WATCH: Former NY Governor To Be Hauled In Front Of Congressional Covid Committee

Disgraced, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is finally going to appear before Congress to testify about his dramatic policy failures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The former governor will appear before the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on June 11.

At the time, Cuomo faced growing calls to resign over a crisis resulting in scores of excess nursing home deaths during his time in office, yet he did not resign due to the nursing home scandal.

Cuomo eventually resigned due to sexual allegations against him in the summer of 2021.

New York’s former Governor reportedly delayed his appearance before Congress for months, according to the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic:

The New York Post reminded readers:

New York’s comptroller found that Cuomo had “misled the public” in undercounting such deaths by more than 50%.

Cuomo’s order potentially caused 1,000 additional nursing home deaths, according to an analysis by The Empire Center.

Concerned Americans chimed in that Cuomo was far from the only governor who instituted these disastrous Covid-19 policies in their states.

CNN attempted to defend Cuomo:

Cuomo has insisted that advisory was consistent with guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

However, his upcoming appearance before lawmakers is a sign of continuing scrutiny over his handling of long-term care facilities during the pandemic.
