Fresh update on "andrew cuomo" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"So, just when you thought that Thanksgiving weekend would be a slow news cycle. And you're like, okay, maybe we'll deal with a little palace intrigue, maybe a little bit. How long is Joe Biden going to be president? From halfway around the world, a new breaking development on the scene of endless lockdowns, mandatory vaccinations in the pandemic. Came onto the scene. The media went from tryptophan induced coma not knowing what to do post Thanksgiving to we're back at war and we need to shut everything down. I'm of course talking about the new, the improved omnikron virus, otherwise known as the Omni Kron variant. Oh by the way, they skipped over the G variant. I wonder why. And so now the media is immediately going all in. Fauci of course is leading the charge. Cut three. Fauci says, look, this is a clarion call. If you're not vaccinated, get vaccinated on a second. Let's just ask a couple very obvious questions. Has the virus intensified? Or weakened since we have embarked on a mass vaccination campaign? It's very simple question. Has the booster helped with this or hurt with us? Is a majority of deaths who's dying at a higher rate. The vaccinated are the unvaccinated in the United Kingdom. Play cut three. This is a clarion call as far as I'm concerned of saying, let's put aside all of these differences that we have and say, if you're not vaccinated, get vaccinated if you're fully vaccinated, get boosted and get the children vaccinated also. We now have time. Thank goodness that the South Africans were a really extraordinarily good in what they did. They were completely transparent right from the beginning. Now, Joe Biden has now suspended all travel from South Africa, proving he's a bitter racist. Now, of course, Joe Biden attacked Donald Trump for suspending travel from China and other countries and saying we're never going to have to do that. We're going to get this pandemic under control. Now he has suspended travel from South Africa. Foushee has continued by saying, look, this is never going away. Let's go to cut four Fauci says everything is on the table. When asked about vaccine mandates for domestic air travel in the United States, play cut four. Should we have a vaccine mandate for domestic travel air travel? Check. I'm not gonna make any pronouncements about what we should have about vaccine mandates for travel. We know that we evaluate these things literally in real time all the time. You know, everything is discussed in everything is on the table. Everything is on the table. Now, the state of New York has now declared a state of emergency. The governor of New York, Kathy hoku has said that she is going to pause elective surgeries amid ongoing variant concerns, that another lockdown might be coming soon to the state of New York. So if you're listening right now on WABC on the dial another lockdown might become in very soon. For a virus that we already know who it impacts the most. We've suppressed all conversation around treatments Ivermectin hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin aspirin, vitamin D supplements and deficiencies. No, but now the new variant from South Africa, we're going to lock down the entire country. Governor hoku, who wants to be governor again, she's only governor because Andrew Cuomo resigned. She says, we've taken extraordinary action to prevent the spread of the virus and to combat this pandemic however we're seeing warning signs of spikes this upcoming winter. And while the omnicon variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it's coming. Fear mongering. Now what do we really dealing with here? Well, this is from Reuters. Listen to the South African doctor saying, look, the mildness of the symptoms, there's no reason to panic, and we don't see severely ill patients. Instead, what we are experiencing is the hype is the exaggeration created intentionally for a response that will push vaccines and push lockdowns, play cut one looking at the mildness of the symptoms that we are seeing. Currently there is no reason for panicking as we don't see severely ill patients. But the hype that's been created currently out there in the media and worldwide. Doesn't correlate with the clinical picture. Well if it doesn't correlate with the clinical picture, why is it that the entire media almost overnight? Has now put themselves back into an active posture to want to lock down the country, reinstitute mask mandates, and vaccine mandates. There's an old Latin phrase.

"Right. How about more good news for Republicans? Bad news for the Democrats, which, frankly, I hate to say it, hate to be this partisan. Bad news for the Democrats means good news for America. Here's some more bad news. The disgraced ex governor of New York Andrew Cuomo is going to be arrested. They charged him yesterday with groping a former aide in the executive mansion. It's a crime that could send him to jail. He's going to be as I understand it, booked processed, I guess we're going to see an Andrew Cuomo mugshot, huh? Will there be a perp walk? You know, New York loves its perp walks. They like taking people and marching them in front of a parade of photographers with their hands handcuffed behind their back.

Biden vs. Kavanaugh Sex Allegations Show Democrats' Jaw-Dropping Hypocrisy
"Moore back during the brett cavanaugh. Hearings that was three years ago. It's amazing to think three years ago. Brett cavenaugh stood in front of the united states senate to be confirmed to the united states. Supreme court you remember how the media covered brett cavenaugh as an attempted rapist. You see revolutionary movements like rich versus poor poor versus rich women against men and black versus white are helpful as a means to an end to get political power. The brett cavenaugh example was a great example of how they were trying to use a moment of a movement to try to get political power but if actually ever threatened one of their own they might send andrew cuomo out to pasture but they could replace it with the democrat. They might send an al franken out to pasture but they can replace it with a democrat but if ever was sending a joe biden out to pasture which means that a republican become president. No way because power in regards to what the left values what they prioritize is much higher on the hierarchy than actually caring about believing all women play cut sixty eight and attempted rape as though yes my supreme court nominee may be. An attempted rapists is attempted. Rapes potential attempted rape attempted rape. This is charge of attempted. Attempted rape a curry that is so critical to the nomination of judge. Cavanaugh high school drunk at attempted rape and attempted rape. This is a small example of what we had to deal with three years ago. But of course. Joe biden under credible accusations of groping women who worked for him tara reid and otherwise ignore it because we need him to become president so we can control the executive branch of the government

