Buried amid the stories about the January 6 events at the Capitol, the narrative surrounding Andrew Cuomo is beginning to take shape. If you recall, Cuomo resigned late last year after multiple reports of him sexually harassing or assaulting women during his time in office.
Multiple women accused Cuomo of touching them inappropriately, unwanted advances and more. Those allegations appear to be disappearing one by one in what can only be described as a typical process for corrupt Democrats.
He sentenced people to die in nursing homes, but he will not face charges for that. He touched these women, assaulting them, harassing them, but charges are being dropped one by one.
We were told the allegations were credible. The state Attorney General spoke out and said she concluded that Cuomo should resign from his office after his actions. She claims that her investigation provided evidence to support the claims by the women.
So why are the charges being dropped? Why are we not prosecuting Andrew Cuomo?
The prosecutor in Albany said that they cannot prove the accusations beyond a reasonable doubt. When has reasonable doubt ever stopped someone on the radical left from pursuing legal charges?
There was reasonable doubt in the Rittenhouse case, but they still pursued charges. There was significant doubt about the family from Missouri who protected their home with firearms during riots in their town. They were still charged.
Time and again, the radical left pursues charges against those they wish, but they play games with those who they want to protect. Which is exactly how this seems. What sort of corrupt game is Andrew Cuomo playing? What information does he have over these people to hold them in line and get the charges dropped?
The New York Post suggested in November that he was eyeing a political comeback, potentially as Attorney General of New York. This could be the reason that Leticia James, the current AG, chose not to charge Cuomo and to help protect his book money which came under scrutiny. James, who is completely focused on the Trump family, seems to have lost all interest in the Cuomo cases. How convenient.
Cuomo has not went after his replacement Kathy Hochul either. Cuomo openly endorsed her and she is not seen as a threat to Cuomo.
Andrew Cuomo also has a lot of cash at his disposal. He has over $18 million in his campaign war chest according to Politico. That gives him a significant head start on his competition. James would be seen as the biggest challenger to him and she announced her reelection bid in December after dropping out of the Governor’s race.
But I don’t think that Cuomo is targeting the AG spot in New York at all. I think that Cuomo has a chip on his shoulder after all that has happened to him. With $18 million dollars, that’s well over the $1 million that James won the AG spot with in her first run. That kind of money goes for a bigger race. A statewide race.
Cuomo is most likely eyeing a Senate position. Schumer is up for election this year and Gillibrand is up for election in 2024. That could be the reason that Schumer has decided now is the time to eliminate the filibuster and force through some legislation. Some have suggested that AOC will challenge Schumer. Add in a Cuomo to the mix and it could present Schumer a difficult challenge in winning reelection.
The more likely target is Gillibrand’s seat. Gillibrand has struggled with approval ratings in office. Her failed presidential campaign did not help raise her status either. While she is loved by the radical left for her extreme shift in views since taking office, it seems that most New Yorkers put her well behind Schumer.
Andrew Cuomo has name recognition that rivals that of Chuck Schumer. He has key people in positions of power across the state, a clean slate that was given to him by prosecutors, and money. Is there anything else that he needs in order to make a comeback? It seems the stars are aligning for him to jump back into politics once again.
Or perhaps it is just the fact that he has millions of dollars, was given a clean slate, and no one can rival his level of corruption.
