Two members of the New York State Assembly Judiciary Committee told CNN that the committee’s lawyers are looking into whether or not they can impeach Gov. Andrew Cuomo now that he has announced his resignation. They plan to move forward with their planned meeting this Monday to discuss the next steps, the two members said.
Both members are adamant the plan is to deliver reports on the four scandals surrounding the governor that the Assembly tasked them with handling.
The Judiciary Committee, both assembly members say, has already been investigating four areas: the sexual harassment allegations, deaths in nursing homes from Covid-19, usurping state resources for personal gain, and allegations of a cover-up over damaged bridge bolts on the Mario Cuomo Bridge.
