FBI Zeroes In On New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Aides; Another Accuser Comes Forward: Reports


The FBI reportedly has its sights set on New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo and his aides in an investigation into his handling of nursing homes in the state amid the coronavirus pandemic. The New York Times reported on Friday that the investigation has focused in recent weeks on the governor and his aides and whether they provided false information to the Department of Justice about the number of deaths that occurred in nursing homes. “Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation have contacted lawyers for Mr. Cuomo’s aides, interviewed senior officials from the state Health Department and subpoenaed Mr. Cuomo’s office for documents related to the disclosure of data last year, the people said,” the Times reported. “The interviews have included questions about information New York State submitted last year to the Justice Department, which had asked the state for data on Covid-19 cases and deaths in nursing homes, according to the people. False statements in such a submission could constitute a crime.”
