Biden DOJ won’t probe COVID-19 nursing home deaths in Democrat-led states

The Biden Justice Department announced in a series of letters on Friday that it would not probe possible civil rights violations stemming from the decisions of three Democrat governors during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic that resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly individuals in nursing homes, as the New York Post reports.

According to a letter sent by the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs to Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), ranking member of the House Subcommittee on the Cornonavirus Crisis, the administration stated that it was not pursuing further investigation of decisions made by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in March of 2020 requiring nursing homes to admit known COVID-19-positive individuals discharged from hospital facilities.

The DOJ had previously requested records related to the outcomes of those decisions, including the number of deaths thought to have resulted from them, not just from New York, but also from Democrat-led Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey, states which implemented similar rules during the coronavirus crisis, according to the Post.

In a letter from Deputy Assistant Attorney General Joe Gaeta, the DOJ declared, “We have reviewed the information provided by these states along with additional information available to the Department. Based on that review, we have decided not to open a [Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act] investigation of any public nursing facility within New York, Pennsylvania, or Michigan at this time.” The Federalist reported that those three states also received individual letters letting them off the hook.

The move was swiftly blasted by Scalise, who said in a statement that it is “outrageous that the Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly ‘must admit’ orders issued by governors in new York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan that resulted in the deaths of thousands of senior citizens.”

“Where is the justice for nursing home victims and their grieving families?” Scalise asked, adding, “Grieving families deserve answers and accountability. It’s unconscionable that Biden’s Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly actions that went against CDC’s medical guidance taken in these states.”

Among those infuriated by the administration’s decision to turn a blind eye to the unnecessary deaths resulting from the governors’ disastrous COVID-19 policies was House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik of New York, who said in a statement, “This decision from President Biden’s Department of Justice makes President Biden complicit in the criminal corruption scandal and coverup of deaths of thousands of vulnerable seniors.”

Stefanik’s comments were in reference to additional probes of Cuomo’s conduct currently being conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn as well as the FBI, which are exploring allegations that his administration engaged in a cover-up of the true total of nursing home deaths occurring while his controversial policies were in effect.

Reminding Americans of the tragic human toll taken by these governors’ policies and decrying the DOJ’s decision, Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean – whose own in-laws died in nursing homes due to the virus – declared Friday “a terrible day for thousands of families,” and added, “There will be no justice for our loved ones, and it feels like we’ve lost them all over again.”

Thank you democRATs for “cutting your own throats”, “shooting yourself in the foot” one more time, “turning a blind eye to the obvious” and whatever other cliche you can come up with. Probably half of those who died were democrat, so just look at the voters who may have been related to them, good friends of them or friends of the family who are as disgusted as everyone else. Another long list of voters going Republican.Thank you, thank you, thank you and don’t let the door hit you in the posterior on the way out!

As horrible and disgusting as this decision is, I believe NY is the worst and most criminal in these loss of lives. I say this because Cuomo had that beautiful, brand new, fully equipped and fully staffed hospital ship to use. He could have used it for the seniors and most vulnerable only. He had absolutely no reason to send them to nursing homes. The heartache of all these deaths is incomprehensible and this lousy criminal decision by Joe’s DOJ compounds the heartbreak even more deeply and intensely. How do these asses even sleep at night?!

Why in the world would he call off the investigation. Because to the dems, those people aren’t important. But those responsible are important? It doesn’t make any sense. Who in their right mind would agree with calling off the investigation. Just the left.

My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $71600… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet.

Those families need to unite together and hire an investigator to investigate that DOJ incompetent troll that dares to say case closed! They need to hire someone to reopen the case and make sure these snakes are held accountable including that idiot DOJ! Another example of those in their way to hell incompetents that lets Democrats get away with murder!

Ok now I know he not only has dementia but is officially INSANE!!! If it happened here in Florida he would there would be an investigation and someone would be going to prison. Just because they are Democrats doesn’t mean there is any excuse for sending the elderly to their death and getting away with it. If it were my family that died from Covid, I would do everything in my power to bring them to justice!!!! Basically he just legalized death by Covid and if you happen to be a Democrat Governor your off the hook. Why can’t Biden be impeached for putting America and Americans at risk???? Maybe Biden might get the variant!!! We couldn’t get that lucky but then we would have Kamala. Maybe we could get a special… 2 for one deal!!

This is a serious injustice to all those families who lost family members because of Democratic leaders poor judgement and putting seniors in dyer danger. Those leaders who put Covid patients back into the facilities SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THOSE DEATHS, The neglect of the danger to those who have died as well as workers in those facilities need justice. DOJ get out of Biden”s ass and do your dam job.DO THE RIGHT THING

BY SAYING THAT THERE WOULD BE NO INVESTIGATIONS IN THESE DEM/FRAUD STATES IS SAYING IT WAS OK THE THE GOVERNORS TO ORDER THESE PEOPLE TO BE SENT TO A PLACE KNOWING THAT THEY WOULD DIE????????? ALSO, THIS MEANS THAT THESE GOVERNORS DO NOT CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO THE CITIZENS OF THEIR STATES???????? AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT DEMS/FRAUDS IT DOES NOT MATTER THAT THEY DIED?????? THEY WERE NOT IMPORTANT????????? CONGRATS TO THE DEMENTIA FOOL IN CHARGE????????

DPJ just proved that they are biased and following the leftist movement to not try anyone for anything that would prove the right correct. They are not an American DOJ, they are a leftist DOJ.

I guess if your death is not a political advantage to the dumocrats – you are not important enough for their time. Or the evidence is so damning they can’t bring the light of day to these people’s horrific treatment and death. I don’t see any other options

What did you expect from the Biden Administration? This is the same Administration that says the “border is closed”.
Allow unvaccinated people to enter the country illegally, while the legal entrance to Canada and Mexico.
Backs school unions over parents.
Exonerated a killing of a unarmed white woman by capitial police, but quickly condemns police ‘brutality’ against actual armed rioters who try to burn Federal Building with federal workers in it. What would you expect from the MOST hypocritical Administration in American history!

Guarantee if they had been republican governors , they would have been hung by now. Stop looking at the party they are and just prosecute the crime. It’s a crime no matter how you vote.

When a political party (AKA DEMOCRATS) can so nonchalantly be the party that happily oversees the death of hundreds of thousands of innocents a year, claiming to be “catholic” or “christian” and forcing taxpayers to pay for the death and attempting to strongarm religious institutions into accepting their culture of death, then this should not be a surprise. It is time to wake up and see that these people are evil and anything that they support or touch will be based in the evil that compels them to seek power, money and control.

The “Biden” administration will never pursue any justice regarding any matter. They are the problem which is why they stole the election. They want to destroy America 100% and are complicit with our enemies, the CCP, having taken massive bribes from them.
