The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office dropped its investigation into former Governor Andrew Cuomo for instructing nursing homes to take in people who were Covid-positive or were suspected of having Covid during the early days of the pandemic. An estimated 15,000 people or more died after exposure to people who were sick and had respiratory illnesses. New York state Attorney General Letitia James’ office showed that the state’s Department of Health undercounted coronavirus nursing home deaths by as much as 50 percent.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is closing its investigation into disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his role in the state’s nursing home deaths resulting from policies he implemented early on in the coronavirus pandemic, and the governor will not be charged.

Elkan Abramowitz, a former federal prosecutor hired to represent Cuomo while he was still in office, announced the news in a statement released Monday.

“I was contacted today by the head of the Elder Care Unit from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office who informed me they have closed its investigation involving the Executive Chamber and nursing homes,” Abramowitz said. “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 probe into the former governor was opened following a report last year from New York state Attorney General Letitia James’ office showing that the state’s Department of Health undercounted coronavirus nursing home deaths by as much as 50 percent.

Cuomo had instructed nursing homes to take in people who were COVID-positive or were suspected of having a case of the virus during the early days of the pandemic. The governor came under scrutiny for this move after it was learned that thousands of elderly patients became caught the virus.

“As the pandemic and our investigations continue, it is imperative that we understand why the residents of nursing homes in New York unnecessarily suffered at such an alarming rate,” James said in a statement at the time. “While we cannot bring back the individuals we lost to this crisis, this report seeks to offer transparency that the public deserves and to spur increased action to protect our most vulnerable residents.”

Andrew Cuomo was executed some months ago at GITMO for the thousands of deaths in nursing homes and other horrific deaths.

Nobody will ever convince me that Cuomo didn’t know he was condemning those nursing home residents to an early demise when he forced those homes to take in Covid patients. That creep deserves the gallows.

Andrew Cuomo is the most prolific mass murderer in U.S. history, as far as the data and I are concerned.
