John Zmirak and Eric Discuss the Travesties Inflected by Democrats
"About the translators in Afghanistan who helped Americans fight our stupid war over there? And when Biden abandoned them, they're being shot. They're being starved to death. Their wives are being raped and sold as sex slaves for the Taliban. What about the old people, the military veterans and great grandparents? Who died of COVID in nursing homes because Democrats dump COVID patients there on purpose to spike the death statistics so they could do states of emergency and mail in balloting and steal the election. Yes. Yes, the Democrats did it on purpose. They did it in state after state. No Republican state did this. Compared the death toll of old people in Florida full of old people with New York. It was much higher in New York because in New York, the governor was trying to kill old people. And that's one thing Andrew Cuomo could succeed at. He might not have been able to get his interns to go to bed with him, but he could kill helpless old people. Well, John, I want to say, I just want to clarify again. Folks, this is true. When my wife Suzanne was sharing some of this stuff with me, it was very hard for me to believe it. I just thought, come on. Look, I don't like the cuomos, and I don't like democratic politicians, but to send people to their deaths, I don't believe they would do that. So it took me some time. Faith believe, believe my friend, believe. What would I mean? It did take me time to process this. And if you don't care about this, if you think, well, we'll just we'll let it go. That's not okay, folks. What was done to people all around this country, we have to have a reckoning. It's the right thing to do. And I also want to say what you said yesterday, John. This was done deliberately to make the death rates go up because there were many things that happened if the death rates went up. So all kinds of people that didn't really die of COVID were marked down as dying of COVID.
Andrew Klavan on the Status of Courage in a Post-COVID World
"Status of courage after the last two and a half years of COVID, what's your diagnosis? Oh, it was. You have courage left? Oh, it was embarrassing. And it had a cause, the cause was materialism, the lack of faith. When you have these guys, when Donald Trump stood up, this is one of my favorite moments because I have this kind of morbid sense of humor. But when Donald Trump got COVID and he stood up on the balcony, took his mask off. The news media went nuts. And there are two words to describe women, the word womanly, which is what you look for in a woman, a womanly woman will she walks into the room, men straighten up, and they stand up. But woman ish is the opposite of that. It's kind of like macho is for men. It's kind of this over emotional hysterical, fearful idea. Well, if the press was not woman in that moment, I've never seen it. And there were all men. There were all men going, no, be afraid. Trump said, don't be afraid. Don't let it dominate. Be not afraid. Jake tapper said, no. Be afraid. I just cracked up because I thought, no, that is what they've sold us for these two years. Andrew Cuomo, there's nothing worse than death. What's worse than death? Of course you have to give up your dream and close your business and closure. Because otherwise, it's death and death is death. Well, you know, some of us believe that no, there are things more important freedom is more important than life. I mean, you're willing to die to stay free. You're willing to die to protect your family. You're willing to die to stand up for what you believe in if it's important enough. So once you believe the death, there's nothing worse than death and death is everything. You're a coward by nature. I mean, you have to be. It's only logical. And that's what they've been preaching. And of course they're preaching it. If they steal power by creating crises, what good is a crisis if you're not afraid.
What's Going on With the New York Governor's Race?
"From New York Charlie, what's going with the New York governor's race? It sure seems like Lee zeldin is closing in, what do the latest polls show? So on September 11th, Kathy holker had a 6 point lead against Lee zeldin. Now remember the backstory here, Andrew Cuomo was a very popular Democrat governor until he became a problem for the regime, and they took him out. Kathy hochul took office, no one knew who she was. Crime in New York is way up, inflation is way up in New Yorkers are ready to give the middle finger to the Democrat party. Now there is a new poll from coefficient poll. Now, I've never heard of this polling agency coefficient poll. Can you guys tell me if it's, I don't know if it leans right or left? I don't know. But it shows Lee zeldin, Republican running for governor of New York in the lead. By one point. This is one of the deepest blue states in the country. And you see Lee zeldin up one point in the latest New York governor's poll. Why is this happening? Let's remind ourselves play cut a hundred New York City announces the beautiful. Luxurious. Well, tailored. Well funded centers for illegal criminals that march into your country and your city, they get treated better than our homeless vets. Play cut 100. When migrants first walk in after intake, they will see a recreational room set up with rows of couches, TVs, xboxes, and board games. There will also be a phone bank so migrants can connect with family in order to find more permanent housing. Next, there is a cafeteria that will provide migrants with three meals a day and snacks, coffee and tea will be available 24/7. Those meals are all culture appropriate. It is South American fare. The senselessness of the crime happening in New York City is remarkable. People getting shoved in front of subways on the platform. What is the point of that? They're not stealing money. No, they want to see other people suffer.
