Republicans in the New York Assembly have initiated impeachment proceedings against Governor Andrew Cuomo over his policies killing scores of nursing home residents by housing them with COVID-19 patients, and then allegedly obstructing the subsequent investigation.
They want to form an impeachment commission that will investigate Cuomo’s alleged crimes and present a body of evidence showing the need to remove the embattled Democrat boss.
“The Cuomo Administration’s nursing home cover-up is one of the most alarming scandals we’ve seen in state government,” Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay said in a statement.
“It is incumbent upon the Legislature to undertake a comprehensive, bipartisan review of the Cuomo Administration’s policies, decisions and actions on this matter and render a decision on what steps must be taken to hold the governor accountable,” Barclay added.