Forcing Small Kids To Wear Masks Isn't Science, It's Child Abuse
"As a nation how far we've fallen. Where tens of millions of people if not 100 million, plus think that torturing our kids and abusing them by putting masks on their face. They can provide no actual evidence whatsoever. Have stopped this spread. None provide some anecdotal stories, little pockets of evidence that it may have stopped an infection from someone actively spewing droplets. You can provide no evidence disease or systemically effective at all. And yet, in the interest of taking it to conservatives and insulting Donald Trump supporters, you abuse your own kids. But it's it's stunning. It's really tough to see how far I watched it, and I'm sitting there and it's like day in the gym, which is even worse. And I'm watching this. I'm like this can't possibly be happening. We have people abusing their own kids. In childcare facilities. This is child abuse. Child abuse. We have people abusing kids. In order to make a political point. And you may say, Oh, they're not abusing kids in there doing it for their safety. Really? Because the people mandating this are doing it for their safety. Andrew Cuomo, No Mass. Remember that picture. Gavin Newsom. French laundry? No mask. London Breed Mayor of San Francisco. We got her coming up next. No mask. Emmy Awards last night. No mask. Uh, Hollywood people, no mask. Yeah. You can't have it both ways. Even the mass stop the spread, and everybody should be wearing them or they don't you think there are force and we should just be abusing kids with them?

"andrew cuomo" Discussed on Trumpcast
"Several questions about is this okay. Should robbie have stepped down. Is it fair that she stepped down when the president did some of these same things. And i guess the main question that it raises for me which i really don't know what exactly i think the answer is is like if we're existing in this world where were finally taking men to task for what they're doing. How do you know which men to definitely avoid. And like is it ever useful for a woman who's actually well-versed in these things to offer support and advice to a man who is accused of sexual assault or harassment and even to a man who has committed sexual assault and harassment to your first question. The is it ever okay to like trust a man. basically i mean it's still true in progressive politics. That change will not happen without the consent of white men because they do hold disproportionate power in progressive politics. Even if we just say democrats you know white. Men are disproportionately represented among democrats when you consider the makeup of democrats so yes you have to engage them in your issues however i think that where progressive organizations especially those that are trying to that are advocating on issues. That are particularly salient for women. Like sexual harassment. They've stepped in it when they have focused on the people in the politicians at the expense of the issues. So i think it's fine to say you know this legislation that andrew cuomo happen to sign is really important. I don't think it's okay to say andrew cuomo a hero of the me too movement or you know. He's an amazing feminist ally anytime. Here's someone call someone in ally. I think you know everything that they've done like when you bestow a definitive label on someone like that as many of these people have done when it comes to andrew cuomo and or other men. That's when you set yourself up to fail. And i think this also demonstrates one of the pitfalls of a grass tops movement because when you staff your organization and stock you're bored with rich powerful people..
"andrew cuomo" Discussed on Trumpcast
"Welcome back to the waves so christina andrew cuomo announced he would resign a couple of weeks ago. Let's listen to a clip of that. I do hug and kiss people casually women and men. I have done it all my life. It's hawaii been since i can remember in my mind. I've never crossed the line with anyone. But i didn't realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn. What did you make of this speech. Funny you should ask actually published a piece on sleep dot com about this very speech. You don't say this seemed like he was pulling from the greatest hits of men who've been accused of sexual harassment over the past couple of years. But most egregiously i thought was his contention that the line of appropriate behavior has been redrawn so quickly that he couldn't possibly be asked to keep up. That was sort of the original. Excuse that harvey weinstein and his lawyer brought up. When women made those public allegations that he was an old dinosaur was trying to learn new ways but it was so hard for him. I think this is particularly absurd. Coming from andrew cuomo because he has extremely publicly aligned himself with the mean to movement. The time's up organization. Feminists trying to get legislation passed to beef up accountability measures for sexual harassment. So it would be a stretch to think that any male politician especially could have not known that you know. It wasn't okay anymore and pause there to recognize that it never was but especially this man who has made such a big deal of what an ally he was to the feminist movement. He must think we're all fools. Yeah i was so struck by like in this speech and then also today i think it was. Today is tuesday that we're recording. This is his actual last day in office. Or maybe he left last night at eleven fifty nine so he gave one last speech and he's so married to the idea of himself as the good guy and himself as the good guy has taken. So many different manifestations like he was such a visible governor during the pandemic he was hosting the daily news briefings and he can't get over his own self image as exactly that and i thought that that was really present both in the speech in which he announced that he was resigning. In fact like the thing that i remember about it was that until he actually resigned. It just didn't sound at all like he was resigning. It was like a classic. I'm andrew cuomo. I'm the man kind of speech. And i just think that he has such an obvious complex about having to present hourly as the good guy and then within his workplace. It's so clear based on all the reporting that we've read the he's such an aggressive bad guy and the thing that i think is so interesting about him is that it's not even just the sexual harassment it's the like coercion and the covering up and the bullying and the like you said at the.