Is NY's Anti-Trump Attorney General on the Verge of Collapse?
"Matt Vespa is New York's anti Trump attorney general in the verge of collapse Good lord that would be wonderful That would be a coup if this were to happen come election day No I'm not talking about a literal coup Just a nice upset win against an anti Trump zealot Still a Republican winning statewide and deep blue New York for an office they usually doesn't get much attention Certainly by the media would be a nice scalp for the party this election cycle Attorney general letitia James seemed poised to become a serious gubernatorial candidate in the wake of the groping fiasco That engulfed governor Andrew Cuomo a scandal that became so enveloping that he was forced to resign GE what happened to that poof gone James was one of the state officials that took the allegations seriously A report confirming that Cuomo had engaged in sexual harassment was probably the kill shot to his governorship Catholic replaced him and took a strong lead in the polls Which forced James to retreat Opting to run for another term as New York attorney general James has openly declared war on Donald Trump You can not have a prosecutor Somebody who runs to be prosecutor and then as a prosecutor whose targeting somebody and that's what James has done and she ought to lose her license She should be disbarred but she won't be
Lee Zeldin: Kathy Hochul Is Much Worse Than Andrew Cuomo
"I've seen a lot of bad politicians candidly on both sides She is uniquely terrible She's the governor select She has never been elected to be the governor Of course we had the Cuomo scandal But I listened to her speak in this condescending kind of kiss my butt tone and despite the dreadful public safety situation of people fleeing New York and droves She acts like she's selling you a diamond when she's selling you at this point a rotten egg which is the broken government in New York She's been really really terrible And that's one of the other reasons I think you've got a really good shot I think she's even turned off evidenced by all of your Democrat endorsements that even some Democrats in the party are like I've had enough of this Yeah to your point exactly And I have it at the top of my social media feeds and at Lee's Eldon's my Twitter feed for example And you can see this video where she's at an airport today getting pressed by this reporter about why is people why are people leaving the state in droves And she just can't answer the question But on top of it you mentioned Andrew Cuomo at first people are saying Kathy hochul was Andrew Cuomo two Now people aren't even saying anymore because they believe that she is that much worse For example every 30 days she was signing off on COVID emergency power self claimed unilateral not from the state legislature She just granted it herself New York has a competitive bidding law She suspended the competitive bidding law What did she do with that This will make even if you live in the other corner of America this is going to make all the hair stand up She gets a donation from a family $300,000 She ends up giving the company that this family runs And over 6 $100 million no bid COVID testing contract and paid over twice the going rate of the COVID tests
Ex-aide who alleged sexual harassment sues Andrew Cuomo
"A one time aid to former governor Andrew Cuomo sues him saying he tried to groom her for a sexual relationship and then smeared her reputation publicly Charlotte Bennett's lawsuit was at least the second to be filed against Andrew Cuomo after multiple women made sexual harassment accusations against the former New York governor forcing his resignation Bennett's lawsuit also named three former aides of Cuomo as defendants It seeks unspecified damages saying Bennett experienced anxiety depression and a neurological disorder after sexual comments by the governor spoiled her job In a statement Cuomo's attorney says he's always said he didn't harass anyone and with each day that goes by more and more information is uncovered showing how evidence favorable to the governor was suppressed Julie Walker New York
Amber Athey: Polls Suggest Mar-a-Lago Raid Backfired on Democrats
