Cuomo aide tells NY Democrats administration hid nursing home data to keep it from Trump DOJ: Report
Newly released data shows that nursing home #deaths were higher than #previously reported
A top aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told leading state Democratic lawmakers that the administration had withheld data on COVID-19 deaths at nursing homes to avoid federal scrutiny, according to a bombshell new report.
The revelation prompted condemnations and even talk of impeachment in Albany, the state’s capital. Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., wants the Department of Justice to open an obstruction of justice investigation.
“The families of thousands of dead New York seniors deserve accountability and justice for the true consequences of Governor Cuomo’s fatally flawed nursing home policy and the continued attempts to cover it up. It’s clear what’s happening here is criminal,” he said.
I don’t know who is #worse. A doctor that #operates on a patient knowing there is nothing wrong with the patient; Or the governor that would #suppresses vital information from the public that would make him look bad and put the jacket on (Trump) someone else??
According to Rep. Lee Zeldin; what Cuomo did was criminal and needs to be #prosecuted.
This cover-up by Cuomo was tied in with the attack on Trump to keep him, from getting re-elected. The CCC governor must have felt that the cover-up would be his contribution to their twisted cause.
What is #worse; the #deliberate cover-up of #1,000’s-of-deaths, keeping their suffering and demise from their families or some of the #petty-bull-shit TRUMPED charges they tried to impose in PDT and never made any of them stick?? If Trump’s actions should be considered a sin, Cuomo’s actions should be considered a sacrilege.
I compare; Trump’s situation as the new sheriff in town to the cop #Frank-Serpico that wanted to make the world right. In the process, his own people tried to kill him.
In the movie; Frank Serpico played by Al Pacino was an idealistic New York City cop who refuses to take bribes, unlike the rest of the force. His actions get Frank shunned by the other officers, and often placed in dangerous situations by his partners. When his superiors ignore Frank’s accusations of corruption, he decides to go public with the allegations. Although this causes the Knapp Commission to investigate his claims, Frank has also placed a target on himself. Like Trump. Serpico could not be bought off.
What does that tell us?? Being there is so much corruption in this world; GETTING WORSE BY THE DASY; the bad guys are winning the war. In general, people are afraid to speak up or due the right thIng while everyone around them are corrupted.
What a legacy we are leaving behind for the younger generations. SHAMEFUL
If you have not seen this excellent movie; take a look and see the comparisons between Serpico, the straight cop and the you can’t buy me president.
I don’t know if I agree there is a heaven or hell; if there is such places, there is a special seat for guys like Cuomo.
Will justice ever be served?? AYSM!!!
