Legal experts warn Andrew Cuomo could face criminal charges for nursing home scandal

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s underreporting of COVID-19 nursing homes deaths could lead to criminal charges, according to legal experts in a Sunday Fox News report.

Top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa first reported the undercounting of nursing home deaths from the pandemic in a New York Post account. She noted they hid the true number of the state’s death toll out of fear federal prosecutors would use the data against them.

Blaming Trump for making the issue a “political football,” DeRosa noted his plans to have the Department of Justice investigate the issue caused them to “freeze.” She reported. “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.”

Despite DeRosa’s apology, Cuomo may face serious repercussions as families of nursing home victims determine legal options. Between allegedly making false statements to the federal government and attempts to block an investigation, those involved could seriously complicate matters for the governor.

The recent news also contrasts the governor’s strong appearances early in the pandemic. His near-daily briefings criticized the Trump administration and garnered frequent attention from his brother’s CNN network.

In October, Governor Cuomo’s popularity led to the release of a new book called “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.” But the current nursing home death scandal has now changed Cuomo’s favorability among both parties.

The updated list of nursing home deaths in New York is now acknowledged at more than 15,000, almost twice the originally reported statistic. The startling difference will certainly lead to further investigation into the issue, as well as Cuomo’s handling of it.

For a political leader who daily accused Trump of killing Americans due to his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cuomo now appears to be the one under scrutiny. It’s no longer about the political party; this is a life and death issue impacting thousands of nursing home residents and their families.

The media—and the courts—cannot give Cuomo a pass this time. If the allegations are true, he won’t just be headed out of the governor’s house, but perhaps to spend some time behind bars.

    1. Nothing will happen. He will have his mafia guards to protect him and none of the MSM have the balls to do what is right. Next thing you know he will be running for president and the communist news channels will nominate him for sainthood.

      1. I’m sure he is a darling of Bill Gates depopulation initiative. Their outlook is that seniors are a drag on resources and non productive so we have to go. Yes I’m a senior and nonproductive because seniors who want to work are criticized for taking jobs from people who need them.

        1. AS A SENIOR MY SELF, ALTHOUGH COMPANIES DON’T SAY IT OUT LOUD, I’VE BEEN TURNED DOWN BY 38 COMPANIES AS “UNQUALIFIED”. GREETING CUSTOMERS,STOCKING SHELVES, DELIEVERING FOOD I GUESS MUST BE DONE BY QUALIFIED PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 70.. WASN’T IT PART OF OBAMAS OBAMACARE THAT HAD A CLAUSE ABOUT “TAKING CARE OF THE ELDERLY” AS IN GIVE THEM PAIN MEDS,A PAT ON THE HEAD AND SHOVE THEM ASIDE. ON THE GRANIT ENTRANCE HEADER AR THE GATES FOUNDATION IT SAYS “POPULATION CONTROL CENTER”. WONDER IF THERE IS A CONNECTION BETWEEN CUMO,DNC,AND GATES FOUNDATION? HMMMMM!

    2. Didn’t he say at one point seniors had to die from something when questioned about nursing home deaths? Maybe not him but maybe Pa.

    3. Yes!
      Its always “could” , “might”, and “maybe”. This creep is as guilty as he had let these poor elderly die in that nursing home. He needs to spend his life in prison.

    4. With the families getting involved tho that is an entirely different ball of wax! Any lawyer will take this case because it’s against a Respected Politician! There are those that would love to bring this man down and I’m saying he doesn’t deserve it because he does! What he did was he knowingly sent Covid19 sick patients into nursing homes and knew what the outcome would be, death! He committed murder to them! Willingly and knowingly!!

  1. How long do we have to list to that before something is actually done, like sending him to prison where he belongs? Your beginning to sound like a broken record. Either do it or shut up about it.

