Manhattan DA Won’t Charge Andrew Cuomo Over COVID Nursing Home Deaths

Manhattan DA Won’t Charge Andrew Cuomo Over COVID Nursing Home Deaths

I hope the office will explain how and why they came to this decision.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office decided not to charge former Gov. Andrew Cuomo over the nursing home deaths during the COVID pandemic:

Cuomo’s spokesman forwarded a statement from Elkan Abromowitz, an attorney who represented the governor’s office.

“I was contacted today by the head of the Elder Care Unit from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, who informed me they have closed its investigation involving the Executive Chamber and nursing homes,” the statement read. “I was told that after a thorough investigation – as we have said all along – there was no evidence to suggest that any laws were broken.”

Gee, I wonder why the district attorney’s office hasn’t returned any requests for comments. I want to know how and why they came to this conclusion.

Cuomo forced nursing homes to take in residents who were discharged after they had COVID and “medically stable” COVID patients.

Officials said 6,432 people died. We found out that Cuomo’s aides spent months overruling state health officials with the actual numbers.

The New York Attorney General’s office said that the full data on the nursing home deaths “might have undercounted the true toll by as much as 50 percent”

The true number could be closer to 10,000.

The New York State Bar Association’s Task Force on Nursing Homes and Long-Term Care’s 242-page report confirmed Cuomo’s directive led to more deaths, but could not provide an exact number. The force also slammed Cuomo for keeping the mandate around a lot longer than needed.

The FBI and U.S. Attorney in Brooklyn still have an investigation going into the matter.

So while Cuomo escaped New York charges the feds could still charge him.

Color me shocked. Shocked.

    Danged Democrat in the prosecutor’s office! That’s why! Democrats can literally get away with murder! Surely there’s some legal gymnastics that one can engage in to get his sorry rear end!

    There was never any intention of prosecuting Cuomo for anything. They just wanted to get him out of politics, not put him in prison. They surely wouldn’t prosecute him for this if they did want to lock him away — too many other Democrat officials would be drawn into it (including those who did the same things in other states).

    Knock me over with a feather.

    On the other hand, the SDNY wants to go grenade fishing in President Trump’s tax returns, with zero evidence of any wrongdoing (or admission that the IRS doesn’t do its job).

It’s an easy decision for the DA since he’s biased and corrupt, but it’s the correct decision nevertheless.

First Law
A Democrat Official may not injure another Democrat Official or, through inaction, allow a Democrat Official to come to harm.
Second Law
A Democrat Official must obey the orders given it by the Party except where such orders would harm a higher ranking Democrat Official.
Third Law
A Democrat Official must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

With apologies to Isaac Asimov.

Too busy thinking about Orangeman Bad. Must get him and his family. Besides they only wanted to sideline Cuomo Incase they need him later,

The FBI must be checking his garage doors for rope pulls, Seriously Soi Boys need to learn to code.

Key words “didn’t break any law”. Their thinking is he had the authority to issue the mandate – rhey didn’t want to open the door as to what were the consequences. That people might die from it being followed? Well, they probably reasoned that people in retirement homes already tend to die in retirement homes, so they weren’t going to work hard to build an argument of causation.

Expect no explanation – especially when the outcome is already determined beforehand,

    They probably didnt look to deeply in to the reasons why Cuomo did what he did. Answering the question around how placing people in harms way DELIBERATELY would open a whole other can o worms no Democrat wants…well…opened.

Of course they won’t indict him – that would make the government responsible for every single death he caused with that mandate. That’s money.

Antifundamentalist | January 3, 2022 at 6:13 pm

This is also why Leftists are able to pull up statistics and say things like “more republicans in office are indicted every year than democrats in office.” Well, when you have the DOJ on your side, that’s the expected result.

.hope the office will explain how and why they came to this decision.

Because he’s Andrew Mark Quomo, that’s why. Get back in your place, peasant!

The DoJ and FBI are investigating? OK then. I hope they’ve not been forced to move agents from their garage door pull-down investigations.

Andrew is losing sleep. For sure.

What a farking joke.

“So while Cuomo escaped New York charges the feds could still charge him.”

I’ll take “Things that aren’t going to happen” for $1000.

As Will Smith said in “Men in Black 3″…”The point of a joke is that it’s supposed to be funny.”

Move along, all you racists, insurrectionists, and white supremacists.
Nothing to see here.

I have said this before. Her name was Fran. She died, alone, in a Suffolk County nursing home. He is a murderer, charges, laws, notwithstanding,,, I don’t care. Surely he will face judgement.

Liberals protecting liberals. Imagine that.

planned parent/hood in several Democrat districts, including New York, Michigan, etc. Perhaps granny was no longer viable, a “burden”, even.

It’s a big club.

    That was one of Carlin’s most on-point bits. What will it take for people to see it. They always close ranks when it’s their collective interest. “Vacks mandates for you, but not for us. Obamacare for you, but not for us. Don’t take that Ivermectin, but we can”

What a surprise … the communists won’t charge a communist for their genocide.

We’re living in the most corrupt times in American history.
We’re not coming out of this in one piece. It’s just too late.

Of course not. /eyeroll

Who’s investigating Trump, because he might have broken a law, somewhere?

Victor Immature | January 4, 2022 at 4:54 am

Just chalk all those deaths up to “Lessons in Leadership”.’

So, it’s official: Murdering senior citizens is legal in the state of New York.

I dare say deaths due to this are well in excess of 10k. But we will never know because Democrats never investigate their own.

Steven Brizel | January 4, 2022 at 6:07 am

What a disgraceful decision! Millions to conduct fishing expeditions of Trump but not a penny to investigate real and odious corruption by Cuomo!!

I wouldn’t hold my breath for federal charges either. Merrick Garland is a Demoncrap, so he won’t do anything to hurt his own party’s standing.

Char Char Binks | January 4, 2022 at 10:20 am

DA is keeping priorities straight — killing grannies may not be strictly good, but groping a boob is the worst crime imaginable!

Char Char Binks | January 4, 2022 at 10:27 am

cuomo should be hit with 10,000 lawsuits, starting with the families of the octogenarians who were beaten to death by the racist criminal vicenarian he sent to live with them.

Forget class action, cuomo needs to face these suits one after the other until he commits suicide.

    Char Char Binks in reply to Char Char Binks. | January 4, 2022 at 10:29 am

    Okay, the beatings in question happened in Michigan. The only thing that changes is that Whitmer should get pretty much the same treatment.

Why am I not surprised?

These New York prosecutors have REALLY convinced us they are all about upholding the rule of law.

Someone needs to tell Gotham City New Yorkers that by continuing to elect Bane as AG and to DA Offices, they are the ones who made Batman move to Florida.
