NEW YORK – Assemblyman Michael Tannousis (R,C- Staten Island/Brooklyn) and his Republican colleagues of the Judiciary Committee sent a letter on November 24 to various law enforcement agencies around the state regarding the final report of the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment investigation. The letter was sent to Attorney General Letitia James, New York State Joint Commission on Public Ethics Chairperson Jose Nieves, New York State Division of Human Rights Acting Commissioner Maria Imperial, Albany County District Attorney David Soares, New York County District Attorney Cy Vance Jr., Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah, and Acting Nassau County District Attorney Joyce Smith.
Tannousis said: “The evidence uncovered by the Judiciary Committee which is outlined in the final report proves that former Governor Cuomo routinely abused the power of his office and violated the public’s trust. His actions were inexcusable and irresponsible. The report outlined numerous incidents of sexual harassment, the improper use of state resources for personal gain and reckless handling of the state’s nursing home response. The Judiciary Committee interviewed over 200 witnesses and reviewed approximately 600,000 pages of evidence. The pursuit of justice and accountability now warrants that all applicable law enforcement agencies now utilize this evidence to seek justice for the victims and the taxpayers.”
