(READ) Former NY Gov. Cuomo subpoenaed by Pandemic Subcommittee

The head of the Covid Pandemic Committee, Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), has subpoenaed former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to appear for a deposition on May 24.

According to Wenstrup, Cuomo has “repeatedly and unjustifiably delayed” the committee’s investigation into Cuomo’s nursing home policies by not responding to requests for weeks, ignoring staff’s attempts to negotiate interview dates and times, and providing unreasonable availability — nine months after the interview was originally requested.

On March 25, 2020, Cuomo issued a mandate that forced New York nursing homes and long-term care facilities to admit or re-admit potentially contagious and untested Covid-19 patients. According to investigators, this order recklessly exposed New York’s most vulnerable population to Covid-19 with deadly consequences.

During the Cuomo Administration, it was reported that more than 15,000 people died in New York nursing homes and long-term care facilities. Evidence also suggests that Cuomo allegedly engaged in a coverup to hide the true New York nursing home mortality rate from the public and shift political blame away from his administration. 

Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo implemented nursing home policies that had deadly consequences for New York’s most vulnerable population. Not only did the former Governor put the elderly in harm’s way, but he also attempted to cover-up his failures by hiding the true nursing home death rate. It appears that politics, not medicine, was responsible for these decisions. And that while Mr. Cuomo is adept at seeking legal advice, he is not necessarily adept at seeking medical advice.

Former Governor Cuomo owes answers to the 15,000 families who lost loved ones in New York nursing homes during the Covid-19 pandemic. His testimony is crucial to uncover the circumstances that led to his misguided policies and for ensuring that fatal mistakes never happen again. It is well past time for Cuomo to stop dodging accountability to Congress and start answering honestly to the American people.”