"Welcome to the waves. Slates podcast about gender feminism and governors. Who have to give back there. Emmys every episode. You got a new pair of women to talk about the thing. We can't get off our minds and today you've got me. Susan mathews news director of sleet and the editorial director of this podcast. That you're listening to right now. And you've got me christina ricci. I'm a senior writer at slate. And host of the sleet. Podcast outward hi christina. I'm so excited to be here thinking. Yeah under very unfortunate circumstances given the topic. We're discussing almost always unfortunate circumstances so today we're going to be talking about andrew. Cuomo who left the governor's mansion in new york this week after a month long investigation into accusations of sexual harassment from several former. Staffers that investigation yielded a report that was so damaging the even cuomo who has been weathering scandals by simply toughing them out for years and years couldn't keep doing it. I'd like to talk through. Wyatt took so long until all of a sudden it didn't for him to leave. Step down and i'd also really liked to talk about what this particular sequence of events could and should teach us about where me too is right now and lastly we're going to talk about a part of this scandal that i actually think is the most interesting and fascinating aspect of all of this. Which is the effect that cuomo's exit has had on time's up which is named pretty glitzy organization that launch soon after the metoo movement itself and is headed by many famous women one of whom had to step down in the wake of the cuomo's scandal and we're going to get into all of that in a minute so i think the reason i've been interested in this case specifically is because i think that we'll be able to unpack some of the questions that i've had for a while like is journalism still enough to take down a bad man. Should it be. And how much are women. Getting blamed for their efforts to further. Meet you even though. Men are obviously much more universally the perpetrators of sexual violence and harassment christina. Why did you wanna talk about andrew. Cuomo i feel like we've talked a lot personally about the more thorny questions around me to which is basically what happens now when accusations come up what comes next but i've also been kind of stuck in a thought spiral about this cuomo stuff Because no one is walking away from. That governor's office unscathed. And i think that is true of a lot of instances of workplace sexual harassment. It implicates everyone. Everyone who's victimized by who is left wondering did they provoke. Did they respond firmly enough to stop it. Everyone who witnesses it. There are always people in the workplace who have to decide whether they want to risk their own careers to try to. Hold the perpetrator accountable. Especially in politics. It implicates everyone who has been an ally to the perpetrator which politicians always have plenty of allies. People who have told themselves in some cases like perhaps the women who lead times up that the ends justify the means they're gonna maybe decide to align themselves with an imperfect leader because he could possibly do some good and help advance their cause. So that's why we're seeing the aftershocks of the komo investigation touch a lot of seemingly unrelated corners of progressive politics and seemingly unlikely corners. I would say yeah definitely cuomo. Like kind of proactively used feminists legislation and all kinds of things as a defense mechanism for a really long time. So i think. I think.

"For a girlfriend. He was propositioning me for sex and clearly something has to happen. Coma began his self defense machine. He put it into motion again denials. I have heard charlotte and her lawyer simply put. They heard things that i just didn't say but that wasn't enough in the end. The attorney general of new york state Who is the top prosecutor in the state. Code letitia james. She ordered an official inquiry into what had happened. My when along with that and said he would cooperate with inquiry. Anyway do nothing to stand in. Its way and that's where we are from march through to last week awaiting while the inquiry would find. I don't think that many people who are well versed in cuomo who who thought inquiry would do anything other than what it did which is to cooperate the complaints of the now eleven women because they had two extra women came forward with allegations for the inquiry less cheesy. That report came out all one hundred sixty five pages of it. What did it conclude it. Run through the accounts of the eleven women. I'm built up incredibly consistent. Persuasive narrative about komo's behavior and it contained a range of behavior for instance the events in the car which we began talking about and which state trooper why. She wasn't wearing a dress. You could just as relatively mild that very same state trooper said that he had a run the palm of his hand across his stomach from a belly button to her hip where she had a gun strapped in a way that made a feel in her was completely violated. And there were other instances of unwanted touching inappropriate comments about women's private lives and in one of the most shocking incidents. A foam executive assistant said that he had put his hand up her blouse and grabbed her breast. He walks over. Shut the door came back to me. And that's when he put his hand up my blouse and coach my breast over my bra. I exactly remember looking down seeing his hand which is a large hand thinking to myself. Oh my god this is happening. It happened so quick. He didn't say anything. When i stopped it he just pulled away and walked away so the allegations cover the gamut. They run all the way from sexual harassment through to groping and unwanted touching of intimate body parts. The investigation found that governor andrew cuomo sexually harass current and former new york state employees by engaging an unwelcome and nonconsensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of us suggestive sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women. I think is also really important to say that the report builds up this picture of a workplace culture which was talk second word used by the attorney general letitia james in which women felt. They would demeaned in various ways in which they were faithful to criticize Plane about what was happening to them. Because of possible retaliations and a culture in which further sexual harassment could flourish. And the the way that he sustained it over. So many is in such a kind of almost unassailable way surrounded by staf. -is scores of them both male and female several of him wet fame for many many years and none of them felt that they would or could do anything about it and is so by the time you finish reading the report you come out thinking. Wow this is a really devastating damning account. The independent investigation has concluded that governor andrew cuomo sexually harass multiple women and in doing so violated federal and state law. How did andrew cuomo in response to this report over the past several months. You've heard a number of complaints brought against me within a few hours. working posted. Video statement of himself lasts about fourteen minutes. People may look back on as one of the truly memorable political statements of our era because it was so strange. I do on occasion. Say chow bella. I mean on one level. It was incredibly predictable. He just rolled out the playbook of the powerful mine with his back against the wall. And we've had it. I'm teen times. It's denial. I want you to know directly from me that i never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. It's tempting to reinterpret other complaints raised against me questions that have sought to unfairly characterize and weaponize everyday interactions that i've had with any number of new yorkers it was one of those stream lee partial apologies. I now understand that there are generational or cultural perspectives. That frankly i hadn't fully appreciated. I even went on to say that he was ordering sexual harassment training for his staff including himself and i brought in an expert to design a new sexual harassment policy and procedures and to train. The whole team myself included. I accept responsibility and we are making changes and he said it in such a way as to imply that maybe his stuff was misinterpreting pangs on and guilty of sexual harassment and not himself. The new york times published the front page. Picture of me touching a woman's face at a wedding and then kissing her on the cheek and then he he showed us this montage. Photographs froth himself and other people hugging on embracing it is meant to convey warmth. Nothing more which he claimed showed that it was just normal just the way he did.

Do you remember when when that first happened that you got to know him a little bit and an assessed him funny. I you know you know the cuomo name is basically what one hundred percent recognition in state. I'm trying to figure out when i actually got to note like what he stood for it. Was you know he was just always kind of in the background. I guess and then it was. It was maybe not until twenty. Fourteen is run with zephyr. teach out who Started saying what she stood for versus what he stood for that. I i really Kinda got engaged Well actually no. That's not true at all in the in the mayor's race let me go back to you and for When i was bill blasio cuomo kind of loomed large and In those in those very early days he was not terrible to build a bomb and it was hard to remember that now but he wasn't terrible. The bill blasios and then rate it was when we started to want to have universal pre-k and to tax the rich to do so That he really became aggressively against the blasios. I felt And then when dubois who actually won that fight fight.

