The White House signaled on Friday that it would support an investigation into New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s alleged cover-up of nursing home COVID deaths, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.
After a reporter asked Psaki to react to reports that Cuomo aides covered up some of the deaths, she said, “We’ve certainly seen those reports. Obviously, they’re troubling and we certainly would support any outside investigation, but those wouldn’t be determined by us.”
It would be a violation of law if Cuomo directed aides to withhold or alter data on nursing home deaths, or if he knew about them doing so and didn’t report it.
It seems that Cuomo’s usefulness to the Democrat party has ended, otherwise they would probably not be willing to throw him under the bus like this.
Really, though, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