  2. Cuomo belongs behind bars for all the people he killed. Just like Biden belongs behind bars for destroying America.
    the democrat party committed Treason against America. Hang them all with wire why waste rope on the no goods

      1. Randall, amen to that comment!!
        Firing squads being used just might give dems the idea that they can’t do as they please anymore!!

    1. You are absolutely correct, Donna Marie. Cuomo is guilty of MURDER and tried to disguise it and an award for his work????? I’ll never understand that.

      Biden is a TRAITOR, THIEF, LIAR, PLAGIARIZER. Harris is just as bad if not worse. She doesn’t belong in office either. Even Biden’s appointments are the most EVIL of EVIL. Xavier Bacerra is a MURDER too, as he is complicit in the MURDER of the unborn.

      We must pray that this happens soon. We just can’t take anymore of these horrible people.

    2. Don’t forget to send Trump for the people he killed by doing nothing about the COVID-19 for months while we all waited for it to disappear magically, while he told us it was all under control and we are rounding the corner and the people killed on Jan. 6th.

      1. DON’T LET THE FACTS GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR STORY…THE REALITY SPEAKS TO A DIFFERENT STORYLINE…TRUMP JUMP STARTED THE TREATMENT OF COVID-19 AND CURTAILED ITS IMPACT ON THE NATION…AND WHILE UNFORTUNATE, TRUMP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS INVOLVED ON JANUARY 6…YOU HAVE A OPINION THAT IS NOT SHARED BY THE 75 MILLION PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR AND CONTINUE TO SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP…

      2. President Trump did not kill anyone. If you watch the correct videos regarding Jan 6th you will see that the only one weapons used were by white house police and security teams. Haven’t you wondered why the doors to the capitol were not locked while the senate was inside. And if they were who on the inside unlocked them? There is so much we the people don’t know.
        And as far as the covid you can only report what information is given to you at the time. Dr Fauci and his team didn’t even know exactly what to do at the time. He is still changing his mind.

      3. You are drinking to much koolaid. Find something else to lie about it’s time you face reality. The real problem in America is the media and false accusations by the democrates. Freedom of religion and freedom of speech in under attack by the democrates and the right to bare arms, wake up before it’s to late.

    3. Don’t want to waste good rope, don’t want to waste good wire, don’t want to waste good ammo. Can’t feed them to the sharks, that would be cruel and unusual punishment for the sharks. I know chain them behind a jet engine, get rid of them and sterilize at the same time…..

  3. Cuomo is one of those polititians that think they can do or say anything without anything happening. He got got. He is a crummy man, he needs to go.

    1. Is CUOMO protected by the Mafia. Heard that in different sections where people write. I would hope that this is not the case. CUOMO needs to answer to the families of the deceased in nursing homes. Pray to God that he will pay the penalty

      1. The mafia will have to get rid of him. There is too much bad press, to much attention, he will disappear, never to be found.

  4. What about the governor of Michigan – Whitmer – someone should investigate her as well. These wicked and ungodly people need to face criminal charges and GO TO PRISON. While they SEEM to be above the law I don’t see anything in the Bill of Rights or the Constitution that give them immunity for criminal actions.

  5. I think he should be held accountable. It seems that a lot of help was offered but his, Stupid Pride, i guess, refused it. I also believe that “ALL” Gov. officials should be held to a higher standard as they, with all the advisors we pay for to help them, shouldn`t have to Guess what is right or wrong..

  6. It’s time to take action and stop talking about.
    Also time to stop Biden/Harris, Pelosi and lots more. Do it and get it done. America is dying along with Cuomos murders.

  7. I was not Trump playing political football ( as that idiot DeRosa said ) that made the mess it was Cuomo. When he ordered infected people into the nursing homes he knew what he was doing. He was told by doctors, advisors, and others not to do this. But he went ahead and did it anyway. So quit being stupid and blaming Trump for what Cuomo did. As far as what Chris and Andrew did on CNN was nothing more than a deflection campaign, to blame Trump, and I guess it must have worked to some degree as the idiot DeRosa believed it.

