Disgraced former New York governor Andrew Cuomo will not be charged even though investigators found that the “allegations and witnesses were credible” from the alleged victims who levied charges of harassment against Cuomo.
District Attorney Mimi Rocah made the announcement on Tuesday that Cuomo would not be charged.
“Our investigation found credible evidence to conclude that the alleged conduct in both instances…did occur. However, in both instances, my Office determined that, although the allegations and witnesses were credible, and the conduct concerning, we cannot pursue criminal charges due to the statutory requirements of the criminal laws of New York. The conclusion is unrelated to any possible civil liability beyond the scope of a District Attorney’s jurisdiction, which focuses solely on criminal laws,” Rocah said.
“”We continue to recognize the bravery of the women and witnesses who have cooperated with law enforcement and we remain committed to supporting them and all survivors,” she added.

“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hid data on the impact of his nursing home quarantine policy to avert scrutiny from federal investigators. Cuomo had forced New York nursing homes to admit patients who were COVID-positive, in a medical disaster since determined to have unnecessarily cost the lives of thousands of senior citizens in the state.
The New York Post reported that a Cuomo aide admitted as such as Democratic New York state legislators on Thursday. Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa admitted that research related to the nursing home policy was spiked directly in response to criticism of the policy on the part of President Donald Trump.
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said of Trump, referencing presidential tweets questioning the nursing home policy in August. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”
“Then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”
A Queens Democrat assemblyman described DeRosa’s remarks as no less than revealing an attempt to avert federal scrutiny, preventing New York’s policy makers from learning of the deadly ramifications of the nursing home policy in the process.
“[it’s] like they admitted that they were trying to dodge having any incriminating evidence that might put the administration or the [Health Department] in further trouble with the Department of Justice,” said Ron Kim.”
Regardless of the excuses, prosecutors declining to charge Cuomo shows that there is a two-tiered justice system in America. Democrats get away with crimes routinely as the rule of law is destroyed by far-left extremists.
