New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sent patients diagnosed with Covid from hospitals into nursing homes, containing the most vulnerable population, in late March 2020 supposedly to free up beds in hospitals for Covid positive patients. The bed shortage never happened, but now it is learned that the number of confirmed and presumed- positive Covid-19 deaths in nursing home was 13,000 people. Last week, Melissa DeRosa, the secretary to Governor Cuomo, was recorded on a leaked audio apologizing to Democrat lawmakers for intentionally withholding the state’s Covid nursing home death toll from them because Cuomo was concerned that this fact could “be used against us.” Amid calls for Cuomo’s resignation and prosecution, there is a bipartisan effort to have his Covid emergency powers stripped. -GEG

The stunning admission by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide that the administration withheld the state’s nursing home death toll out of fear that the damning numbers would “be used against us” by the feds has sparked bipartisan calls for a thorough probe — and prosecution of the governor.

“Governor Cuomo, the Secretary to the Governor, and his senior team must be prosecuted immediately – both by the Attorney General of New York State and the U.S. Department of Justice,” US Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) wrote in a statement.

“This bombshell admission of a coverup and the remarks by the Secretary to the Governor indicating intent to obstruct any federal investigation is a stunning and criminal abuse of power,” Stefanik continued.

“I have said from the beginning that this is more than a nursing home scandal, this is a massive corruption and coverup scandal at the highest level of New York State Government implicating the Governor, the Secretary to the Governor, the New York State Health Commissioner and the Governor’s staff,” she wrote.

“The families who lost loved ones, New Yorkers, and all Americans deserve accountability from the U.S. Department of Justice that will be independent and not swayed by the desperate political pressure from Governor Cuomo.”

Colorado Governor Pays Children to Get Tested for Covid and Encourages People to Lie to their Families about Getting Vaxxed

Governor Polis encouraged kids and spouses to lie about taking a Covid vaccine: “A spouse, a parent you live with who doesn’t want to get it, is against it… you can still privately get that vaccine without your partner knowing if that’s what keeps the harmony in the family and you are protecting yourself.”

Just watching this guy, it`s obvious he was lying and trying to find answers to deflect blame from himself!! He made a total fool of himself when HE was the one who put Covid patients in nursing homes and then blames staff for bringing Covid into these nursing homes!! Since there were no bed shortages it makes one wonder just what was his motive for doing what he did!
