ALBANY – The group of lawmakers tasked with leading the impeachment investigation into Governor Andrew Cuomo is set to meet on Wednesday.
The Assembly Judiciary Committee Chairman, Charles Lavine, reports over 100 tips have been submitted so far and legal experts are following up on relevant leads.
In March, the Assembly moved to form the Judiciary Committee to lead an impeachment investigation into Cuomo’s alleged misconduct: workplace sexual harassment, inappropriate touching, fudging nursing home death numbers, and taking shortcuts to complete the Mario Cuomo Bridge.
They’ve also added other issues that have emerged since early March, like executive staff “volunteering” to write Cuomo’s book.
Lawmakers say the committee is committed to a fair investigation that respects the due process of accused and accuser alike.
The committee served formal notice to the Executive Chamber on March 15, telling them not to retaliate against any potential witnesses.