Put him into a rage and then everything. The blasios tried to do From that perspective. Like cuomo tried to undo. I remember even trying to get fifteen dollars minimum.

"Today. The resignation of andrew cuomo as governor of new york. I spoke with my colleague. Shaneco bacher about what convinced him to step aside who replaces him and what happens next. It's wednesday august eleventh shane. The last time we talked to you and it was very long ago was right after this very damning report came out from the office of the new york attorney general laying out very credible allegations by eleven accusers claiming that new york governor andrew cuomo sexually harassed them and in that conversation. You told us andrew cuomo would never leave office unless he was shoved out and that seemed pretty far off so what changed. Well he was shoved and i think that he was shoved faster than i or he expected to come and from all different directions. It started on sunday. He got a shove from inside his own administration and we begin with breaking news in albany. Where the governor's top aide secretary. Melissa derosa has resigned from his senior adviser. A woman named derosa who has been his right hand for years in a statement obtained by thirteen. Wham news derosa says the past. Two years have been emotionally and mentally trying. Resignation comes as governor. Cuomo faces mounting calls for him to step down. It's really hard to overstate. How important melissa's been to cuomo administration and you can see it in part by the fact that her name is littered across the attorney general's report with more than one hundred mentions of her involvement from but they called retaliation against one of the accusers to just generally serving as the epicenter of all things. Cuomo derosa has been blamed for normalizing workplace harassment and previously came under fire in february for the state's nursing home scandal and so for her to step aside was the message that he was losing support. Remain in office from inside his own chamber. And then one of the women with the most serious accusation against the governor. The woman who filed a criminal complaint against new york governor andrew cuomo has spoken publicly for the first time spoke publicly with her name attached to it brittany cammisa granted an exclusive interview to cbs this morning and the albany times union and said in detail for the first time exactly what her experience was with andrew cuomo. He groped me. He touched me not only once but twice and so you had another name and face for his accusers and she to said that he should resign. What he did to me was a crime he broke the law and then the next morning there was another resignation. There's more fallout this morning. The scandal surrounding new york governor andrew cuomo. Roberta kaplan stepped down as chairwoman of times up from. Roberta kaplan another person who was named in the report. Roberta kaplan services the chairwoman of times up the advocacy group for victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment. Resignation follows revelations that she helped advise governor. Cuomo's office in an effort to discredit at least one of his accusers. And she was in the cuomo report because the office had reached out to her at one point and consultant her on how to reply to the very first accuser of andrew. Cuomo lindsey boylan and kaplan stepped down on monday saying she couldn't keep her posting and she faced pressure from internally over the fact that she had worked with the governor during this process and so by midday on monday. You had two women who've been accused of helping andrew cuomo stepping down from their powerful positions in andrew. Cuomo himself firmly staying on as governor. And what happens next all right. Good afternoon well then on monday. Afternoon crawl hasty. The leader of the state assembly holds a news conference as i stated last week. The governor's clearly lost the confidence of the majority members of the new york. State assembly for the first time in more than one hundred years. The assemblies undertaking and impeachment investigation of a sitting governor any outlines that they are proceeding on impeachment. And even set some deadlines for the cuomo team to submit their side of evidence as well as data future hearings. And i believe that this is going to be dealt within weeks and not months and hey see gave a timeline. He said we're talking weeks not months and so that time that andrew cuomo is looking to buy it was shrinking in each day he was seeing further and further erosion of support. But more important than can even the dates to carl. Hasty talked about was something else he said about interacting with andrew cuomo i am not negotiating any deals ago said i read that in the newspaper. Not part of any discussions plan to be part of any discussions about cutting deals. He said i'm not negotiating. Any deals and for the people i've spoken to. This was an important moment inside the shrinking circle of cuomo advisors. This is a governor who always is looking to strike deals and suddenly. He's facing the possibility of impeachment and the leader of the democrats. Saying there's no deals left to be struck here. Future generations will look to us and how we conduct ourselves in this moment and then on tuesday morning. The governor's office announced that his lawyer was going to give some remarks but before she even began the video of the governor himself arriving in new york city by helicopter. It immediately began spreading questions. Of what was he gonna do. What is he going to make his own appearance in the questions of whether this was the moment he was going to.

"Development aid and for the people who live in these places that have now been taken over by the taliban how does life change for them on a day-to-day basis. Well you know that has been a big point of debate In recent years the extent to which the taliban may or may not have evolved and changed his ideology and it sort of approach to governing and coexisting with afghan society. Since two thousand one we know of course at the taliban had a very strict version of islam that imposed on afghans in the nineteen nineties where women were largely restricted from participating in public life You know music Television were largely band. But they say that they've modernized. But there's certainly are troubling indications that they are not going to be as permissive as many afghans hoped that they would be this sort of taliban two point. Oh and really you know. It's it's it's not consistent and uniform across the country but where they have gained power. We have seen indications that they're updated version of governance is not going to be as different from its previous version as many people would have hoped. Will you it at the beginning that this is a defining moment for the. Us is a legacy in afghanistan. And if things continue to go poorly. I mean what will that legacy be. Yeah i mean. I think you think about what happened in in vietnam. After the the american departure the impact on american standing in the world. You know the the idea that america stands by its allies could potentially be affected. It was a defining aspect of america's response to nine eleven and sort of american engagement with the world and foreign policy over the last twenty years if it collapses not only would that potentially pose a national security threat to the united states directly but also says something about us as a country. And there's lots of debate that occurs about how long we should do that. And you know what the opportunity cost is with our ability to tackle the challenges at home that we have updating american infrastructure and investing in priorities at home and all of that but certainly it is. I think something that a lot of people will associate with the american standing in the world if afghanistan really does fall apart that was reporter missy ryan susannah. George is the afghanistan bureau chief for the post. This story was produced by alexis. How on tuesday a u. s. peace envoy brought a warning to the taliban they said that any government in afghanistan that comes to power through force will not be recognized internationally. But there's still a big question of whether that threat will do anything to get the taliban to stop seizing new territories since schools around the country are about to reopen.

