Cuomo’s administration being investigated by U.S. Attorney’s office, FBI over nursing homes

The U.S. Attorney’s Office and FBI are investigating Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of nursing home deaths during the coronavirus pandemic.

The administration revealed in recent weeks that 15,000 long-term care residents died, which was a significant increase over the previously reported 8,500 number.

Spokespeople for the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn and the FBI declined to comment, according to NBC.

The Times Union reports that the the probe by the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of New York. It’s apparently in the early stages and is focusing on some of the work done by senior members of the Governor’s task force.

“As we publicly said, DOJ (Department of Justice) has been looking into this for months,” said Richard Azzopardi, a spokesman for the governor. “We have been cooperating with them and we will continue to.”

Cuomo made headlines on Wednesday after it was confirmed that he threatened a sitting assemblyman during a phone call asking for his support.