  8. I agree with all of these post about Biden and Cuomo but especially Biden he is trying to turn America into a communist Country we can not let this happen we are a free Country and we want too stay that way as for Cuomo he should definitely be held accountable

  9. Have you idiots forgotten that New York is Democrat? Have you forgotten that the USA Justice Department is Democrat? Cuomo could have beheaded 50 people on videotape and he still would be found innocent.

  10. That statement is ridiculous! It would be like a murder suspect saying “I hid the gun I used to kill those people because I was afraid that you might use it against me in an investigation!” “But hey, I am really sorry. Not that I killed those people, but that I hid the gun from you.” I mean have we heard one word of apology from Cuomo for sending all those Covid positive patients back into the nursing homes? Especially when they knew how contagious it was? I know I haven’t seen or heard anything. Politicians are so afraid of apologies because it sometimes sounds like a confession. Which it does. But, I think apologies go a long way; not a substitute for punishment, but it begins the healing process for victims families.

    1. Why would Cuomo apologize for something that he is not sorry for, I mean let’s be real here, he is a Democrat. Democrats don’t mind in the least if someone dies. Just ask Pelosi, according to her the pope could die as long as she could blame it on Trump.

  11. Cuomo, Wicked Witch OF MI GRETCHEN, Newsome, and other WEST COAST DEMWITTS need to be THROWN OUT OF OFFICE for GROSS INCOMPETENCE!

    1. Gross incompetence’s implies that someone actually cared? Which implies that they had something to care with, I think you know where this is going……………..

  12. I agree nothing will come of it – after all, the Fake Bureau of Insurrection (FBI) is conducting the supposed investigation! They may find him guilty at some point, depending on if the outrage continues or fades away, but this will be slow walked and he will at best get “censured” or “probation”.
    But his political career is OVER. We the people might not be able to force the powers that be to take action against him, but what he has done is so reprehensible, I can’t imagine virtually anyone – except his brother Chris – voting for him!
    Of course, he has dominion voting machines, so I guess its possible! But I think even the dims know he’s to radioactive to touch! We’ll see!

    1. I don’t think that Chris would vote for him, too much bad press. As for being radioactive??? look who is in the dark house???? The only votes he got were from Dominion, Smartmatic, and Jill.

  13. Both of the Cuomos belong behind bars. Chris for lying every time he opened his mouth about the Trump administration. But they are libs and you know they will skate just like Comey, Strock, Pelousy, Schiff, Schumer, Nadler, Harris, Biden, Waters and cortes

  14. President Trump was RIGHT all along . He said chink sniffing Cuomo was lying about all the nursing home deaths . Trump also questioned why last summer , one wevo Cuomo wasn’t using the medical military ship and all the tents Trump sent Cuomo to use . Instead Cuomo just pushed everyone into nursing homes . Dirtbag Cuomo should be sitting in jail by now !!

  15. Legal experts warn Andrew Cuomo could face criminal charges for nursing home scandal, good he need to go to jail for murder.
    He’s a mob member, and a crook. Dump him into his orange suit put him behind bars, but don’t forget his idiot of a brother on CNN and as extra Don Lemon on CNN moron plus.

  16. It’s like this patience has been exhausted, we now demand accountability and the rats better start pointing fingerers or go down with the ship!!!

  17. I’m sure that Cuomo has kissed enough butts in his lifetime to find a way out of this. But when he eventually receives his “reward” from his Maker, he will wonder why it’s so darn HOT where he is! Burn in hell, you scumbag!

  18. Cuomo should be the first to be prosecuted for his blanton wrong doings. There’s bin no ACCOUNTABILITY with anyone of the DEMOCRATICS, they just keep breaking the law and getting away with it ITS TIme TO set an example maybe that will get the crimals ball rolling. There’s BEEN no ACCOUNTABILITY for such a long time ,that just break the law constantly right in front of GOD , everyone thinking I can get away with it and they do IT’S TIIIIIIIME!!!!!!!!!

