Former Empire State Governor Andrew Cuomo has denied rumors of a potential indictment, insisting that any allegations against him are “all politics”.
In a press conference on Tuesday, the former governor spoke of the conjecture surrounding his potential indictment, saying that the rumors are baseless and politically motivated.
“Any suggestion of me being indicted is completely unfounded and politically driven,” Cuomo said.
The former governor has been the subject of several investigations since leaving office earlier this year. He has been accused of sexual harassment, misusing state resources, and questionable nursing home policies. He has denied any wrongdoing.
Cuomo also addressed the ongoing investigation into his administration's handling of COVID-19 in nursing homes, saying that the investigation is “not about me.”
“This is about nursing homes and the health care system in the state of New York,” Cuomo said. “It's about making sure we learn the lessons so that we don't make the same mistakes twice.”
The former governor also took the opportunity to criticize the current administration, saying that “there is a lot to criticize” in the current state of the Empire State.
“Politics is a full contact sport, and I'm in the arena,” Cuomo said.
He went on to say that he plans to continue speaking out about the issues he believes are important, and that he will continue to fight for the people of New York.
“Everything I do is to make sure the people of this state have a future that is better than their past,” Cuomo said.
Despite the ongoing investigations, Andrew Cuomo has maintained his innocence and insists that any suggestion of a potential indictment is nothing more than politics. He has vowed to continue to fight for the people of New York, and to speak out on the issues he believes are important.