"I can help now is if i step aside. And let government get back to governing and therefore. That's what i'll do just afternoon today. Andrew cuomo announced that he is resigning as governor of new york. This is coming a week after a state investigation found that he sexually harassed eleven women from the newsroom of the washington. Post this is post reports. I'm martine powers. It's tuesday august tenth at the same time that we're hearing this major news out of new york. There's also a crisis developing in afghanistan. Us troops are basically gone and now. The taliban is regaining control of the country. Way faster than people expected foreign leaders are scrambling to figure out what they can do to stop it later in the show. We'll talk about why. This is a defining moment for america's legacy in afghanistan but first we need to talk about cuomo. This is one of the most challenging times for government in a generation. government really needs to function today. Government needs to perform and wasting energy on distractions is the last thing that state government should be doing and i cannot be the cause of that governor. Cuomo's resignation is surprising because up until recently. He had insisted that he had done nothing wrong. But a report from state. Investigators said otherwise the contained several examples of unwanted touching including cuomo allegedly groping and executive assistant while hugging her and inappropriately touching a female state trooper that he arranged to have on his security detail. The report also said that cuomo's office unlawfully retaliated against an accuser. Just to be clear. Cuomo does deny some of these allegations in my mind. I've never crossed the line with anyone. Just a few minutes. After cuomo finished his resignation speech we talked a reporter. Michael shear about what finally pushed cuomo over the edge and what this could mean for his future politically and otherwise. He's going to leave office in fourteen days. His lieutenant governor. Kathy hotel will take over and there will be a regularly scheduled election in twenty twenty two for the next governor to take office and being of twenty twenty three. What did he actually say. In this announcement he went over once again. A lot of the defenses. He has previously put forward the eleven women who've accused him of various types of harassment. Those include that he did not understand. Generational changes in what behavior was acceptable. I have slept and called people. Honey sweetheart and darling i meant it to be in endearing but women founded dated and offensive that certain behavior by him that was never meant to be sexual was misinterpreted. I kissed a woman on the cheek at a wedding. And i thought i was being nice but she felt that it was too aggressive that some of the allegations against specifically the improper touching of women who are just false denied continues to deny those but then he said that at this moment his job was to look out for the people of new york and it was in the best interest of the people of new york for him to step aside given that it seems almost certain that the new york assembly is going to move forward very quickly with impeachment articles against him. And there's a very good chance that he would be removed from office by the state senate. It'd be a protracted process but but there wasn't much hope for him surviving that well i think so. Many people are very shocked by this news. And i think part of that shock is the fact that cuomo didn't even seem to consider resignation as a possible option until recently i wasn't elected by politicians. I was elected by the people of the state of new york. I'm not going to resign. Even though the president and the state senators were all speaking out against him. So what happens like why is this resignation coming. Now after. so much protracted pressure. I think we're sort of at the last moment here. All other options had basically been exhausted. His top aide. Melissa derosa who is sort of running point on him through his response to all of these allegations for six or eight months now resigned on sunday night all of his senior advisors according to our reporting were telling him there was really no hope of surviving the scandal. At this point there are a number of public polls that showed pretty large margins of voters in the state of new york wanted him. You know thought he'd done something wrong and a majority wanted him to leave office so i think he waited as long as he. Could you know the the option he still had left was to mount legal defense in a political impeachment process in the state of new york and almost certainly that wind of succeeded. It would have been a painful process for him. It would have reared all of these accusations against him. It would have kept him in the news for probably months. And you know. I think he calculated this point that that just wasn't worth it any wonder how much of this decision goes beyond the accusations of sexual harassment. That for years. Cuomo has been known as a bully has been alienating to other politicians and i wonder if this resignation is a recognition that he doesn't have allies in his moment of need i think he had run out of allies quite a long time ago. I mean everyone. From president biden to you know the two senators from new york to majority of the congressional delegation to a majority of the state assembly to even people who he had worked closely with with in feminist circles and women survivors. Groups had all called on him to resign in in really no uncertain terms and that it started quite a while ago it. You know it is interesting that you're right. He was a bully and he used that as part of his sales pitch to the state of new york for years with some success. He said i'm a bully. But i'm a bully for you. I'm gonna fight for new york. He called himself new york. Tough there's certainly a lot of bullying behavior documented in this report by the new york. Attorney general but what really changed you know. The calculation for the political universe. Here was that the bullying behavior was overlapping with clear sexual harassment and that the victims of the bullying behavior. Were you know younger. Women sometimes executive assistance or people he just met on rope lines or more junior employees of the state of new york and that and that really changes one thing to go after a political rival as part of the political game. It's another thing to be making the people who are working closely with you. Feel as uncomfortable as he did So now that he's going to be resigning. What does that mean for him for the feature i mean are there other investigations or possible charges. That could still be facing him. Yes there is several criminal investigations that are ongoing and i don't think his resigning will end those right away. It may take some of the pressure off the prosecutors in those cases but there's a federal investigation into his handling of nursing home deaths in the state. Several state district attorneys have opened investigations into some of the specific claims. That were made in the attorney. General report there is still an investigation being conducted by the judiciary committee in the assembly. New york it's not clear what's going to happen to that now And that investigation notably went beyond just the harassment allegations. It included claims that he'd given preferential treatment to cove in nineteen tests to people including members of his family claims about the nursing homes and claims that he'd used state resources to help write a book last year during the covert nineteen pandemic So we'll have to see how that investigation goes. It is possible that the new york assembly goes forward with impeachment. That the senate convicts him in that case you know. The legislature does have the power to ban him from ever holding office again in the state of new york. Although at this point. I think it's just too early.

