enjoyable movie is the best way to tell the story of the Biden family’s corruption and to ensure as many people are educated about this as possible. If the media won’t do their jobs, we’ll do it for them.”

  10. Why would she call for his resignation, Pelosi, Biden, Harris & many other Democrats are as guilty or more guilty for same crimes Cuomo has done & even worse crimes like treason, inciting riots, destroying our country etc., etc.
    These Democrats are mostly criminal thugs run by their leader Pelosi, Mafia, Commie, liar, hater & dictator! She is a disgusting person!! Or as my Grandmother would have called her a Puttana!
