Joe Biden’s stumbling presidency absorbed another body blow.
This time a criminal investigation is bad news for his party.
And now the FBI may send this close Joe Biden ally to jail over these suspicious deaths.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is feeling the heat.
It’s not just Republicans bashing him on a daily basis for how he covered up the death of more than 12,000 New York seniors in nursing homes from COVID.
The FBI is now investigating the Cuomo administration for how it handled the nursing home tragedy and reports that it refused to turn over information to state and federal authorities over fear the documents would be used as part of a criminal investigation.
The Albany Times Union reports:
The FBI and the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn have launched an investigation that is examining, at least in part, the actions of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s coronavirus task force in its handling of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities during the pandemic, the Times Union has learned.
The probe by the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of New York is apparently in its early stages and is focusing on the work of some of the senior members of the governor’s task force, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter who is not authorized to comment publicly.
This scandal exploded after the New York Post reported that Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, told a group of top Democrats that the Cuomo administration did not turn over information about the true number of deaths in nursing homes from coronavirus out of fear it would help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and that the Justice Department would use it as evidence in any criminal investigation.
Back in March of 2020, Governor Cuomo signed an order mandating nursing homes take in coronavirus patients.
The state of New York reported just 6,000 COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes.
But most everyone knew the administration was lying.
However, the Democrat propagandist press ignored the story because Cuomo was a useful foil to attack Donald Trump with over his handling of the pandemic.
Shortly after this story broke the media quickly abandoned it again to focus on a completely fake and manufactured scandal over Ted Cruz flying to Cancun with his daughters.
Cuomo’s allies in the activist media are trying to sweep this scandal under the rug after publishing one or two perfunctory stories to claim they covered this calamity.
That is not going to be enough.
The FBI is investigating the catastrophe in New York nursing homes and Cuomo’s made enough enemies to ensure that ugly details will continue to leak out.
