Friday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked by a reporter “A number of influential New York lawmakers, including Representatives Nadler and Ocasio-Cortez, have now called for the resignation of Governor Cuomo in the light of new allegations of harassment, including one that was referred to law enforcement. My first question is simply this: Does the president believe the governor should resign?”
Psaki replied “the President believes that every woman who’s come forward, there have now been six, I believe, who have come forward…deserves to have her voice heard, should be treated with respect, and should be able to tell her story. There also is an independent investigation that is ongoing, of course, in the state, with subpoena power overseen by the attorney general, and he certainly supports that moving forward.”
“We, of course, have watched the news of a number of lawmakers call for that, but I don’t have any additional announcements from here,” she added.
