Statement from Speaker Carl Heastie and Assembly Judiciary Chair Charles Lavine
The Assembly Judiciary Committee will continue to review evidence and issue a final report on its investigation of Governor Cuomo. In doing so, the committee will take all appropriate steps to ensure that this effort does not interfere with various ongoing investigations by the United States Attorney concerning nursing home data; the attorney general concerning the governor’s memoir; and local law enforcement authorities in five jurisdictions – Manhattan, Albany, Westchester, Nassau, and Oswego – regarding possible criminal incidents of sexual misconduct.
The committee will review all evidence it collected and finalize its inquiry with a final report. Just this past Friday the committee said no point to it continuing the investigation of Cuomo beyond his planned resignation date of Aug. 25.
