Senator Brouk on Closure of Impeachment Proceedings Against Andrew Cuomo

I am incredibly disappointed with the decision to close the impeachment investigation into Andrew Cuomo. The Governor’s resignation was not an act of nobility⁠—it was because he committed unlawful acts and was out of options. Resignation should not preclude him from being impeached or otherwise held accountable. From the very beginning to his final words during his resignation, this Governor has used gaslighting and other tactics to evade responsibility for his horrific actions. We know that based on the findings of the Attorney General’s report, the Governor abused his power and harassed women⁠—several of which were New York State employees. Impeachment or not, we must not forget that he is guilty of these crimes and that survivors deserve justice.
