Biden wants to see outcome of investigation into Cuomo

U.S. President Joe Biden told reporters at the White House on Sunday (March 14) he wanted to see the outcome of the investigation into New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is facing pressure to resign over sexual harassment allegations.

Asked if Cuomo should resign, Biden told reporters: “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.”

Cuomo faces accusations of sexual harassment leveled by seven young women and has come under pressure from revelations that his administration withheld the number of nursing home residents killed by COVID-19 in the state.

On Friday, New York’s two U.S. senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and multiple members of the state’s congressional delegation, including leading liberal voice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, called on Cuomo to step down.