Yeah four discrimination for the pregnancy thing whatever so and a lot of it is just like he made them dress sexier exactly. So here's the thing i think more.

We're going to have sung tame your past that people can make into something else right. Sure especially ten years ago exactly right. You made them dress sexy. Sorry bro ten years ago.

Let's investigate this. Let's put resources behind uncovering the truth. And that's what i do. It's a twenty four seven commitment and it means that sometimes. I can't publish until i spent months or even years following every lead and checking every fact all those resources there are available to us because of new york times subscribers. If you'd like to support this kind of work you can subscribe at ny times dot com slash subscribe sushi. And you said that for andrew cuomo to ever leave office. He would need a shove from albany translate that. What exactly does that mean. We'll look joe. Biden can put incredible political pressure on andrew cuomo. But what he can't do is actually remove him from public office Andrew cuomo either has to do that himself by resigning or the state legislature in albany can do it for him through an impeachment process and in albany. The impeachment process starts in the state assembly. Just as it starts in the house in dc by entering in our last conversation we talked about the relationship between governor cuomo and state. Legislators in albany and my recollection is that it is not very good. Not very good is an understatement. There are few lawmakers with a real close relationship to andrew. Cuomo most have been at the receiving end of his bullying in vindictive behaviors. They've described it and that even when there are successes even when he signs their bill he takes credit for them and leaves them behind and so on tuesday afternoon. After this report came out the assembly got together for an emergency phone. Call to figure out what to do next in on that call. There wasn't a single lawmaker. Who voiced their support for andrew cuomo according to multiple people i talked to it just wasn't there and while he has a bad relationship overall with lawmakers he does have some pockets of support in there have been some groups of lawmakers who had said. Let's wait until we have the results of investigation who had joined the stampede calling for his resignation this spring but even those lawmakers didn't speak on his behalf on that phone call and in the hours since a number of them have issued statements. Saying it's time for him to step aside and the most important voice among these assembly. Democrats is their leader. A- lawmaker him. Carl hasty who'd been among the people giving cuomo time saying let's wait until the results of this investigation came in and then late on tuesday. He issued a statement and he didn't pass his own judgment on andrew cuomo but he said that the governor had lost the confidence of the assembly democrats and that quote he can no longer remain in office. Any promised to quickly begin the process of impeachment. So the lawmaker. Who would be in charge of an impeachment process that could result in andrew. Cuomo being removed from office is now putting out a statement saying it's time for him to leave office. Which would seem to imply a threat. Leave or you'll be impeached. And there's a lot of focus on this statement in even the adverbs. The carl hasty uses. He says that they will move expeditiously and quickly. And there's a real question of what does that mean. Are we talking days or weeks or months. And the broad sense it. The assembly will still take a few weeks at a minimum to wrap up their investigation into the allegations against cuomo so it's increasingly looking like impeachment may happen to andrew cuomo absolutely right because i guess the question at this point is what would prevent a new york state. Democratic lawmaker from voting to oust andrew cuomo their president has called for their congressional colleagues in washington have called for their leaders within the legislature. Have signaled that it should happen. So what would keep one of these lawmakers from alliston cuomo. Would it be because of his name his family's legacy would it be because of his reputation for retaliation or what you know i. I wouldn't underestimate the rare -ness of members of a party ousting a chief executive of their own party and so the idea that democrats alone would provide all of the votes to remove a democratic governor. Who by only a few months ago was overwhelmingly popular. Who still has millions of dollars in the bank to bankroll's on political future and who is shown history vindictiveness while they may not like him and they might be prepared. It doesn't make it an easy vote. Take right it's one thing to threaten it. It's another thing to actually cast that. Vote to impeach a leader of your party. it's one of the most severe votes lawmakers overtake. I'm curious shane. How these lawmakers and how cuomo are thinking about the voters. because i'm remembering our first conversation about cuomo's belief that the voters were going to be his lifeline. That regular new yorkers weren't ready for him to leave office. Do you think that these lawmakers are thinking about that and are they worried that their appetite for impeachment might not be aligned with the views of new yorkers. Wasn't it safe to say. The democratic politicians right now in new york have a greater tight for.

