(Washington Examiner) Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accused the New York and Georgia grand jury investigations into former President Donald Trump of being politically motivated and part of a “cancer in our body politic.”
Cuomo, a Democrat who resigned in disgrace in 2021 amid sexual misconduct allegations, made the comments during an appearance this week on WABC 770 talk radio show “The Cats Roundtable.” The former governor told host John Catsimatidis that he “doesn’t understand” why Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was “putting such an emphasis” on Trump’s 2016 hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.
“You have a cynical public, they don’t believe anyone and when you start to see these prosecutors bring political cases, it just affirms everybody’s cynicism,” Cuomo said.
“I don’t believe a Democratic prosecutor just happens to be attacking a Republican. I don’t believe a Republican prosecutor just happens to be attacking a Democrat. I think it’s all politics, and I think that’s what the people of this country are saying,” he continued. “And I think it’s feeds the cynicism, and that’s the cancer in our body politic right now.”
