Democrat Assemblyman Ron Kim: It's Time to Impeach Andrew Cuomo

For a start!

The Democrat-on-Democrat broadside came less than a week after Kim, of Queens, alleged that Cuomo called him while at home, threatening to “destroy” his political career unless he helped mitigate damage from the ballooning scandal.

"It is time to be brave, to hold him accountable, to investigate his cover-up of nursing home information," wrote Kim -- whose uncle's death in a New York City nursing home is suspected to be tied to the pandemic -- in the piece for Newsweek.

"It is time to undo the bad policies that led to unnecessary deaths. And it is time to start the impeachment process," Kim wrote.

Here's that full Newsweek piece.

By now, much of the world has seen New York's Emmy-award winning governor and "COVID-19 hero" Andrew Cuomo come under fire for New York's growing nursing home scandal. A March 25 directive forcing nursing homes to take in patients who had tested positive for COVID-19 led to the spread of the disease among New York's most vulnerable population. And then, to cover his tracks, the Governor may have obstructed justice by suppressing life and death data from the Department of Justice; his office underestimated the number of nursing home deaths by up to fifty percent.

These actions, which Cuomo's aid Melissa DeRosa admitted to in a call with Democratic lawmakers that I was on, implicated all of us in the governor's cover-up. It would be the first of multiple attempts to do so.

On a private phone call, the governor berated me, threatened my career, and demanded that I issue a fabricated statement. He wanted me to deny what I heard on the call. "Are you an honorable man?" He yelled. "Who do you think you are?" This, too, was an attempt to rope me into his scheme.

Those of us who have worked with Cuomo are familiar with his tendencies. There is a long pattern of abusive tactics that the governor deploys when the public gets too close to learning the truth: cast a net far and wide, compromise as many unwitting accomplices, threaten retribution, then berate you for having the temerity to stand up.

I call this Cuomo's Predatory Inclusion Syndrome. And I won't be party to it.

I witnessed a crime, and on top of that, 15,000 nursing home residents died under his watch. Restoring faith in government for those families is my top and only priority, not the governor's PR image.

Read the whole thing. He gets into Cuomo's corrupt, last-minute, unpublicized grant of immunity the nursing homes -- who just happen to be big donors to Cuomo.

And whose silence he needed. And was willing to pay for.

Below, some of Kim's previous statements, accusing Cuomo of trying to pressure Kim into joining his cover-up.
