ALBANY — A new hotline has been established for people to provide information to the New York State Assembly impeachment investigation of Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The telephone and email hotline is for those who want to confidentially give information relevant to the Assembly hearing.
The impeachment investigation will look into how the Governor handled the coronavirus pandemic, sexual harassment claims made against him, and safety of New York State bridges.
The law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP is leading the probe.
Some have been critical of the Assembly’s choice to use Davis Polk due to the firm’s past affiliation with a Cuomo political appointee.
However, members of the state assembly defended the choice by saying the firm has conducted several investigations into allegations of sexual misconduct, anti-corruption, and financial crimes.
The impeachment investigation is being conducted as New York State Attorney General Letitia James is also overseeing an investigation into sexual harassment allegations made against Cuomo. T
Those who want to provide information for the Assembly investigation may contact Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP either by email at NY.Assembly.Investigation@davispolk.com or by phone (212) 450-3600.