"Half Mar-a-Lago is this thing the Mar-a-Lago gate scandal The rate of Mar-a-Lago is this backfiring as badly as I think it is on the left Yeah the polls suggest that it is I mean when you have Andrew Cuomo coming out and saying that the Justice Department went too far that's a pretty good sign that this is going to backfire and Republican voters in particular are saying that this makes them both more likely to go out and vote in the midterms and more likely to vote for former president Donald Trump in 2024 So the Democrats might think that by doing all of these various investigations in hoaxes against Trump they're making him toxic but they're actually making him more popular than ever And I think that more moderates are actually seeing the desperation behind these plays and are very troubled by the weaponization of our justice system against political opponents
Julie Hartman: The Time Andrew Cuomo Threw Me a Curveball
"Me. You know, you mentioned in the last segment that I guess toasted for you a few months ago. So I haven't been back on that show since I was in your seat, but it's great to be here. And you did a great job. The feedback we got as expected. You got rave reviews. Everybody loved the job you did. And you know, people think hosting a few hours a day is a little bit like Joe Biden riding a bike. What could go wrong? Well, as we both know, Mike, there's a lot that could go wrong. Two days earlier, I guess toasted for Dennis, and it was my first time. I was 21 years old ever hosting a national radio show and it was daunting. And halfway through my first segment, I got a notification in my ear from our producer Sean that governor Andrew Cuomo had just resigned. He's saying to me, you've got to announce it now on air. You've got to announce it and I'm thinking, oh my God. I am 5 minutes into my first national radio show. This had to happen now. Right, and you had it all mapped out in your mind. You were ready with the monologue. You knew what you were going to do, and then totally. Then leave it, leave it to Cuomo to throw you a
What Is the Connection Between Paul Pelosi and John R. Allen?
"Here is a question. It's about Paul Pelosi. Charlie I'm hearing from an extremely reliable person that night that Paul Pelosi was arrested for a DUI that he had a sidearm handgun in his possession while intoxicated. It's one of the reasons that the DA is refusing to get more information on the arrest, they might drop the charges altogether. From Nate, who listens up in beautiful North Dakota. So will Paul Pelosi be charged probably not. No, he's part of the untouchable class because Nancy Pelosi is very useful. But we also had another question that emailed us freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, Charlie, I thought, so this is based on the story of marine general John R Allen, who led U.S. and NATO force in Afghanistan and then ran the brookings institution. He has recently had his data seized by the FBI and what seems to be a soon to be indictment against him for illegally lobbying for Qatar and lobbying for their interests in Washington, D.C.. Someone asked they said Charlie sent the story that said Charlie, I thought you said these people were untouchable. Well, there is a little bit of an asterisk to that, right? So they're untouchable as long as they are useful to the regime. But our current regime, they've studied closely and intently how the Soviet Union ran their country. You see that with the show trials, you see that with the erroneous arrests, but we must understand that tyrants, when they're doing what they do best, which is evil. When they are executing their evil at their best, they must always keep the ruled and also the people around them on their toes. So if they want to actually hold on the political power, they must randomly pick off people. And keep you on your toes that think is if the sword of damocles could drop on you at any time that there must be a sense of paranoia. This is exactly why they were okay taking out Andrew Cuomo Andrew Cuomo was unusual, but they also kind of wanted to make an example. Like, hey, no one is above the rest around here. Everyone kind of worships at the altar of a couple political families, and we are the untouchables and you are not.