"It's thursday august fifth shane. The last time we talked to you back in march you told us. The story of andrew cuomo's political rise. And what started to look like the beginning potentially of his political fall. Can you briefly. Remind us of the outlines of that story. yeah andrew. Cuomo is a three term governor of new york the son of a three term governor of new york and last year he built a big national profile seen as effective and decisive during the pandemic emerge kind of as an anti-trump for the democratic party but as twenty twenty turn to twenty twenty one he started to face to twin crises. One was about nursing home. Deaths that occurred during the in new york both the number of them and whether his administration had intentionally covered up just how many people had died and the second was a growing number of accusations from women who had worked with him that he had sexually harassed them and as these women came out one by one were growing calls for investigations in a number of top democrats saying it was time for him to resign because of them right at the time. Shane you told us that governor cuomo was banking on the support of new york's voters not lawmakers and that he believed to quote you that voters weren't ready to say goodbye to him and that they believed in him and what he gotten done as governor so his wager was that if he could hold onto the support of regular new yorkers he could hold onto his governorship he bought himself time so in the spring and independent investigation began from the state attorney. General's office and cuomo set out to rebuild. His relationship with new yorkers while this investigation was happening making numerous public appearances about the vaccine appearing with key constituency groups while the investigation was happening. But that all seem to change this week when the report actually came out morning joined here today by an clark in june kim the to lead attorneys who are designated as special deputies to announce the findings of their investigation into allegations of sexual harassment made against governor andrew cuomo and so what is in this report. Well first of all. I think the people around cuomo and his critics expected to be bad But it was worse. The independent investigation has concluded that governor andrew cuomo sexually harass multiple women and doing so violated federal and state law and. I would break it down into three buckets of new information. The first is new details from his accusers. That we knew the second is new evidence corroborating. Those allegations and the third is new accusers. We had not previously heard from so in that first category. The details are frankly hard to read one current employees who we identify as executive assistant number one endured repeated physical violations. You had one executive assistant. Who has accused him of groping her november sixteenth twenty twenty in the executive mansion. The governor hugged executive assistant number one and reached under her blouse to grab her breast also saying that she would get so nervous in his presence that she would get highs on the back of her neck. There are also several occasions which the governor grabbed her. But that same assistant said that. He wants requested a selfie photograph with her and when they took that she was shaking so much because he was rubbing her but at the time that the image ended up blurry executive assistant number one had vowed that she was going to take these violations as she put it to the grave. She was terrified that if she spoke out she would lose her job. The new have people like charlotte bennett. Who had worked for the governor last year and who went public with allegations and really. I think helped turn the tide toward opening an investigation. Because she'd actually gone to the governor's office to complain about his behavior in real time when she can find it in the governor that she'd been sexually assaulted in college. He asked her for the details of her assault. We knew in advance the kind of conversations that the governor had had with her. He speculate on how her history as a sexual assault survivor might affect her romantic life asking about her sex life. He asked her whether she had ever been with older men. He told her that he was lonely and wanted to be touched questioned. If she was monogamous relationships he suggested that she got a tattoo. She was contemplating on her. But and ask. The report includes text messages that she sent contemporaneous miss bennet. Text it to a friend on the day. Where many of these comments were made that. She was upset and confused and that she was shaking telling her friends that it was quote the most explicit could be of his behavior she described it as feeling like was being groomed. So this is real time corroborating evidence that what she had originally said was true because she had documented it more or less as it was happening writing and messages. Her friends and the report is filled with these with texts with emails with notes. Taken by the people that charlotte bennett reported his behavior to our investigation revealed that these were not isolated incidents. They were part of a pattern issue. You mentioned new accusers. Can you tell us about them. There are several. The governor's haddon of sexually harassing behavior was not limited to members of his own staff but extended to other state employees. But the one that really stood out both for me in who seemed to resonate politically is a state trooper. Who served as part of his security detail and who described a series of interactions with cuomo. The left her very uncomfortable in an elevator. While standing behind the trooper he ran his finger from her neck down her spine and said hey you another time. She was standing holding the door open for the governor as he passed he took his open hand and ran it across her stomach from her belly. Button to where the hypocrisy keeps her gun. She told us that she felt completely violated to have the governor touch her. She put it between her chest and her privates another time. When the governor found out that the trooper was engaged. He asked her why she wanna get married. Because among other things your sex drive goes down all told. She said his actions left her feeling completely violated and this is a member of his own security team. This was the woman working for him. Charged with keeping him safe and she seemed to feel unsafe herself. Coexistence new executive chambers culture of fear and flotation intimidation and intimacy abuse and affection created a work environment. Ripe for harassment. And the report didn't just cover. Andrew cuomo's behavior covered the culture at the senior levels of his administration. It was a culture where you could not see note to the governor and if you upset him or his senior staff you'll be written off cast.

