Biden calls on Cuomo to resign

Biden calls on Cuomo to resign

 President Joe Biden called on Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign Tuesday, following an official report that said Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women.

"He should resign," Biden told reporters at the White House.

Asked whether Cuomo should be removed from office if he refuses to resign, Biden said, "I understand the state legislature may decide to impeach, I do not know that for a fact."

Shortly after Biden's response, New York State House Speaker Carl Heastie, a Democrat, announced that the chamber would seek to quickly conclude its impeachment inquiry into the governor.

In calling on Cuomo to step down, Biden joined nearly every other major Democratic lawmaker in both Albany and Washington. But from atop the party leadership, Biden's demand carries more weight than others.

Cuomo's press office did not respond to a request for comment from CNBC on the president's remarks.

The report released Tuesday by state Attorney General Letitia James summarized a monthslong probe by concluding that Cuomo "sexually harassed multiple women, and in doing so violated federal and state law," James said at a press conference.

The lawyers are panicking to get in on this one.

CNN is leading with this but something tells me The Chris Cuomo hour will be discussing how to make a great red sauce instead! 

If Chris Cuomo had any integrity,   after slamming all of the Trump relatives for not calling out Trump,  he would start his show stating that he called his brother and asked him to resign.

That was some cruel irony, hearing Biden say that. (Unchallenged by the press of course.)

Then there is the question of whether any president should ever voice any opinion on matters concerning state politics. I would have preferred hearing him say, "It's none of my business," but I doubt we'll ever again hear a POTUS say that.

well sir...

I figure any guy who sez he is innocent is entitled to face his chicken sheet anonymous babe accusers.

instead the NY state assembly will do a kangaroo court routine.

DeathSantis, I think is going to be the next GOP nominee for president.

With all that's going on in Florida right now, I think he's got the right stuff to impress the Republican party.

President Biden is the leader of the Democratic Party. Cuomo is his business.

Oh, Get real, Joe Biden is not Your grab'em by the

😼😼😼😼😼president.

And As far as I know he hasn't been in court over paying a pornstar to keep quiet about a sexual affair that he had while his wife was recovering from giving childbirth.

And I could go on and on, but you know the rest.🐍

And the Republican voters knew he was a 🐍 when they voted for him.

What would that right stuff be? An unnecessary high Covid death count? These guys have a weird idea of freedom. Whether or not you have that colonoscopy - entirely your decision and you suffer any consequences. Whether or not you get the vaccine - a decision you make for yourself that has an effect on everybody else as well. This is not rocket science.

Their "weird idea of freedom" is the "right stuff" for a majority of GOP voters.

Rats, you scooped me!

From Wapo:

"New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced his resignation Tuesday in an effort to head off a looming impeachment effort in the state Assembly after a state investigation found he sexually harassed 11 women and oversaw an unlawful attempt to exact retribution against one of his accusers."
