Bill de Blasio: Gov. Cuomo Lacks ‘Credibility,’ Likely Will Be Impeached
'Folks in this state and political leadership don’t believe in him anymore'
Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio blasted Governor Andrew Cuomo, predicting he would be impeached over multiple sexual misconduct allegations.
On Sunday’s “Face the Nation” on CBS, De Blasio said:
“I think he’ll try to hold out Margaret."
"I think he is used to getting things his way, and it’s been almost an imperial governorship," he added.
"But I gotta tell you, the folks in this state and political leadership don’t believe in him anymore," de Blasio said.
"He doesn’t have any credibility.”
"So I think an impeachment proceeding will begin."
"And I think he will be impeached, and perhaps right before that, he’ll decide to resign."
"That’s probably the most likely outcome right now, but I gotta tell you something."
"He should resign right now because he’s holding up our effort to fight COVID," he added.
"He’s literally in the way of us saving lives right now.”
Cuomo has been accused of sexual misconduct by a sixth woman who claims he touched her without her consent inside his mansion.
Cuomo claimed that, although he did touch women, it was not “inappropriate.”
“First, I’m not aware of any other claim,” he said.
“As I said last week, this is very simple: I never touched anyone inappropriately."
"I never made any inappropriate advances."
"No one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable."