"Good Morning America. This is the Catch Roundtable John. Cats and the TD's here Sunday morning. What's going on in the world? Governor Andrew Cuomo met with President trump on Friday and we have an exclusive of what happened the Morning Governor. Cuomo this morning Very John. Pleasure to be with you. Thank you for having no traditionally Between you and trump were friends a long time you have differences in certain political things but basically you were friends How did the meeting go on Friday? The the person and And I've had a number of discussions you're right. We're from different. Political parties have different political philosophies. But we've always been able to talk And WE'VE AWHILE. He's been president. We've talked about a number of issues. The issue now is really tied to the main issue. This political Scifo John which is the issue of immigration. And what should this nation do about immigration It comes to light in New York because In New York like thirteen other states we give drivers licenses to undocumented people From a state point of view. I WanNa make sure that people who are driving our roads. PASA driving test. It's a public safety issue so even if you're not in full compliance with the immigration laws. You can get a driver's license if you take the test and if you pass the test because we want to make sure that if you're driving you know what you're doing. The federal government wants access to our department of motor vehicles database. Which would then give them access to the database of undocumented people in the state our state when we passed a law said we won't turn the data over to the federal government If you did then nobody would come forward no undocumented person would come forward and actually apply for a license the Federal Department of Homeland Security. I think is basically extorting New York by setting. If you don't give us the driver's license database we will deny access to a federal program called global entry. Gets a little complicated? John but global entry allows people to go to the federal government and basically get pre-screened so when you come into an airport and you're going through customs you are prescreened and you don't have to wait on these long lines. It's a fast track through customs. A lot of people who travel yet this clear so they don't waste all this time on these borderlines on the everybody hates those lines. Yes in the federal government said If you're a New York we won't allow you access to this fast track process and it's only retaliation for us not giving them the driver's license information they totally unrelated these two things When before they give you. The special pass has to do their own investigation. Don't necessarily need your database to that. That's exactly right John. And that's why this is Infuriating and I think we're too it's to get the fast pass you have to go before the federal government you sit with the federal officials you provide all the documentation you haven't interview and then they give you this Free Fast Pass. It has nothing to do with the driver's license database. They're just using this to force us to give them the driver's license. I said to the Homeland Security Person. Look I'll give you any information. You want anyone applying so the fast track process the global entry. But I'm not going to give you the Department of Motor Vehicle Database and I can understand It's a compromise to be had for instance when I was talking about it years ago and I said undocumented immigrants that committed a crime I have no sympathy for but undocumented immigrants that are working hard and have never committed a crime and they're paying the taxes we should leave them alone. Can we make a deal like that? I offered them the logical solution to their question. I said anyone who's applying for the Global Lynch free Fast Pass. I'll give you whatever you want. Whatever you want. So that is more than a logical and gives them everything they want if they're only using it to extort New York. Well then I can't do anything for them And that's the decision that they're going have to make understood and President going to think about that. The president was going to get back to me next week after he reviewed the situation. Well it sounds logical and I think you came a solution to at least to what other things discussed was The Hudson River tunnel festival Hudson River tunnels have spoken to the president about it. Came up again. The salt which was a tax increase for New Yorkers that ended the deductability state and local taxes no state contributes more to the federal government. The New York state We give about fourteen billion dollars more to the federal government than we get back with a number one contributing state the United States of America and then ending called deductability state and local taxes. Means New York now contribute even more? It was totally share. It was totally political. Basically the the democratic states under their tax bill gave more money to the Republican states. And that's using politics to do government policy in a way that I've never seen happen before. Joe You know we can have our own politics. And we can have an honorable disagreement but you key it extort and you can't use government to penalize your political enemies. That's just wrong well. It seems like they're ever mess in Washington over politics and WHO's still be based on that but that's a big mess in federal government as it is and you does need that tunnel and What I said Jerry. Nadler quote me and ask me talk to the president about it. I said Cherry. It's hard because you've criticized him every day and you're looking to hang them every day If and it's right through Jerry's district or is there a way to compromise anything? Well look even on the tunnels we can. We can compromise. The tunnels are very important because the Amtrak trains comes through the tunnels and they. It's not just into New York. That's the whole northeast corridor. John Dick goes through those tunnels. So you're talking about the whole northeast would lease Amtrak. Train service if those tunnels go down and tunnels are in very bad shape Right now part of a very large project called the Gateway Project which is about thirty billion dollar project which is very expensive. I said we could scale it back. And let's focus on the tunnels I because that's the priority but you're right. The larger dynamic is new. York is a democratic state even than northeastern states tend to be democratic. If you take hyper political viewpoint you would say well. Why would I help? New York in Connecticut and Massachusetts New Hampshire Vermont and many of these democratic states primarily. Yeah except we. That is a really counterproductive. Obnoxious frankly point of view. I'm not going to help citizens who are American citizens who happen to live in democratic states and it's also very bad for the country because New York is a big economic engine. The northeast is a big economic. Engine is cutting your nose despite your face. No but I think all New Yorkers old north Houston is understand that Who also are not discussion. Is Trump gonNA considered some kind of compromise? I hope you know. I hope I talked to him about the soul tax the gateway tunnels. I've talked to him about projects. We're building a new Laguardia Airport. Is You know our needs federal approval to do that? The federal government has slowed down that airport construction project. Your point is right when you said the Congressman Nadler. The president feels that he doesn't get political support in New York and therefore he keeps poking New York but the cycle has to stop John. You know it's you don't treat me well so I'm going to treat you poorly. Yeah but that's just a vicious downward spiral you're one hundred percent right Governor Cuomo that cycle has to stop and everybody should sit around around table and make and do what's best for the country and best for the state I've said to the president if you help us with one of these projects which is a federal project and it's it's good for the country. I'll be one hundred percent cooperative. I want what's good for my state? I don't care if you're democratic Republican short poll. Let's work together and get things done. That's what the game is all about any other issues come up. How long was the beating We met for about an hour. It was a you know. We're both from new. York was a candidate. Frank Conversation I think the president really understood the situation and When he said his he get back to me next week. That was a reasonable position. You know it's a it's a complicated issue and you had to talk to his people so we'll see what he says next week. New York state bail reform the. Da's the district attorney's are up in arms. The police departments are up in arms. What's hey you We appear to have some compromise. Everybody believes impel reforms Governor you know there were a lot of things wrong but it did go too far. What say you? Yeah you know John Bail reform. We made a major change. The major chains was de linking cash. Bail meaning what meaning the way. The system works now is a judge. Basically determines bail and sets bail. And it's a dollar amount and if you can pay the bill get out and if you can't pay bail you sit in jail sometimes for one to three years before your cases even heard that's not justice was not supposed to be about money. It was not supposed to be about rich or poor so we're D- linking cash from the bail system which is right and it's long overdue. This is now a major change though to the system. And when you make a major change you have to step back and see how it works. You know any complex system. John you change one piece you then have to see how the rest of the system reacts the Human Body. They put you on a medication. The doctor says well let's see how it goes and let's see what the consequences are so We made a major change. We understand fully that when you make that kind of change you have to see what the consequences are And then you have to go refine what you did. And that's what we're talking about now. We do have to separate the politics. Because everything is super heated politics now separate politics from the shacks tracks the data and then refined the system. It's not one change. And then you're done you make a change you watch you refine you recalibrate and that's what the legislature is is working on now and. I'm working with them. We're talking to where everyone. What's the Continuing change the continuing refinement. And we're having those conversations right now and I believe we do the state budget April one that by the time we get to the budget we will have had a chance to look at the data. Look at the facts and decide what to do intelligently. I don't want to respond to politics. You know we only in January. Two crime in New York City went up seventeen percent and they attributed about the bail reform and they attributed to the city closing down rikers island. Which a lot of people don't WanNa tell so. I guess everybody's looking for common sense. That's right so you're right. The statistics show the crime. Went up in New York City. Now and you're right John They pointed to factors bail. Reform happened but they're also reducing the number of people in jail at rikers island..
