New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is in a world of trouble. It’s all falling apart as even some Democrats are turning on him over the COVID nursing home scandal that has exploded in recent days.
Republicans in the state are already moving to impeach Cuomo.
Who is going to come to his rescue?
NY GOP Assemblymen Have Begun the Process of Impeaching Cuomo
New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s problems are piling up like bodies at a New York nursing home.
In late January, New York Attorney General Letitia James published a report finding the New York Department of Health underreported COVID-19 deaths in New York nursing homes by as much as 50 percent. Then last week, a top aide for the governor admitted that the administration withheld data regarding nursing home deaths from state lawmakers.
On Wednesday, the governor was hit with a double whammy. News broke about a federal probe looking into the governor’s task force and its former policy of sending Covid-infected patients into nursing homes. Then, a number of Democratic leaders in the State Senate indicated their intention to strip the governor of his emergency powers. To top it all off, Republicans in the New York Assembly have now officially begun the process of impeaching the governor.
State Assembly Republicans started the process on Thursday of forming an impeachment commission to gather evidence surrounding the administration’s policy of sending covid-infected patients into nursing homes and long-term care facilities.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if Cuomo is impeached after everything the Democrats tried to do to Trump?

If Democrats were honest about using impeachment to remove corrupt officials, they need look no further than Cuomo who hid COVID nursing home death count. .
