House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are “credible.”
The California representative joined a chorus of Democrats calling for a truly independent probe into the accusations of misconduct lodged against Cuomo by two of his former staffers.
“The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said in a statement.
“The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.”
The statement came as Cuomo, 63, agreed to let state Attorney General Letitia James appoint an outside investigator into the growing scandal.
His senior adviser Beth Garvey originally said Saturday night that the administration had tapped former federal Judge Barbara Jones to head up an inquiry.
The move quickly drew bipartisan criticism, however, both because Cuomo was trying to dictate his own investigation, and because Jones previously worked with lawyer and key Cuomo advisor Steve Cohen.
As backlash mounted Sunday morning, James requested that the Cuomo administration let her office appoint an independent investigator, as state law prescribes.
The concession from Cuomo came after several New York lawmakers, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx/Queens), had stressed the importance of an unbiased investigation.
“Lindsey Boylan and Charlotte Bennett’s detailed accounts of sexual harassment by Gov. Cuomo are extremely serious and painful to read,” wrote AOC. “There must be an independent investigation — not one led by an individual selected by the Governor, but by the office of the Attorney General.”

But his mass murder of 15,000 seniors is not credible?
She’s a me too person. So bfd. Although in this rare case, I agree with her. Cuomo is an ignoramus and a bully.
taking out the competition. harris must not be challenged
Whoa. Mafia vs. Mafia. This could get ugly.
What about the sexual harassment complaints against Biden?
(Or is Pelosi just a political whore, drifting in whatever direction the political wind currently blows?)
P2 calls Nanzi as more than likely to be retarded.
Liberals eating liberals. The only thing better ...
Trump 2024! MAGAA :)
This is the “consolidation” period of any fascist regime.
If the drain hole in the floor of the basement level of Lubyanka prison could tell stories.
Tara Reade must be going nuts.
So is Cuomo actually toast? After Ralph Northam, I don’t ever believe Democrats are done until they actually resign, because the media is usually content to let it go with that party.
Coordinated takedown of Cuomo.
All long since pre-planned.
Newsom may be a similar case, though I’m not sure about the pre-planning, exactly. The recall seems to have at least begun as genuine grass-roots legit.
What are they up to?? Why the take downs of Cuomo and Newsom???
Nancy probably ordered him to do it so she ain’t gonna mention that. Seriously, Cuomo is stupid but is he THAT stupid to put infected people in nursing homes? What? I think he was ordered to do it as were the other Rat governors solely to up the death quota so Trump could be blamed which is exactly what Cuomo did all last year. All we got from the guy was “It’s Trumps fault, Trumps fault” and Democraps didn’t say one peep. It was only after the REAL number of dead was revealed that the outrage intensified and democrats now need a scapegoat which is Andrew.
I really hope Cuomo opens his mouth. I think Democrats today under Pelosi are so over the top evil it’s unreal, I think she completely lost her mind in her vicious hatred of Trump and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if she had that virus purposely released. If evidence of that ever surfaced, can you imagine? We would have a speaker responsible or involved in a crime against humanity, the biggest terror attack in human history.
Well this is certainly getting… Interesting. I guess Cuomo is too much of a liability for the Democrat party all of a sudden, after I gave him an Emmy for his coronavirus speeches.
Cuomo must not be a part of Queenie’s mob.
They will take Biden out when it is expedient to do so, right now is not the time.
Maybe there is an agreement in place: Cuomo falls on his sword over the harassment charges, and he gets to skate on the murders.
