This basically exemplifies the two-tiered “justice” system that we live in in the United States. If you were to hide your income from the Fed, you would get audited by the IRS, pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and spend about a decade in jail. But New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hid the data of how many people he killed in nursing and retirement homes from Trump’s DOJ in order to avoid being investigated, and I highly doubt anything will come of it.
In a private meeting with New York Democrat lawmakers, Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa apologized to said lawmakers, not to admit fault in how the administration handled the Chinese coronavirus pandemic in the state, but because hiding all this stuff made it harder for them in the election and inconvenienced them against their Republican opponents.
According to The New York Post, DeRosa had said that the Cuomo administration “had rebuffed a legislative request for the tally in August because ‘right around the same time, [President Trump] turns this into a giant political football.’”
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” she continued. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after Newsom, starts going after Gretchen Whitmer… [Trump] directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us. And basically, we froze. Because then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation. That played a very large role into this.”
“So we do apologize. I do understand the position that [Democrats] were put in. I know that it is not fair. It was not our intention to put you into that political position with the Republicans.”
The first indication of any semblance of an apology from the Cuomo administration regarding how they handled the Chinese coronavirus, and it isn’t directed at the people of New York, nor at the families of those who they killed, but at the Democrat candidates who were “inconvenienced” by the covering up of genocide by the governor. This is right out of a Hollywood movie in terms of an evil government organization.
The New York Post also points out that they weren’t just lying to the Feds (a crime which would land pretty much anyone else in jail, but not to the ruling class), but also to the media (no surprise there) and even “fought a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by the Empire Center on Public Policy.”
They tried their damned hardest to make sure that the number of people that they killed would not be released to the public. And largely for political reasons, as DeRosa pointed out.
Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi said in a prepared statement: “We explained that the Trump administration was in the midst of a politically motivated effort to blame democratic states for COVID deaths and that we were cooperating with Federal document productions and that was the priority and now that it is over we can address the state legislature.”
Politically motivated or not, Trump was CORRECTLY pointing out that Democrats were doing a terrible job in handling the Chinese coronavirus and correctly pointed out that Cuomo outright KILLED thousands of people through just his March 25 nursing home executive order alone. Their effort to hide that information was, among the biggest things, politically motivated because if they showed everyone how incompetent, at best, Democrats are in governing, fewer people would have a reason to vote for Biden over Trump. They wanted Trump out and kept damaging information from the public in order to achieve that.
They attack Trump with exactly what they themselves are culpable of, but there’s nothing new about that.
At any rate, The NY Post also pointed out that last month, NY AG Letitia James released (for some reason) quite the damning report about the estimation of nursing home deaths in the state, and Health Commissioner Howard Zucker finally relented and released figures showing that, by January 19, 12,743 people had died in nursing homes.
It’s worth mentioning that a day before that number was released, the NY DOH was publicly acknowledging only 8,711 deaths in nursing homes, which in itself showed how incompetent, at best, Cuomo is.
Further, in a Wednesday letter to lawmakers, Zucker acknowledged that the tally had risen to 13,297, and that number climes to 15,049 when counting assisted living/adult care facilities.
It’s because of that report by the NY Attorney General that Cuomo went on to have a rather controversial press conference (to an extent, seeing as the fake news media made sure to bury that conference as much as they could so as to not hurt their comrade) in which he said: “Who cares [if they] died in the hospital, died in a nursing home? They died.”
That was Cuomo’s “What difference does it make?” moment, but the fake news media made sure to keep that from being known to as many people as possible, instead trying to center around the sham second impeachment of Trump which just about NOBODY cares about because everyone knows it’s a sham.
Even *I* haven’t talked much about it because it’s pretty much irrelevant. Trump is, unsurprisingly, innocent of everything they are accusing him of, and the entire process is so unconstitutional and illegitimate that even CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS, who HATES Trump, wanted no part in it. The only reason they were trying to convict him now that he’s out of office is so that they could try to say that he can’t run again because conviction means he legally can’t run for office again. Which would have been more believable and a bigger threat if this wasn’t an unconstitutional and illegal trial, therefore even if Trump had been convicted (which he wasn't going to be anyway), why would he not run again anyway?
But at any rate, returning to the subject of this article, Andrew Cuomo undoubtedly deserves to go to jail. If not for carrying on a genocide of the elderly, at the very least for lying to the Feds. They went after Michael Flynn for him FORGETTING a detail he had testified to months earlier, so why would the Feds not go after Cuomo for lying to them about how many people he’s killed?
That is the kind of question we could realistically ask ourselves if we lived in a just, or at least impartial and law-abiding/enforcing, society. Like I said in the opening of this article, the situation exemplifies the two-tiered justice system that exists in this country.
If you or I were to hide information from the government, or if Cuomo were a Republican (non-Establishment, of course), the DOJ would come hard on the culprits, the FBI would be raiding offices, the works. But Cuomo is a comrade of the establishment, so he will get away with it.
During the Wednesday conference with lawmakers, DeRosa said that it appeared that the DOJ would not be going after them for the genocide they carried out: “All signs point to they are not looking at this, they’ve dropped it. They never formally opened an investigation. They sent a letter asking a number of questions and then we satisfied those questions and it appears that they’re gone.”
Of course they’re gone, the establishment never goes after their own. And, by the way, this would still be the case even if Trump were currently serving his earned second term. Keep in mind that Cuomo was actively killing the elderly in his state at the very least beginning on March 25, when he gave his executive order to fill nursing and retirement homes with sick people. That was in 2020, when Trump was still the sitting president and Barr was his AG. Barr, being an establishment rat, had zero intention whatsoever to investigate Cuomo’s crimes against humanity.
Cuomo absolutely deserves to be thrown in prison for a number of crimes, the least of which was lying to the federal government, but just because he deserves it doesn’t mean that that’s what he’ll get.
Well, I say that, I don’t know exactly what will happen. Maybe some day, he will be thrown in prison like he should but I wouldn’t hold my breath for it, particularly any time soon.
Even if any investigation of him were to be opened, like one was opened for the Clinton emails by Obama’s DOJ, it won’t result in anything resembling justice, just like the Clinton investigation.
But they will one day receive the just punishment that they deserve, whether in this life or the next.