Hunter Biden Reportedly Earned $11M From Foreign Business Deals
"NBC. Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive proves $11 million in payments from China. And what are those two stories have to do with one another? You're trying to tell me that NBC would send a bunch of reporters to look through Hunter Biden's laptop to create a negative headline. If Democrats were doing super well right now, remember the entire probe criminally into Hunter Biden is nakedly political for the sole and intended purpose and fact to try to make Joe Biden removable. Now Joe Biden does have an insurance policy. Joe Biden's handlers were very smart in one way. You might say Charlie, what is that insurance policy? The insurance policy is not like the Peter struck stroke smirk or the Lisa page lover from the FBI. None of the insurance policy is that they decided to pick an even more unpopular person to become vice president. Which is if the regime wants to remove Joe Biden assail boy, we got to deal with the that's not good. The Biden team realized that the only thing less popular than Joe Biden. So they got a decision to make, they say, well, at least we can control Biden because hunter did crimes all across the world. NBC News, Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he his firm earned $11 million from 2013 to 2018. This is a common technique that is executed by deep state Democrats against politicians they don't like. Andrew Cuomo fell victim to this, Jesse Jackson junior fell coma to this. Fell victim to this. Rod Blagojevich fell victim to this. It is a common technique, which is to use all of the previously rumored criminal activity of a Democrat, bring it to the surface to try to get that Democrat to heal or to foose. Dog term I used yesterday to obey, and if they become politically un useful, which we just are showing their Joe Biden is so unpopular, you have a means of removing him or a means of making sure that he does not run for office.
The Virus Was a Pretext for the Nullification of the US Constitution
"Before this happened before virus patients were dumped like typhoid Mary into nursing homes in Democrat state after Democrats state of the Democrat state. Before that happened, Biden announced his main adviser and coronavirus was Ezekiel Emanuel, who had written that nobody should live past age 70 and to make that happen, you shouldn't even give lifesaving medications to patients over 70. So you got an advocate of euthanasia for the elderly as Biden's main adviser during coronavirus. At the same time that the Democrats in state after state after state dumped coronavirus Mary in nursing homes inflating their death statistics justifying the closure of churches, the state of emergency that forbade political meetings, remember Gretchen Whitmer was denounced by her state Supreme Court for violating the constitution of Michigan. She should be removed from office and then criminally charged for that. She won't be. Andrew Cuomo was using this coronavirus state of emergency in New York to justify seizing guns to justify nullifying the Second Amendment. He said the state of emergency caused by the virus gave him the power to suspend what remaining gun rights exist in New York State. So what we're seeing is the China virus was a pretext for the nullification of the constitution and the Democrats pushed as far as they could in as many places as they could. They didn't try to lock down of the kind we see now in Shanghai, where people are being padlocked in their homes to starve. But the only reason we're not seeing that is because they couldn't get away with it.
Could 'Big Guy' Joe Biden Be Implicated in Hunter Biden Scandal?
"Funny. How when we dive into these stories, we're supposed to believe that all of a sudden the Department of Justice has found a backbone and found a spine and they now have a moral compass. Of course not. This is all done for a reason. It was always looming over Biden in case he became too unpopular and they gave him a shot. They said, maybe Biden will kind of be a popular president. Maybe he'll be helpful. And then we'll cover it up. I mean, you look at the crimes that the obamas committed, the crimes that the clintons have committed. They only get prosecuted when they're no longer near power or important to power. Now they can get discarded, but if they are still trying to get near power and they're unpopular or there are threat to their aims and ambitions, Andrew Cuomo, them, get them out of the way. It's a waste of time. But it's no longer just Hunter Biden. It's no longer just hunter. Instead, we are now seeing the grand jury investigation because of the thumbs up because of the go get them clearance, you're starting to see all of a sudden Joe Biden potentially be implicated in this. Alongside Ron klain and others play cut 52. Let's go back to 2020, the New York Post then released a bombshell report on a loosely coated email written by one of Hunter Biden's business partners. He discussed the equity distribution on a deal with a Chinese energy conglomerate. It included this question. Ten held by H for the big guy. Now last week, The Washington Post confirmed that $4.8 million in payments from that same Chinese company made their way to Hunter Biden and the president's brother James. This weekend White House chief of staff Ron claim came to bat for the family. Of course the president's confident that his son didn't break the law. But most importantly, as I said, that's a matter that's going to be decided by the Justice Department by the legal process. It's something that no one at The White House has involvement in.
