Chuck Schumer Doubles Down on Call for Andrew Cuomo to Resign

| March 16, 2021


Governor Andrew Cuomo

Both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has called for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign, something he insisted earlier had no intention of doing.

“Confronting and overcoming the Covid crisis requires sure and steady leadership. We commend the brave actions of the individuals who have come forward with serious allegations of abuse and misconduct. Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York. Governor Cuomo should resign.”

For his part, Cuomo blasted politicians for putting “opinions ahead of facts” and said he’ll continue running New York until a pair of inquiries into allegations of sexual harassment are completed.

This all occurred Friday. Today Schumner amped it up.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday once again called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign as the governor faces duelling scandals over his handling of data on nursing home deaths and allegations of sexual harassment brought forth by multiple women, including former staff members.

Pressed by ?@mkraju?, ?@SenSchumer? makes it clear he believes the scandals around Gov Andrew Cuomo are a distraction that makes it difficult for Cuomo to govern.
“He’s lost the confidence of his governing partners & many New Yorkers and he should step down.”

Schumer joins congressional Democrats’ call for Cuomo to resign

By Veronica Stracqualursi, Gregory Krieg and Annie Grayer

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday afternoon joined a majority of New York congressional Democrats, including Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, in calling for Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign in the wake of sexual harassment allegations and his handling of Covid-19 deaths at state nursing homes.

The announcements add additional pressure not only on Cuomo — who has vigorously resisted calls for his resignation and brushed them off as political maneuvers by his rivals — but on the Biden White House, which has so far declined to call for the three-term Democratic heavyweight to step down, instead pointing to an ongoing investigation by the state’s attorney general into the harassment allegations. An aide told CNN the White House had no new comment on the matter early Friday evening.

Interesting times. Read the entire article here: CNN

    ” An aide told CNN the White House had no new comment on the matter early Friday evening.”.. Of course it doesn’t, because if they did, they might have to comment on Bidens pick for assistant HHS director Rachel Levine, who did almost exactly the same thing, in addition to pulling his mother out of one of those nursing homes prior to the order taking effect.. seems such orders were pretty common in demonrat run states..

    Somebody spray that fucker with some CLP.
    “COME ON PENDULUM!!!!! WHHOOOO HOOOOOO !!!!!”

  6. Green Thumb says:

    Schumer will say and do anything to avoid competition.

    At least is more consistent than Harris.

  7. MarineDad61 says:

    This is funny stuff.
    Air Force K9 training in the Middle East.
    With Conan O’Brien.

    Cuomo should be put in the fat suit.
    Then Schumer.

    Cuomo ain’t a Clinton, I’m a-gonna sit back and enjoy this show, I wonder which D-rat crony they have waiting to take Cuomo’s place once they cannibalize him?

    This take down of Cuomo the Luv Guv is a KamalaToe plan. He was a likely competitor for her in 2024. The 0bama Gang way is to take out rivals early on, like he did with Jack Ryan in his Senate race.

    But Heels Up can’t have her prints on the knife, so now Cucky Schemer is one of the shills calling for the Guv’s resignation.

      If Cuomo is removed over “sexual harassment” , he will -not- be investigated or sanctioned for his epic botch of handling ChiComCoof, to the tune of tens of thousands of needless Senior deaths and tens of thousands of bogus counts, and all the myriad destruction wreaked upon New Yorkers to no useful result.

      Florida kinda proves it was mostly bullshit. Florida should be a wasteland by now, and it isn’t.

      So they need to get that off the minds of the Proles. Thus they stop suppressing his other victims and instead “support” and “believe” them. Eventually he either cuts a deal or gets impeached. Either way, it won’t be for ChiComCoof bullshitting.

      “He has already been removed/resigned/cancelled. Time to move on.”

      Thus the others, who also botched and lied, get to consolidate their gains, and not face scrutiny for their own epic fails.

      Any other such investigations will also be similarly displaced by “sexual harassment”, ” bribery”, or some other mundane wrongdoing.

      And the lesson to all the rest is “Stick with the Party Leaders, or you too will have your laundry dragged forth.”

      • Mason says:

        This sexual harassment is totally to distract from the real scandal of killing those in nursing homes (and not it’s come to light, group homes). He’s being sacrificed to distract from the other governors (all Democrats curiously) who gave the same idiotic order. Most notably, Whitmer in Michigan, who is a rising star for the Democrats regardless (or perhaps because) of all the ways she violates the Constitution and common sense.

        • Hack Stone says:

          You are partially correct. This unwarranted attack against the Honorable Governor Cuomo is to distract attention from the success of the Biden Administration, such as the challenge, not a crisis, on the border, gasoline prices going up 70 cents a gallon in the last sixty days, and the ever increasing unemployment numbers. Joe Biden is doing a heck of a job.

  10. 26Limabeans says:

    Cuomo is a vindictive sort. He will surely spill some dirt on
    his way out the door and Schumer has carefully weighed his
    exposure to such risk. Cuomo’s got nothin on Chuck so he will
    have to move further down the food chain to bite back.

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      Just like how Das Hildebeast screeched that she would take at least half of DC with her if she even got indicted, I’m sure that Cuomo will throw as much dirt as he can!

  11. OWB says:

    Weird.

    He must be a greater threat than any of us thought possible.

  12. The Other Whitey says:

    The left is turning on Don Cuomo. Even the New York Slimes! There must be some really damning stuff waiting to see the light of day for them to suddenly stop pretending that he’s a hero.

  13. Mason says:

    He should have ran for president when he had his chance. Could have swept it right out from under Ol’ Joe. Then this would all be a vast far-right conspiracy.

    At least he’s got that Emmy Award to fall back on.
