Gov. Cuomo could pardon himself of charges brought against him

Soon to be former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may have a way to pardon himself, according to a former district attorney’s assessment of his case. 

Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy who is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York told the network that there is no law banning the governor from issuing a self-pardon.

The governor is facing charges in cases where investigators found evidence to support claims of sexual assault of multiple victims who claim to have been harassed while Cuomo held office.

McCarthy said he doesn’t think that Cuomo will go the route of trying to pardon himself, but it is still likely an option for the disgraced governor.

“I don’t believe Cuomo would pardon himself, because the groping crime he’s under investigation for in the Commisso complaint is (a) considered a misdemeanor and not very serious (i.e., it’s not considered felony sexual assault), and (b) he has vigorously denied the allegation and a pardon would be tantamount to a confession of guilt,” McCarthy said.

Newsweek reported in 2017 several instances of governors who have pardoned themselves, including a perplexing case in 1911, where Tennessee Gov. B.W. Hooper sentenced himself to two days in prison in order to “study conditions firsthand.”

The Tennessee executive officer pardoned himself the next day, but his case was curious at the very least.

Additionally (and more recently) there were two instances of gubernatorial pardons, including in 1941, Washington Gov. Arthur Langlie, a Republican reportedly unintentionally pardoned himself due to a stenographer’s mistake in a transcription. That was later corrected.

Again in 1956 Democratic governor of Arkansas, Orval Faubus pardoned himself, though of what historical reports seem unsure. What is sure is that the pardon came after the governor had to spend a brief stint in jail.

He won’t have to pardon himself. His buddy, Biden will do it. After all, the bogus president has praised Cuomo for doing a bang up job and governor of New York and the wokesters won’t bat an eye about it. New York Times and Washington Post as well as CNN and MSNBC will praise Creepy Joe for allowing proper justice to be done.

What a kabuki theater. Cuomo a disgraceful piece of Governor should not be allowed back into his office.. You are out … and the Historians, (at least the honest ones will tell the story.) How shameful you have behaved, especially when you cried for President Trump to help you out of that shithole you dug yourself into (we say upper edge of the lower lip) ashamed listening to your lies and miserable explanations of what you have done. The other point is the murders you have committed and willingly took into account what would happen putting covid 19 patients into Nursing Homes. I don’t know how one can live with that on your conscience ?? Thank God – he will have more mercy than I would.

To pardon himself would make a mockery of justice for the many women he has abused & assaulted! He needs prison time! Plus, it would help restore a little integrity to the present justice system! It would make a joke of New York!

Just watch. Nothing will be done about that. The relatives of those he killed (murdered)should file a class action lawsuit against him.

He will never be brought up on charges for all those murders. The reason he is being ousted now is so that the dims can keep the nursing home debacle Under Wraps. Cuomo has outlived his usefulness which is why he has been thrown under the bus. These sexual harassment complaints AR not new but the left is using them to draw attention away from the nursing home scandal.
