BREAKING: Rep. Zeldin accuses Cuomo of cover-up, announces NY GOP calling on DOJ to open Investigation

Moments ago Rep. Lee Zeldin tweeted “NY GOP Congressional delegation is calling on @TheJusticeDept to open Obstruction of Justice investigation into Cuomo/his admin.”

He added “they covered-up the true consequences of his nursing home policy & now it’s being reported they withheld info to block a DOJ investigation!”

Thursday evening, Rep. Stefanik, one of the signers of the letter,  tweeted a statement following a bombshell NY post report alleging top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa, told leading state Democratic lawmakers that the administration had withheld data on COVID-19 deaths at nursing homes to avoid federal scrutiny.

Stefanik writes “Governor Cuomo, the secretary to the governor, and his senior team must be prosecuted immediately – both by the attorney general of New York state and the U.S. Department of Justice.”

She adds “this bombshell admission of a cover-up and the remarks by the secretary to the governor indicating intent to obstruct any federal investigation is a stunning and criminal abuse of power.”
