The U.S. Department of Justice has reportedly subpoenaed material related to a book that New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo wrote during the pandemic as investigators continue their criminal investigation into coronavirus-related nursing home deaths. “Prosecutors working for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn asked for communications related to Mr. Cuomo’s October 2020 book, ‘American Crisis,’ including contracts and materials used to pitch the book to publishers, the people said,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “They said the subpoenas indicated prosecutors are interested in nursing-home issues in the book, which more broadly recounted the governor’s response to the pandemic.” News broke back in February that federal prosecutors had launched a criminal investigation into the way that the Cuomo administration had handled nursing homes and other long-term care facilities during the pandemic. New York Attorney General Letitia James released a scathing report in late January that found that the Cuomo administration underreported the number of nursing home residents who died from the coronavirus by up to 50%.
