Adam Schiff joins chorus of Democrats calling for Cuomo to resign

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has joined the chorus of Democrats calling for embattled Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign, Breitbart reports

During an appearance on CNN’s Situation Room, Schiff said he agrees with his Democratic colleagues who are “closer” to the scandalous state of affairs surrounding the governor.

“I think that my colleagues from New York are right,” he said, according to Breitbart. “It probably is time for him to step down. They’re closer to the situation than I am.”

Schiff continued: “But I have confidence that if they’ve made the judgment that he can’t govern anymore, that he doesn’t have their confidence or the confidence of New Yorkers to do that, and in light of the seriousness of the allegations of sexual assault or harassment, then I don’t think he can carry on, and in the best interest of the people of New York, he should resign. So, I think they’ve reached the right judgment and they’re in a position to know.”

Background

Cuomo is currently facing calls for his resignation following two scandals in which he is at the center.

In March 2020, Cuomo issued an order that forced nursing homes to accept COVID-19-positive patients, exposing thousands of vulnerable elderly people to the disease. In February, almost a year later, it was revealed that the Cuomo administration had covered up the real number of those who had died in the homes.

After the cover-up was investigated, it appears as if upwards of 15,000 or more nursing home residents died due to COVID-19 infections since the pandemic began, a much higher figure than the Cuomo administration had reported.

After endlessly praising Cuomo for his handling of the pandemic in New York last year, Democrats overwhelmingly turned a blind eye to the nursing home scandal. The situation became impossible to ignore, however, when several former female employees and a reporter stepped forward in recent weeks to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior.

The latest

There are now bipartisan calls for Cuomo to resign, including from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

Cuomo, however, has remained defiant. In fact, on Friday, he went on the offensive against those calling for his resignation.

“The people of New York should not have confidence in a politician who takes a position without knowing any facts or substance,” Cuomo said, according to The Washington Post. “Do I think it is responsible to take a position on a serious allegation before you have any facts? No, I don’t think it is responsible.”

The situation has gotten so bad that many of Cuomo’s staffers are no longer showing up for work, Fox News reported.

And that’s what the politicians hated about Trump. The politicians prefer to be sneaky back stabbers instead.