Former NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Eyes Political Comeback
"You notice how they're all worried about the American worker now you know Democrat government Remember the great Andrew Cuomo shutting down businesses left and right people dying left and right in nursing homes as he's shoving COVID infected people into nursing homes Hey I'm just following the science no actually you're doing the opposite of the science Hey The great Andrew Cuomo Mister Hans like Al Franken did you see that out Franken in this thinking about running for the Senate again You see the Democrats they get four or 5 years and then everyone forgets what they did You forget what they did We'd like our back Old touchy feely house Good guy Hey how are you But anyway I think Cuomo he'll be back He's already said he wish he didn't resign Sure He'll be back why not He said Democrat You had Ted Kennedy trapp aquatic Ted He was back They're all back
Brian Stelter Suggests Cuomo Influenced Jeff Zucker's Resignation
"The reality is CNN stinks The ratings are terrible The programming is terrible There's nothing good about it anymore There really isn't They need a missing plane they need somebody Somebody to go missing You remember the time Don lemon suggested the plane may have gone to a black hole Yes he did He really did He said that that's not a joke It's true story right there So anyway so knowing all that then when they got rid of Jeff Zucker it was very obvious why they got rid of them They used the excuse about the girlfriend They used the excuse about that but that's not really why they did it If he was successful he would still be there right now That's the truth These are two consenting adults They're both divorced They had a relationship It was an open secret It was the worst kept secret at CNN Jeff Zucker has gone anyway Why is that Well Brian stelter suggesting today that the lesser Cuomo was behind this entire thing cut number three Cuomo was fired in December and he is not going out quietly He was fired and there were reports that he wasn't going to get paid the millions of dollars that were going to be on the remainder of his contract So as a source said to me earlier today he was trying to burn the place down He was going to court trying to burn the place down and claiming that he had incriminating information about Zucker and ghost So if that's the case if this is a domino effect that begins with Andrew Cuomo going down the governor's office and then Chris Cuomo being fired from CNN and then Jeff Zucker losing his job at CNN That is a remarkable domino effect a chain of events I think that is part of the story

"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.

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.

"Let's go back to the summer of two thousand nine hundred. Nineteen very powerful. People in society have been outed and exposed as having abused women andrew cuomo. Who's one of the most powerful democratic politicians in the us repeatedly with impunity for a long period of time towards the start of his third term as governor of the state of new york is campaigning. Hard for really significant piece of legislation that would make it easier for women to come forward. An object to sexual harassment in the workplace and cuomo sees this as fulfillment of his reputation as a champion of women's rights. Let's honor all the women who have suffered this a and endured this humiliation and let's actually change things but we now know that on the very next day cuomo was being driven to an official event by a female state trooper sort of state equivalent of the secret service and he asked why she wasn't wearing a dress and when she shocked and horrified by the question said well. It's because you have not put a gun. He pressed on and said why did she wear such dot colors. When they got to the destination she was taken aside and told that she should not report that conversation to anybody else that what it had stays in the truck so what we saw was signing a major new anti sexual harassment act and committing. I'll ghibli exactly the same kind of behavior that that act was designed to trap on the very next day. This was just one of many.

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.

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.

People's lives are affected.

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.

"What will they do with andrew. Cuomo this is. This is the man who they referred to as the governor of the year. This is the man the media loved. This is the man the media defended. This is the man that the media circled wagons around. This is the man who said he had done nothing wrong. He had done everything possible to protect senior citizens. And the attorney general viewer came out and said he lied about that. Understated deaths fifty percent of the media gave him a pass on that. Will they give pass on this. They're starting to turn on him. It appears they're starting to turn on him on on msnbc. They're beginning to savage him right now but willie hang on. We'll they impeach him. They need to shut up about trump. if they don't they need to shut up about trump if they don't they're hypocrites or you know they can claim to take the high ground and they can turn on andrew cuomo in make him the fall guy in order for them to hold their head up high. According to the attorney general in new york senior staff within the executive chamber engaged in a series of retaliatory actions in fact they went so far as to prepare a proposed op-ed originally drafted by the governor himself that contain personal and professional attacks on his boylan. One of the people who accused him of inappropriate behavior. Here is john king on cnn. But that is the big question. What are the next steps.
