Pelosi won’t call on Cuomo to resign, says he should decide for himself

A widening gulf is emerging within the Democrat Party between those who are demanding the resignation of embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) over sexual misconduct claims, and those who are taking a wait-and-see attitude, and the names of some in the latter group are somewhat surprising.

As Fox News reports, during a Sunday appearance on ABC’s This Week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just(D-CA) declined to call on Cuomo to step down amid mounting pressure among Democrats at the local, state, and federal levels, suggesting that he needs to do some soul searching instead.

According to a partial transcript of the interview provided by Breitbart, when asked directly by host George Stephanopoulos whether Cuomo should resign, Pelosi attempted to deflect by declaring her own hostility toward the sort of conduct alleged by the governor’s accusers:

I said there’s zero tolerance for sexual harassment, and we have taken measures in the House of Representatives, very strong measures in the House under the leadership of Congresswoman Jackie Speier of California.

What I said at the time that these revelations came forward, I said what these women have said must be treated with respect. They are credible and serious charges, and then I called for an investigation.

Stephanopoulous pressed the speaker on whether Cuomo is capable of effective leadership in light of the claims against him, yet Pelosi persisted in her obfuscation, replying:

No tolerance. No tolerance, and this is a subject very near and dear to my heart. There is no tolerance for sexual harassment. I’ll let the world know that.

Asked point-blank whether she was calling for Cuomo’s resignation, Pelosi demurred, stating:

I think we should see the results, but he may decide, and hopefully this result will be soon, and what I’m saying is the governor should look inside his heart. He loves New York, to see if he can govern effectively. That could be one of the considerations he has.

According to NBC News, after having remained silent on the controversy in recent weeks, President Joe Biden also broke his silence on the topic on Sunday, taking a stance similar to Pelosi’s by saying, “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.”

Unfortunately for Cuomo, the reluctance of Biden and Pelosi to demand his departure is not shared by an expanding list of lawmakers ranging from members of New York’s own congressional delegation, a host of state legislators, and prominent officials in New York City government.

Just this Friday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) added their names to those seeking Cuomo’s ouster, a roster that also includes Democrat Reps. Jerry Nadler, Carolyn Maloney, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Kathleen Rice, according to the New York Post.

Despite Cuomo’s defiant refusal to willingly leave office, the recent announcement by the New York State Assembly of an impeachment probe against him, the specter of criminal liability resulting from alleged misdeeds, and the rapid evaporation of support from members of his own party may ultimately take the decision out of the governor’s hands.

    1. it seems that the SEASON for FRUITCAKES is upon us from the WH to the Pelosi Toilet to the SEWERS that are NY, Cal. Ill, Portland. Seattle, NJ….. more NUTS there than in a ftuitcake factory

    2. LRM; That’s Why Term limits are needed some think that they are GODS. If the President get 4 yes why does some. Stay in their post for 20yrs until they R 80yrs old.

      1. you are 100% right about this. People get very comfortable in their job, and then do nothing except sit around and collect a paycheck. Plus all the other goodies that come around

    3. How true and how appropriate that Cuomo should be punished for his “Clintonisms”. Hopefully he won’t get away with it like Willie Boy got away with his shenanigans when he was “El Prezidente”, but we must remember he had his “enforcer” to step in and dissuade the accusers.

    4. What a HyPOCRITE WITCH! Didnt they insist to destroy Justice Kvaanaugh? Now, Cuomo is differen? Yes, hes different because this cat is guilty as hell, besides killing 15 thousand in nursing homes.
      murderer.

    5. WHAT ABOUT JUDGE KAVANAUGH with NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE!
      Pelosi is a WITCH and she and Biden are both losing it to Alzheimer!!!
      Pelosi! The seven women are LYING and Fredo’s Older Brother is the
      ONLY HONEST ONE!
      AMERICA WAKE UP!!!!

  1. What do you expect from a liar, cheat and thoroughly despicable person such as Pelosi?

    Surely not fairness, justice and a never ending thirst for truth and transparency?

  2. What to does this CUOMO think, he’s a mobster, a cheat, lier and thinks he can touch every woman he wants. No he can’t get out of office, low life.

  3. Soul searching to bad Pelosi doesn t have a soul. She s one to tell some else that. She s to chicken to tell him to get out . Maybe she loves men like this. Crazy Joe,Cuomo Maybe they turn her on. SICK PELOSI she just like them ,low life Scrum people.

  4. Kim Jung Un’s SISTER TAKES HARDLINE STANCE AGAINST BIDEN ADMINISTRATION. KIM Jung Un’s sister is twice a bad as the leader of North Korea. She will take charge and carry out the threat as Biden is weak and very sick.

  5. You can count on them for the double standard! Not to long ago, they were ready to lynch a couple of Republicans.

  6. 400 Bad Request

    Request Header Or Cookie Too Large
    nginx/1.17.8……..big tech big money big sick jerks games.

  7. Donate to Judical Watch Tom Fitton and Project Veritas James O’Keef , they actually get the job done.

  8. You are pretty damn quick to call out any republican to resign for a lot less, like spitting on the sidewalk or something.
    B*itch

  9. THIS IS A VERY STRONG VIEW OF OUR SYSTEM.when a senile disabled president gets installed by ONE PARTY without a fair vote by the people , THAT IS A VERY GOOD DEFINING STATEMENT FOR COMMUNIST ELECTIONS. the democrats have corrupted the voting system for the last five elections in one way or the other. anything to screw-up the vote.. or the clearing of the candidates. from the lack of background information on their nominee to deliberate hiding of information. AND THE MEDIA HAS HELPED TO DO THIS 100%. BYDENS MENTAL STATE SHOULD HAVE DISQUALIFIED HIM.Harris’s background should have disqualified her, this was all covered up by the media..either by outrite lies or by non-coverage..SMOKE AND MIRRORS is not the way to elect a legal honest president..

  10. Pelosi , if we change Cuomo,s name to trump, you would say hang him. But because its Cuomo you dont say anything. Just shows again what a low life you are .

  11. Don’t over shadow the Nursing Home Scandal
    Not only would the Nursing Home Scandal remove Cuomo from office it should put him in Prison also.
    – prison /’priz-n/ n: a place or state of confinement esp. for criminals

  12. You know, I thought about a wall of shame like project Veritas has, but that was his idea so I can’t steal it. But then I thought I would have to put a picture of Schumer on our house wall. That just dumped the entire idea in the garbage for me. A picture of SCHUMER…….NO, FORGET IT, SCRAP IT, THE WALL IN OUR HOUSE NO , NO CHANCE IN HELL.WHAT CHICKEN COOP WAS SCHUMER HATCHED IN ANYWAY?

  13. IT’s TIME TO DITCH THE WITCH, NANCY PELOSI!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

  14. When this hag and all the other morons get rid
    of the filibuster this Country will be finished for
    good.
    It will be ran by the social/communist faction in
    the name of China.Iran,Russia,Cuba,N.Korea and
    all the other Countries that Kerry and Biden are
    offering USA to forsale at the expence of Freedom.
    As a Vietnam Vet that served the Once incedable
    American flag it sickins me to see what this place
    of hope has become..”God Help This Country”
