FBI probing whether Cuomo aides provided false data on nursing home deaths: Report

Though the lion’s share of reporting in recent days about embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has centered on the growing list of women accusing him of sexual misconduct, there is another serious line of inquiry afoot that also poses a serious threat to his political future.

According to reporting from the New York Times, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is in the process of probing whether Cuomo aides provided false information concerning the true number of deaths that occurred in nursing homes across the state amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The New York Post further reported that the FBI as well as federal prosecutors in Brooklyn have been in contact with attorney’s representing Cuomo staffers, have conducted interviews with officials from the state Health Department, and issued subpoenas to the governor’s office seeking documents in relation to the probe.

According to the Post, the inquiry stems from data submitted to the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) last summer pertaining to COVID-19 cases and deaths in nursing homes throughout New York. While the investigation initially focused on certain members of Cuomo’s coronavirus advisory group, it has since shifted toward the governor himself and his top aides.

Prior reporting revealed that data provided to the DOJ in July of 2020 referenced just those nursing home residents who died due to COVID-19 while in those facilities and not those who perished after a transfer to a hospital, an adjustment that served to disguise the true number of deaths.

As the Post reported separately back in February, top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa admitted to providing incomplete data on nursing home deaths, citing a fear that the real numbers would “be used against” the administration by federal prosecutors.

As justification for the move, DeRosa blamed former President Donald Trump, who she said had turned the issue “into a giant political football,” adding:

He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes. He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.

News of the FBI probe only adds to the pressure continuing to mount on Cuomo, with the New York Times reporting that an eighth woman – a current aide to the governor – has now come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

In a potentially foreboding sign for Cuomo, even President Joe Biden – who had stayed relatively quiet on the governor’s controversies early on – weighed in on his possible fate on Tuesday, telling ABC’s George Stephanopoulous that if harassment and inappropriate touching claims against him are borne out by investigators, not only should he resign, but “he’ll probably end up being prosecuted, too.”

  6. There was so much crime done and nothing happened to nobody they all damn dem. Should be jailed all those names and you all know which those are where is justice how can we trust voting system again not me anymore 🤬🤮

  7. So, Caligula Cuomo is going to finally get his! Don’t bet on it! Do bet on a crooked justice system letting him weasel out of 15.000 unnecessary deaths & countless “free feels”! Even if he’s convicted, bet on a crooked judge giving him something like “house arrest” for life! What a pathetic joke!

  8. I still want to know what ever happened with Hunter Biden and his computer, Daddy Joe Biden, and their China connection. Why aren’t we hearing any more about this IMPORTANT issue????????????

  9. If the FBI is involved nothing is going to happen. They no longer exist to fight the real criminals.

  10. It was not matter how many deaths ! What matters is that he sent
    Them back to nursing home noing they wood die! It’s still murder
    One in anybody’s book!……so ya the Dems are trying to keep that
    Killer in play and even the california newson! Ya the gop needs to get bigger balls to get this big fish in jail or out of office…..

  11. I used to think having the FBI investigate you and that’s probably still true if you are a Republican but if you are a Democrat you are surely to be found innocent. So now we know Cuomo will walk on both issuses.

  12. No Dumocruds are in trouble any time any where in the USA. It just doesn’t happen to them because our whole government is as corrupt as
    they and our voting system is. If this were not true, the likes of Hillary and Biden and family would be in jail long ago.

  13. So the Democrats are turning their fangs on their own. Can’t imagine they are all that outraged about his abusive behavior. NO!!! It must be something more important than that! Like it’s more about replacing him with a big liberal. Coumo was too “conservative” for New York!!!

    1. I think the democrats were afraid re his popularity during the summer, which may have encouraged him to run for president in 2024. From what I’ve read about him, he seems to be a rather forceful man. No one could push him around like they’re doing with Biden.

  14. The Governor and the Mayor of NYC will BOTH BE GOING DOWN IN FLAMES, and WILL NEVER BE HEARD FROM AGAIN! Good news for NY and NYC, “maybe” its time for NY, MI, IL, CA, WA, and OR to look at a REPUBLICAN as most states DO SEEM to run BETTER with a REPUBLICAN in charge and “even better” a Republican who has a “BUSINESS Back Round” not one that has been in POLITICS. If I was in one of those states I WOULD SURE give it a LOOK!!!

  15. The Lt. governor needs to be prosecuted with Cuomo and anyone in Cuomo’s office that worked for him.

  16. Blaming Trump for low number of deaths reported in nursing homes is criminal. Hard to believe that young lady said she falsified death numbers because she was afraid Trump would attack Coumo’s administration!! Really pathetic.

  17. FBI ARE SCUMBAGS TOO. They cover up DEMONCRAPS CORRUPT MESSES. You can’t trust the FBI—need to clean house in this area as well.

    1. Correct. We have a corrupt govt. I am guessing 95 percent of govt are liberal Democrats and a lot of military leadership are liberals. GOD help us !

    1. I now have no respect for those governing the USA. THE southern border of Texas is being inundated with illegal, sick and children without parents. THIS NEEDS TO BE STOPPED!

    1. The democrats are THE problem,but how AMERICANS deal with it is a bigger problem.Until the real AMERICANS figure out how to deal with peeloosli and”ITS”cult,we will not be in a winning position.This entity that loves some other country needs”ITS”attitude changed to AMERICA.Read my lips peeloosli,this IS AMERICA,LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT.I would prefer that you leave it.

      1. I wish they would vote her out but I doubt it will ever happen soon as Trump starts this new campaign she will be at it again just like she did before and won’t do any thing to help the American just like Biden when he signed all of those excetive orders and cut every thing out that Trump did to help us he is not in his right mind any and won’t be in there long if all this keeps up
