No surprise, the moment the US election finished, the liberal media finally decided to publish what we on the conservative side have been saying for ages. They do this because it is finally politically convenient to do so. Publishing this story before would have hurt the Democrats in the election and they knew it.
The story in question is that the Democrat Governor of New York has been covering up nursing home deaths in the state by calling them hospital deaths during the Covid 19 pandemic.
This isn’t the first time the media have timed the publishing of harmful stories perfectly till after the election. They waited till right after the election to publish the Hunder Biden investigation, despite conservative media reporting on it for months before.
Americans don't want Cuomo "investigated" they want him ARRESTED

The New York Post has called for the FBI to investigate Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration after withholding the fatality information.
“Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide confessed privately this week that the administration suppressed the true COVID toll in the homes,” wrote the New York Post’s editorial board. “She also offered an apology — not to the thousands of New York families who needlessly lost loved ones thanks to her boss’s mismanagement but to Democratic lawmakers put in a difficult ‘political position with the Republicans’ by the coverup.” The Daily Wire reported.
The last bit of that statement is rather bizarre. Emagine apologizing to your political allies for publishing, rather than apologizing to the families who lost their lives.
Investigate Andrew Cuomo for obstruction of justice.
He killed his own citizens and then lied about it. @NYGovCuomo belongs in federal prison.
Pass it on.

The editorial continued:
“A federal investigation may be the only way to get the full truth of Team Cuomo’s order to nursing homes, populated by those most vulnerable to the virus, to take in COVID-positive patients. Not just the ‘what’ of how many lives it cost, but the ‘why’ behind this madness, and the months and months of coverup.”
It is reported that Melissa DeRosa, the governor’s chief of staff, had feared releasing the correct data because they were afraid of a DOJ investigation by the Trump Administration. Just what are they hiding?
The New York Post said, “15,000 people from nursing homes in New York died, a figure that the state previously suggested was closer to 8,500.” Rather shockingly, the Times editorial closed with the following; “New York needs to get to the bottom of Cuomo & Co.’s pack of lies. The public needs the full truth — and accountability.”
After this many democrat lawmakers called for Cuomo’s emergency powers to be revoked in a statement:
“Without exception, the New York State Constitution calls for the Legislature to govern as a co-equal branch of government,” they wrote. “While COVID-19 has tested the limits of our people and state – and, early during the pandemic, required the government to restructure decision making to render rapid, necessary public health judgments – it is clear that the expanded emergency powers granted to the Governor are no longer appropriate. While the executive’s authority to issue directives is due to expire on April 30, we urge the Senate to advance and adopt a repeal as expeditiously as possible.”
