New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is best remembered as one of a handful of governors that killed thousands of senior citizens with a disastrous nursing home decree. But
“We have to knock on those doors, and we have to convince people, put them in cars & drive them and get that vaccine in their arm,” Cuomo said. “That is the mission.”
The governor’s phrasing of the “mission” to convince people to get vaccinated sounds a lot like intimidation is on the table.
At least 69% of the American public has at least one vaccination shot, and Dr. Fauci has even conceded that a threshold of 70% is enough to bring the pandemic to a standstill. COVID-19 is projected to have a 99.7% survival rate, based on extremely loose mortality figure criteria.
Until recently, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was under investigation for his role in covering up COVID-19 related nursing home deaths stemming from his deadly March 2020 executive order.
The Department of Justice recently announced that it is no longer probing governors’ nursing home decrees, including Governor Cuomo’s.
“The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division will not be launching investigations into nursing homes in New York and other states whose governors forced facilities to admit COVID-19 patients despite their vulnerable populations, the agency informed GOP lawmakers Friday,” Fox News reported.
“However, an investigation by federal prosecutors into New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his administration over their handling of the crisis remains ongoing,” the report added.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is under investigation for his role in covering up COVID-19 related nursing home deaths stemming from his deadly executive order.
Cuomo’s self-aggrandizing book, “American Crisis: Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic,” is even considered potential evidence in the probe.
“The U.S. Department of Justice has subpoenaed material connected to a memoir written by the Democratic governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, as part of an investigation into a possible cover-up of COVID deaths in the state’s nursing homes,” the Daily Mail reported in June.
“Prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York are said to have requested communications associated with Cuomo’s book, American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic,” the report noted.
“The DOJ is said to be after a host of materials that would have been used during the pitching process to publishers – including various contracts and documents,” the report added.
In February, the FBI and DOJ launched investigations into Governor Cuomo’s alleged cover-up of nursing home deaths.
In late January, the governor was exposed by his own Attorney General Letitia James. The dam burst open in February when the New York Post obtained a leak from Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa that indicates his motive for hiding data that showed nursing home resident mortality rates were 40% higher than reported was to avoid scrutiny from the Trump DOJ.