  19. There is a day coming that will have everyone on their knee begging for Jesus to save them, but that will not happen. The time is coming and it is not very far away.

  20. If Cuomo is charged, the courts will give him a slap on the wrist, then Biden will pardon him. That’s how the Dems work.
    They’re notorious in protecting their own, not justice
    Just look at Slick Willie and Hilary.

    1. I always wondered if Wee Willy knew about the 145,000,000 that Hilary got from Putin??? Did he ever wonder why Putin would give his old hag that much money. While he was running around making out with Epstein’s little girls.

  21. Cuomo should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as an example to other Dem politicians that the law applies to the left & the right. Then let the family members of all those who died due to covid sue Cuomo in civil court!

  22. Could, Might, Possible are some WORDS that have brought US to this point. I don’t think I will let myself be “baited” by further conjecture-crap (over 7/8 of my “Conservative” e-mails).

  23. Democrat Secretaries of State and partisan judges illegally changed election law????
    I wish to make a correction, everyone keeps saying the democrats changed the election laws. Well! I for one disagree, they did not change the election laws. we need to call things as they are, they could not change the laws because that is given to the state legislatures by the constitution, so the only way they could change the law was for them to break the laws. Now for those that don’t understand what this means, is that These people committed a criminal act, by circumventing the legislature. This means that these people must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And yes I mean thr judges too, they should have known better, but they think that they wont be held accountable.

  24. The main part of the Supreme Court’s job is OVERSIGHT, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether or not there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this, then the court is not doing the due diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its job, then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government period, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then we the people have the right and the power to change or remove the government. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what the most important part of its job is. OVERSIGHT.

    Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its due diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule. and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

    Just like they did with the Hunter Biden scandal, the fake news and the media, are covering up what states are doing to hide the evidence. It is not only in the so-called battle ground states. The governors and judges, and election officials in these states, are violating the law and the constitution of the United States, by making laws illegally, and suppressing the evidence, by refusing to allow ballots, and machines to be investigated. As much as I hate to say this the Supreme Court is condoning this behavior, by not enforcing the constitution. This is their job, to protect the constitution by enforcing it. The Supreme Courts job of oversight does not end because a case is not filed in a lower court. There is nothing in the constitution that says the Supreme Court it’s self cannot call on the DOJ or Superior Court to take action on such matters, and for it not to do so is negligence.
    As I have said before and will repeat.

    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule.

    The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow.

    WE DON’T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT WE HAVE.
    ——————————————————————————————————————————–
    U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.

    Some states have gotten the idea that they can just change laws because they want to. However that is not the case, when a state becomes a state they sign on to the constitution and the bill of rights, and all of the laws contained with in the constitution. These are the over riding laws of the land, and apply to all states, and can not be just dismissed out of hand by any state governor, state legislature, or any state official, or local officials. It does not work that way. The constitution and the bill of rights can not be changed by any government body be it federal state or local. Changes to the constitution and the bill of rights can only be made by we the people. Not with E.O. or legislation by any governing body, or any whim of someone on the supreme court. This is to keep government from usurping the power of the people.

    The supreme Court is “appointed” to oversee the implementation of the constitution, and the protection of the constitution, by enforcing the constitution.
    Lately it would seem that the Supreme Court is neglecting its role of oversight, and enforcement. Which means it is not protecting the constitution.

    The Supreme Court is being negligent in its duty of oversight, of a number of states that have violated the constitution, by letting officials make laws illegally, instead of the legislatures in those states. This falls squarely in the scope of the Supreme Court. Whether or not any complaint has been filed in any other court or the Supreme Court Directly. This is the job of the Supreme Court in its roll of oversight, in the protection of the constitution. I am sorely disappointed by the Supreme Courts actions or lack there of, to do what is necessary to protect the constitution and thereby the country and the people. Trump thought he appointed three conservatives to the Supreme Court, I think he guessed wrong. I think that he appointed three Rhinos.
