New York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced Friday that they will end the impeachment investigation into Governor Andrew Cuomo after his resignation announcement earlier in the week.
The Assembly’s Judiciary Committee had been investigating Cuomo and his administration for five months to determine whether they would continue forward with removal proceedings.
That probe never got that far after a scathing report from Attorney General Letitia James outlined nearly a dozen victims of Cuomo’s alleged sexual harassment.
“Let me be clear — the committee’s work over the last several months, although not complete, did uncover credible evidence in relation to allegations that have been made in reference to the governor,” Heastie said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Republicans across the state blasted the decision to end the probe.
