Washington, DC - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement ahead of President Joe Biden's meeting with Governor Andrew Cuomo at the White House today:
"This is President Joe Biden’s first test of whether he will have a truly independent Department of Justice or whether he will bend to the desperate political pressure from Governor Cuomo.
"Governor Cuomo, the Secretary to the Governor, and his senior team must be prosecuted immediately - both by the Attorney General of New York State and the U.S. Department of Justice. This bombshell admission of a coverup and the remarks by the Secretary to the Governor indicating intent to obstruct any federal investigation is a stunning and criminal abuse of power.
The Democrats are once again abusing their favorite constitutional clause – the Article of Impeachment – as a political weapon against President Trump. Their second round is not only as divisive and hypocritical as the first, but it is also unconstitutional.
