Biden still refuses to call for Cuomo’s resignation amid sexual misconduct claims

Countless high-profile Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), have called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to resign amid a staggering number of women leveling accusations of sexual harassment against him.

However, the one Democrat who could actually have enough political weight to convince the embattled governor to resign, President Joe Biden, took the easy road when asked recently whether or not Cuomo should depart the office, suggesting that he’s more interested in letting the investigations play out, according to the Washington Examiner

Last week, just as the president was taking a step off of Marine One and make his way into the White House, a reporter managed to shout out a question about the ongoing Cuomo controversy, asking the 46th president if he felt Cuomo should resign.

“I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us,” Biden said, which was rare form given that the 46th president typically doesn’t take many unscripted questions from members of the press.

The reporters curious about Biden’s stance on the matter weren’t satisfied, apparently, as the same question was brought up later that day. Biden’s White House chief of staff Ron Klein provided a slightly more detailed version of the president’s take.

“What the president said is that there’s a process. These charges are very serious charges. They ought to be investigated, and that process ought to run its course, and, you know, I think it’s up to the people of New York about Gov. Cuomo’s continuing ability to govern there,” Klein said.

Klein’s answer came on the heels of White House press secretary Jen Psaki mostly dodging the question during recent press briefings.

As of last weekend, a total of seven women — six of whom previously worked for Cuomo — have leveled serious sexual harassment allegations against him, with one of the accusers alleging that she was sexually assaulted by the New York governor.

Between the sexual harassment scandal and the nursing home death scandal that still remains a top issue for many of his critics, it’s not a stretch to presume that Cuomo’s days as governor are limited.

  3. Well of course Biden is gong to take the easy way out, if this was a Republican governor he would be all over it

  4. Of course biden will remain mum on the subject. If he were to call cuomo out, then he too could be under scrutiny for his and his family’s (hunter, his brother, et. al.) and fellow democrats, skulduggery — P U losi in particular. Roaches scurry and hide when the light comes on

  5. But how many democrats or leftist knew about this and more while the pandemic or all along and never said anything.

  6. The reason Biden does not condemn Cuomo is that he is guilty of the same thing and you know the pot can’t call a kettle black!

  7. CUOMO is finished, he’s created more pain and suffering in New York As Governor than allowed by law, resign CUOMO or be taken out buy your feet.

  8. Nursing Home deaths should take priority! Cuomo should resign for his behavior with the Covid 19 problems.
