Families of NY nursing home victims slam Manhattan DA for dropping Cuomo probe: 'Shady and fishy'

What I would say to the new D.A. is start out with why was the strategy of the Cuomo administration to send positive patients to nursing homes as the only strategy rather than the absolute last?” Peter Arbeeny told狐 & 友達” 水曜日に. He also asked why families of those who died were not interviewed as part of the investigation.

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean, who lost her in-laws in a nursing home that was impacted by New York’s order to open them to COVID-positive patients, thinks there was a deal made before the governor decided to resign.

I think this was planned in advance. He was going to be impeached. And I think lawmakers got together and said listen if you step down now, we will drop the charges and you could run again. I believe this was all planned out.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is closing its investigation into former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of nursing home COVID-19(新型コロナウイルス感染症 deaths without bringing charges against Cuomo, according to the former governor’s attorney.

“本日、マンハッタン地方検事局の高齢者介護ユニットの責任者から連絡があり、エグゼクティブチャンバーとナーシングホームに関する調査を終了したとの連絡がありました。,” Elkan Abramowitz, a former federal prosecutor who had been hired to represent Cuomo, 月曜日に言った. “I was told that after a thorough investigation — as we have said all along — there was no evidence to suggest that any laws were broken.

The investigation was opened after a report last year by ニューヨーク Attorney General Letitia James revealed that the state’s Department of Health underreported COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes by as much as 50%.

Cuomo had directed nursing homes to accept patients who tested positive for or were suspected of having COVID-19 early in his pandemic response, a move that became controversial after thousands of elderly patients became infected with the virus.


New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim, 民主党, said the whole thing just sounds veryshady and fishy,” pointing to Cuomo’s friendly ties to the outgoing district attorney, サイラスヴァンス, who was replaced by Alvin Bragg on Jan. 1.

I just hope that the federal government still has their ongoing investigation. And the new governor, along with the state attorney general, would step up and finally deliver justice and accountability for our families,” said Kim, who lost his uncle in a nursing home in 2020.
