The lawmakers from the state of New York who had begun the impeachment process against Andrew Cuomo, the former governor of the state, have currently haunted the entire process. The accused Democratic governor submitted his resignation letter just this week. He will be completely detached from his office on the 25th of this month. This news was announced by Carl Heastie, the speaker of the state assembly.
Andrew Cuomo Has Five More Investigations
In the official statement given by Carl Hestie, it was stated that since the ex-governor Andrew Cuomo already gave his resignation, there was no need for the probe to investigate whether the accused governor should continue staying in his office or not. And he was also advised that according to the constitution of the state, nobody can remove or impeach an elected official who no longer holds the concerned office. This was told by Charles Levine, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee.
This decision came as bad news for all the critics of the convicted ex-governor of the state of New York, Andrew Cuomo, as well as some lawmakers of the Democratic Party. They stated their wishes to continue with the process of impeaching the concerned person even though he had already filed for his resignation letter.
Hestia further stated that had Andrew Cuomo not submitted his resignation letter, he would have ended up getting impeached anyway as all the evidence proves that he had carried out some serious crimes. Not only is he guilty of sexual misbehavior, but he also has misused his power to a great extent. It was stated that there are a total of five legal investigations to be carried out against the accused Democratic politician as of now.
